We went on a whim. The menu had interesting choices and we enjoyed the meal. The poor review is the attitude of the staff. We were ignored for quite a while. When the meal was brought, there was no check back. Won't be going back.

This is a diner-type place. Service varies on the time and day you're there. The food is always good. It is vegetarian/vegan, with a lot of great choices. Just don't miss their shakes. They are SO good!

Best place to go for diner food if you're a vegetarian or vegan, also many gluten-free options. Love their atmosphere, service is always great, and so far never had a disappointed meal.

We truly enjoyed our food from Saturn Cafe. Vegetarian options can sometimes be boring but Saturn's was flavorful and delicious. I had the jalapeño chicken sandwich and it was awesome!

We were passing through town and were excited to stop at Saturn Cafe. The service was a little slow despite the restaurant being pretty empty, but we still got everything we needed. The peanut sauce dish was really good. The soups that we tried were...More
