Very Expensive but good for you food. - Edit

The Vegan bowl I bought was 13.00 plus tax and a tip. So 17.00 for a bowl of pinto beans, quinoa, Cucumbers and almonds. I went to pour the pepper and the whole thing of pepper fell in my food. The kitchen just took out the food that had pepper. They took all the almonds and the avocado and did not replace it. That is way too much money for me.

Pros: The place is very pretty and the food makes you fe

Cons: so expensive

Excellent Vegetarian Cafe - Edit

We enjoyed this cafe a lot - I ate there a total of 3 times in a four-day visit to Santa Fe. There are vegan options, they are accommodating, and the staff is very pleasant and helpful in explaining what is in the food. The food is made with a health-conscious attitude, and has pure and healthy ingredients. Some of their options reflect a particular view of what "healthy food" means, but whether you are gluten-free or paleo or whatever the latest trend is, I think you'll find something to satisfy you. I enjoyed the poached eggs one time, the asparagus omelette is super (a different time), and I had a spinach salad a third time. My spouse had the waffle on our last visit, and I just tasted it (as yummy as the whipped cream and maple syrup are, they are not what I should be eating) and it was crisp and delicious. And in addition to eating there three times, I took out the spaghetti squash with mushroom-quinoa meatballs, and this was a very filling and tasty dish. My spouse also thought the coffee was excellent.

Pros: Good food, Vegan Options, Pleasant and helpful staff

Cons: A bit pricey for a casual place

I guess it's good for non-vegans? - Edit

I've been here 3 times and none have been satisfying and today's visit was the worst. I live in town and feel terrible not being a fan but after today I cannot hold back anymore. While technically a vegetarian restaurant (some of their exilers are not - Shangbai Mountain ant & Red Deer Antler), they are not vegan friendly either in service or menu. The menu does not contain the word vegan at all which then forces you to inquire with the wait staff who instantly get weird and uncomfortable. With eggs, cheese and ghee in nearly every item it's really hard to figure out what's what. Today I went with a friend to try a dessert - walked up to the counter and asked what's vegan and was told "nothing", then was told "oh, this $8 chocolate avocado tort is but nothing else". So against my better judgement I ordered the tort for my friend and I and it was inedible - slightly sour and rancid. We both agreed. I didn't want to make a scene and in fact tried to pay for it but they refused and apologized. Call me wacky, but I expect vegetarian restaurants to be at least as vegan friendly as regular restaurants. Love Yourself Cafe loves their eggs, cheese and ghee better than they love their vegan customers. I hope they can figure things out so I can update this review to a positive recommendation.

hidden veggie gem! - Edit

On the vacation Santa Fe trying to find a great vegan restaurant for breakfast. This place had no ratings but we took a chance. One of a kind food experience in terms of variety of concoctions, coffee making methods, and wall of apothecary! associated with spa and therefore very health and wellness focused.

We were greeted by a tiny jar of elixir...delicious and refreshing. Menu had ovo-lacto options but really good variety of vegan choices too. No vegan gluten free bread to go with our coco chia pudding though. They substituted a cashew annually for the cheese on the potato hash and it was perfect. Chemex pour over coffee removed all the bitterness.

Service a little slow but very thoughtful. Funny location in a strip mall but great find for vegan and vegetarian diners. Not very crowded...hope ppl discover so we can come back next time we're in Santa Fe.

Pros: thoughtful service, wellness focus, good vegan options

Cons: no windows, no vegan bread
