Market & Cafe

The Follow Your Heart® Market & Restaurant is one of southern California’s oldest and best-loved natural food eateries.

Located in Canoga Park since 1970, the atmosphere of this vegetarian establishment is both comfortable and casual. Some have described it as a trip back into the ‘70s, but we prefer to think of “The Heart” simply as a place where people can be themselves. It’s one of those places that will start to feel like home after a while and many of our customers can be seen dining on a daily basis.

The restaurant is tucked away in the back corner of our market, so don’t be bashful… come right on in. The wooden decor lends itself to the community feeling for which Follow Your Heart® is so famous. Patrons may dine at the counter or at a table inside or out on the relaxing patio. The counter is an especially unique part of the café experience, and many a friendship has begun as a result of a “chance encounter” here.

Our home-style comfort food is modestly priced and the portions are generous. The menu is lacto-vegetarian, meaning that we include some dairy products, but use no meat, poultry, fish or eggs. Most items are available for vegans (made without any animal products including honey) and we use seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible.  We also offer an exclusively gluten-free menu upon request.

In addition to our regular menu, specials are served at each meal. Our hearty soups are one thing that we are particularly known for and several are offered throughout the day (both dairy and non-dairy). You can also find a deliciously low fat and lowsodium soup every day.
