A local spot with an abundance of choices. The salads are awesome and the the majority of soups are tasty but sometimes require more seasoning. Walk up-service is curt, but prompt. No nonsense. A bit pricey. Portions can be shared. Options to sit in or outside. It can be a bit noisy inside when it fills up with patrons. Lots... More

One stop that satisfies everyone! My 15 year old is vegetarian as of 8 months ago so finding a restaurant for the whole Family can be a challenge. Domas is perfect. There's something for everyone and so far nothing on the menu has been a mess. My favorite is the temphe burger which is meaty and satisfying. My son likes... More

We've been eating there for seven years. You do stand online to order, but usually no more than a 10 minute wait. Prices are a little high but the portions are large and it's always fresh.

Was really looking forward to this visit as I've been vegetarian for many years but have just decided to go vegan. The portions were substantial but the taste, texture, and presentation of the food were not as good has I had hoped. Didn't expect the cafeteria style of ordering either. The locals really seemed to have liked this spot though... More

Love this place. It's become a staple go-to for healthy meals when we don't feel like cooking at home. The menu has so many great options, and we've never been disappointed with anything. Healthy and delicious food in a very casual atmosphere.

Breakfast , Lunch and Dinner options. A bit pricey but very healthy and organic. I enjoyed the Japanese Samurai Soup . Soba noodles in a miso broth. Edamame, Arame( seaweed),green onions,tofu,spinach,carrots, sesame seeds, topped with shredded daikon. Very filling.. Good for a cold or rainy day.Friendly staff to answer questions or recommend menu items.

Nice little vegetarian place in a somewhat unlikely setting in a commercial area on Capitola Rd.. Food choices are quite diverse, from Italian to Thai to Indian to standard American fare. Our meals were tasty and fresh, with generous portions. Ambience is simple and clean with "new-age" decor; you order and pay for food at the counter, and pick it... More

We went here with family while visiting. I am not vegan and I don't eat tofu, but I'll try anything. Had no idea what to expect but after reading the menu, I couldn't decide what to order because it all sounded so tasty!! I had a breakfast burrito that came with a salad and my son had the cornmeal pancakes.... More
