Here's the deal- it's a set menu and it is absolutely worth it for the quality of food you're getting! You come in, the days meal is listed at the cashier, you pay, you head on over to pick up some salad and soup and maybe some delicious tea blend if you fancy. Put your main order in with the...

I went with my cousin to celebrate meeting up in Austin and as we both wanted a meal that was healthy and nutritious and yummy at the same time this place fit the bill. The restaurant is easy to reach (side street of Lamar Blvd) and has plenty of parking in a big parking lot that serves this street. I... More

Casa de Luz is located in an old "casa" in Austin. You walk to the restaurant through a passageway of bamboo and palm trees and calm. There is a very zen-like feeling. For lunch we paid a fee of $8 which included soup (that day, zucchini cauliflower), salad (mixed greens beautifully dressed), tea, and a plate of the day. You... More

This is definitely a different way of enjoying a meal. But it is nice not to have to worry about what is in my food. It is fantastic.

Although I not a huge fan of the Macrobiotic diet, much preferring bbq over a strictly vegetarian offering at Casa de Luz, this place has a pretty good meal. They serve a salad and soup, followed by a hearty and tasty plate of vegetarian Macrobiotic yumminess.

This restaurant is very unique. You pay $12 person upon entering and help yourself to the soup and salad of the day, along with your choice of beverages. Once you have eaten the soup and salad, they bring you the plate of the day, all vegetarian and having nothing that could cause an allergic reaction. No gluten, no peanuts or... More

The food is always delicious, vegan, whole foods. I love that I can go here and not worry about what they are feeding me and not ruin my diet going out to eat. Usually serves brown rice, beans, cooked greens, pickled veggies and something else delicious. You also get unsweetened tea, soup and salad with a but based sauce.

This is by far the best macrobiotic place I have ever been to. I've tried and tried to find anything similar to this while traveling all over and have yet to experience anything coming close. If you are reading this and you know of anything, message me and tell me! I live close to NYC now and there are so... More

I loved going to this place! For $12 flat (no tip and no tax charged here) you get great iced tea, soup, salad, and an entrée plate with 4 different things on it. I ate outside on a beautiful night overlooking the playground and it was a fantastic evening. I'm vegan and gluten free so this place was perfect for... More
