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.

We really enjoyed the variety and taste. The lemonade was really refreshing too. It is a popular place with the locals which is a good sign. Worth a visit.

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
