One of the best places I have ever eaten. Different food made of vegetables, nuts, even meat eaters so much love it. Big line, which tells us that people really love it. Their coffee made of nont coffee beans but something else - not really good, but If somebody needs to stop drinking coffee - that is possible temporary substitution.... More

I love the concept of this place: organic and veggie. The atmosphere and seating areas are really neat as well. I enjoyed my food though there was too much of the sauce which overwhelmed the flavors of anything else.

Good vegan food. Counter service ordering. Would be better with regular table service. Space was a bit cramped.

Life Alive is one of my favorite places to eat! Its health-conscious food that I actually crave! I find the service to always be excellent and I have never had a bad experience here. I usually go with the emperor and sometimes indulge in one of their smoothies.

We loved this place, have eaten here often since it opened. However, tonight was a real disappointment. The bowl I requested without rice arrived 3/4 full of rice. And it was drenched -- I mean drowning -- in dressing. The vegetables, usually SO flavorful and the reason we return to Life Alive again and again, tasted like nothing. Because my... More

We tried this place at their Cambridge location. They do have fantastic offerings for vegetarian/vegans. This place is quite popular in the area. So,be prepared for a wait even to order. Great for take-out though. Location : The location was central. Very close from the T station. We visited this place for lunch on Saturday. But the place is small.... More

Went there today with someone else. We started with a salad and a wrap and ended up buying a second salad and a second wrap because they were really good and we were really hungry. There are a lot of options and it's all vegetarian.

Love it here! I came here on a Sunday night before close and there was a long line... Know why? Because the food is just amazing. Fresh, clean and full of flavor. I got the adventurer salad (demi) and the sofi poet wrap and it was more than enough food. Even though this place is a 20 min drive for... More
