“Great food...great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Loved this place for a casual meal...the service staff were quite possibly the happiest, friendly, and helpful staff I have ever encountered. The food was so tasty and a good value...we went there 2x during our recent trip to Palm Springs because we loved it so much

“best burger in the coachella valley!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

voted last year by the local paper the best burger in the valley is Native Foods Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger!
It is vegan so the cheese bacon and burger are all pure veggie and of course VERY tasty and
much better for you
I really love the scorpion burger best-it has a fabulous tangy sauce and avocado

“Food better than average but location and space was poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It’s a chain located in various cities in the west as well as a little further east, in Chicago, Illinois. The food is vegan and the atmosphere is fast-casual.

The day we were there, the place was packed and it took about 20 minuets to get to the counter to place our order, and then10 minutes before there was a table available (worried that we would have to stand to eat our food) and then about 20 to 30 minutes before our food was served to the table we managed to grab. The place is small.

We ordered the Native Nachos ($8.00 - Feb.2013) to split between 2 of us and it was enough for lunch. They were very good but a little bit different from eating real beef nachos (we eat meat too). I enjoyed them more in the beginning, for about half way I started to grow tired of them although my husband thoroughly enjoyed them all the way through.
We loved the Watermelon Fresca drink which is sweetened with organic agave.

And for a small desert we shared the Carrot Cream Cheese Cupcake ($3.00) which had too much cream cheese frosting for my taste. Once again though, my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. Their deserts are dairy-free and refined sugar-free.

You can go to their web site by using the first two words of their name (leave out the Cafe) and add a .com.

“Oh, yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The food here is fresh, delicious, and yes, vegetarian! Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will be delightfully surprised. We ate here twice in six days, and would love to have had more opportunity to try more dishes. It was refreshing to have tasty and healthy, with flavor!!
