Bay Naturals Cafe is a wonderful choice for healthy, natural food in the Myrtle Beach area. Located inside Bay Naturals Market, Myrtle Beach’s premier health market, the café offers a delicious selection of homemade meals and goodies, with options for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free individuals. This friendly market is similar to a Whole Foods store, only with a fresh, local touch.
The café offers both a breakfast and lunch/dinner menu. Many vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options are available on the menu. All items are conveniently marked according to allergens. In addition, gluten-free bread is available to replace any wrap.
Breakfast includes a tempting selection of natural specialties, including burritos, muffins, granola bowls, egg dishes, smoothies, and more.
Lunch/dinner includes a selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, baked goods, smoothies, and more. They also have a rotating selection of fresh baked cakes to test out for dessert.
We ordered a few items from each menu. From the breakfast menu, the Smoked Potato Burrito was absolutely delicious. The burrito included an interesting combination of ingredients, including: grilled red potatoes, tomatoes, tempeh, regular or dairy free cheese, and a vegan mayo.
From the lunch menu, we tried out the soup of the day, a delicious sweet tomato chowder. The hummus and veggie wrap (which came with regular or roasted red peppers and every veggie available) was a real treat, especially when combined with a side of vegan potato salad.
In addition, the cake selections of the day (Carrot Cake and German Dark Chocolate) were fantastic treats at the end of the meal.
Service was friendly and staff was well informed when asked questions about various ingredients and allergens.
Bay Naturals has a wonderful outdoor dining area complete with nice décor and a shaded awning, which is just perfect for those hot South Carolina summer afternoons. An indoor dining room is also available for those who can’t take the extreme heat, although sitting outside in the fresh air is highly recommended!
Bay Naturals Cafe is a wonderful healthy treat for the whole family. Next time you vacation to Myrtle Beach, bypass the chains and give your body some delicious, nutritious food. You won’t be disappointed!
