Best Bean Pies!!!

My husband and I drive from San Diego county to come and buy their bean pies! I am a first-timer and its delicious. The pie is always eaten before we get beck home!


Either the tuna sandwich, grilled chicken salad or the turkey burger would be awesome for the meal. Each is made just right. Great place to eat.


Overrated food but great job marketing...

One example of several, their false advertising is unacceptable, healthy "grilled" chicken and veggies are both cooked in a pan with oil. When I confronted them about their false advertising they politely dismissed it with no concessions.

Nothing tastes more disappointing then hypocrisy to me I'd rather grab a Big Mac then return here. Peace


Simply wholesome gets 5 stars for so many reasons. This place is a staple in the community and promotes health and business ownership to the community. I'm not a vegetarian, but I love their veggie burger. I also enjoy all of their Jamaican patties, primarily the spinach! If you need fresh ingredients for a recipe or anything related to health and wellness, go to simply wholesome. This place is legendary and everyone is very aware of the mark it has made in the community and the positivity it continues to promote. Historic!


Best Jamaican patties in the world!! Sorry Jamaica :) but they're so good though.


Been coming to this place since it was located across the street .... food is great and great staff . Thanks for the great service for many years


Love them.. I go at least twice a week on my lunch break. So much good stuff to choose from! I'm hooked on the "Coffee lift" fusion shake and the "Wholesome tostada" 😋


I love this place. I love the environment. it's a festive mood here definitely. if you're on the healthy side please visit. too many healthy options. Check their calendar of events they always have something going on here socially. The owners seem to have that passion in their eyes about what they're doing.


Best restaurant in Los Angeles, AND IT'S HEALTHY TOO!! Extremely diverse menu so anyone with a half a taste buds can find a delicious meal or drink. Service was awsome!


The best!!!! They have great healthy food, awesome products for health, hair, skin and nails, just a great old school place to meet up with friends in the middle of the day in L.A.


Seriously a gem!! Can't believe I never knew about this place for 2 years and I live a mile away! This place first off has like everything and the service and the people make it feel like your true mom and pop! I fell in love instantly


🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 good customer service great atmosphere, prices, and selections. Can't wait to come back.


Fish delight special is great. Lots of food and all healthy


Love their patties and vegan dessert options. Call in to shorten some of the wait time.


ayyyyyye never been there but seems "fresh" get it hahahahah


Excellent food,services and great Smoothies


My family and I are always in Simply Wholesome. It has what you need to live a holistic and healthy life style. Although, having a fresh produce section would be a good addition to the place. I'm sure they are fulfilling a seriously positive niche in the community. A small Farmers Market on Sundays could definitely be a plus. 😊


Awesome spot for delicious wholesome food. Their Jamaican patties are a cut above the rest. I detour here ever so often to get my patty fix. Store also great for your health food supplies.


This place is great with fresh healthy food and drink but the customer service needs to be better and there is a long wait time for drinks to be made which needs to be improved ASAP. They also have a health food store to get everything from books to soaps to vitamins.


Nice spot! They sell some yummy meat pies, fajita wraps, and shakes. My daughter loves their bean pies! I love the sweet potatoes pecan pie.


Fresh made food with healthy ingredients. I never have any regrets after I eat here.


I've been coming here for years buying their supplements, that are on the pricey side, but convenient. They usually have what I want. I haven't explored different foods here at the restaurant but I have had the vegan patties which are always a favorite for me.


Great Local Black owned Operated Restuarant/ Store. The Food is Great! You have options from tofu to chicken, collard, yam. Jamaican Patty's. And I am so in Love with their drink options. From over 20 smoothies and detox drink choices. Very friendly staff everytime that I visit. If you listen to the music from those artist from Los Angeles you always can hear them mentioning this place in their songs.


Healthy choices, welcoming environment and great products in their health store ! Waiting time for food and drinks definitely varies and may take longer peak hours but totally worth it ! The BUY 10 DRINKS get 1 FREE rewards is great! Love Simply 💙💚❤ !!!!


Good healthy food but the service is very bad. Loooong waits in line, very slow service and cashiers could be much friendlier. I haven't gotten a wrong order in a while but that use to be an issue.


Frank and Aaron are gems! I love visiting this spot! Live reggae band on Saturday nights and great conversations with beautifully spirited shoppers and staff. This place was my safe haven when I needed to get away from all of the facades and zombies I encounter while living in Hollywood. I met some lifelong friends in this place and also purchased some products and produce that I had a hard time finding elsewhere. The smoothies are bomb!


