Service
 
Clean-living converts swear by the "tasty" , "organic" Californian cuisine for which these crunchy cafes are known, including "housemade veggie burgers" , "fresh vegetable juices" and other "affordable" staples served in a "cool atmosphere" ; skeptics who insist it's "nothing special" add that service varies from "accommodating" to "spotty" , but the opportunity "to eat out with friends and not blow your diet" is nice "even if you are a meat lover."

I have only gone here with my girlfriends for breakfast, but we like it here. The breakfast burrito (add bacon) and the power bowl are my two favorites. The sambazon bowl is not my favorite, weird texture. The basil pesto tofu scramble is interesting because there is no eggs mixed with the tofu. It is a good choice for a tofu lover, but don't go in expecting an egg breakfast scramble. The smoothies are refreshing and good to split one with a friend since they are pricey on top of a breakfast dish.

This place has gone really far down hill. The menu is more limited, the service is poor, and everyone who works upfront seems to have an attitude. The water cups all also seem to have soapy film in them, so they end up with bubbles when you fill them with water. And, the food is mediocre.

Sadly, this place has undergone a major decline recently. It used to be one of my favorite places, and my partner and I would go here for their fresh juices, wheatgrass, salads, and smoothies. They now no longer have wheatgrass juice, the "fresh" juices are no longer made to order (so no substitutions and they're not really fresh), and they won't make any substitutions for the smoothies either, which is no good for someone like myself with food intolerances and special diet needs. The cooked food is okay, but too oily. The staff often seem unhappy, (therefore the service is slow and not great) and the overall vibe is just bad/depressing. Not at all how it used to be. I'm not sure what happened... maybe a change in management? I suggest they go back to how this place used to be when it was more vibrant. Their other locations dull seem to be ding better. We need places like this that serve organic food. They just need to bring back the wheatgrass and be more willing/able to customize things. If corporate places like Jamba Juice can do it, a place like the Plant ought to be able to do it too. Otherwise they will continue to lose clientele.
