Diner Reviews
  • "I love the Sun Cafe's new location and addition of outside dinning but the food has taken a step downwards. Service was so very slow. After a half hour our waitress finally admitted it was taking a long time but would be right out, that it was due to a large party right before us, and we waited another 15 minutes. We sat inside in one of the back booths next to a very noisy table. I had the sunburger which i have had before and loved but this time it was lack-luster and flavorless. One of the reasons I made reservations here was to have their amazing chocolate cupcuakes. It was early in the evening and they were out, and out of the keylime desert to. Really at 7:30pm? Very disappointed."

  • "We've been enjoying SunCafe's food for a while now, but it was always cramped and challenging to park - but no more!! SunCafe has just moved to where Zach's used to be on Ventura Blvd. It is a spacious and beautiful location with a lovely outdoor patio in the front. I think the food is better than ever!"

  • "The food is unexpectedly delicious for being completely vegan. Portions too small and prices are high. Service a little spotty. We had sat down for almost an hour and nothing was brought to our table until we asked. But manager kind enough to put drinks on the house. We'll be back though we are not vegan."

  • "We made multiple visits. Exceptional food and a vibrant staff. Fig pizza with balsamic was great. The curry was world class. Risotto was creamy and comforting. Loved the tacos and kale salad with everything but the kitchen sink. Exceptional juices and smoothies to die for. The new location is light, airy and the colors, wood and furniture complement the cuisine. Josia was the perfect server - funny, bright, attentive and knowledgeable. Got the job done with grace and anticipated our needs. Again, exceptional."

  • "Yes we had reservations, but the staff seemed confused, there was not a table ready, and they kept asking if we had reservations, i.e.... do you have reservation before we got in the door, after we were inside ask three times, host looked in the book, confirmed party of three, then ask if we had a reservation??. Anyway there was no table waiting for us we followed the host through the place as he looked for a table, when one was readwe went to sit down and the manager came over and stopped us from sitting down, he then proceesed to sit down adjust the table legs with the napkins from the table, and then insted of removing himself quickly, he stayed seated and rearanged everything on the table to his liking, this was very strange to watch"

  • "This restaurant serves the most delicious vegan food! The service is always excellent. It is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Whether I'm meeting a friend for lunch or it's a special occasion for dinner, this is the place we choose. And on a hot summer afternoon, nothing beats swinging by and getting their Kale Shake to go!"

  • "I am a carnivore. My favorite food is a BLT Sandwich. I have vegan friends. My husband and I took two of those friends to Sun Cafe. While my husband was excited to be trying this place (he's not vegan but eats anything put in front of him) I was prepared to tolerate my dining experience. Well as it turns out I really enjoyed it. We had the "chicken" sliders to start. Delicious. I dared to have their BLT sandwich. Much to my amazement it was very good. Of course it lacked the crispness of actual bacon but their use of Fakin Bacon with some very flavorful sauce gave it great baconyflavor. I actually look forward to going back and trying something else. Thank you Sun Cafe for opening a door into the vegan realm for me."

  • "It was fantastic. great food a vegetarians dream. Seems to lean on the raw side. Would have liked a few more menu items with substance like an avocado dish- or eggplant or grilled broccolli or something but overall it was very good. Plan on spending 30-40 bucks per person.-unless you share stuff. The service was superb. Our waiter was wonderful."

  • "I bring many non-vegans here and they all love the food. You need a lot of time because the service is slow. My non-vegan friend loved her special of the day salad and will return. My son said the Pad Thai was the best he has had. My lasagna was terrific. The spinach salad is a favorite of all diners. If you are looking for comfort food the biscuits and gravy, mashed potatoes and gravy and the mac and cheese are your friends. The nachos with jicama chips are great to share and fun and delicious to eat. The Orange Cremesicle shake will remind you of the orange Cremesicle Popsicle you had as a kid. All the shakes and juices are delicious and good for you! "

  • "I LOVE Sun Café. The food is delicious and the wonderful shakes are so yummy!! My favorite is the Shamrock shake. The staff is so friendly and efficient. This is the best organic vegan restaurant I've been to in LA!! !My daughter and I have to have lunch or dinner there at least once a week! And check out the desserts. There's plenty to choose from and they're delightful! So far I'm stuck on the cupcakes but next time I'll check out the cheesecake. Definitely recommend Sun Café. "

  • "SunCafe is a delightful restaurant if you're at all interested in healthy,raw cuisine. The items are high quality,fresh, creative fare. I always enjoy my experience here, this was my 6th or so time - it's not quite in my neighborhood, yet worth it to drive to. They're moving to a larger space with more parking - can't wait!! The servers/staff are always friendly, know the menu well,have great personalities, as if they're serving me in their own home!!"

  • "Food was incredible! The mushroom Spinach Quinoa Risotto was amazing. Staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Everything we ate was delicious whether it was a Raw dish or a Vegan hot dish. The dessert and shakes were great too! If I could only have the Chef cook all my meals, I would be a very happy, healthy Vegan!! Looking forward to attending one of their demonstration classes."

  • "I was on a business trip to Universal City. After almost a week of not having my morning kale smoothies and vegan food my body was craving for healthy raw foods. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of dishes and how tasty Vegan dishes can be. I enjoyed the lunch so much I took my dinner take out. Friendly and reasonable price. I highly recommend this restaurant for non-vegan people who like to taste healthy foods."

  • "It's hard to find vegan & raw in the valley! I love this little place. It's small, with only three 2 tops outside, plus seating inside. My favorite are the zucchini tacos! Also, they have a food happy hour menu at 3pm. I don't remember what time it ends. Go check it out. If you eat this way you won't be disappointed."

  • "I just had my second meal at Sun Cafe, and it was as delicious as the first one. I plan to become a regular."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I was eager to try something new, but I think I'm too used to eating healthy home cooked meals where food isn't trying to be something else. My pizza was salty and had too much garlic. The Mac and cheese noodles were mushy. I had to drink lots of water after the meal to flush everything out. I wanted to like the meal because I have several friends who enjoy thus restaurant but I didn't."

  • "My wife was skeptical about my choice to come to Sun Café for V Day. I was confident however. Whenever u have artists as chefs with a unique vision... odds are high they'll deliver. Overall all the food was memorable and unique. We left full after a very impressive dessert. Our waitress was super friendly and cared about our mini reviews of the dishes that came out. definitely give Sun Cafe a try."

  • "I am not a raw food person, however found myself in love with this raw experience. The restaurant is small and quant. The servers are friendly and fun. And the food! Sooo delicious! The only thing I can complain about were the flowers on the table. I hate baby's breath and wilting roses. Maybe they should invest in cute lil succulents and a tea light. Other than that, just amazing."

  • "Great menu, unbelievably good food and very knowledgable staff. Their shakes is as good or better than shakes made with dairy products. Kale salad is better than other vegan restaurants in the valley and Los Angeles . Second time been there and will be coming back"

  • "This sweet little restaurant has terrific food! Our favorite are the Vegan Nachos. Wonderful! The food and service are all very good. Because it is a small place, the tables can get a little tight. It's a good idea to make an Open Table reservation, it does fill up!"

  • "I love this restaurant. I come here every Saturday either for a dine in meal or take out. My favorites are the raw crust pizzas and the pad thai! And definitely the kale salad!!! The flavors are so good and the food so light that I always leave feeling good. Also, the shakes CANNOT be missed. And if you manage to save room for the desserts, they will blow your mind. And on top of everything, the service is fantastic and everyone is super nice."
