This is always a favorite spot, whether you have the pickiest vegetarian or healthy eater, want a good cup of coffee & a yummy dessert or have grumbling tweens or college age boys to fil up you will find something to please everyone. It isn't inexpensive but it's fresh and delicious. I love their selection of interesting salads...kale, shaved Brussels... More

We stopped in for a cool drink and a snack. The regular lemonade was fantastic. The salted caramel macaroons were large and delicious. It was a nice and clean place to rest from the heat.

Just a short walk inland from the boardwalk is Lemonade. Great selection of dishes provided in generous portions by friendly staff as you pass down the line with you tray. Very fresh food and reasonable prices.

I think you could call the restaurant concept modern-cafeteria style. It’s basically setup like a cafeteria but with way more interesting food. The variety of the food was cool, but I thought the food was just okay. For the first time through it was hard to figure everything out, with so many options, so many people and nothing really explaining... More

This is a great find, we were recommend by our host. The buffet style food is fresh and tasty with lots of options. Doesn't break the bank either. Recommend

Lemonade is a life saver for anyone who wants quick, healthy food in the Venice / Abbot Kinney neighbourhood. It is cafeteria style but after being stuck in expensive sub par restaurants demanding 20% tips for waiting all over Los Angeles that was also a God send for us. You just grab a tray and the friendly and knowledgeable staff... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
