Review of Spa Cafe

We stopped in for a quick bite during our spa day. Ordered the green crunch salad with shrimp and seared scallops. Both dishes were super tasty and perfect size for a light lunch. Both the scallops and shrimp were perfectly cooked. We also were served complimentary champagne (b/c we were on our honeymoon) and honestly, I preferred their house champagne to the $120 bottle we bought upon arrival. Haha - personal preferences =) This place is good for a healthy, feel good, tasty lunch. Reasonably priced for a spa.

Anything in or around this wonderful spa would be perfect. We spent our day getting treatments, sitting on lounge chairs overlooking the Pacific and having lunch served outside. The food is simple, and healthy. You are at a spa, it should be.

The atmosphere of the Spa Café is quiet, spa-relaxing with indoor seating, including a small bar. The outdoor space is the real focus of the café, a mixed variety of comfy seating types surrounding a beautiful spa pool with great views of the Pacific. A sign indicates the spa pool is only for spa guests, but we understood that the café serves any walk-in visitor. We ate here three time including indoors table, outdoors table, and poolside, both as a spa guest poolside (fantastic spa facilities) and as a walk-in visitor. The service inside and outside is a small team of hospitality staff who seemed overly busy, usually attentive and efficient, sometimes forgetful, and at least once dismissive—service was really hit or miss. The bagel ‘n’ lox was a generous pile of salmon on a perfectly toasted bagel but lathered with way too much lox (that quantity of lox should have been served on the side). The guacamole and salsa with chips was very fresh and generous—best dish we ate there. The fruit and cheese plate was generous and very good with lots of tastes, but the cheese was served in way-too-large blocks (difficult for plastic utensils) and there were only two cheeses, not three as advertised. All the fruits were great quality. The spa cocktails were good but light on the pour, and the beer was not chilled well. The use of paper plates/bowls, plastic utensils, and plastic cups were not appropriate for the quality of the spa and for the food/drink expectations of a luxury resort. I’d rate the value as low; the prices are too high for the quality of the presentation and service. Overall, the quality of the service, food, and presentation do not match the quality of this exceptional spa and resort; I’d really love to see the Spa Café elevated and believe it could be with an eye on extending the normal Terranea excellence into this café offering.

Limited seating and the food choices were limited. Expensive for what we got and everything was served properly except we had to use plastic cutlery?!

Love this cafe as you enjoy the private pool area after visiting the spa. The menu is somewhat limited but the food is very fresh and good.
