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

They had a very nice selection for vegan stuff which was great for me. Food was good for a reasonable price. Carnivore friend enjoyed it as well.

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.

This place was very cool for anyone who loves fresh food and fresh lemonade. The various flavors of lemonade were refreshing as the ingredients were savory. You can mix flavors of your choice as well. Better than Starbucks drinks and a little cheaper.

I call it a fast food because it is a self service restaurant but obviously the quality of what you get served is miles away from fast food. We had the choice of at least 12 different salads and veggies and 6 different meats. The meats are served directly from heavy cooking pots and area absolutely delicious. You can take... More

I've eaten here numerous times. The food is very cleverly done. It's served cafeteria style. It's really healthy and very tasty.

Great range of salads containing really interesting ingredients. Tonight the standout dish was the truffled heritage carrots - outstanding. Loved the Mac and cheese. Cucumber and mint lemonade fabulous. Was a bit confusing on arrival because we had never been here before. Basically you choose as many serves of salad as you wish and/or a sandwich and/or meat/fish and/or one... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
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.
