RFD has the best tofu scramble I've ever tasted. Perfect texture and seasoning. Love both the "sausage" and avocado & cheese. Tasty hash browns, too. Great atmosphere. Close to the 3rd Street prom. Would def recommend!

If you didn't come looking for a healthy meal, you'd be bowled over at what a different world it is - a top-tier team of foodies creating thoughtful dishes and meals that are as healthy as possible. It all makes perfect sense in Los Angeles (and California in general), but it's rare to find this kind of vim for healthy... More

The vegan options were amazing and surprising. It will please everyone. You dont have to be a vegan to enjoy this place. Wow. Want to come back for brunch. Had a salad, and tasted one of their smoothies. Try it!

The menu was unique, especially to one that does not frequent health food style restaurants. The food was not only healthy, but very flavorful as well.

this place came highly recommended but just ok IMO. Disappointed by milkshake (too runny) but other food ok.

Went there this week and I am in love. I follow a pretty strict paleo diet and they had a lot to choose from for my grain, sugar, dairy & legume free diet! I got the Kung pow which was amazing... I don't eat rice so they subbed for more veggies with my dish! Would go back in a heartbeat... More

The server was excellent. He was genuinely interested in making meal recommendations. I wish I could remember his name! We finally decided on brunch. We both had the AVA B ‘N’ CHEEZ brunch scramble. The portion was large and filling. The flavors complimented each other well. If I wasn't on vacation, I would have taken some of it home. Since... More

I am not a vegan myself, but I was experimenting with it for a little while, along with no gluten, so my LA native friends took me here. I was pleasantly surprised, they even had gluten-free beers on tap, non-dairy based "cheeses" and other great roasted options. Was a large, healthy meal that didn't make me feel too full afterwards.

We happened upon Real Food Daily as we were walking down to the beach in Santa Monica. I had heard about it and was intending to go on one of our trips down to L.A., but the Universe sent us here unexpectedly and it was a pleasant surprize. I always seek out interesting vegetarian restaurants (in this case, Vegan), when... More

I really love RFD's food, but I've had to stop eating there because of the price. If you have $100 to drop, they do have excellent food that you can't tell is vegan. I think it all must be made out of gold though. The decor reminds me of a cafeteria - service average. Thinking about the food makes me... More
