Everything is vegan; I'm not but really enjoyed it. The food is fresh, creative, and well prepared. I had an amazing salad and sweet potato fries. Desserts tasty and inventive. Get in line to order, they bring your food and bus your table. Alcohol is served.

Every time my vegan daughter comes to visit we try different places to eat. This place works if we are near and she needs some food, I was so impressed with the menu at this semi non fast food, I know there are different levels of Vegan restaurants, but for a lunch and dinner on medium budget and no tips,...

I loved Native Foods when it was in DC, but sadly all of the restaurants closed there. This was my first visit to the Boulder location and I enjoyed it very much. The staff was very kind and the food was delicious. Everything was perfect and I just wish they were in more locations across the US! Highly recommend.

Here is hardly any vegetarian and no vegan, greasy and dirty. Even the menus were greasy. The service was slow and the food very mediocre.

I love eating at this chain- I'm patiently waiting for one to open in Houston, TX! Extensive menu, flavorful dishes, wide variety of options. Great teas and yummy desserts and did I say it is all vegan, because it is!

Find this spot in the small strip mall of 29th st shopping complex, near to the Nordstom Rack end. Casual and bigger than it looks with an outside patio that's on the side and not right next to the parking lot. Plenty of choices, go totally green or add some really good tasting protein subsitutes for the meat you think... More

I'm not vegan, but my kids are - so I spend a lot of time eating at places where I really don't care for anything on the menu. This place is different. Everything on the menu is vegan - so if you're a vegan you'll love it. More importantly, if you are not a vegan you will love it. We... More

We were in Boulder for something and decided to have lunch at Native Foods Cafe. We love this place! So many delicious choices and knowing they are all vegan is the icing on the cake! I so wish we had one in northern Colorado!

This is one of my wife's absolute favorite spot in Boulder and for good reason. We've never been to a quick service place quite like this and the food is incredible. I'm a big fan of the native chicken and my wife got the seitan sausage patty. We also got nachos with cashew cheese which I had never conceived of... More