All of the food and desserts were absolutely delicious and the service was great. I brought my non-vegan/vegetarian family here and they loved it. The food came quickly and everyone wad so kind. Can't wait to go back


This place is really close to my house, and I've recently become a regular. The first time I went I was very impressed by the food I ordered. A veggie burger with veganaise, a smoothie, and fries. But since then nothing has tasted the same. The smoothie could taste totally different each time, the fries could be seasoned totally different each time and I often have taken home a veggie burger with a broken, burnt patty and a burnt bun top. So basically TERRIBLE or maybe just no quality control. I also usually get servers with bad attitudes too. But I'll probably keep spending my money here from time to time since I'm a vegetarian and vegetarian food is hard to find around the area.


Healthy & tasty food for a low price! Great service, good staff. They have been open for a long time :)


This is my third time ordering Nubian tacos and get home and the ingredients that are listed on menu are not in the taco! Worse...I take back my order after getting attitude over the phone from the staff (1st man blatantly put me on hold because he has no idea of how to conduct himself customer service wise) 2nd call she tells me owner not available to speak with me! Took my # and suggested I bring it back and get order right! I go back and their reasoning is oh! we don't have the purple cabbage and green onions! All I got was cucumbers! Their solution was take my bag from me and give me back my money! I am sadden by the lack of customer service and they should not sell the item if ingredients are not in my selection that I am paying for! My ratings for you is 0! Not coming back!!!


Food is ok but their customer service is the worst. Attitude is not ok for business.


Man, where to start.

The food, amazing! They have tons of vegen options, and non vegen soul food as well.

Their drink selection is right on point, I didn't think they would have alkaline water, with Apple cider vinegar drinks too.

The music is just right for eating and chilling with friends.

The portions of food is right for what you pay for if.

I didn't get to go through their store, but my buddy did, and he said they EVERY thing you need as a negus in America.


Finger-licking good food not for just tongue & stomach but, also for mind body & soul. I had "garden burrito" & "masala's (something something ) "...

The best tastiest food ever.


I love this place. The food, vibe, occasional live music and all.

Also the food...


Great Jamaican Patties! Highly recommend the Spinach and Jerk Chicken ones.


Great food and customer service. I love their Jamacan patties.


Sunday, 21 January 2018: I live 3 hours from Los Angeles, Hollywood and Santa Monica. On Saturday, 20 January, I was visiting my 87 year old uncle in the city of Santa Monica. Earlier, I had spoken to my friend, Harold. He told me that he wanted to treat me to a meal that was a bit more healthy. I went to the gym that afternoon and when I was finished, I was hungry and ready to eat. I drove to the city of Englewood and picked him up and we arrived at Simply Wholesome restaurant. This was my first time. I could tell from the moment, I walked in that the atmosphere was a cool vibe. I was happy that it was African American owned and the kitchen staff was African {Black} American too. I looked around while listening to live Jamaican music. My buddy and I joined the line. I was greeted by a very nice cute young woman with brown skin and short hair. Her name was Alex. Her personality and attitude was great. The 30's something dark skin man working the register was also nice as was another nice young light brown skin girl in her 20's. The menu looked good with all sorts of veggie and regular items. I was a curious when I saw Mexican food on the menu. I know that anyone can cook other ethnics food, but I always prefer Mexican food to be cooked by Mexicans, Soul food to be cooked by African American people, Chinese food to be cooked by Chinese people. When I eat at Israeli Jewish restaurants, the entire staff are Israeli Hebrew speaking Jews.Overall, my meal and the milk shake was great. However, I did have a problem with the opened plastic fork, spoon and knife. For health and sanitation reasons, I Never want a waiter/cashier to touch my eating utensils with their hands. Hands carry germs from touching counter tops, soiled plates and money. They should be pre-wrapped in plastic. I asked for butter with my cornbread and it too so long that I would have been finished with my meal, so I had to go to counter and get it myself. Alex was busy taking care of some many tables, and sweeping up the floor. She needed more help. When I told Mrs. April the owner, she was not all smiles with me, as she gave me the butter and salsa. Later I told April {owner} that I liked the food a lot, she did not smile, just nodded and kept moving. I understand, Not everyone is a "people person". They need at least two waiters/waitresses at all times to cut down on the long wait. Over all, food and milk shakes are good. I will bring my wife and daughter here in the future. I give this place a thumb up and 4 stars.


If you want a healthy alternative to fast food or just home cooking this is the spot!


They made me wait 30min + for a salad. It was very unprofesional and I ended up having to get a refund because it was backed up that bad. Most likely won’t be eating here anymore.


Best Soul Vegetarian restaurant & health food store in LA. Serving Jamaican Patties, super veggie burgers, smoothies and more. Even food for meat eaters.


Buy black! Support black businesses!

Plus good ass food!

Try the lentil burger!!!!


It's been a while since I've been to Simply Wholesome. I ordered the vegetarian burrito but it lacked taste and flavor. I also had the berry surprise shake and I'm disappointed . The shake tasted like a sugary icee from AM/PM. I guess they've gotten away from wholesome natural foods. They sell Jamaican meat pies and the choices are not wholesome. So, I probably won't be going back. I hope they get back to a natural and vegan way as their options.


