I was so pleased with our dining experience here. We were greeted by the friendly staff and led to a table by the window, where we watched the goings on at the flea market just outside. Being mostly plant based, I am always happy to...More

"Bonita" breakfast very good because black beans done so well. Too full for dessert, but they looked great. A party of 4 might consider...More

Very cute little cafe. All healthy choices. Lots of vegan choices. I love meat and I love gluten, but I hate a great meal without either of them. If you have a vegetarian in your party, this cafe is a must.

Had an excellent lunch here after a long morning. The lady who served us was very friendly, patient and helpful with the menu. So nice to find a vegan place that serves tasty food, decent serving sizes and at a good price.

Quiet little cafe in the heart of the Santa Cruz downtown shopping district. Food was tasty except for the cheesecake that was not good, service a bit slow given the off hour and few people there. Many gluten free choices. I am not a vegetarian...More

I got the special - broccoli sautéed with garlic - and it was delicious. The cafe has a very cool vibe (like most of Santa Cruz) and I'd definitely recommend a visit.
