Vegan cafe; good tasting food and nice service

This was the first time I've eaten at Native Foods. It is pretty difficult to find an all vegan restaurant in Palm Springs, so I'm happy I found this one. You order at the counter and the items are brought to your table. The cashier was friendly and helpful. I had the bowl of soup. They... read more

The food was ok, but the service was horrible. We waited 55minutes to get our food, and I'm not exaggerating either the receipt had the time the order. It literally took 55 minutes

Needed a quick vegan lunch and Native Foods fit the bill. It is a no frills cafe boasting yummy sandwiches, salads, wraps and creative iced lemonades and teas. We loved it and wish they'd bring one to Nashville, TN. It would be a hit!

There are way too few vegan / vegetarian restaurants in the area. This one is outstanding. The menu is creative. This is an out of the way hole in the wall kind of place. You can eat vegan and your friend can get ribs at the rib place next door. After you are done you can do transformative rolfing (I... More

During past visits to Palm Springs we always make a point of eating lunch at Native Foods. In the past I've enjoyed, veg burgers, salads, etc. This time we tried the nachos. They arrived looking fabulous, but the taste wasn't as good as they looked. First of all, they were cold. In my opinion, nachos ought to be at least... More

Happycow.net vegan food web site directed me to this little café, hidden inside a shopping center, ironically located right next to a BBQ meat joint. But vegans should be scared away, as this restaurant offers quite possibly some of the BEST vegan food I've ever tasted! On my second visit, I tried their yummy "chicken wings", as well as a...

I've dined here for many years and have always enjoyed their 100% vegan meals. Today was the first time I had the Native Chili and was absolutely delish and couldn't believe no meat in it. And liked the dollop on top of it. I think cashew cheese. Cornbread was delish, too. I've always enjoy their Chicken Run Ranch Burger. I... More

Vegan or not, you'll love the food here. Hearty and tasty the food always arrives fast and friendly. I recommend the chicken wings and the tacos. The burgers are great too. The fries and potato salad sides are some of the best I've had. I wish I had room to try some of their desserts, they look great as well.... More

You order at the counter and get a number so not really a restaurant so much as a cafe. The food however, very good vegan. The only true vegan place in the Palm Springs area! Most entrees are about $10 lunch or dinner (same menu) so not too expensive for the quality of food you are getting.