Got a great smoothie from here. Would suggest to any health minded individual.


I love the food here!!! The place is always crowed but that's what great food attracts, crowds!! I simply order my food by phone and from being in customer service myself, I try to understand that stuff happens!!

Keep up the great work guys!!!


Customer service is seriously lacking! Been on hold for almost 15 minutes! FOUR people picked up the phone to inform me that someone else will take my order... How long does it take to write an order down?! Icing on the cake: as people were picking up the phone, I heard them asking each other was the customer still on hold, which means you know I am waiting and you are purposely not answering the phone. Lastly, someone picked up the call by accident without even acknowledging me and basically put the call immediately on hold! UNACCEPTABLE! Why do WE always have to have issues surrounding customer service?! Ex. Poor attitudes and faulty management skills.


Maybe it was a fluke, but we waited close to an hour for our food. We asked a couple of times too. The bean and chicken burrito was delicious though.


I've been coming here for many years and still discovering new tasty items to savor. The restaurant side has a open patio with live music during the summer. The market side has a wide variety of healthy food, vitamins and books .


We just found Simply Wholesome while staying in the area. Two teenaged girls were thrilled w healthy shakes and vegan wraps!!


We eat lunch and dinner here often. It is our go to place to take family and friends who visit from out of town. It is a respite from the city, stepping inside is like entering your Auntie's eclectic home already filled with tasty food! They almost always have live music on their plant-filled outdoor patio. We like to order our food, claim a table and then browse the health and nutrition store and book shelves. Take your time here and enjoy the sights and sounds as well as the DELICIOUS food!


Wish I could give 5 stars as I have been supporting for over 5 years now (when in town). The service the last two times was awful and the patties are no longer magic. We came all the way from AZ and we will definitely not return. Ms. April was really good at customer service via telephone which is the only reason for 3 stars.


I have an obsession and addiction to this place! They have the most affordable breakfast that is healthy and all natural! The people here are friendly and fast. You can't go wrong with the hot bar for lunch either.

If you need your vitamins, go to the back and they staff will help you with any problem you might have, they are SO knowledgeable.


Great little store with a bit of everything you need!

Tons of natural healing remedies & teas!

I even found some GF cookies I've been searching for.

They also have a fun selection of crystals!

As for the restaurant, the menu is quite extensive and there was live music on Saturday night! A fun place to hang out! Service is fast!

The fries were AMAZING!!!

The avocado sandwich was really good.

The mac-n-cheese had good flavor without a ton of cheese.

Cornbread & plantains were okay.

Chicken tacos had a lot of meat, but flavor was just okay.

Parking & seating were limited on Saturday at 6pm.


Atmosphere was nice food was good Nubian tacos..

Incense were sold here my favorite and live music..

My company was the best..😊


The patties are worth the visit. The nachos are sinfully delicious, and they're adjacent to a natural food store. I'm thankful there are healthy options that can be made available to all. I wish they had more locations.


Simply wholesome the food is good. But you don't get what you pay for. they need to up their food portions we understand it's a health restaurant so therefore be a little bit more generous on your food portions.


Feel free to eat, drink, and indulge in the atmosphere. If you are short on time, I recommend you call ahead. Whatever you do, I encourage you to experience this neighborhood gem. Blessings!


This place in general is FULL of love! I'm so happy to have a black owned business close to the hood. Thank y'all. You help me feel powerful.




I LOVE this place. I really started going here because my favorite brand is sold there, but their restaurant part is really good. I love their chicken breast sandwich😋 I recommend this place if you're in need of any natural products.


Could be better. Not in love with this place but the atmosphere is very relaxed you don’t feel rushed but the cashier was not very helpful. They were concerned with having a conversation with everyone around me . So I didn’t feel like I really was assisted. It was my first time and I was excited to try this restaurant. I enjoyed that you can take your time and eat and have conversation with friends/family. The prices are slightly higher. I feel like it is still reasonably priced. Like there is not a meal over $17.00 Although you Can easily spend at least $25 per person or more depending. Overall I would come back . I would try something different I had a cabbage pattie and the veggie burrito and the #50 (smoothie) . I wanted more veggies in my burrito or something more flavorful. Instead it was pretty salty. The smoothie was ok. I’ll try a different flavor next time . But nothing I got this go round was a ‘ I have to tell everyone about it’ or even my friends .


It's often hard to find a restaurant that puts equal care into their veg or vegan dishes as their meat dishes–that's not the case at Simply Wholesome. My first time eating at Simply Wholesome was at 8pm on a Friday. It was quite busy, but vibrant would be a better word: lots of people, friendly conversations, and nice music playing.

