“Cafeteria with a difference”
Review of Mother Nature's

Mother Nature's
Ranked #69 of 247 Restaurants in Saint John
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We had tried to eat at the Mediterranean Restaurant nearby but after waiting for over 20 minutes and our order had not been taken (and it was not busy), we were in a hurry so thought a cafeteria style would speed it up. We were more than impressed. One in our group was fasting for Ramadan and they offered to make up the meal and have it ready to go when we left so we could take it with us. It was hot and ready to go at the right moment. Those who tried the lasagna special were impressed. Much better than typical cafeteria lasagna. The women behind the counter were efficient and helpful and our group of seven was served within minutes. The prices were great and everything tasty. Would try the place again when travelling.

Watch the 'chef' prepare your dinner to order or get an order of lasagna. This is canteen service with no frills but the price is right.

You don't expect a place like this in Saint John.
It's cafeteria style service, but the service is wonderful. We were amazed at the caring attitude, the comfortable banter: where you from, how long are you here, etc.... while our selections were being prepared. The food is fresh, natural, and truly lovingly prepared.
The prices are more than reasonable. Three of us each had different kinds of dishes, a mix of salads nicely seasoned and then chicken and beef stir fried mains, with lots of other choices including at least three kinds of lasagne selections and some really swell looking deserts.
Very casual, very friendly. Well worth the time. Next time we're in Saint John, this is one place we'll revisit for sure.

Great fast and home style cooking. Healthy food that tastes great. Fast efficient place to eat that won't cost an arm and a leg compared to Swiss Chalet etc. Better quality food too!
