Desert jewel - Edit

First time visiting this resturant, food was delicious and very filling. The shop is cute and the staff is friendly. They have lots of samples, so you can taste stuff before you decide what you want. I will definitely be back!

Pros: great food, parking, personable staff

great for pick up - Edit

Surprisingly delicious food. Very accommodating, even for gluten free diners (in a place that's basically a gluten-filled seitan factory!). Especially memorable is the caesar salad.

Excellent Amazing Delicious- Seriously! - Edit

I got the chance to eat at Chef Tanya’s and it was amazing! I was very impressed from start to finish. The restaurant is very small, but decorated in a fun and tasteful decor. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Now let’s get down to the food! I got the Chupacabra Chicken, it was outstanding! The flavors were just the right spicy to rich and flavorful. The bread was really good and the veggies very fresh. I also had a side of the Fleetwood Mac salad and it was really good also. Not what I expected macaroni salad to be like, there were pieces of sietan and veggies in it and made it extra unique. I finished with the lemon cake (and took chocolate to go) and it was very fresh and had just the right amount of sweet. I will absolutely go back! Native Foods watch out, Chef Tanya’s done it again and it’s a masterpiece!

Pros: Very flavorful food, Unique menu options, Very friendly staff

Had the grinder, it was good, very filling too. It was a little expensive being almost $10 also got a lemon cake, it was pretty good, kinda heavy. Also had the smokey pasta the macorony salad, both really good. And they were about $5 each which seems reasonable. I will definitely be back to try more things! Many options on menu

Happy discovery - Edit

This is food created by the one and only Tanya Petrovna, the founder of Native Foods. Her new Chef Tanya's restaurant makes us wish we could move to Palm Springs. We had lunch there 2 days ago, and are still fondly remembering the large, overstuffed scrumptious sandwiches and warm, friendly atmosphere. Order prep takes a while, but it's well worth the wait. I don't know how she manages to take ordinary ingredients and magic them into such memorable bites.

Pros: 100% vegan, Very delicious food, Happy, friendly place

Best Vegan in Palm Springs - Edit

My Killer Caprese was so good as was the BLT and potato salad. I'm so jealous of the regulars who kept coming in and out as we are just passing through town. It is truly your anytown deli but vegan. The staff was so friendly and the assortment of goods in the store was impressive. I heard someone say they will be doing mail delivery soon. When I come to Palm Springs again, this is where you'll find me.

Pros: selection of deli options and desserts

Delicious - Edit

On a weekend trip to Palm Springs, our first stop was to Chef Tanya's for lunch. I've been patiently waiting for Tanya to open her own place again and none of us were disappointed. We shared the Cubano, pastrami and chicken sandwiches. So yummy. We also shared the chocolate cake for dessert. So moist. The hibiscus drink was refreshing too. I got a bunch of the VioLife cheeses to go as I've only had them in Europe before. There's lots of other to-go items as well from salads to homemade vegan meats and desserts. I hope she'll open in LA someday as it's all so delicious. She and her staff are all so welcoming and friendly too. Go now!

Pros: Chef Tanya, all vegan, delicious deli items

Wow, just wow! - Edit

Thanks to a new listing on Happy Cow, we were thrilled to discover Chef Tanya's new vegan eatery yesterday, tucked away in a cool industrial area at the end of East Sunny Dunes Road. What a sweet spot! I am a sucker for vegan BLTs and Chef Tanya's version (with to-die-for tofu "bacon" and avocado) was first-rate. It was a daily special and I highly recommend putting it on the regular menu! Don't miss Tanya's Mediterranean chop salad with scrumptious pops of flavor from currants, green olives and slivers of date. My partner raved about his Cubano sandwich and we both enjoyed the refreshing watermelon-lemonade-mint agua fresca and succulent apple-blueberry crumble. It was such a pleasure to meet Chef Tanya in person after years of admiring her from afar. She and her staff are friendly and welcoming. We just moved to Palm Springs and will definitely be regulars at Chef Tanya's Kitchen! P.S. The cafe is open until 8 pm on Wednesdays and will feature a special dinner entree.
UPDATE: as of August 3, 2017, Chef Tanya's is open until 6 pm Tues-Thurs-Fri-Sat and 8 pm Wed!!!

Best food in Palm Springs - Edit

We visited here for a late lunch or early dinner, taking advantage of the new later opening times (now open until 6).

We expected great things but were not prepared for just how good the food was. Absolutely incredible and without a doubt the best we've had all vacation. We will definitely be back!

Pros: Amazing food , Great service , All vegan

Cons: None

Yesh! - Edit

As Mooch the cat would sya, Yesh! Chef Tanya is amazing. She was the brains behind Native Foods, and this is even better. But note that this is TAKE-OUT only. The perfect place to go when your Palm Springs hotel has no decent food ooptions. Grab the food and take it back to your hotel. Chef Tanya is also FANTASTIC at catering.

Pros: Excellent food, Value, Staff

Cons: 125 miles from where I live. :(, No seating

Best Vegan spot in Cochella Valley - and - best place to bring non vegan friends! - Edit

This place is one of the amazing off the beaten path type hot spots you will find in Palm Springs. The offerings are all amazing. I try something new everytime. There is always a special of the day. Refreshing drinks and desserts in addition to the deli style favorites. See the photo of the menu. Yum! Chef Tanya is an accomplished chef and animal advocate. Love, love, love that there is information on adoption from Palm Springs Animal shelter. This place has heart and the staff rock. A must visit when in palm springs, CA.

Pros: tasty deli fare and she caters! , unique - nothing like it around , best way to introduce non vegans to good vegan foo

Cons: off the beaten path (both pro an con), only open 11-3 Tues - Sat, only one location

Vegan Done Right in Palm Springs - Edit

Tanya Petrovna is back and better than ever with her incredible plant-based creations. I've been 3 times since she opened and I've tried the Eggy Sandwich, El Cubano, the Pastrami Mami, the macaroni salad and her decadent cobbler desserts. She also features a special of the day and her Agua Frescas are refreshing. She's open late on Wednesdays so you can pick up dinner on your way home. I like the deli aspect so you can pick up additional items and salads to use at home as well. Be sure and pick up some crack cheese too. Vegan food done right and the portions are generous. Thanks Tanya for feeding the masses with delicious and cruelty-free offerings.

AMAZING!!! - Edit

Chef Tanya is back, and the food is better than ever. This is emotionally delicious vegan grub. Not to be melodramatic, but I live for this food... I've been a fan of her culinary sorcery since first discovering Native Foods almost 20 years ago. Had the Cubano sandwich, probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. The Moroccan Chop salad was also fantastic. A cute little lunch shop tucked away a bit off the beaten path, standing counters only.

BEST Vegan food in Palm springs! - Edit

Yum! I had the Cuban sandwich and my husband had the tuno melt. We also had the pesole soup. EVERYTHING was fabulous! It's a take out restaurant but our sandwiches did not make it out the door...we ate them at the counter. I HIGHLY recommend eating there...healthy and delicious!
