I love to come to this restaurant for lunch and sit outside on the patio. The food is always fresh and the salads are unusual and great. We tried the sandwiches before, and they are also very good. They could use a little more selection of beers, but try their fresh lemonade, it's great.

Seriously, my wife and I are from Portland, Oregon and we ate here after taking our daughter down to LMU and it was amazing. At one point, we both looked at each other and said we need to open one of these back home. Unfortunately, they're staying local for now!!!!

Great spots for casual dining. Gluten free bread used is from Rising Heart bakery in Culver City and it's excellent if that's the way you go. Banh mi is as tasty as any I've had in the city but whatever I've had is excellent .

This is the second time I've been here and the ordering process is still the same...overwhelming and confusing. You are immediately asked by an employee if you have been here before and, if you say no, you are exposed to a non-stop litany of instructions. Then you have to go to a counter to pay. You are then given a... More

Great spot to grab amazing salads or sandwiches. Fresh, local, with plenty of options. Loved the: pork belly banh mi, not so fried chicken, and the steak banh mi. Sides wise, the almond pasta and beet salad were my favorites. The curried cous cous was decent, but not my cup of tea. Try them all for free! Homemade sodas are... More

This place is an old reliable ( being here few years now) although chain still expanding elsewhere. Sandwiches and Salads are their forte. did not care for their soup much. Get quinoa curry salads and you will get addicted. Savory and freshly prepared all around everything on the menu.

We come here once a week .. everything is made with fresh, quality ingredients. The sandwiches are amazing ... the sides are the best ... just ask for a sample so that you get the one that you will enjoy best. I love the pasta salad! The Study of Heat sandwich is my fave! The seating is inside as well... More

We met here after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We stood in a short line to order our entrees. We told the server it was our first time and we were escorted through the kitchen and to the cash registers. We were told that we could request a sample or two as you pass by the grill cooks....

I hate healthy food restaurants. But MF has great food that just happens to also be good for you (most of it at least). The line can get long, but it moves fast and the staff are great. Try their seasonal salads, always a treat. Now, if they could get rid of all the birds on the patio...it would be... More
