“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Went for a lunch meeting with a friend and was very pleased!
Great menu selection, even for picky eaters, and those who aren't used to eating natural. Very satisfying, and reasonably priced.

“Yummy and healthy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Coconut french toast is exceptional. Bacon thick and delicious. Had the mocha coffee which was very good. Regular coffee very good as well. Fresh ingredients. Superb service. Only downside was siting in the draft which was uncomfortable and cooled off the food. We and another couple asked if they could close the door to the outside but the owner refused. Odd considering the other great service We moved and enjoyed our lunch but it did spoil the experience a bit.

“Food was amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This restaurant makes good whole food and even the coffee is awesome. A little eclectice and you'll find a few unusual folks there, but worth the visit. Go for the egg and quinoa dishes

“Maybe too healthy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Four stars for customer service; two stars for food.

Looking for somewhere different to have breakfast, we dropped into the Naked Café. The weather was beautiful, so all of the outside tables were taken and we were seated at a tiny table inside. Not being a pancake or French toast aficionado, and not wanting to spend $8.50 on a bowl of fruit, and trying to be wise in my food choice, I ordered the Pesto Scramble and my husband ordered the Artichoke Scramble.

The Pesto Scramble was soooo disappointing. If you like pesto, this is the dish for you. It was too overpowering for me and I just couldn’t eat it. The baby organic greens that accompanied it were delicious as was the spinach tortilla. The Artichoke Scramble was tasty and the herb potatoes were very good.

When the server came to take away our plates, she noticed that the Pesto Scramble was virtually untouched and I mentioned that I didn’t care for it. She offered to get me something else, but we didn’t want to wait around, and I told her the salad and tortilla I ate was plenty for me.

When she came back, she told us that she talked with the manager and they were not going to charge us for the dish I didn’t eat. We didn’t ask them to do that, they volunteered which was very gracious of them. That speaks volumes to how they value their customers.

Although the menu didn’t really inspire me to return, we will, simply because of the courteous and caring manner in which we were treated. Think we’ll opt for lunch the next time!!

“Fresh and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I had a grilled chicken wrap with peanut sauce, and carrot ginger soup. The wrap was extremely tasty and full of flavor. The carrot ginger soup was okay, but had a bit too much on the ginger side of things for my taste. They have a great selection of cocktails and I had "Red with envy", which was most refreshing. The pancakes my friend's kid got came with a smiley face on them, so that was fun. They also had lots for vegetarians/vegans. Scrumptious!
