Many options for tasty dishes and veggies prepared, perhaps, in a way you have never had them. Quinoa, kale, br sprouts...a great list of options. I had a burger and loved the creation. The drink bar is a great mix of teas and juices -...More

Food here was awesome. It's fast food, but loved it. Big Ol burger was awesome, tasted like normal burger. Huge selection of options I could have eaten 5 dishes, wish we had this in Australia.

Native foods is always a safe vegan food bet, it's not the most amazing vegan food, but it's really good. Their sauces are on point too!

There are no prices on their website. Wondering what the price range of entrees is?

Response from LadyZady |
On their website when you look at the menu toward the top there is a link for their printable menu and it has the prices there. I'd say mid-range $10-$20
Do the restaurant serve wine?
