Sooooooooooo good!

We were traveling from Kentucky to Folly Beach and wanted to eat some really healthy food. We searched online and were lead to The Good Life Cafe in Columbia, South Carolina by the excellent reviews. This is fresh food at its best. Raw, vegan and so flavorful. We shared a combination plate of... read more

I had the tofu scramble with soy sage and biscuit. Then my carnivore friends joined me, so I told them I hadn't eaten yet, then I ordered the waffle. Thank you nice waitress for playing along. I came back later and ordered a salad to go. SOOOO GOOOD! I would have died in that meat eating town without this place.

My friend has celiac and so we gave this place a try. She was so excited since she had an entire menu to choose from. We ordered two appetizers plus an entree thinking I would leave hungry, being the red meat eater I am. I was wrong. Portions were good and filling. Every single bite was flavorful.

It's very hard to find good, REAL vegan food on our travels throughout the south. Far too many places offer a freezer-burned soy burger and call it "dinner". So this place was just a healthy food palace in a sea of buttered and bacon-ed everything along our trip. The staff is super-friendly, and the food was delicious. The portions are... More

I love Good Life! I would eat here everyday if I could afford it. Everything is tasty and fresh and healthy! I always leave feeling satisfied, but not heavy or sleepy like elsewhere. I love the kale salad, the thai "noodles" and the beet salad.

I've been here 3 times now and each time the food has been exceptional. Everything is so fresh and full of flavor. For anyone who is skeptical of trying this place - don't have any hesitation. It is amazing what they can do with nuts and other natural ingredients to make you think you are eating cheese or other fatty... More
