We wanted to pick up some food to bring to friends so we stopped by Lemonade. We bought 2 sandwiches and 3 different salads. Everything was DELISH! Great flavors and reasonable prices. Highly recommend!

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

One in our group was a vegetarian and wanted to try Lemonade. It's cafeteria style - you move down a line and tell the server what you want. There were lots of interesting looking choices. We tried a few of the offerings and weren't really impressed. The food was pretty bland and quite expensive for what you get.

It was my first time visiting a lemonade and I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the selection that they had. It was precise and not overloaded with too many options. I recall having the red quinoa and the avocado and tomato salad. Such an amazing and graceful flavors that were infused especially the red quinoa. Of course because the... More

Very delicious and fresh. Cafeteria style and loads of options. Not too heavy. Terrific and funky lemonade options. In Abbot Kinney so neat shopping nearby.

I have been to three locations of Lemonade and have been happy with all of them. Patrons can view the food when they pass through a line and their food is delivered to their table within a very reasonable time. Every item is fresh and delicious.

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.
