Because I value clean eats and it's a great location form the beach we have been here twice. The food is fine and atmosphere fine service fine. Nothing unique or special. Not understanding not bad just average place to decent ingredients.

Breakfast with a group of friends after a beach walk - outside seating in a quiet courtyard (we were early -before the stores opened). Great breakfast menu with interesting and delicious flavor combinations, sweet, savory, spicy, mild. Well worth the two block walk from the beach.

The food is always so fresh and as the name promises, no additives or preservatives just good tasty cooking. We always sit outside in the courtyard but there is plenty of indoor seating too. Well worth a visit for lunch.

This place is truly amazing, yes, it's very healthy, but they make healthy incredibly delicious. All the staff was friendly and helpful.

I only had the chicken, the serving was... More

We eat here two to three times everytime we go to the beach for a week. Food is great and friendly service too. Husband loves the Ying and Yang and organic pancakes with 100% maple are the bomb.

Every once in a while, you don't feel like fussing in the kitchen but you're not looking for complex chef intricate food. You just want clean, healthy ingredients in a rice bowl, a wrap/sandwich, or a salad. Then Naked Cafe is your place. It's my wife's favorite but I've learned to like it too. Staff is straight ahead knowledgeable and... More

The food may be fresh, organic and have the pretension that everything they serve is super healthy, but I'm not sure that this is a place for everybody. Actually, I figure that the quality of the food they serve is about the same as would be served in any other reputable restaurant. If you're a health oriented person, this could... More

This is not a place I would pick, but my sales rep thought to sounded good. Boy was I impressed. I had a turkey sandwich and it is outstanding! The menu is easy to read and use.

This place was awesome! Very diverse and fun menu, something for everyone. Staff was efficient, cheery and nice. Indoor and patio seating. Only drawback was the menu was so good it was hard to make a decision! I'll go back....

We had lunch there twice on our visit to Carlsbad and loved it. It has a very health conscious menu. I especially loved the ginger chicken tacos with the coconut fried rice!
