We ordered three items (pics below) and we enjoyed the presentation, freshness and taste of all 3: pancakes were light with a tasty blueberry compote; potatoes and salsa verde were perfect sides for the breakfast burrito and the taco filling was great with the salsa...More

We had a family group brunch here on a Sunday before a Stanford graduation. My first and only time at a Lyfe Kitchen, but would be happy to go back. My wife and I split blueberry pancakes and a breakfast wrap. Both were very good.

Although the decor and atmosphere is a bit fast-food, the chowder makes it worth it, and the menu is good for vegan and vegetarian eaters. We have used take-out service more often than staying in the restaurant.

We have been to Lyfe on 3-4 occasions. Ingredients seem to be of good quality. They have some nice local-regional beers. Quick service. Good location. Will drop by again, on our next visit.

This place was excellent when it opened and for a few years, but now it is very empty and food menu has changed and gone down. They removed the best item on the menu, grilled artichokes, were to die for/live for! Last time I ate...More

Many of my friends and family like this place. Ive been there twice now in an attempt to have it grow on me, but I just don't like the food there. I found everything there dry and flavorless. The best thing I had there was...More

I loved the vibe at Lyfe Kitchen. Everything was mindful, fresh, tasty etc. I loved the flatbread (gluten free - mine with mushroom and goat cheese). Nice choice of interesting beverage options. Heaps of vegetarian options. Delicious dessert too. I'd quite happily go back for...More
