“Healthy, delicious treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Wonderful healthy meals including vegan choices. This small, quiet cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating. Want something a little different from the menu and the owner will accommodate you. Great lunch stop!

“Excellent organic quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Hard to find, fresh, organic, healthier food on Catalina. Felt like most places were beer and fried food crowd. This place was fresh, tasty all around nice.

“Amazing everytime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Want some amazing food.... something that's healthy? do you like homemade soups? I've been to Catalina several times over the last 5 years and this is my favorite stop everyday for lunch. I had the leanist pastrami sandwich I've ever eaten in my life... not a bunch of fat and gristle like you get a most places. The chicken salad is to die for. Get anything with soup homemade soups are ridiculous. Can you tell it like this place? The owner is very friendly and remembered me from a trip previous over a year before maybe because I couldn't stop gushing over the food. So if you're looking for something healthy but extremely delicious this is the place for you.

“GOOD FOOD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Lunch counter--order and sit, they bring the food. Fresh, but it took a very long time (and they were not crowded). After sitting for 10minutes, the hostess cme out to tell me that they were out of what I ordered, and please choose something else. Iced tea is self-serve from a pitcher in a fridge. No free refills. Ice cubes are in a bowl in the fridge. Crowded inside seating, nice patio, but no one clears and cleans the tables. Good food, but too many other problems will keep me from going back

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

The sandwiches we eat were good, but I felt it was a bit pricey for the portions. Only problem was they forgot my coffee and came out with it as I was finishing my meal. It was a bit cold and did have much taste. The menu selection was great and the food was very wholesome,
