Great good, okay service

Being vegetarian in the south is not great, so being able to eat at a dedicated vegetarian restaurant is a real treat. Everything on the menu looked good, and I ended up getting the Space Cowboy. The patty was a little dry but still good. Overall the burger was great and the bbq sauce they used... read more

Sorry, will have to go against the tide of positives here... With the exception of the sweet potato fries, we really didn't enjoy our meals. But in all fairness to Saturn, we should probably have left when we realised that we were in a Vegan/Vegetarian only cafe. We were in Santa Cruz for the day and as it approached about... More

Went here due to other places being packed. Restaurant opens later than others at 10am but worth the detour. Great food and nice selection. Prices were good. Mimosa tasted lovely! Would definitely recommend. Decor and atmosphere were also good.

Really great food, pretty affordable prices! The waitress was a doll, loved their service and they had Santa Cruz brewery beer on tap which was a nice local touch. The atmosphere was neat, haha very spacey!!! Really wish we would have made it back for dessert, their dessert menu looked amazing as well.

We really liked the vegeburger that is house made with all the fixin's. The salads are very good as well. Very nice staff. An easy walk if you are staying at the beach. Pass on the brownie dessert.

Perhaps a bit pricey but the food is good. Expect to pay $30.00 + for lunch with a meal and beverage for two. I am grateful to have them as a healthy vegetarian/vegan option in downtown Santa Cruz.

Went here for lunch in Saturday when driving through Santa Cruz. Food was delicious and staff was super friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone vegan - the FLT and vegan donuts are amazing! The homemade lemonade is excellent too.

Delicious fresh food, quirky themed place with 80's music rocking out. Staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the taquitos and Santa Fe salad.

I was in Santa Cruz to visit family and went to the Saturn Cafe with my daughter and her family. My daughter and her husband are vegans (I am not) and this was a great choice for all. The menu is but all items can be prepared as vegan including milkshakes. I had a barbecue "chicken" sandwich, which was very... More
