    The food was GREAT! Contrary to what others have to say about the aesthetic quality of the building/interior, I personally think that the kitschyness and vintage appeal work really well! It makes the restaurant stand out and enjoyable.

    The service here used to be terrible, but it has greatly improved. Lots of different burger patty choices. Food is delicious. Open late.

    Pros: great vegetarian comfort food, cute tables

    Cons: a bit pricey for diner food

    My friends and I went to Saturn Cafe not knowing it was a vegetarian restaurant. I'm vegetarian so it was no problem for me, but they were a bit concerned. They really enjoyed their dishes but I have to say that the grilled cheese was tops! They also have the best milkshakes. The atmosphere is fun and casual and prices are reasonable. Definitely check it out if you're in the area!

    Coming here to eat is a Santa Cruz tradition for my friends and I. We love the french fries and the earth-friendly options. They specialize in making healthy vegan/vegetarian grub absolutely amazing. The vibe is awesome too. Be prepared for lots of tattoos, brightly-died hair, fishnets, and piercings. Staff is always friendly though.

    Pros: The waitress from Zachary's doesn't work there

    Cons: Absolutely everything, including the price

    I really like the design of Saturn (each table has a different theme), but I have yet to find something that I like there. The service is horrible. The employees are very nice, but seem to be moving on their own time and not the

    How could a health food place be bad? The service is borderline nasty and their meals never seem hot. I love the decor here though. I'm starting to lose faith in the Santa Cruz Dining Scene. Is there ANY good food in this town? Everywhere

    This place has a flavor all its own. For example, if you wear a wig on Tuesdays, you get a discount. It's a vegetarian/ vegan-friendly kind of place, but don't let that scare you. I've taken my steak loving brother there many times, and he always loves it.

    Saturn Cafe is a concept eatery: fill the menu with fake meat alternatives to burgers, chicken, and sandwiches, fill the jukebox with goth, punk, and rock, and bridge it together with cute punk waitresses. Great feng shui in there too.

    Call me old fashion but when I'm in a restaurant I don't want to be served by over-tattooed, over-pierced, alternative/goth not motivated waiters. They all seem to be mad at the whole world.

    Whenever I drive on down to Santa Cruz from the Bay Area, I always have to stop at the Saturn Cafe and get my Fakin' Bacon Cheeseburger fix. They are amazing! You can pick from several burger substitutes for this. Also try the Hibiscus

    Odd, I would hardly call Saturn a dive. Funky, hip, unique, fun, loud, laid back, expressive, yes... but not a dive. The decor is great featuring giant tattoo flash art, stuffed animals embedded in tabletops, glitter paint, flame
