First Review by Mike Weinberg

Stellar - Edit

This place is just perfect. We tried the cheeseburger and the "perfect tacos"...I never ever seen something that healthy being so delicious.
Everything is 100% vegan and organic.

I don't even know how to describe the desserts. Tried the Decadence (a sort of chocolate mousse) and it is amazing. This alone would be a good reason to come back.

The place has a really peaceful atmosphere and the staff is also very friendly.

Loved every bite and every moment there.

Pros: Healthy, Tasty, Original

Decent, Nothing to Write Home About - Edit

My roommate and I are from Orange County, but we decided to do a vegan foodie day in San Diego and chose Trilogy for brunch. Atmosphere is wonderful; I love the rooftop cafe - granted, it was a gorgeous day.

We ordered and split the breakfast burrito and pancakes. Texture wise, the pancakes did taste gluten-free (a bit gritty). They were okay, but not as fluffy as I like them; there are definitely better options elsewhere. The burrito was also decent, but, again, I've had better. It was also a bit oily from the quinoa mixture.

If I was in the area again, I would be willing to try this place again for lunch or dinner; their bowls looked amazing. If possible, I would give this 3.5 stars. The food wasn't bad at all, just not amazing or really worth the drive from OC.

Pros: Atmosphere, Gluten Free/Allergy Options, Variety

Cons: Food was ok, not stellar

soooo good!! - Edit

Delicious. Inventive. Genius. Must try!!

Only thing it's slightly on expensive side, but large portions. Perhaps if they made portions smaller they'd be able to charge slightly less.

SOOOOO California! - Edit

I loved everything about this cafe....from the open-air rooftop patio, to the super healthy and amazingly fresh food options (the acai bowls are incredible!), to the really friendly staff & the really fit clientele.....this place was exactly the California experience I was looking for while visiting San Diego! Wish I could take it back to PA with me!!!!!

Pros: Healthy fresh vegan food, Rooftop patio, Good vibes

awesome atmosphere and fresh, healthy food - Edit

I'm not sure if other people who gave low ratings may have had a different experience, but I thought the food was great! Very fresh, came out quickly, and seemed very natural. Very cool setting, also. Located on a rooftop in a yoga studio. Check it out!

Pros: fresh, healthy, quick service

Cons: none

unhealthy too much sauce and processing - Edit

My boyfriend and I came here. He thought his food was ok, I didn't like mine at all. Both had a ton of sauce and marinated veggies. For a $15/person meal I expect a lot more. I'm sad to say this, but if the place serves healthy alternatives I think it would have a lot of success.

So happy we found this place - Edit

Enchiladas made with red house made tortillas, portobello mushrooms, mole on fiesta rice. So much variety, I had trouble deciding what to order. They happily split this entree so that we could share.

Pros: Large portions, 100% organic, Roof top view.

Very Good Food!!! - Edit

I am a bit shocked to read some of the other reviews on here about the food and service.... we had dinner at Trinity today and the entire staff was extremely friendly and the food was super tasty! We are from out of town and everyone made us feel extremely welcome. Need more places like this! :)

Pros: Food, Service, Vibe, Views

Cons: Wish we could take this place back home with us!

Unique and really cool - Edit

Don't let the yoga studio facade distract you. This is a fully set up restaurant, with great meals (try the tacos!) and great desserts (try the vegan ice cream sandwich).
The restaurant has a big open air section On The top floor. Great for cool nights or chilling.
Enjoy!

yum - Edit

We had a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon and wow! The eggplant dish with sweet potatoes and broccolini was off the charts- and the spaghetti squash entree was delicious too! We loved the variety of teas and service was friendly and helpful too. Will definitely be back.

Awesome overall! - Edit

Trilogy has a great location on a rooftop near downtown SD. It's half vegan cafe, half yoga studio, so the vibes there are always cool. The food is delicious. I've had the perfect tacos and the burger which were both delicious!

Amazing atmosphere! - Edit

This place is extremely unique! It's located at the top of a La Jolla building, as soon as you walk in you'll see an areal yoga class which is so cool the you'll walk past the outside eating area to get inside the restaurant to order. The tacos were pretty great but unfortunately the nachos leave a lot to be desired. I get the raw thing but textures really need to be mastered if you're going to charge this much. I hope to revisit soon and try something different soon.

