3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 NEW

I went in for my usual Powerbowl and something seemed different. Different taste with different ingredients (are those nuts in there now?) and a puddle of oil at the bottom when I finished. Gave me a stomach ache for the first time eating at LL. I'm thinking new owners or a new cook or something has changed? I hope not.

NO NO NO! ownership or management hasn't changed! We're still the same great and caring people who love what they do. We try very hard to hit 100% all the time, but sometimes we fall short, and this was one of them. We're very sorry:( Please know we are very consistent and our food has won many hearts and stomachs,... More

Went to Lettuce for lunch and had the OH MY GOSH grilled cheese and Caesar salad. It was great! A casual diner where you order your food at the counter and they bring it out to you. I would go back without hesitation even though it is a 25 minute drive.

I come here a lot! If you are looking for a casual friendly environment with fantastic food Lettuce Love is where it's at! I'm slowly eating my way through their menu. Most recently I had the Huevos Ranchero and it was FANTASTIC with the slightest amount of kick! I could only eat 1/2 but I packed the rest up to... More

This was my second time here. First time a few months ago with my daughter and yesterday for lunch with both daughters. Both times the food was excellent! Yesterday our lunches were a portobello mushroom sandwich, a grilled cheese sandwich and the Chana masala bowl. All 3 were delicious. The staff are very upbeat. Yesterday we sat on the patio....

Thank you for your great review.

Everything was great from the moment I walked in. The staff was wonderful, knowledgeable and you could tell the guy working loved his job. The food was amazing, will definitely being going back. It was a little expensive but definitely worth it.

The meal we had was okay. I felt that the flavours were one-dimensional and got boring after a few bites. It was rice... chickpeas.... and some curry sauce (though I did like that it was spicy). The avocado wasn't even ripe... so couldn't eat that. Basically, overpriced for some very basic ingredients. The beer was warm... and the staff was... More

Hello, I'm sorry you didn't have a really great experience with us. We do our very best to "wow" every single customer that walks in our door, but this time we didn't, our apologies. We are in the midst of training new kitchen staff and it seems your meal wasn't as well prepared as it should, we are very sorry.... More

First of all I want to thank the owner who personally came over to our table to ask how the food was. That is a fantastic customer service skill plus the other staff members kept smiling and being extra helpful which is delightful. The food was healthy and nutritious.

My daughter and I had heard of Lettuce Love Cafe some months ago and finally decided to try it for lunch today and can't wait to return! Our meals were excellent - fresh, real food, free of all the hidden unhealthy ingredients that other restaurants add to make the food "taste good", but upset my stomach. We are not vegan,... More

I do not know another restaurant that compares to Lettuce Love. Please let me know if you do! I am the type who very rarely eats out because the food offered by restaurants is pretty much never healthy, gluten-free, OR vegan. Never mind all three. Lettuce Love has a few mouth-watering dishes including their Tomato Protein Soup, Happy Buddha Bowl,... More
