One of the best vegan places that I've tried in a long time. They have everything from their appetizers, entrées, bowls, desserts, to their drinks. I wish I could try all of them in one sitting, but I could only eat so much. Definitely coming back again!

Delicious and nutritious

Fresh and yummy food. We had the veggie burger with veggies on it and it was great. The veggies were steamed and tender not hard (my tooth was hurting so I am sensitive). The sweet potatoes fries are yummy and served with vegan cream. I was a little confused as to if it’s all vegan or vegetarian but I didn’t ask so just keep that in mind. I only asked if my order was vegan.

Pros: Fresh, Vegan cream, Next to a health food store

Cons: Not sure if it’s 100% vegan

Cool little spot, neat menu

We enjoyed eating here after wanting to try it for a while. They're fully vegan now, which is great. It's also attached to a health food store with lots of vegan items. Worth a visit I think!
The food was solid but not mind-blowing or anything, so I'd probably give 4.5 stars if that were an option.

Pros: Unique menu, Friendly service

I tried the tacos with jackfruit, slaw and aioli, pupusas, green juice, tiramisu and horchata and it was all amazing. Such good flavours and textures, fresh, healthy and filling. I’ll definitely be back!

Yummy, healthy, homemade

I had a yummy bowl with rice, beans, tofu, roasted veggies and vegan cream. Their hot sauce on everything is amazing too. My hubby enjoyed his breakfast burrito. Everything tastes super homemade. No impossible or beyond meat junk here. The drinks were great too. I wish I could try more soon but I live so far away!

Pros: Tofu bowl, Breakfast burrito, Plantains

They have thIS option where you can create a bowl kind of like chipotle. I got the jackfruit meat and mushrooms and it came with rice, black beans, and pico. If you are just vegetarian they have real cheese and dairy options too. VERY GOOD. They’re potato wedges are amazing as well.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Very well seasoned

Cons: Expensive

Lots of soy free options!

The staff is very knowledgeable, or very will to find out, about ingredients in the food. The food is so tasty that my kids are willing to eat here without hesitation. The variety of options is great, there’s always something to hit the spot.

Pros: Lots of soy free vegan options, Good variety of foods on menu

Cons: Pricey, but not outrageous for high quality vegan

Taco Tuesday!

I got the jackfruit tacos with citrus slaw and avocado sauce. It was delicious! The tacos were stuffed and did not leave me hungry after, which I appreciated. A bit pricey but I got $2 off for taco Tuesday.

Taco Tuesday!

First time at Oasis after seeing it appear as the first choice in my search for several months. I got each of the 3 racks featured on Taco Tuesday: the Jacked, the Zucchini, and the Carnitas. Out of the 3, my favorite was by far the Zucchini. I am not sure what they marinated the zucchini with but it was to die for! I really liked the jackfruit with the savory-spicy seasoning but wish it came with sour cream and/or avocado like the other 2. My friend got the scrambled egg burrito with mushrooms, the jackfruit burrito with mushrooms, and the Jacked taco. He said his favorite out of the bunch was definitely jackfruit because he had only had raw jackfruit before so it was really interesting having it cooked. I highly recommend this place to anyone. P.S. go on Tuesday because the tacos are only $3.09/each.

Pros: Fast service, Reasonable prices, Easy to follow menu

Cons: Ice cream is expensive, Sour cream is extra, Vegan bun for burger is $1 extra😡

Tasty and Healthy!

I appreciate they have gluten free options because finding both vegan and gluten free is sometimes impossible. I had the GF burger bun with the Oasis Patty with mushrooms and turmeric aioli, organic spinach pupusa, organic spinach tamales, fried plantains, their "roma" coffee (chicory root I think). Also ordered a gluten free ice cream sandwich with rocky road ice cream.

Burger was very tasty. Pupusa wasn't overly oily and the tamales with the hot sauce were great. Vegan cheese tasted pretty healthy too and not heavy. Overall I like this place.

Comfy seating inside. The La Sierra food store has a nice vibe and energy to it. I was out here to see my parents so I had to search for Riverside places to eat and I'm glad I picked this one. I appreciate the organic options as well.

Pros: organic ingredients, vegan gluten free options

Cons: parking was tricky during the Sunday farmers marke, one bathroom had a line

Great Food

This cafe has some great food! I happened upon this place trying to find a close by place that serves vegan food while I was traveling. Although they are a vegetarian cafe, they can make almost all of their food vegan. Great food!

Worth going out of your way to get to.

All the staff that I have met have been amazing, polite and patient with all types of customers. And the food is really top notch too. I'd never had pupusas before (so I'm not sure how they're supposed to taste) but these were fantastic. They came with a side of slaw/kraut that was the best I've ever had and I wish there'd been more. The best of the best, though, is their vegan carnitas. They are fantastic, and while they get a little lost in all the other stuff in the burrito, as a taco or burger they really shine. While you wait for your food, take a walk through their grocery store, it's a vegans dream store.

Pros: Delicious, Affordable, Large and filling quantity

Cons: A bit out of the way
