This was my first vacation after starting a gluten free/dairy free diet. Olam Pure food was wonderful! Lots of vegetarian and vegan options and the food was delicious!!!

It's been a few years since I was in Santa Teresa. I went there for Thanksgiving 2013, after a friend left her hectic NYC life and moved to this idyllic surf town. While I didn't stay at Nautilus (the hotel Olam is a part of), I came here every single day for several sun bowls, smoothies, and cacao balls. As a vegan, this place was heaven. The food was so fresh, delicious, and guilt-free. I'm writing this review all these years later because I, no joke, dreamt about Olam last night. I need to go back PRONTO.

We are no vegan/vegetarians but really liked this place. The menu offers a lot of variety and the food was very tasty! Smoothies and juices were also very good.

Super disappointed. Read the reviews and was excited to try Olam. Completely over hyped though. Service was a disaster. Not only was the wrong order taken and served, everything on the final bill was up charged, despite the fact that we were the only customers (or maybe because we were). For example, we never ordered additional extras but these were all included in the final bill. sloppy, disappointing food, ambience and service overall. Shakshuka and veggie burger is over rated, received the wrong salad and was upcharged for everything. Will not be returning or recommending.

The Olam menu is great for those with dietary restrictions (gluten-free, vegan, etc.) The breakfast options and salads are great, especially the smoothies. Order the yogi smoothie with mango and papaya! However, a lot of the lunch dishes (especially those with rice or the patties) are really greasy.
