This is a place I visit quite often. Their food is healthy, and they have a good selection. My favorite is the gobbler burger, one of the best turkey burgers in town. Another favorite of mine is the Baja tacos. Also fantastic! The service is always friendly and quick, never had a bad experience here and been coming here for... More

It is such a treat to have so many vegetarian options to choose from. I had the Buddha Burrito and my brother had the stir fry. The portions are ample and the food is fresh and super tasty. The staff were absolutely lovely and although it's not an overly fancy place to eat, it was worth checking out. it was... More

We have lunch here almost every day when we visit Santa Barbara. The whole family likes the place. For a place that is natural and healthy, and has its fair share of Tofu foods, the food for a guy like me is pretty good. I had the chicken tacos and every time find the chicken to be deliciously marinated. My... More

You can sit inside or outside have a nice relaxing meal. I took my sandwich back to the office and shared with a co-worker. I like how they give you a lil side of chips and salsa with your sandwich, so good. My co-worker loved it! Great fresh ingredients!

We are here at the recommendation of our hotel because we didn't want fast food. Waking distance from our place (the sandman inn) and not pricey. Good all natural food, smoothies, veggie options and priced not to break the bank. I'd go here again if we were staying in Santa Barbara longer. Worth going to if your staying in the... More

the food was good and healthy and large portions, so I only ordered the half portion of Caesar salad- everything was fresh and tasty. Good location and plenty of choices

This restaurant is very different from typical establishments. They offer a wide variety of fresh food prepared to order. My wife tries to eat vegetarian whenever possible, and the vegetarian burrito she had was delicious. I had a hamburger which was also good. If you want a casual, informal cafeteria style eatery, I highly recommend this.

The upside to this restaurant is that there are some vegan and vegetation options, and some low fat healthy options too - likes steamed vegetables over brown rice and beans. So if you are vegan and are looking for something non-greasy and healthy to eat, you will find something here. The downside is that when compared to the lively adjacent... More
