They offer lunch for vegans and meat eaters alike! I love the avocado garlic sandwich. The owner is friendly.

Nothing fancy, but a good organic breakfast, and some bulk foods to purchase, too. We recommend the french toast.

Open on a Tuesday morning and recommended by Riverbend, we ordered coffee and omelets. Fresh ground, and its preparation interrupted by chatting locals (I always enjoy local banter) It took a little while to get our coffee which makes me somewhat grumpy but then very happy when it arrives. The omelet had garden vegetables, was tasty and I swear the... More

Ordered breakfast, and waited _literally_ 50 minutes to get our food! The cook wandered in some time after we placed our order, clearly drunk (smell of alcohol, shaky hands). He makes a comment about being overwhelmed. (We're 4 people, and that's overwhelming?) I must say that the food was good, fresh and healthy; but not quite enough to fill you.... More

Not much open this time of year, but Debbie, the charming and knowledgeable owner, makes scrumptious organic baked goods and also carries lots of natural products. Great morning coffee. She was a fount of info and steered us right for dinner also. Great place, especially if your no-tell doesn't have any breakfast.

We walked in ordered some kombucha and placed our food order, but the lady behind the counter said she couldn't make it. We asked if she was sold out- she wasn't and had... More

Thank you for your input. I clearly remember waiting on you and would like to clear things up. Misunderstandings do happen. When you asked me if we sold wheat grass shots I had told you no and I had said we had organic wheat grass powder to put in a smoothie if you would like one. I offered to make... More

Turtleback Oasis has a great selection of gluten free and organic foods as well as tasty smoothies and sandwiches. Owner, Deb makes an effort to offer locally grown produce, a wide selection of supplements and vitamins and pretty much take care of all your health needs.
