Oasis for Clean eating Foodies in Lowell

I walked in and was warmly welcomed, took in the warm atmosphere and décor which is in essence a coffee shop feel with a 'Dreams Come True' and 'Live Life to the Fullest' vibe.

Life Alive has a funky boho vibe. It's a throw back to an earlier less complicated time. That's how the food is too - less complicated - straight stuff. No fillers, additatives, nothing unnatural! It's delicious vegetarian food even a carnivore might enjoy. Nicely put together combos - great flavor! Lines to order are lengthy - relax, look around &... More

I'm a vegan and was delighted to find this place on the way home from New Hampshire. The place has an almost 60's vibe; the staff is friendly and helpful; and the food is delicious. We had The Warrior and the Udon Miso Masterful, both filling and different. My only complaint is that the service is very slow.

Sometimes I get a salad for myself as well. The place has an extensive choice of vegetarian salads, and they're very accommodating in making them with a different dressing than the one listed for a particular combination of veggies. My wife insists on fresh veggies and has always been satisfied with the

All of the menu choices are healthy and tasty (usually mutually exclusive). If you're looking for a nice local place to stop, this is the place. We have been coming for years. The smoothies are excellent as is the atmosphere.

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. I got the Udon Miso Masterful and my wife got the demi Sufi Poet salad. Everything was very fresh and the greens crisp in her salad, and my soup was very good, chocked full of mushrooms and kale and noodles. Prices are not bad for the fresh ingredients you get and...

It was a beautiful Sunday and we got one of the few tables outside which was quite pleasant. Inside is quite cluttered. Have a lengthy menu of salads, wraps, grain based dishes. The first time can be quite hard to figure out what is what. We had a explorer salad bowl with homemade hummus and veggies and a goddess bowl... More

I've been to the Life Alives in Salem and Cambridge many times. This was my first time at the Lowell one. The food took forever to be served. 30 minutes to be precise. That is an insane amount for a place that has much of it pre-cooked. When the food arrived, there was so much sauce on it I couldn't... More

I am not much a vegan but this place was really good. I like that they have a patio area where you can eat outside. I liked the decor and ambience of the place. Great place to hang with friends or for lunch.
