Rich on vegan options - Edit

It’s hard to find in my area stores or restaurants with bigger vegan options but yesterday I discovered this gem in my city and it made my day!
Mother’s Market has the biggest selection of vegan and gluten free options. Cannot even compare to Wholefoods Market. Yes, really!
The best part, they have a vegan deli and pastries. Food to go! Their restaurant menu is rich on vegan options too.
The won me as a loyal every day customer.
Gosh, I lost so much time looking for this spot and it’s literally by my house.

Pros: regards ch on vegan options, love vegan deli and p

Cons: none

Slow service - Edit

Food is ok. Had the vegan sandwich. Comes with vegan cheese but they use shredded vs slices. All the cheese comes out when you pick up the sandwich. Service is beyond slow. Took over 30 min to receive.

Pros: nice seating area , nice patio seating

Cons: slow service

Bad Food & Service - Edit

I had high expectations for this place, as they had lots of vegan options and Mother's Market is a very good store. First of all, the store is good, except a lot of stuff is overpriced. They have a wide variety of specialty teams you wouldn't find anywhere else, including AGAR!

Second of all, the restaurant is not good. Service is extremely slow. I had the tempeh burger, which was okay, and the person I was with had the spaghetti and "meatballs." The sauce was flavorless and the vegan meatballs were mushy. The burger also came with a side, but choices were limited to quinoa, rice, or something else I don't remember. None of these things really go well with a burger, and the rice was dry and bland. I would not recommend this place.

Pros: tempeh burger is good

Cons: slow service, most food is bad

Mother's Market is Groovy...but Expensive - Edit

Mother's Market is a health food store that has all kinds of things. They have all kinds of food; vegan, vegetarian, and non-vegetarian. They also have cookbooks and make-up (which is all natural but it's freaking expensive, man.) Mother's Market has all kinds of vegan food including vegan desserts and weird stuff like vegan coconut shrimp and Thanksgiving "turkey". I love the hot food bar because they had a lot of vegan options and give you free samples!I love this place, however most of their stuff is too expensive.

Updated from previous review on 2012-02-17

Pros: great selection of vegan food, free samples at hot food bar

Cons: expensive

The Best Vegan Breakfasts! - Edit

Mother's has the best vegan breakfasts ever! Lots of options but we always get the tofu omelet (made with shredded tofu), mushrooms, avocado, and vegan cheese. Last time, I opted for a gf vegan pancake instead of any of the sides and it was delicious! My husband likes to get their potatoes and a biscuit and devours both. I've had their shakes and green juices before and enjoyed both. A definite must to take your meat-eater friends/family since they can also be accommodated. I'd give this 5 stars if I could!!!

Pros: Vegan GF breakfasts!!!, Vegan biscuits, Large selection on menu

Cons: No location in Las Vegas :(

Friendly Staff - Edit

Love this location, haven't found a meal I love at the restaurant, but their quick service juice bar is amazing and I love the vegan milkshakes. Also, these people are always so kind to my son. He actually looks forward to going there because the staff always make a point to say hi to him. There's tons of vegan food around and you can pretty much find anything you need here. I go here a lot before holidays to stock up on food items for my sons Easter basket, halloween candy, and Christmas stocking because you can find a lot of vegan specific things that were made for the holidays.

Pros: Huge Selection, Friendly Staff, Great Juice Bar

LOVE the selection - Edit

This is my go-to place for getting the freshest organic produce year round, or when I can't make it to a farmer's market. Great selection of vitamins and supplements also. Good place to shop for superfoods such as maca, goji berries, cacao, etc., if you need it - you'll find it here, along with a knowledgeable staff that will answer your questions or help you find some you need. Love it here !!!

Pros: Amazing selection, Weekly Sales, Has a Cafe

Cons: Can be pricey, Prepared deli foods are so-so (bland)

Nice store - Edit

Compared to the one in Santa Ana they're okay. I guess they are not as attentive to the costumer. I go there almost every week. When I asked one of the girls for some product, she said they don't have it on stock since they don't sell it much, and I know it sells well. This is just one incident of many, but they do have the vegan essentials I need to survive :) and the owner is really nice.

Pros: Vegan essentials, nice owner

Cons: Customer service needs work
