A super array of many unusual salads, sandwiches, hot entries!

This is a cafeteria / buffet style restaurant--healthy style! One of my favorites for a quick meal...good quality...good prices + an amazing variety of choices!

Sublime presentation and above-delicious food! If you adore vegetables, plain or fancy,drop in here! There are other items of course- sandwiches, soups, salads, etc. as well as adorable looking desserts. Many fun lemonade drink options. Prices are very fair for the excellent quality of the food. Casual atmosphere - you order at the counter- and can eat-in or take out.... More

The food was so good, so much variety, honestly one of my top meals in the U S. I did spend about 10 minutes looking over all the options before I ordered. Thought it was a bit pricey, but it was worth the money. My daughter had the beef in red miso, then my son and husband came back for... More

There were so many options, and they were delicious. That's the essential. We especially liked that you could get very small amounts from several different things, and that almost all of them were superb. However, it is cafeteria-style, so there's that.

We got out of the water and wanted to eat. After searching around for a while we settled on Lemonade. I had gotten pretty hungry by this point so the cafeteria style service was quick and efficient. But I wouldnt call the food cafeteria food in any way. Fresh and gourmet with great service and helpful sample testers for any... More

Great salad selection. Hearty braises and stews. Bite size cupcakes. Good place for a quick lunch. A modern take on the cafeteria.

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
