Restaurant Review :: Nature's Express

Nature's Express on Solano Avenue is only an 18 bus ride away from Downtown Berkeley.

Whether you're vegan or just looking for a healthier alternative to your usual pit stops, Nature’s Express’ plethora of all-natural choices may be just what you're craving. Their new location on East Solano Avenue in Berkeley is located just a breath away from the Albany Twin Theater in the perfectly serene Solano neighborhood.

Customers can either get their food to-go or dine in on their tall bar stools.

Inside the store, the color palette, as well as the friendly staff, is bright and inviting. The comfortable red window nooks, combined with the chic bar stools, make a trip to the restaurant perfect when you need a quick break. There are health-based books along the walls so you can enjoy a light read while you enjoy your meal.

Customers can catch up on reading while munching on their delicious plant-based burgers.

The plant-based menu is impressive; a repertoire of burgers, ranging from the spicy black bean patty to the lentil patty, include sun-dried tomato sauce and mushrooms. The fries are air-baked and come in two flavors: regular potato and sweet potato. There is also an array of salads, wraps, sandwiches, and sweets – all organic and made with your health in mind. Here's a sample of what I tried while visiting:

I started off with a cous cous salad.

Then, I tried my friend's spicy black bean burger.

Finally, I made some room for the spicy black bean burger with mushrooms and air-baked original fries.

When you're in the mood for healthier fast food, just make your way to Nature's Express at 1823 Solano Avenue.
