“Best meal on our trip..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We have just returned from a meal at Cafe 21... I expected it to be healthy and boring but I was very pleasantly surprised... The food was absolutely DEVINE! Try the mixed chips to start and the scallops or steak for main.. Service was fab too! We will definitely be back!

“Best food we've ever eaten”

My daughter and I had the mixed fries, tapenade flatbread, and the vegan saute. Everything was so delicious! Staff was friendly.

“Eclectic Organic Goodness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Cafe 21 was our first stop when we landed in San Diego. First off, the hostess was hilarious and oh so helpful! Second, we were seated nearly instantly, and the cafe has a nice casual atmosphere. Thirdly, the food speaks for itself. Every plate comes with a generous amount of fruit, and they are there are countless gluten free, local, and organic options. You must stop by Cafe 21 asap!

“Nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We went over there looking for natural and health food and we've got it.
Service was very good and the food is well and properly served, freshly prepared once ordered (!!!)
We had vegan and veggie food as well as crepes and flat bread (say pizza) and all different tastes were a nice and positive surprises
, plenty of natural flavor and prepared with first class ingredients
Price is fair for the quality you have
Suggested!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Sangria, sangria, and more sangria! This place has a variety of sangria that will make your soul sing! The best part is that it's never the same. Oh yeah, the food...also amazing and healthy! A must have if you're in the Normal Heights or Downtown area!
