Great gluten free pizza and I also tried their gluten free pancakes for breakfast which were very yummy also. Just up the hill a bit, very nice clean place.

I try not to eat at the same location more than once while on vacation, but Olam is the exception! Ate there 3 times and could have every day of my visit. Food was so unique, creative and delicious, not to mention healthy! Staff was super friendly and attentive.

Delicious, and nutritious food. The space is also beautiful. We couldn't stay away and went back several times over the course of our stay. We would highly recommend Olam!

My husband and I stumbled upon this place one afternoon and went back for lunch almost every day. The meals and salads are delicious, and the smoothies are the best I have ever had. All of this in a calm, relaxing atmosphere with excellent service. The staff is personable, pleasant, and very accommodating.

After eating here one morning, I almost decided to leave my real life behind and become a surfer/yogi. The food was fresh, delicious and made me want to be a healthier person... Alas, I have returned to the real world, but if you're looking for tasty but healthy food, this IS the place. Highly recommend the Olam breakfast and any... More

From our short stay, Olam seems to cater to a clientele that embrace the qualities of crystals and chakra. But even if find yourself with more empirical sensibilities, you will still likely enjoy the myriad of fresh and healthy breakfast choices. The coffee was good and the cacao smoothie an interesting concoction. The eggs and were fruit were delicious and... More

This place is not only underneath a yoga studio, the interior/vibe is stylish and healthy and the food is amazing! Since it's located a short walk from the main road it's quiet and relaxed. Service is also very good!

As a gluten free vegan, I'm really picky in the placed I choose to eat in. This place is amazing! Good organic food, a lot of delicious vegan options, and really great smoothies! For me - it's the best restaurant in Santa Teresa!
