Vegetarian delight!

Our family eats here weekly as there's something for everyone. Vegetarian dishes, chicken and fish- no beef. Old Town salad, stir fry and pasta specials are favorites. Beer and wine available. Splurge on one of their amazing shakes.

The food was delicious, I'm a vegetarian and they had several vegetarian options, such as burritos and quesadillas. I decided to just go with their grilled cheese which has tomato in it and is made with nine grain bread. It has numerous burgers as well, especially veggie burgers. This place is delicious and I recommend it for you to bring... More

My wife and myself totally loved eating at Natural Cafe. We had the red potato, spinach and tomato soup, the old town salad, sauteed tofu,veggie lasagna and the carrot juice. We loved it! We know where to eat the next time we are in SLO.

If you like natural food served in a friendly, casual setting, this place is for you. Definitely not fancy, but the food is always excellent and healthful. Nice staff, too!

I had the lunchtime special of Turkey tacos and a cup of garlic potato soup which was great, and my wife had a baked potato, and half Greek salad. Very fresh and tasty. Also served by by very friendly, and helpful staff

Don't get the tostada salad. It's not in a tostada, and there's nothing but greasy chips in it, barely any greens at all.

The nachos chiquitos were really good - but I'm not sure you can mess up nachos. Fresh food but quite bland. I ordered the vegetable spud (baked potato with fresh steamed vegetables and shredded cheese). I had to use a ton of pepper and salsa to give it any flavor at all, the cheese wasn't melted at all, and the... More

Natural Cafe is a great choice for healthier restaurant food! I visited with my husband on a week day for lunch. We were both impressed by the variety of menu offerings. They even serve beer and wine. We started with Nachos Grande, no chicken, and there was so much we took 2/3 home! I ordered the Spiritual Spinach Salad with... More
