Enjoyed a Seductress wrap and a smoothie while visiting Life Alive. Everything was fresh and delicious. It felt good knowing that everything I was eating was good for my body - the new comfort food!

For all of our hipsterness, San Francisco dies not have this. The closest is probably Herbivore in NOPA and it is not LA. And there's Dharma's Restaurant in Capitola which is great in its own right but quite different. LA has their vegan s*** together. I've eaten there enough, perhaps every 4-6 months I travel to or through Boston, that... More

Another great find in Cambridge where the healthy meet up to grab truly organic dishes. The food is delicious and I felt a good portion for what it cost to serve and maintain a organic food restaurant in cambridge Mas. Stop in if you are in town you wont be disappointed.

A friend recommended coming here, and I was a bit nervous/skeptical, since I'm not a vegan or vegetarian and wasn't sure if I'd like it. Got a salad that blew my socks off. Friendly and helpful staff made the experience even better. Definitely a place that's on my list to come to again - and soon.

I was just passing by, looking for eat something light and healthy (something that is really hard to do in the US). Life alive is an awesome place, the environment is very young and alternative with very good vegetarian food, drinks and very nice people. I definitely recommend the place and the grilled wrap "The romantic". And it has internet... More

This place is just amazing, I would give it six stars :) .. the food is just sooo good. Probably one of the best vegetarian dishes ever. The whole concept is an oasis to organic and healthy food. If you are a foodie, this place is a must! ..

We enjoy the highly unami all-vegetarian fare of Life Alive. At first I thought they would never last with such a corny name, but many people line up to eat in or take out. The food is delicious and satisfying. I just wish that they could keep up the friendly level of service they had in 2011. Sometimes the staff... More

21st century vegans flock to this Cambridge landmark for kale, tofu & a wide range of veggies forged into bowls, wraps, and salads. Also featured are smoothies, soups, and local beer. A number of tasty sauces serve as spreads & salad dressings.

Went there thanks to the many recommendations of locals and weren't disappointed! We arrived at 21h30 and the place was packed and a million degrees! Ordered two different rice bowls and shared them both in the park across the street thanks to the heat! Great vegetarian food and pretty good bang for your buck
