Fresh ingredients and very tasty dishes. Whether it's the juices, the smoothies or the meals - everything tastes amazing!! Awesome for vegetarians and Vegans or anybody that believes that you are what you eat. Word of caution: depending on the time of day, it can get very busy at this location of Life Alive, but the food is definitely worth... More

When our AirBnb host recommended Life Alive to us, we thought it sounded good. Little did we know it wasn't going to be just "good" - it is awesome! The line to order was very long but it's worth the wait (and the wait wasn't all that long anyway - they process orders fairly quickly). I ordered a demi Explorer... More

Many times I am skeptical of organic restaurants but this place was VERY busy and the food was fresh and excellent. Even though the line was long they gave free maple seltzer to drink while we waited . I would definitely recommend and I will be soon.

I went for the miso masterful, a miso broth with udon noodles and various vegetables. It was absolutely delicious. Be prepared for a bit of a queue, this place seems to be crazy popular.

My friend told me about this place when I asked where I should eat and I am so glad I did! Everything is vegetarian and sounds so good. I was able to try three dishes as I was there with two other people who ordered different food. Every one of the dishes were delicious! I love that everything is healthy... More

I wish there was one in every city. I feel so happy when i eat there. The only problem is narrowing down my choices to order.

One of the reasons I cook a lot is that food "out" tends to make choices that are just not healthy for every day. Life Alive is one of the few places I've ever been where I think I could eat there perhaps three meals a day and be healthier than I am now, and without sacrificing pleasure! I avoid... More

We ate here twice and loved everything. The Spring alive smoothie was fantastic And every salad was tasty, fresh and colourful. The service was quick and friendly and whether your a Veggie or not it's worth the trip. Great place 10/10

We had a great dinner! All 5 dishes were fresh and happy. We were 4 adults, sharing 3 "demi" plates, one big salad and one big plate, and that was more than enough!
