ABOUT US

Back in 1970 this small “hippie joint” opened its doors in Tustin to an unsuspecting town. Little did this city know what a trendsetter Rutabegorz restaurant would become. Serving only coffee and desserts in the beginning, Rutabegorz has since evolved into one of Orange County’s favorite health food restaurants. With three locations to meet the needs of its “regulars,” it can sometimes seem as if there are not enough “Ruta’s” to go around.

Along with many vegetarian dishes, Ruta’s also serves white breast of chicken, turkey, albacore tuna and assorted lean deli meats. Our salad dressings are fresh and house made and our condiments are low in fat. As usual, we use only the finest and freshest fruits and vegetables. And, our homemade desserts, well, they’re sinful but oh-so-hard-to-resist and worth the extra cheating!

Our mission has always been to provide our communities with a healthy alternative to traditional restaurant offerings without sacrificing taste. We provide “old school” vegetarian values—lots of fresh and natural foods. We strive to make your experience here positive, and hope you’ll enjoy our unique food, casual atmosphere, and friendly servers.

Remember: You are what you eat from your head to your feet. Don’t be a fast-food junky. You can feel good and energetic while enjoying all that your body needs.
