“Amazing food, slow service”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

The food at Samara Organics was excellent. The staff working the counter were friendly and very hard-working... but understaffed for the amount of business they were doing. One day there was one young woman working feverishly by herself - prepping, cooking, and working the register. Then the gentleman who was probably the owner came strolling out to ask if everything was OK...but didn't jump behind the counter! Long waits each day. Farmers' market weak - almost no produce, too many dogs (with owners).

The staff and now they have doubled in size so there so many new products. Wish I could have packed more home.

“Organic Affordable Friendly!”

Loved that the Kamboucha is made and bottled locally and everything on the menu is fresh & delicious. Try the Coco Banana smoothie!

“Skip the breakfast”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We had the breakfast special of scrambled eggs and were pretty disappointed. It took almost twenty minutes to make what amounted to a couple of eggs and a slice of hard-as-brick toast. I'm sure their other offerings are tasty, but what we ordered wasn't one of them sadly, they were just basic eggs.

May come back to try other things and update our review accordingly!

“Delicious sandwiches and bread”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

We had a delicious lunch at Samara Organics today. The hummus sandwiches and the zucchini bread were very yummy and fresh. The coconut water was also very refreshing on a such a hot day. The only suggestion that I have would be to have more seating and umbrellas available for customers outside. We plan on returning to try the coffee and breakfast dishes soon.
