Saturn Cafe is the vegetarian version of the classic diner, featuring breakfast options, "burgers", salads, sodas, and milkshakes. From what I could tell, no meat is served, period. Although the menu features "burgers", these are all delicious veggie burgers featuring a variety of toppings. Non-vegetarians will be surprised at how good the food is, and vegetarians will be thrilled at... More

Was searching for a breakfast/brunch place to crash when we found this quiet little cafe by the corner of the street. Not busy and no rush... thought it would be an average place to get something. Don't judge the book by its cover... that's the lesson we learnt... there was no meat in any of their food but the food... More

We were looking for a delicious burger, and Saturn was the right place for it. Good service and a funny decoration make this a great place. They have nice beers too, but that is a little overpriced.

If you're searching for great vegetarian fare or vegan food that is well prepared and well presented then this is the place to go. The menu presents many great choices and the prices are quite reasonable.

I went here for a late lunch while in Santa Cruz. The place was quiet which was a nice break from the day. I ordered a gluten free and vegan dish which was really good. I thought it was a little odd to have guacamole, salsa, and some other creamy substance(?) served in individual bowls next to the tofu soy... More

If your a vegetarian you'll never have been to a diner that has you so swamped for choice. Burgers, sandwiches, salads and soups everything is 100% vegetarian with plentiful choice for vegans also. As a fellow meat lover this admirably made me sceptical at first however the food was still lovely! Their hot sauce was not the best I've ever... More
