most excellent!

Went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Had a veganrizo burrrito and loved it. Its rare that I find a place where I don't feel as though I could make the meal better myself. The staff and service were also great. I highly recommend this place!

Pros: good value, good size portions, excellent selection
Cons: none

If you are ever in HB, you gotta check this place out. Super yummy food for both herbivores and omnivores. Wonderful juice bar with vegan baked goods as well! Cozy location right by the beach. The place is small and often busy, but so worth the wait!!!!

Pros: great food, cozy atmosphere , wonderful staff
Cons: small place, often busy

Lots of Vegan Options

4 Posted on 10 / 08 / 2011

The Secret Spot has lots of vegan options for a non-veg location. In fact I would say most items are vegetarian or vegan (It would have been nice if the items were more clearly marked rather than having to read through all the descriptions of their extensive menu. But it seems that most items can be veganized with a simple request to their friendly staff). I got the Veganrizo Breakfast Burrito and it was good. My bf got teriyaki tacos which were also good. The food tasted fresh, and it had a homecooked feel to it. They have a large juice and smoothie menu with soy milk options. They have vegenaise but no vegan cheese. They have hummus, salads, bowls, sandwiches, breakfast burritos, tacos. I only mention all of this because they have no website. They also had cramped seating arrangements (I went on a Saturday, perhaps during the week it's easier to get a table). You can expect it to take up to 20 minutes for your food as it did ours, however they are making the food fresh so it is understandable and kind of fits the laid back beach atmosphere of the place. The workers are friendly, and the prices are fairly inexpensive(7.50 for breakfast burrito w/chips and salsa). Though I would not drive out of my way to go here again, they have great vegan options for people who are local to the area, or tourists. It is an easy walking distance to the beach from here as well. Secret Spot is not easy to see from the street, but once you turn into the gas station lot you will see it along the side of the shopping center. Check it out next time you're in Huntington.

Pros: fresh and fairly inexpensive food, lots of variety for non-veg restaurant, friendly service
Cons: cramped interior

The Best

4 Posted on 12 / 02 / 2009

Though not completely vegetarian, you would be hard pressed to find better healthy food anywhere in the area. And if you want vegetarian or vegan, they have it. Excellent staff, and most importantly food. Really nothing better...

Good food, knowledgable staff!

Headed out to HB for a veg meetup and this place didn't disappoint. The staff was really helpful about telling us what's popular & what's veg. I had a breakfast burrito (yay! another place that serves vegan breakfast all day!!) with tofu & potatos & salsa & all kinds of yummy goodness. My husband tried a lemon-flavored unturkey burrito, he really enjoyed the flavors. Each dish comes w/a small side of chips & really good salsa- lots of flavor and just enough heat.

They also have vegan cookies for $1 each, everyone in our party just had to have one and we almost had a race to snag the very last one in the basket. ;) They have vegan-friendly smoothies that are yummy. The cheese is not vegan, but they reccomend subbing hummus instead.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, Breakfast all day!, Lots of healthy smoothies
Cons: Small space, Not much parking

Pros: Good food
Cons: Staf a bit distracted

freaking great!

the secret spot rocks, yeah its not 100% vegetarian/vegan but it kicks ass. They make almost every dish vegetarian. The review before was right, their smoothies are great. They use all fresh ingredients and make things on the spot. After eating here you will be full for a long time. They also have specials throughout the week. Its a place you definitely should try at least once.....and my guess is, once you do you'll go back many many times.

Pros: great food, great people, great atmosphere
Cons: small dining area inside
