“Good food that's good for you.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Essentially it's health food -- which is not my preference. But it is attractively prepared as you wait with fresh ingredients and tastes good for this type of food.

They also have an espresso bar and go a good job with that. The atmosphere of the whole place is your basic coffee shop.

Coming from Santa Fe, they are on the right on the main road - 84/285. You pass the Dream catcher theater and keep an eye open for them as you come down the hill into Espanola.

“Not for everyone. ”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Let's start by saying this place isnt for everyone. Mostly a vegetarian specialty kind if place. Organic coffee was good, but worth the price? Specialty salad with quinoa was good but expensive. Overall the place was ok just not down home warm up my insides cooking.

“Great Potato Pea Dosas”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We loved their potato pea dosas! A dosa is a light, gluten-free thin crispy pancake filled with potato masala. It was served with a lentil dal and cilantro yogurt. So delicious. They serve them on Friday's so don't miss out.

“Healthy Delicious Eats”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

I enjoy food, but also hate feeling heavy and tired after eating. Desert sage makes delicious food that is not only great, but also very healthy. I don't eat wheat/gluten and they always have options for me. Everything is really fresh and made to order. Yummy Desserts, hot/cold drinks, wifi and nice hang out atmosphere.
