This is a must-try if you are traveling to Santa Teresa. The food is just as all the other reviews say -- creative, delicious, and super healthy. I stayed at their boutique hotel and became great friends with the owners Edi and Gal. They have created a really friendly environment underneath the upstairs yoga studio. Probably my favorite part is... More

Olam was delicious and all kinds of options for vegetarians. We had breakfast there with friends. The granola with yogurt and fruit and the typico meals were great. It was clean and staff was friendly. We will definitely be back! Thank you olam. Look forward to trying lunch there.

Whoa, whoa whoa.... Hidden Gem... tucked back off the main road in Santa Teresa, this little spot it amazing. Clean, fresh, feel good whole food goodness. With an extensive menu its hard to choose something as it all sounds superb. The best part was that each food tastes as it should, simple and pure. The atmosphere is lovely, with thoughtful... More

Olam is by far is the best restaurant in town if you're looking for fresh, healthy, organic, local, vegan / vegetarian, or gluten free. Or all of the above! All the food and juices are fresh made to order and the pastries are made daily. I take all my friends and family here when they come to town!

The food at Olam is all natural. They don't even have ketchup since it's not natural. It's a cute restaurant with scrumptious food. I wish i had found this gem earlier because I would have come to eat breakfast here all the time. I highly recommend this place to come eat breakfast. You won't regret it!

I went here every day of our stay for their coconut iced coffee (like a nutritious frappuccino), their delicious smoothies, incredible array of superfood breakfasts and to-die-for salads. Nicely tucked off the main drag, in a quiet yoga sanctuary. Awesome vegan, gluten-free options. I wanted to bring this place back to New York with me, but the bitter impossibilty of... More

Came here one morning to meet a friend who was staying here, and got really hungry once I saw their breakfast menu. Had THE best oatmeal Ive ever had, and had a nice italian espresso with it too (good coffee is hard to get in ST). The prices were pretty fair for being such a fancy place! Loved it so... More
