worth revisiting - Edit

I took off six months because this place was going downhill. Staff Koral seemed poor and it was dirty every time I came in. I’m happy to say new management has really turned it around. Clean attentive happy. And a new creative menu. I had the chicken & waffles. Delicious and filling!

First time here - Edit

I got the Ruben and it was pretty good. Can’t wait to try another menu item next time I go. Liked that it was nearby work and I had my sandwich within five mins. I got there after the lunch rush so it wasn’t too busy

Pros: fast service

Cons: none

Pretty good - Edit

First time here. Confusing not to have he menu on the wall above the register. The cashier seemed a little impatient when trying to order. I got a chicken sandwich on ciabatta bread. The kids loved it. We also got the nachos, but they wouldn't eat it. It was a little weird. Drowned in a taco sauce, and had two scoops of some gritty substance. The seasoned fries we ordered were also soggy. The drinks were handmade teas, but flavorless. Seriously tasted like water. Maybe I needed to try different things on the menu, but messing up fries and juice is pretty lame.

Pros: Decent prices, Wide menu

Cons: No normal drinks, Soggy fries , Weird flavor combos

Pseudo healthy but so good - Edit

Their potato salad and coleslaw is amazing (if a good prep cook is working). I also really enjoy their bean burger as it tastes unlike any other vegan burger in the area, its delicious.

Have been here several times and the food is good but had issues too randomly.. I NEVER return food but did at this establishment as the food was disgusting one night.. Got a full refund and was offered a free desert which i declined, but was nice of them to offer.

Saved My Thanksgiving - Edit

This place saved my Thanksgiving! I spent the holiday with family in San Diego and bought Native Foods' vegan wellington as my entree. It was amazing! It's a seasonal thing so don't look for it on the menu, but I ended up eating there for the rest of my stay. Their sandwiches are delicious. Even my omni family members agreed. Not the healthiest place in the world, but definitely tasty.

I love Native Foods - Edit

Native Foods has tons of yummy dishes both sandwiches and bowls. The options represent a wide variety of flavors and ethnic origins. I have enjoyed every dish I've tried, some are kinda spicy though so I don't go for those usually cause I'm a wimp. Their sweet potato fries are fantastic. Their drinks are delicious and their desserts don't make me miss dairy at all they are so good. I would eat here every day if I could and I'd be happy.

Pros: Amazing vegan food, Amazing vegan desserts, Big variety of options

Refreshing - Edit

The food here is unique and refreshing, with everything vegan. I bought a pesto pasta salad special and my friend, the Twister Wrap and I have to say--both were great. I am a fan of their "Native Chicken" which was flavorful but nto overwhelming. Their drinks are unlimited refills (hot drinks also!) and there was this nice, casual, and open vibe. I definitely recommend Native Foods and will visit again!

Pros: Good Value, Friendly Staff, Delicious Food
