It has been years since I have been to Native Foods Cafe. I needed something healthy in Aliso Viejo area before heading to the hospital to visit a relative. It was fine, the ingredients were fresh and at first you might think it is reasonably priced, but upon closer inspection, you realize it is not such a great deal after all.

avocado salad
Grilled Avocado Plate Freshly grilled with greens, tofu bacon, radishes and lemon vinaigrette
My aunt got this and she seemed to enjoy it, but look how small the portion is.
berry salad
Summer Berry Salad Fresh summer blueberries and strawberries tossed with kale, romaine, seasonal veggies and mango lime dressing
I picked the berry salad and expected to see enough berries to be called as such. The kale and romaine were fresh, but there was hardly any berry in the salad. It reminded me of the commercial, Where is the beef? Don’t mislead people by calling a salad a berry one, when in reality is a kale and romaine one.
