“Delicious (and I'm not vegan)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

A friend took me here and I have been going back once a week ever since. The food is unique and delicious, the concept is cool and original, the atmosphere is zen and friendly. All in all, you will leave Casa de Luz feeling very full, very satisfied and fulfilled. Support this local restaurant! You do not have to be vegan or vegetarian or macrobiotic to enjoy this place! The lentil red curry was fabulous, the yam and ginger soup - amazing. The lemon and lavender cookies finish it all off wonderfully with a cuppa. This place has the most perfect vibe. Go and give it a whirl as you will be all the better for it.

“Rock on, good folks at luz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Absolutely fantastic culinary experience.
Located in the North Park neighbourhood of San Diego.
We are not vegetarians and decided to give this restaurant a try, with two toddlers in tow. The kids loved it (they have gorgeous wooden children's tables, too), we loved it. Food was delicate, absolutely delicious, seasonal and detailed to the finest level.
If you hv to ear out, treat yourself and visit cafe du luz.

“Great Ambiance, serves beer, order the chocolate shake!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The ambiance, is a 11+ and the beer and wine is a bonus. I'm not a vegetarian, but the food was pretty good. They serve 1 soup, 1 salad and 1 entree per meal, not a lot to choose from. Mi esposa ordered the salad. It was a mixed green with a strange red crumpled topping, not so great. My entre was quite a bit better. A plate with a sample of lots of healthy stuff, and some of it tasted pretty good. My bambino ordered The chocolate shake and it was AMAZING. So why would I give it such a stellar score? Simple. Portlandia. If you want to see San Diego's version of Portlandia. Go here. It's hilarious, the people are hard core vegetarians and have a certain aire about them. They could tell that I'm a carnivore, so I wasn't greeted very warmly, but we loved it anyway. Fantasticly large tables, a beer and wine selection, beautiful ambiance and tasty Chocolate Shakes.
