I enjoy eating at Life Alive. The restaurant has a basic set of dishes that you can then customize the heck out of. The indoor seating allows you to get your own pitcher of water and bring it to the table. There are also some books you can browse up in the small elevated area where there is a couch... More

Give me a sandwich or embellished salad or small entree for lunch, and I'm happy. I was not happy. The selections are few, nearly all have ginger or kale or both, and pricey. I was starving when we arrived. My sandwich was horrible, altho the smoothie was okay. Young staff, serves attractive plates, venue is cute, good service, and sharing... More

A fun place to visit. Sit down inside or out, alone or with friends and enjoy a healthy, delicious meal. The bowls filled with grains and veggies are topped with amazingly delicious and unique dressings/sauces. Even the small size is filling, but everything tastes so good, you might wish you had ordered a large just so you could keep eating.... More

Seven of us had lunch at Life Alive in December 2016. I loved the quirky menu and had a hard time choosing (I wanted everything!). Most in the party ordered the batchelor's wrap (or similar nam) and they all liked it. I can't remember what I ordered but it was delicious. The only criticism is that it took a long... More

What an amazing atmosphere and healthy food. I had a bowl with the side of avocado and red lentil hummus with gluten free sauce. Portion was big and food was delicious. Will be coming back!

Fresh ingredients, interesting dressings, healthy food, and great place for vegetarians and Vegans. You can't go wrong with any of their bowl options. We like the Swamy, Green goddess, and the Elvis Alive smoothie is also really good as a desert.
