“Change the street address to Georgia Avenue, and”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

change the name to their new one (I forgot it), and go. Truly delicious soul vegan food, but the decor brings it down a bit. I am hoping for a bit more lightness in that department while they are renovating, rather than the heaviness of the brown vinyl tablecloths and is that vinyl or leather couches? The brown walls too. So awful!

For vegans, it is a haven, but for raw foodists, only a small portion can you eat. Still, give in and get some tofu a la king and some marinated greens or green beans and you can get a delicious meal for about $10. They were out of wheatgrass, but they had lots of carrots for carrot juice. There is no such thing as dehydration here, but neither is it anywhere else except Elizabeth's Gone Raw. They do know their business and even know what you are talking about if you say you want raw only. Other places wonder if you mean raw meat or sushi.

“One of the best places I've ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I was blown away by the selections of healthy, tasty food. The staff was very friendly and offered lots of samples. Everything tasted great, and I loved that it was a co-op. This place makes me want to move permanently to DC. I can't wait to come back!

“Great Vegan Destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

The sheer volume of home cooked Vegan options at this restaurant makes this a very memorable and unique dining experience. The soul food, all served from deli cases at the rear of the restaurant, was delicious, but very salty for my taste. The dining area was comfortable and quite large. If you are a Vegan and traveling to the DC area, do not miss the opportunity to eat at Everlasting Life. Even the non-Vegans will love it too!

“Delightful and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I really enjoy the selection of food at this restaurant. The ginger spiced tofu that is available on Sunday is delish. I always get the vinaigrette kale that is available every day, imlove the slight sweetness of the vinaigrette. The soy cream is so good, my heart just skipped a beat thinking about it!!

I was looking for another vegan restaurant on the same street and happened upon this gem. Don't forget to pick up one of their awesome smoothies when you are there.

“Wonderful surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant looking for something gluten free. We tried it out and loved it. Their ice cream was awesome. And, the dishes we're great. A few where a bit salty but still wonderful. I wish there was something like this in San Jose, CA.
