Very filling. I always walk away feeling good healthy and satisfied. l have been to most of the Native Foods around the country. We frequent the original by the founder Tanya in Palm Springs since 1994.

This restaurant is located right in the middle of The Camp. Seating is available inside or outside and fills up quickly at lunch time. The menu has a variety of bowls, burgers, sandwiches and salads. Many choices for extras. The menu was smaller than the he menu for Native Foods in Denver, but still a great selection. There is a... More

Every meal is delicious and their teas and juices are also very tasty and refreshing. The atmosphere is very interesting in a large, glass, yurt shaped room with a huge ceiling fan. Make sure to join their mailing list to get great deals and special offers!

I work near here and it is a great option to stop in for lunch and get something that is filling and healthy. Yes, parking at the Camp is difficult, but they offer valet parking if you're really in a jam. And besides, where is it not hard to find parking at lunch time around here? Also, yes, it isn't...

This place is amazing. Had such a hard time deciding what to eat. The chicken sandwich was simply amazing. Will definitely be back next time I'm in the LA area.

It's vegan food, so that's a good start right there. But the veggie burger and the vegan nachos were just good, not amazing. I agree with previous comments that the atmosphere is like a cafeteria. It's not bad, just not awesome. The food alone is 4/5, but the atmosphere brings it down 1.

On a business trip, my vegan colleague and I found this amazing place. You order at the register and then seat yourself. There are booths and pub style seating inside and tables with fire pits outside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I do like vegan food but was not sure what to order so the hostess suggested the... More

I'm not a vegan and never imagined vegan food could taste good, but the dishes prepared here are all both very healthy and tasty! My only complaint is that the booths to sit in were a little tight, but not worth docking them on the review because the food was so well-prepared. I'm impressed!

We stopped by Native Foods before heading out to South Coast Plaza and loved our lunch. We shared the "chicken" avocado club with steamed kale and seasoned fries. The food is super fresh and delicious and I'm sure non-vegetarians would enjoy this restaurant as well. The drinks are fabulous too. It's hard to choose from the lavender lemonade, watermelon Fresca... More

My daughter and I had dinner here one night. It was dimly lit, cold and the booth seats weren't that comfortable. It really felt like being in a cafeteria. You order at the cashier and they bring you your food. The yummy exotic drinks with free refills are self-served, so yes, it's casual here. The food was excellent. I had... More