I waited in line for a few minutes to place my order of blackened tofu, with plantains and peas and rice on the side. The person at the counter confirmed that everything I ordered was vegan. I browsed the impeccably clean market joining the restaurant while I waited, and my food was brought to me after about 15 minutes.

What an appealing plate! The tofu slices were huge and the veggies looked bright and fresh. Some of the plantains were more "rare" while others "well done"–a nice mix.

Everything tasted as great as it looked. Tofu can be tricky to make interesting, but the chefs here succeeded with great spicing and perfect grilling. The spinach had a good amount of mushrooms mixed in, plus a weapons-grade dose of garlic. Steamed veggies weren't mushy at all. The peas and rice was a bit oversalted, but still had complex flavor. And the plantains... Perfection.

I also received great service from the staff. Despite how busy it was, two different people came to check on me during my meal. I was a newcomer, but it seemed they knew everyone else by name, adding to the friendly vibe.

Simply Wholesome could also be named Simply Delicious. It's not inexpensive but I felt I got what I paid for: healthy food prepared with care, and a full belly. I will certainly go back to try their other vegan options, plus enjoy the energetic atmosphere and service. Thank you Simply Wholesome!


I am normally happy with the service here. However today i was disappointed. The girl that was taking my order got distracted when she was sending a text message on her phone and had my order to go when i wanted to eat at the restaurant. If the owner or manager is reading this review phones should be prohibited. It's very ghetto and unprofessional to take someone's order at the same time you are sending a text.


Rainbow Blast n Veggie Jamaican Pies are my favorite. I have ordered (take out) the Hawaiian tacos (believe that's what they're called) n the burrito with veggie patty. Burrito is dry, would prefer a wet burrito. Tacos (2) with salad they're delicious, the dressing is never what I order. Tacos n salad should be in a container that separates one from the other. Which I prefer. Friendly environment n atmosphere. Always busy which is a good thing.


The Place is a STAPLE of LA, and it shows from the moment you enter the parking lot until the time you leave, it just feels good. The people are friendly even during lunch rush hour (which can test alot of people) but they do it all with phone calls, pick up orders, and face to face customer service. K-U-D-O-S. Simply Wholesome is a one stop shop for your Vitamins, Herbs, Skin care, and any other body mind & soul care and the other side is a restaurant with some of the most richest and amazing smoothies to jamaican patties, to sandwiches. Its all amazing here honestly, I don't have a complaint in the world besides I wish it was 24hrs but honestly ... I would spend way too much money there then


You gotta make this place your Sunday ritual after church.

They have dope live performances and the food is indeed simply wholesome. I buy my face wash and charcoal to whiten my teeth here. And it’s also a black owned store you get a wealth of knowledge here and when I saw the place on Insecure I screamed.

Also, try their pineapple ginger tonic, it’s really good and healthy and refreshing. The food is really good. Really really good!


Visited first time with my family on Sunday. The ambience is lovely. The outside sitting area was hot, the inside a bit hotter the ceiling fan didnt help much. I ordered grilled salmon, brown rice and slaw. I will give the salmon a 7/10. The brown rice didnt have no taste. I felt it could have been season a little. My husband ordered the patties he said it needed a little more filling was only getting to much crust. For our toddler he had the chicken bites he liked it and my husband. Overall it was cool experience. Would probably try their smoothies next time and something else from the menu. They also have a store inside with natural and healthy items. The customer service was great and they ensured to keep the place clean. Will visit another time.


This is definitely one of my favorite places to go. Be it a quick smoothie or Jamaican pie or a nice lunch or a full dinner. The variety is great and I always have to take a dessert with me. In addtion to a great food the market store and book collection is there for you too.


From the first moment you enter that restaurant the waiters give you a pleasant feeling. Very friendly waiters, it is a good place to go out with buddies or with your date. heavenly meals, experienced chief cook and stuff, competitive pay and courteous service. Warmly recommended.


This is a great place to visit, especially for lunch.

The place is very clean with lots of tables and chairs to accommodate people.


We only go here to buy patties as the rest of food options don’t seem Jamaican. 1 star off because every once in a while they pack the wrong patty which is the worst feeling when you bite into something you don’t eat after you have left a restaurant.


Tasty home-style Caribbean and health foods, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. The spinach patty was delicious and smoothies looked great. Recommend!


Went there for the first time today. Prices were pretty good and love supporting black businesses. However I bought a healing crystal from there. I was charged for it and it wasn’t until I got home (I live 15 miles away) that I realized he didn’t even put it in the bag...


What a wonderful place! We loved the music/ vibe! I highly recommend going here and trying the Caribbean Enchiladas! Great service even when it is busy!


This is my go to spot in Hollywood good food for a great price I love it I i recommend everyone to try this place out their chicken shwarma sand which is my absolute favorite
