Fantastic Experience! - Edit

This venue is very pleasant and conveniently located in a mall -- you can sit indoors or out -- Our server was very attentive without being overbearing and made sure we were happy with our choices. My friend had the Ancient Grains salad and since she's not vegan, had some shrimp added - she was very pleased with her choice. I had the TLT sandwich which was delicious in every way! I also had a Chia Lemonade that was just perfect and we each had dessert - mine was the vanilla bean vegan ice cream topped with blueberries -- delicious -- and she had the flour-less chocolate cake topped with vegan vanilla bean ice cream which she said was absolutely heavenly. We will surely be back for more as the menu is very varied and there's something for everyone - vegan, vegetarian or omnivore!

Pros: Well located, Very pleasant environment - indoor and outdoor., Food and service are excellent, savvy staff.

Cons: None that I can think of

Delicious, fresh, and friendly. - Edit

I took my dad and stepmom here, and was the only vegan of the group, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. My dad is not vegan and doesn't typically like "foo foo" food. He and my step mom ordered pizzas a margherita and a chicken which they enjoyed. I ordered a charred cauliflower dish for the appetizer and the ancient grains bowl. The charred cauliflower was so delicious and had a tangy creamy sauce. The grains bowl had a medley of flavors but they all worked surprisingly well together. The vegan key lime dessert was just the icing on the cake we were looking for. Everyone at the table loved the dessert and it changed their perception of a "vegan" dessert. The ambiance and customer service was on point on top of everything else. This place is a must try!

Pros: More vegan options than meat and dairy options. Ve, Fresh food and drinks. Truly fresh and made in hou

Cons: slightly expensive. definitely worth it.

Amazing - Edit

We had a lovely waitress who made our experience so pleasantly beautiful***

The food, felt home cooked, picked from a garden in someones backyard, it tasted and felt incredible. The dishes were inventive, different and so delicious.

If they weren't so so expensive I would eat here every week.

Pros: delicious recipes, rad options, atmosphere

Cons: seating isnt comfortable, sitting very close to others

True Food Alternative to the Mall Food Court - Edit

True Food is a great place to hang out and "people watch" from the Fresh Juice "bar" because it is located at a key entrance to the Fashion Valley mall - a high end shopping destination. It doesn't hurt that they have great, healthy food options and fresh juice drinks too. We love to order the veggie crudite appetizer (huge!) with the olive and hummus tapenades and dip options. A nice alternative to the very corporate and crazy "Cheesecake Factory" right across the street!

More Vegan options than listed - Edit

Before converting to a 100% plant based diet we came here a lot. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out there are far more things that can be made vegan than are listed on the menu...ask your server. For example: the Red Chili Shrimp can be made Vegan by subbing tofu and Gluten Free by subbing shirataki noodles. Other items that can be both Vegan and GF INCLUDE Street tacos, Spaghetti Squash Casserole, all Salads, and various Starters. Smoothies that have honey can be made with agave.

Pros: Knowledgeable servers, Friendly staff, Earth friendly practices

Cons: Can be a bit loud due to the architecture of the b, Always a wait when we come
