Enjoyed this casual lunch spot

I had a couple really good sides, or portions they call them, and an excellent sandwich. The options and ordering style is a little overwhelming on the first visit, but i would assume after that it is much easier. I would for sure repeat for a quick lunch if I am in the area again. Nice little... read more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2015 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

We go here at least once a month. There is always a surprising combination of dishes. The one issue I have is that the cafeteria line prevents you from getting a good idea what you might order, so the line is a little chaotic and slow when there are even a few extra customers. They publish a cookbook too and... More

I love the idea of creative salad options and this place had a lot of offerings. The problem is that the flavor and freshness is just not there. Probably on par with the deli salad section of a cheap grocery store chain. The best thing I tried there was a juice blend with blueberry in it from the juice machines.... More

I've eaten at Lemonade a few times. I just don't get it. This place seems quite popular but I find it awkward and frustrating. The customer flow is terrible. It's sort of cafeteria style, but the layout of foods makes it very awkward and there is no menu to tell you what is available. As you walk along the line,... More

What an amazing place! If I lived near a Lemonade, I'd probably eat there several times a week. I could even be a vegetarian...well, maybe not. Really enjoyed a salad of heirloon tomatoes, persian melon, and peppers. Also edamame salad, and kale-white bean soup. P.S. Thewy do have meat.

As a brazilian girl who appreciates a great hot meal with chicken or meat and a great juice, Lemonade was a perfect place for me. They serve different kinds of salads, rice and meat. They have different kinds of delicious lemonades as well. I recommend it for both lunch and dinner. You'll never regret.

I went to the store in MOCA in downtown LA. The food was tasty and well-prepared. The seating was not very comfortable and the prices were a bit too much. I would go when i am downtown for the museum or jury duty. I would not go locally as there are places with more comfortable ambiance

Big selection of salads that are colorful and delicious. I love the one with watermelon radishes and ahi tuna. Two scoops of salads is more than enough for me, an additional third would be perfect for my next meal. I also love their chicken and apple with an indian twist--I forgot the name. For drinks, I love the cucumber mint... More

nice place. Fresh foods and wide selection of vegetables, soups. Less varied offer of meats and fish. When I went there was a long line mainly due to the slowness of the service. The queues (it is a self service) are poorly organized. Very noisy.
