Definitely a must try place for all foodies, vegans, healthy food fans and people who really care about what they eat. I felt the restaurant had a great vibe with lot of originality. The food was fresh with different flavors some which were quite unique combinations.  Items on my order: Edamame Hummus and Asian Stir Veg fry Rating Food 5/5 The... More

My wife and I have passed by LYFE Kitchen near downtown Palo Alto numerous times over the past few years. Tonight we thought we'd finally give it a try. We looked at the menu and thought to ourselves, this might work for us; my wife's a vegetarian, and I stick to an ultra-low-carb diet. While the low carb offerings at... More

Such a fun menu of foods to try! Drinks are exquisite. Loved the beet one. Pizza is thin flatbread style. The broccoli side dish is YUM!

Ok, I know it's kind of fast food style, but the service wasn't great. I've honestly have had better service at McDonalds. Grumpy face, grumpy attitude. Would make me not go back and recommend that others do the same.

Varying flatbreads all excellent among a large varied menu, and can be shared with friends for variety. Inside plants attractive. Not crowded and not too noisy, off University Avenue. Limited outdoor seating under terrace at sidewalk. Gluten-free and vegan-vegetarian options: all well-marked. Kitchen visible from inside. Friendly service. Takeout available.

Fresh ingredients and a healthy menu makes Lyfe a nice reasonably priced every day type restaurant. The wine list is limited and Lyfe serves beer.

This was a very good experience. Great decor and I like the fresh healthy food choices, the atmosphere and the very friendly work staff. Since my visit to this Lyfe restaurant, I have visited one in Chicago. Although the food was still quality and the workers were friendly, I did not like the open, fast food, food court style of...

We got take out several times from here, and had mixed experiences. The salads were very good the first time (Farmer's and Quinoa our favs), though the second time we got pick up they had left out the salad dressings, which made them not so great. The sweet potato fries don't travel well, tho suspect they are fine at the... More

We went here for breakfast and had a pretty good breakfast. We're vegan and there were some nice vegan options, including a breakfast burrito that was tasty. The potatoes were very greasy for a place that prides themselves on healthy options (cut back on the oil a bit please!). Coffee was decent. I ordered a beet juice which was good... More
