Ordered breakfast, and waited _literally_ 50 minutes to get our food! The cook wandered in some time after we placed our order, clearly drunk (smell of alcohol, shaky hands). He makes a comment about being overwhelmed. (We're 4 people, and that's overwhelming?) I must say that the food was good, fresh and healthy; but not quite enough to fill you.... More

Not much open this time of year, but Debbie, the charming and knowledgeable owner, makes scrumptious organic baked goods and also carries lots of natural products. Great morning coffee. She was a fount of info and steered us right for dinner also. Great place, especially if your no-tell doesn't have any breakfast.

After a hot and sweaty day at the lake, my family and I were excited to have a fresh lunch at the only organic/healthy restaurant in town. We walked in ordered some kombucha and placed our food order, but the lady behind the counter said she couldn't make it. We asked if she was sold out- she wasn't and had... More

Thank you for your input. I clearly remember waiting on you and would like to clear things up. Misunderstandings do happen. When you asked me if we sold wheat grass shots I had told you no and I had said we had organic wheat grass powder to put in a smoothie if you would like one. I offered to make... More

Turtleback Oasis has a great selection of gluten free and organic foods as well as tasty smoothies and sandwiches. Owner, Deb makes an effort to offer locally grown produce, a wide selection of supplements and vitamins and pretty much take care of all your health needs.

Friendly, family run business with lots of great natural living food and health care products to brows through while you wait for you food. Breakfast was yummy, had a mango smoothie that was delish!

This is a great place to find those hard-to-locate "health food" or vitamin/supplement items. The staff is friendly and helpful. They carry a wide variety of organic food items and other alternative health options. Their prices are reasonable too.

You can pick up that homeopathic medication, a great lunch or organic veggies and GMO free products at this small but surprisingly complete store. I usually find what I need but if not, they will order it for me.

Our favorite place for breakfast and lunch and to shop when we make our own. The owners take great care to have and serve responsible, delightful dishes for people who care about what they eat. The atmosphere is laid back and open. Don't miss this gem!
