good food, not a lot of options for lunch - Edit

Fantastic vegan eggplant sandwich for lunch with the chocolate cake for dessert (more like pudding though being raw). They also had a vegan key lime pie as well as the carrot cake.

Pros: good food, vegan desserts

Cons: not many other lunch options

Raw. Vegan. Chocolate. - Edit

I went into the jungle with the serious chocolate fit. They had not one but two vegan desserts! One was a carrot cake (snoooooze) but the other was a chocolate cheez cake...WIN! This place is a bit pricey with limited options for vegans...but....CHOCOLATE!!!

Cons: price

Great service - Edit

We had a fantastic time despite my many food intolerances. The very kind waitress took my list of foods, asked questions, went to the kitchen and came back with a couple entre choices. I really appreciated that as often people get frustrated with my SIBO list since I am also a vegetarian (former vegan).

We enjoyed our food and our refills. Wish we lied nearby but we were on vacation. The food was appropriately priced for organic and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

Cons: Serve carnivores, Played some country music

Good Food but Over Priced - Edit

We were looking for an organic cafe and happened into The Jungle. The small cafe looked inviting. We went for lunch and were seated quickly. They brought out samples of soup and we chose one. It was a little salty but still tasty. We ordered sandwiches. The pictures on the menu and descriptions mislead because they are written in such a way that the sandwich will be large and filling. These were small and like a regular home made on very small bread. The price did not reflect the size. Way over priced for what we got. The taste was okay. I will not be back to The Jungle for lunch or dinner. I will however shop in their store for organic goods.

Cons: Price, Portion size

This not LA or Miami... - Edit

Wow! I had Wonderful Food yesterday AND Service. Very accommodating due to my Celiac and the soups are wonderful.
Now the down side: Where I sat was filthy, the one corner of the room without a waterfall theme-eww I pointed this out to my server who also was so so nice!! I am sure this area will be improved on but maybe the owners should sit and be a customer and look around a bit just to kinda tweak things like the floor looked very whitish dirty on top of the wood by the entrance to the dining area. But where I sat was a tank or something and was really filthy.Which leads me to my second point: With the prices charged and the amount of food not sure I will be back. Great food YES! BUT not enough at All for the prices.... sorry!

Pros: Excellent staff, Good food, accommodating to diets

Cons: Too Pricey, Dirty, small portions

Everything is Excellent! - Edit

The only thing this place needs is its own chunk of real estate, I would be willing to bet many people have driven by this place without seeing the sign let alone what lies behind it's drab facade. They did a marvelous job decorating the inside. After entering, the name Jungle begins to make sense, not overbearing though. No loud animal noises either, only the sounds of the waterfall and the playing of nice music. The Staff was great, our server was great, and the place has a small grocery store adjacent to it where they sell micro beer and quite a selection of wine. This place had a lot of time and effort put into it and I wish them the best.

Pros: Everything

Cons: easy to miss.

Cute Little Resturant! - Edit

What a nice resturant in a small seaside town! Although they didn't have vegan options on the menu, as soon as I said I was vegan the waiter quickly pointed out how a few of the dishes could be modified.

I had the bean burrito without the cheese. The ingredients tasted really fresh and the menu said that everything was organic, which is always a plus.

The resturant is part of a nice little health food store where you can find many things to take home. I enjoyed a soy "ice cream" after my meal.

The atmosphere was very cool and relaxing. We sat next to a water fall. I would certainly reccomend a visit if you are in the area.

Pros: Fresh organic food., Very accomadating., Friendly staff.

Cons: No vegan options on menu., Small selection.

Scrumptious Food/Outrageous Prices - Edit

First time trying The Jungle, we paid $60 for breakfast (two adults and two young children who had kids meals). Normally, at nearby conventional restaurants, we pay $30-35 for a comparable breakfast. Granted, organic is pricey. And, I would not have minded paying $40-45 for our meal. But, $60 (before tip) was outrageous.

That said, the food was nothing short of amazing! They do need more vegan options.

Pros: Amazing food, Very themed decor

Cons: Price! Price! Price!, Not many vegan choices

Soups, Salads, and service - Edit

since the recent menu changed, that is about all this vegan goes to the jungle to get. You can almost daily count on a vegan soup, and if its not everyday its at least 4 days a week. Salads are always great choices too for the vegan customer...Its a great place, local, easy to get to! Keep up the good work! If you havent seen it, check the place out!

Pros: great staff, tasty food

Cons: pricey, not many vegan choices

positive change - Edit

We have followed this restaurant for the last couple of years. We only eat organic and truly believe this place has staying power. The dining room is really like a Jungle. They seem to really have put a lot more work into the place recently. The food is what really brings us back. It's a little pricy but well worth it!! Keep up the good work and we'll keep supporting.

Pros: unique atmosphere, excellent food, great service

Very good but now $$$ - Edit

Food is excellent but I went there for lunch last and noticed the change to menu and prices. I understand it is expensive to provide organic but the menu needs a bit more range in prices. $16 for lunch per a person is a bit much for this area.

Pros: Excellent Food, Location and Style

Cons: High Price
