We were travellers wanting to eat cheap, healthy food and this place was perfect for us! The menu has lots of salads, burgers and sandwiches all less than $10 and the food is delicious! There is limited table service (go up to the counter to order, collect your own water and cutlery) but the staff are really friendly. The cafe... More

I usually don't choose to go to Natural Café, but I am glad I did. I had a delicious arugula salad and the red potato soup. Wonderful.

Nicely decorated and friendly staff but the most important thing the food was disappointing. We ordered sandwiches with turkey. They were dry and without taste

My husband and I have wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. Our experience tonight was horrendous. After placing our order we waited just about 35 minutes to receive our food. We counted at least four, maybe five parties that arrived after us, ate their meals and left while we waited for ours. When our food did arrive,... More

Though you place your order at the counter, each time I have been there the winning spirit of the service folks has been instrumental in my selection, and helped me through the decision making with insightful feedback. The options for someone on a restricted diet are manyfold, and everything is fresh, with an array of condiments to dress it up... More

Vegetarian and some vegan choices alongside the occasional turkey and fish selections. Great menu and very friendly wait staff. Get your own utensils and place service (salt, pepper, condiments, napkins) after you order. Also if you're good a juggling, get your cucumber or lemon water and glass after placing your order, or make a second trip up. Nice views from... More

This is the place to go if you have diet restrictions as they have all sorts of options. Gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian, vegan - you name it! The food tastes healthy so you're not going to get the mouth watering deliciousness of a burger, but for health food - it's good.

I have been to their 2 Santa Barbara locations as well, and their food is always consistent. Lots of vegetarian options for very reasonable prices. It's very casual with a walk up counter to order, and a seat-yourself atmosphere that's great for families. I love their old towne salad with gauc, carrots, tomato, brown rice and feta, as well as...

Good healthy food. We loved the pineapple coconut smoothie. It was like dessert in a glass. The sandwiches (turkey) was huge. The service was fast. Wasn't too busy.

Very fresh homemade, largely organic with some vegan choices. Cobb salad and fresh hummus are my favorites. Good variety of dishes, reasonably priced. Goid place to eat on a Thursday and watch the Farmer's Market activity!
