    Cafeteria style serving but high quality, delicious, healthy food! Very reasonably priced for the good-sized portions. Cute and tasty desserts too!

    Amazing sandwiches, kind of like Bristol Farm.. Great place to drink some Lemonade on a hot summer day. Lots of choices to choose from and decide what you want to eat.
    Choose land or sea and you get the best of both worlds with seafood or veggies or mac and cheese galore.

    Love this place for the healthy food, cafeteria style! Parking may be difficult on weekends, so you may have to circle around the neighborhoods. There can be long lines during meal rush hours as well.

    Love the truffle mac and cheese and red quinoa. Love the watermelon and blueberry lemonades too.

    Thanks to gogobot, I had the chance to try their food! I have heard mixed reviews about this place. Some says its THE place to go, some mentioned it's over priced hipster food. I leaned toward the latter because most of the people I talked to didn't make it sound that amazing to try. I'm really glad I got to try this place.

    Service: was great and the restaurant is clean.
    Food: Everything seemed healthy and light yet filling. I had the pasta with goat cheese and avocado topped with scrambled tuna. Their banana cake were to DIE for!!! I also got a pistacchio macaron on the side.
    Lemonade: One of the best, refreshing lemonade I've had. I still crave for my watermelon rosemary lemonade :) Blueberry mint is another good option if you like your drink sweet but not too sweet.

    Overall I liked it here and I'll def come back when I'm in Venice.

    Parking:
    residential or paid

    Healthy and delicious! So many options! Feel free to ask for samples if you don't know what to choose. I highly recommend getting the banana mascarpone cake for dessert! It's to die for! Love the service and food here! It's a must try!

    Well the words that I use to describe Lemonade are Pretentious and FruFru. So based on that alone I am sure you can figure out what my feelings are about this place for the most part.

    I like several things but have issues with several others. The breads, pastries, and desserts are decent. The main meat/fish courses are good as well. The “salads” are not for me at all. *SMH*

    Pro Tip: Free parking in back on the dirt strip in the ally!

    I tried the buttermilk breaded chicken cutlet and had a couscous salad. I look back and ask myself why… neither item was warm at all. I thought that both may be. Couscous can be hot or cold, but it was super cold here and had lots of other things that I am not all that into in it. What really shocked me to the icy core was that the chicken was also very cold. I just don’t like cold chicken. I don’t know many people who will take cooked chicken out of the fridge and just start eating it.

    But that is essentially what it was here. Cold grub that you thought would be warm at least. Next time its called stick to the $6 per half cup of crock potted meats. Those are at least hot and usually decent even if the flavors can be a bit “peculiar”.

    Pro Tip #2: They have a water dispenser to grab a drink if needed.

    The lemonade is good but is hit or miss at times. Sometimes too sweet sour or strong. But it can be consumed. There are also a number of different flavors of lemonade. That is definitely awesome and being able to enjoy the different ones is a nice touch.

    When I was here, I was with a large group and unsurprisingly they didn’t allow us to sample, as they usually encourage. That fact alone really kinda soured me a bit. This place was super easy to find and had large bathrooms. Unfortunately they only have one bathroom per sex here. So there can end up being a line depending on time of day and frequency of need.

    Overall I am yet again less than impressed with the Lemonade chain of restaurants. Hopefully this will change in the future.

    Lemonade has a great variety of food for you to choose from. I love all the different salads that they have in their marketplace section. You should pick at least two marketplace items. I really like the soba noodles and Oxnard strawberries. Then there's the land + sea section. Pick the meat of your choice. The avocado salmon louie is a must! If you don't like fish, get the green apply chicken curry. And of course, get your cup of lemonade. My favorite is the cucumber mint lemonade :)

    Very few places deserves a 5 star..but when you're contemplating having 2 meals at the same place on the same day because your tummy can't fit any more food at the moment, but there's so many more things you wanted to try.. you know you've found a winner.

    Lemonade has an abundance of fresh and tasty options to choose from. The dishes range from all sorts of different ethnic regions and nothing lacks for flavor. Their menu seemed really healthy too! You could enjoy your meal without feeling guilty. Okay, dessert will run up your calorie total for the day but it is SOO worth it (Banana Marscapone Cake ftw!)

    You can't go wrong with any of the dishes here at Lemonade. Everything we ordered looked and tasted fantastic. Now..I'm just waiting for them to open up a location in the OC so I don't have to trek so far to get my fix... :)

    Yum! There are so many choices here, you might want to stay for two meals! It's sort of cafeteria style, where you browse the options laid out and pick what looks good. Everything is fresh and delicious. Be sure to try their desserts!!! Awesome selection.

    Quick, quality, and healthy food. A little pricey for a cafeteria style place but the taste and quality make it worthwhile.

    Get your lemonade & feel-good, organic, (vegetarian?), earthy food here. Think lentils and chickpeas and tofu and stuff like that. The food is actually quite good, if not a bit overpriced. But a nice place to stop and have a bite of something different.

    Love, love, love. Brightly lit, cute, cafeteria-style joint with a very huge selection of healthy eats - interesting salads, grilled salmon etc. etc. - plus, a nice selection of not-so healthy baked goodies :) As one would expect, the lemonades are great and refreshing, although a tad too sweet for my tastes (I dilute mine with a bit of water). My only complaint is that the trays are too large for the rails you push them along AND the rails are not level, so I've seen many a tray go flying or slide off, mine included!

    Tasty lemonades, so not just a cleaver name. Also very clean looking neat food, nice selection and open and fresh. Chicken chile was tasty but not too warm. I drank a guava ginger lemonade, awesome.

    I have never eaten here and it may possibly be because it never looked particularly appealing. It looks like they may have some good healthy dishes to takeout, reminiscent of the Whole Foods premade area.
    My rating is based on the lemonade, which is the reason I entered in the first place. Nothing is better after a hot beach day than a refreshing lemonade, and when there are no kids selling the inevitable from powder plastic cup lemonade for a dollar, this is second best. They have a choice of flavors that are what you would expect in Venice beach: mint, lavender, cucumber, etc.. and somehow I continue to go back for more!

    Great food with uniquely tasting salads and home-made stews. A bit noisy inside by YUM!
