I went there for a shake. It tasted too healthy to have and actual taste. It's 100% vegetarian, so if you need your daily dose of animal-origin food, just don't get in there. Yes, sorry, real cow-milk and I go way back.

However, the few eateries we wanted to check out had lines out the door, I was too hungry to wait so we ducked into the first less-crowded spot we could find and found ourselves at Life Alive. So very glad... More

Not only did eating here give me a break from my poor food choices on vacation, but it tasted better then anything I ever expected. I ate here multiple times too. I wish I could cook at home like this. It was a bit pricey though.

I stumbled across this place when visiting Salem and could tell by the queue how great it would be. I am not vegetarian but found the lunch healthy and tasty with organic ingredients. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a healthy alternative in Salem.

Life Alive serves meals based on locally obtained produce and has a theme of healthy and happy. Meals are heavy with greens, legumes, veggies, etc. Large servings are tasty and the atmosphere is very laid back. It is a great place to go for a nice lunch or laid-back dinner. I enjoy getting my own water in Bell jars, and... More
