My wife and I have eaten here a couple of times and still aren't sure about the food. The food descriptions in the menu seem good and then what you receive seems off. Yes, they are more healthy than other places but healthy doesn't have to be bland does it? The food items we had were pretty mediocre(cheese bread, vegetable... More

We live down the street, just moved here and was really glad to find a good place to eat. It is pretty reasonably priced as compared to the area resturants. Everything looks fresh and so far everything tastes great. And their servings are generous. I love love love that they serve their dishes with brown rice. We feel very healthy... More

I have never gotten anything here that I didn't like. The Cocky Leeky soup is my absolute favorite. The pastas are good, the sandwiches are yummy, and the fondue is fun and flavorful. Great for vegetarians, and the food is so fresh and healthy. The cheep appetizers that change all the time are an amazing value. Eat here!!

My husband and I love this place. Its in beautiful old town Tustin. If its a nice day, which of course it usually is in So Cal, you can sit outside. Their Cockie Leeky soup is to die for. Don't for get to get a cookie for the road!

The restaurant was so accommodating, getting a table for our large family gathering and letting us make changes from the menu when needed. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fun.

I have been a fan of this small local restaurant chain since my college days and their funky style, and excellent menu has been consistently delicious. One of the first "health food" restaurants around, they have grown to a series of three spots in the OC. Their locations in downtown Fullerton, orange and Tustin are as charming as the food... More

Rutabegorz is a quaint, understated restaurant in Old Town Tustin filled with healthy, hearty, affordable food. Quantities are typically big, especially for the modest price and are packed with flavor. They have everything on the menu - their multi-page menu includes an impressive array of salads, sandwiches, soups, Mexican food, comfort foods, trendy foods. The flavors are bold, and the... More
