I like this store compared to other, more accessible health food chains which seem to think most people have $6 for 8 oz of soup. Or $10.99 salad bars that seem filled with new fad concoctions rather than just keeping recipes simple and allow me to modify as I choose. I go out of my way for this particular store... More

I am a foodie who strives to cook/eat organic and Mother's is the best of the best across all relative categories. The restaurant serves yummy "clean" food, the selection of organic fruits & veggies is terrific and so is the gluten-free section. Also, we benefited greatly from the assistance of a woman working in the supplements area--plus, the selection of... More

I recently revisited this market after 20 years. I had moved out of town so I wasn't anywhere near a Mother's Market. I remember it having more choices back then, but then again my diet wasn't as strict. I was expecting to find more healthier food options here but was disappointed that I couldn't. We ate at the restaurant and... More

One of my "go-to" spots for anything and everything regarding healthy living and eating. A paradise for vegans and nutrition conscience folks. The supplement section is huge. Please ask for what you need rather than wasting time to find it. The staff and s beyond informed and helpful. However, the restaurant/kitchen staff is another story. After not getting any table...

It has a very nice buffet with tasty organic cooked foods. I really enjoyed it and I can say that I liked it better than the buffets in Whole Foods. During my stay in Costa Mesa, I ate at Mother's market and Kitchen three times and I would go there again!

Went here for breakfast and had the Huevos Rancheros with two medium over eggs and guac on the side. The eggs were cooked well and the whole dish came together very nicely on top of the good corn tortillas. The guac wasn't the best I ever had, but it was good nonetheless. After, went shopping, and picked up a few... More

After reading the previous good to great reviews about Mothers, I decided to give it a try. The cafe is in the back of the supermarket so be aware when u walk into the storefront and see isles and refrigerators of food. Back to the cafe.... I am not a big vegan so finding some things to get excited about... More

First went to Mother's in 1979. My how it's changed over time! It's evolved in so many ways, and the restaurant is no exception. Their menu is mostly organic and designed for good healthy eating, but the food is not fringy as many meat eaters might want to think. Big juice bar selection. A nice selection of breakfast and lunch... More

Mother's is one of my favorite places to visit when in Southern California. I always make sure I get there for their great products as well as have a meal and/or juice drink from the Kitchen during my visit.
