“Treasure found!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is a great organic health food store with a cafe and bakery in the front end and a small restaurant in the back. The food was great - all organic and freshly prepared, they even had organic margaritas.

“Healty and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Via Organica is one of my regular stops for a coffee or a full meal. The food choices are excellent for vegetarians and carnivores. I'm not impressed with their organic beer, but the wine is good. They also have a full selection of packaged organic food, household and personal products, breads, cookies and snacks to go in their store. It is a popular place for locals. The service is friendly, but sometimes slow to get the check.

“Unforgettable aromas from the fresh produce.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

When we entered this charming place for lunch we were struck by the intoxicating aromas fom the fresh produce. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, I had pizza and greek salad. The fresh mixed juice was a beautiful green, but bland. I asked for agave and ice and made it work. If I lived in San Miguel I would be eating there at least once a week.

“Overrated, expensive, mold on veggies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

I have no idea why people eulogize about this place.

The only difference that I could see between the vegetables here in Via Organica's grocery department versus the local fresh food markets was that Via Organica's were 3 times the price and some items were covered in mold. MOLD IS MOLD it is far from healthy.

The cafe did not fare much better, my hummus vegetable sandwhich was okay but nothing special.
