There are so many great salads to choose from. It's hard to narrow it down. I think it would be better if you could look at all the stuff first, before you have to start deciding. I wish more of the hot food was vegetarian. I had some mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. Topped off with the blueberry-mint lemonade.... More

I've only ever been to this one location. Still though I love this place. Eating all these little salads is my favorite thing.

Stopped in on a warm afternoon to a very happy and friendly staff, and proceeded to eat a delicious cookie with a fantastic lemonade. Just went with the Arnold Palmer, but the varieties looked amazing too. Definitely recommended for baked good and drinks...the food looked awesome though!

I'm not a foodie and usually enjoy most food, but this place did not seem very good to me. It wasn't bad, but just not as good as I expected from reviews. I came with a friend who wanted to try it out. It was very crowded, looking like a typical hipster joint that is currently trending on yelp. I... More

The eclectic offerings at Lemonade wowed me. The unique pairing of fresh herbs with local produce is a score. I'd go once a week if I lived close by. We had a carrot with chills & anise seed; curried cucumber; the best chicken pot pie I've ever tasted; lentils with lime, feta, and other things that made it pop with... More

This restaurant has many delicious sides, variety of lemonades, sandwiches, and desserts. I think 9.50 is a bit much for a sandwich but you can't beat the quality. Parking is free in the huge open lots behind this and the surrounding businesses.

There will be a line, but it moves quickly and the food is worth it. I haven't found food this flavorful and fresh anywhere else in the area, so I will stand in line for it. Spicy jerk chicken, curried vegetables, real lemonade, too many good things to list!

Worth the walk from Paseo Colorado, rather expensive but definitely worth eating here It is similar to the kinds of food you'd find at a Whole Foods market The staff all know what's good and were really kind and patient with us figuring out their menu, it really made our experience there

12.7.2013 - a rainy Saturday afternoon. The bright lemon yellow, lime green and white patio furniture caught our eyes. It looked so cheerful, contemporary. Hmm.. perhaps it was just my imagination but I suddenly felt a sharp pang of hunger triggered by that color scheme. Peering through the plate glass window, we observed a sizable lunch crowd milling about in... More

I was thrilled when Lemonade opened a branch in Pasadena. Everyone I bring there is immediately a fan. It is set up cafeteria style, which makes it perfect for ordering as much or as little as one wants. First there is an amazing array of sides - salads and vegetables to die for. All are made with an interesting and... More
