The two of us went here for lunch. The mains were okay. I had a Space Cowboy burger and it seemed blander than I thought it would be, and not quite the consistency I wanted. I finished it, however! Dessert was a Blondie Brownie, which...More

After feeling hungry after a workout, my friends and I went to Saturn, intrigued by the diner atmosphere. I ordered the burrito while my friends ordered the Space Cowboy burger. While the nachos we had to start were satisfying, that is where it ended. The...More

You can order everything vegan including burgers and burritos. The best time to visit this place is their happy hour. All appetizer half price. They serve in deliciously large portions. Honestly, we visited this place twice when we're in Berkeley and close to campus. One...More

Only very average cuisine. The sweet potato fries were overdone. They use a lot of soy based meat substitute instead of making delicious plant based cuisine. The salad dressing was overly sweet and tasted like it came out of a bottle. Despite it being relatively...More

Waitstaff was lovely -- very friendly and on-point. Retro design is a nice touch, and the music (80s mix) was perfect. Will definitely return when visiting Berkeley again!

Despite many windows, atmosphere still not bright. Filthy unisex toilets. Good service. Food ok. Coconut soup very watery, not well seasoned. Good salads. Good sandwiches. Seemed popular with students. Tofu dishes good.Appetizer platter not very tasty. Would look elswhere if dining with vehans again.

Went for breakfast and other than the vegetarian sausage (quite dry, try the vegetarian bacon instead) the food was great. Friendly service, most all food homemade, and really excellent organic coffee. The Onion strings we highly recommended

I went here to get a quick bite around 5pm. There were a lot of choices on the menu, many healthy options. The food was not expensive, it was clean and the staff friendly. I really enjoyed the onion fries with dairy free ranch. The...More
