Little place with good selection
Posted on 01 / 30 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my LifeFood Organic review.
My friend and I were on our way to the Golden Bridge Yoga studio for a workshop. We looked at HappyCow maps and noticed that this place was just nearby, so we came for lunch beforehand.
LifeFood Organic is a raw cafe, mostly takeout kind of place. There are 2 small areas with tables for seating. All the food is already prepared and packaged and stored in refrigerators for choosing. There is a good variety including several desserts, various salads, and a couple sandwiches - though the sandwich bread is not raw, it's sprouted bread. There is a separate fridge with all sorts of smoothies and beverages.
My friend and I shared the chili, a wild black rice salad, a kelp noodle salad, plus a lemon poppy seed cake (made with almond meal), and a berry tart/pie. Every is raw and served cold. I enjoyed everything, especially the wild rice salad and the kelp noodle salad. My friend liked the lemon poppy seed cake. The chili was pretty good, too.
My only complaint would be that the portions are a bit small for the price. However, I understand that the location is very central and the rent is probably expense. The food is organic and well prepared, so it's definitely worth the try. I'm glad I did and would definitely return to try the other stuff.
good variety, nice flavors, biodegradable packaging