Pros: atmosphere, lots of options

Cons: expensive for what you're getting

Great, Healthy Vegan food - Edit

I've been here twice and absolutely love it! It is a cute rooftop cafe and yoga studio. It is a very nice environment and the food is delicious. All their food is vegan but they have gluten free and Raw options as well. I've had their decadence raw chocolate whip, buckwheat crepes, raw carrot cake, and pesto squash pasta. All dishes were amazing (my non-vegan friends loved it too). I would highly recommend checking this place out! (It's kind of hard to find, you have to look for the pharmaca store front and go down a hallway to an elevator to the top floor.) It is slightly pricey, my friend and I ate dinner and shared desert and it was $45 total

Pros: Great food, Relaxing atmosphere, Healthy dining

Cons: hard to find, Slightly pricey

A small vegan jewel - Edit

This place is fantastic. The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious, served quickly and you get to watch the yoga lesson from one of the tables outside-you can bring your dog there to eat with you, like we did!

Pros: Delicious vegan plant-based food, Fast service, You can bring your dog

Great food in a scenic rooftop location - Edit

Fabulous food at a reasonable price and with a great view from the rooftop restaurant. What more could you ask. We came hungry and left happy, satiated vegans :-D. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. Definitely a place to visit if in the La Jolla area.

Little gem - Edit

Amazing place at a 30 minute drive from San Diego. Definitely worth the visit. The rooftop terrace is simply beautiful -- when we arrived there was an aerial yoga class going on. We went inside first and ordered our food (nachos, coconut wrap and two kombuchas) but then decided to sit outside because it was just too lovely. The food was divine and very filling: the idea was to split the appetizer and then split an entree, but we were already too full! Must have been the kombucha too, which is the tastiest I've had so far. We finished with an acai bowl, which was a bit too much unfortunately, but delicious nonetheless. Oh, and there also was live music at 7. Me and my boyfriend were absolutely in love with this place. Too bad my visit to San Diego is over, otherwise I would want to come back straight away. Hopefully next time!

Pros: rooftop terrace is beautiful, food is divine and nutritious , really friendly staff: you can feel the good vibes

Amazing food - Edit

Trilogy is a bit off the beaten track, being on the roof top but has great food and a wonderful menu. Everything is fresh to order and made with care. Non vegan friends love it, too.

great! - Edit

I ate here with my family today, all of which are not vegan. Regardless, upon entering, it is pretty clearly labeled, being on the top floor with a beautiful view. Such a feeling of serenity is displayed with the aerial yoga featured on the open air of the building. There appears to be tons of juices, smoothies, and entrees, as well as desserts if you have a sweet tooth. I had the "2 amazing tacos" and was suprisingly full regardless of the miniature size of the dish. The protein is very condensed i think- so it caused me to feel pretty fulfilled. Great place and my carnivorous parents loved it, despite initial thoughts.

Intriguing dining - Edit

Trilogy Sanctuary is a very interesting place, with good vegan food, and a unique setting. We enjoyed our meal here very much - a variety of tacos and a crepe. The ambience was relaxed and welcoming. During our meal, there were preparations for a circus performance in the outdoor space. It was interesting to watch the practices.

Great! - Edit

A happy hip homespun place. I've been there several times and have enjoyed every dish. All organic, gluten free. Creative salads, dips, deserts, power smoothies, acai bowls, fresh juice, cooked and raw dishes. Love the spaghetti squash dish, wrap, chili stuffed sweet potato, raw carrot cake, etc. Really, what is not to like about this place? I even bought some meat eating family there and they were open to going again.

Amazing! - Edit

I ordered the Vega nachos, beet salad and carrot cake. So scrumptious! All vegan and organic it was exactly what I've been searching for in San Diego. I highly recommend this place. The food was delicious and I plan on trying every single item on the menu. The ambiance felt tranquil and romantic, great place to relax and nourish your body. There's also yoga if your'e into that. Love it!
