After visiting Point Loma and the Cabrillo National Monument, we stopped for a quick lunch here. They had many salad dishes which were fresh, but a little expensive. You order your food, get a number and they deliver it to your table. We sat outside to enjoy the weather, however the proximity to the airport made for planes flying overhead... More

We found this restaurant through trip advisor and were not disappointed. We both ordered the happy vegan and split an order of grilled mixed veggies. The happy vegan plate was excellent with a really nice variety of food. The grilled mixed veggies were excellent tasting but came luke warm, which was disappointing.

Have eaten here many times. Local food and creative meals. You can customize your meal. Salads, full plates, sandwiches, etc. All good.

Okay, this is not a cheap place. They use top end ingredients and the staff is near flawless. Two salads and iced tea was $31. That said, the Atmos is pleasant and the food quality is second to none.

Great food, lots of options and good size portions. Healthy food, and still have lots of dessert and beer/wine choices if you want to splurge. I especially like their drink menu, lots of juices, kambucha, teas.

The first thing I noticed is EVERYONE is so friendly! What a change from the usual! Smiles everywhere! That set such a positive, welcoming tone for this visit. Service was very efficient. The food was delicious and plentiful. I actually felt good about eating out. While knew healthy food dining could be so good?!

Salads like nowhere else with the freshest ingredients and herbal soft drinks. I've been to both Liberty Station and Mission Valley locations and love them both.
