Good, quick meal

Lemonade is fast becoming my favorite place for a quick meal. I won't say fast food, because it's much better than that, but everything is already prepared and you choose it kind of cafeteria style. The salads are unique and delicious and of course you have to get one of the specialty lemonades!

I used to like this place as it had a lot of vegetarian options but got terrible food poisoning the last time I went there so no more Lemonade for me! :(

This place is a find! Really interesting salads and proteins. We had salmon with beet and melon salad, about $10, salmon filled avocado with butternut squash salad, about $9, and a Rosemary chicken/mixed greens salad about $8. Great price and they had 12 varieties of lemonade including a sugar free one. Lovely. Will definitely return. The ordering process almost cafeteria... More

I was surprised at how good this food was. Healthy, reasonable prices. Now one of my new regular lunch restaurants. Take good care of yourself - eat there.

Love the fact that you don't have to wait for food to be prepared, because it's already made. Also love how the menus change every few months. Every dish I've had, has been fresh and flavorful.

We looked forward to visiting Lemonade on a recent California trip and found the food excellent! All the entrees and chili we ordered was fresh and delicious. The one drawback was they bifurcated our order and some of the main meals came out after some were finished eating. Otherwise it was an enjoyable experience.

Lemonade is a pretty cool concept, cafeteria-style with an emphasis on fresh flavorful ingredients, great for weekend lunch. This place is definitely vegan friendly as they have many salad items to choose from, but they also have chicken meatballs, chilli, curried chicken salad, etc. Best to ask for to go box you get more than having them put it on...

Lemonade is in the heart of Pasadena just half a block south of Colorado Boulevard. This small and cozy restaurant is surrounded by medium sized buildings and the fast paced metropolis. So I sat down with my date and we tried three of their salads and one of their soups and it was all outstanding. I must say it was... More

Lemonade has a cafeteria style service system that has the potential to work quickly. Choose your salad, then sandwich, braise, or soup. The food is consistent, but the service can be very slow if there are people who don't know the system in line. Lately, I have noticed there has only been 1 cashier working and the line is out...

I love Lemonade. They have so many yummy salads and sides and is perfect for vegans and non vegans. Soups are usually vegan so check with them. Fast, quick, yummy, convenient, so many options. I love it.
