In our area of Los Angeles, all of the Souplantations have closed their doors. We saw this on our trip and thought we'd have a nice casual meal. The food was fresh but the selection was nothing like it used to be.

The place has excellent food, the soups are very delicious and some of them say "spicy" but it's not really spicier than the Mexican food. The price per person is 14USD including a drink.

This one of those wonderful California ideas. A delightful and healthy endless salad bar with tasty and healthy choices including lots of fresh simple vegetables. A seeming endless array of dressings are available. The soups yesterday included a carrot Sriracha flavor that we all enjoyed....More

We came here for lunch, and due to senior discount, the 3 of us had lunch for $30 total. What a bargain, and delicious fresh food. Great salad bar.

We dine at one of the Souplantations in San Diego at least twice a week. The recipes for a variety of soups and vegetables are real palate pleasers. I never liked broccoli until I tried Joan's Broccoli Madness. I am stuck on the chicken noodle...More

I have visited this vegetarian restaurant 2 times. This year the quality and variety of the food was not as good as last year. The buffet had many salads and veggies but the soups (more than 6 types) were not very tasty as last year...More

The Manager runs a *very* tight ship here! Details obviously matter. Staff takes pride in their work and ownership of their assigned duties. Throw in a nice discount as members of Club Veg, and it's a perfect place for a healthy lunch or dinner!
