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. I picked the grainy bread and it was so fresh! The turkey tasted amazing! Great Dijon mustard and the chips & salsa were... More

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!

Went here with three friends for breakfast. Service was slow but the actual food was great. Casual, comfortable place with great location in Carlsbad. I would definitely come back.

Took my teen son for brunch here. Portions are very generous, outdoor seating on the patio is lovely, service is great. A little bit of a splurge in terms of price.

We were really excited to try this place. Reviews of the coconut french toast made it sound great. We didn't think it had much flavor at all and it was burnt on the edges. Also got a bowl of the slow cooked oatmeal with berries. That was ok, but nothing special either. Coffee was just ok. We thought we would... More

I came both on a Sunday morning and on a weekday. Both times I had to wait outside and when I finally got in had to wait quite a bit for the food. But... The food was great and the service amazing!

I meet with four friends at this restaurant about twice a month for brunch and chat time. The food is always delicious, atmosphere relaxing, and servers are very nice.
