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!

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

This resaturant is near my work and I regularly take out lunch. Everything's good and prepared quickly. The staff couldn't be more friendly and portions are generous.

A good place to get healthy food. It is a casual restaurant where you order and carry your food to your table. There are 3 Natural Cafe in the Santa Barbara area.
