SFU student - and I am cheap, but I am sick of bad food!
The food here is good (good enough to write about it) and i like Nature's Garden atmosphere. The place feels like your grandma's house and it is relaxing when the weather is cloudy and raining (as it always is at SFU).
Their coffee is great - the best on campus. However, with all the organic food stuffs it can get on the pricier side - I think I pay about $2 more for a sandwich than I should - but the quality is better than most places. I am not big on organic food so I don't like paying up for it. But the food is high quality - you can tell.
Only bad experience was a dry muffin - I didn't complain, but they may have replaced it if I asked them to.
Over all - worth a try.
Positives: Food is fresh, Organic (if that means something to you), Very good coffee.
Negatives: Value - not the best.

Decided to try this place out - because I was sick of subs and cheap sushi.
Have to admit though that it is pretty bad value for what you get. Decent portion sizes (no complaints of that here), food is bland, and the vegetable chicken platter had stringy chicken. It wasn't horrible - just not good enough for the price.
Positives - nice place, good service. Only place on campus to get beer on tap that isn't flat.
Negatives - average food, not great value.
I've only been once and I'll give it another try.

SFU student here - what i have always hated is that the food on the hill is either cheap and bad or expensive and average. How many subs can one man eat?
I gave Himalayan Peak a try and it is pretty good (good enough to get me to write about it here) - very good indian food and good food in general. It is actually good value too. Their lunch buffet is better than most buffets I have eaten at and costs about $10 to take out - not bad (I am using a foot long sub as a comparison tool). Only complaint, Butter chicken is only on Wednesdays and Mondays in the buffet.
When I really want to eat on the cheap they have a value menu between $5 to $7. The Naan wich tandoori chicken sandwich is awesome!!! A must try. Beer is cheap too - about $3 and change for bottles.
Down side: TV is small for watching games, no draft beer.
Up side: Food is awesome and cheap. Staff is friendly and don't pressure you if you just want to sit and have a beer and watch tv.
More places like this are need on campus.
