On a day trip to Carlsbad Village from San Diego, we stumbled onto The Naked Cafe. What a pleasant surprise! It is in the heart of The Village and an easy walk from the Coaster train stop.The menu includes both breakfast and lunch items. We chose to sit inside, but the outside courtyard seating seemed very popular. The menu includes... More

WOW - what a selection for fresh/wholesome breakfasts. We hit it right with the pumpkin pancakes - 3 big and fluffy! Really enjoyed the helpful wait staff - they narrowed down the best selections for our family! Our first Cali breakfast experience!

My friend and I had the pulled pork sammy and the buddha bowl. Both were very delicious. Service was fast and friendly.

Because I value clean eats and it's a great location form the beach we have been here twice. The food is fine and atmosphere fine service fine. Nothing unique or special. Not understanding not bad just average place to decent ingredients.

Breakfast with a group of friends after a beach walk - outside seating in a quiet courtyard (we were early -before the stores opened). Great breakfast menu with interesting and delicious flavor combinations, sweet, savory, spicy, mild. Well worth the two block walk from the beach.

The food is always so fresh and as the name promises, no additives or preservatives just good tasty cooking. We always sit outside in the courtyard but there is plenty of indoor seating too. Well worth a visit for lunch.

This place is truly amazing, yes, it's very healthy, but they make healthy incredibly delicious. All the staff was friendly and helpful. My daughter had sesame ginger chicken soft tacos with coconut rice. She was not sure whether she would like it, but ended up loving it! I had the dual delight. I only had the chicken, the serving was... More

We eat here two to three times everytime we go to the beach for a week. Food is great and friendly service too. Husband loves the Ying and Yang and organic pancakes with 100% maple are the bomb.

Every once in a while, you don't feel like fussing in the kitchen but you're not looking for complex chef intricate food. You just want clean, healthy ingredients in a rice bowl, a wrap/sandwich, or a salad. Then Naked Cafe is your place. It's my wife's favorite but I've learned to like it too. Staff is straight ahead knowledgeable and... More

The food may be fresh, organic and have the pretension that everything they serve is super healthy, but I'm not sure that this is a place for everybody. Actually, I figure that the quality of the food they serve is about the same as would be served in any other reputable restaurant. If you're a health oriented person, this could... More
