Food is organic and very good. Staff is always friendly. Don't expect a super quick order as food is prepared after order. Worth the small wait.

Regarding the food, I enjoyed my first visit here. I had the tofu tacos and this amazing green cucumber drink, although the drink did not arrive with any garnishes like the photo on the Lyfe website show. The roasted Brussels sprouts are good, and the sweet potato fries are too, although they could be crispier. The service seems a little... More

Decent food for a fast(er) food place, lots of options, healthy to the nines, but all in all pretty bland and monochromatic -- except of course for the snazzily misspelled name. Nothing particularly special.

Inclusive menu for a family with widely divergent food restrictions and tastes. Everything tastes wonderful except the veggie burger which was meh.

I went here for a quick and healthy lunch and this is exactly what I got. For "fast" food, this was great. I enjoyed the fish taco which tasted fresh. I would definitely go here often if I lived in the area. They had a great iced tea as well. I was also nice that they had a water bar.... More

Lyfe kitchen provides typical California options with separate menus for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free diets. Free wifi and a pleasant seating area make this a great spot to sit and do work or relax with friends and family. High prices if you're on a student budget but reasonable considering the atmosphere and quality of the food?

I'd rate it higher than average but not in the very good category. I liked the unconventional approach, relaxed atmosphere, the location is good, but the food is just "ok". Maybe visiting on Mothers Day wasn't the best day for our introductory visit ?

This was all new to us. Order at the till and service is quick. Excellent innovative and healthy menu at extremely competitive prices. It fills a real gap for healthy fast food.

Really fresh food, and a great concept, but prices are too high (even for Palo Alto!). There are lots of better choices.

I like that an entire dish with complex flavors can be only 600 calories. Nice folks at the counter, too.
