This is THE SPOT. I'm not a vegetarian or a vegan. But my wife and I love to try new things. So we dropped by around 10:15am and Catherine helped us (Catherine is GREAT by the way). She was very very pleasant and since this was our first time, she explained the menu of how they prepare the food. My wife ordered the Almond Butter Bacon Sandwich (almond butter, maple syrup & eggplant “bacon” served on their sweet bread) and I ordered the Burrito (walnut meat, salsa, lettuce, cashew sour cream, guacamole, served in their flax wrap). Let me tell you something: WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. Now you have to remember, everything they prepare is RAW. From their website, "If you are new to raw foods, they consist of unprocessed plant foods that have not been heated above 115 degrees.". And both dishes were FULL of flavor, good portion size, and FULL of flavor. Which basically mean: DELICIOUS! And did I mention the food is RAW? The interior of the cafe is modern with being futuristic and sets a good mood. This is place for vegans and non-vegans. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Give it a try.

A friend of mine and I went to Good Life Vegan on Main Street (unfortunately I can’t a find a review site for them) and we had a surprise that we did not see coming. No one would wait on us! A male server eyed us when we came in and then turned his head and went in another direction. The other servers appeared occupied doing other things. We went and sat down and the same male server walked past our table as though we were not there. He left and came in our direction again and we thought he was coming to bring us water and a menu, but instead he walked past us again and proceeded to engage in conversation with a man sitting at a table next to us. He talked long with this guy as he occasionally laughed during the conversation. A couple later walked in the restaurant after us and a female server immediately greeted them and told them she would be right with them. They (the couple) sat at a table on the other side of us and the female server immediately got a menu and water for them, while the male server, who was to wait on us, continued to laugh and talk with the guy sitting at the table on the other side of us. After several minutes of waiting I finally got up and asked a server behind the counter was anyone going to wait on us and she gave some response about a shortage of help in the kitchen. I did not understand what that had to do with no one serving us. When I got back to my table the male server had left from talking with his friend at the other table and was now somewhere in the back. We waited again a little longer and then decided to leave because we were concern as to what might happen with our food with all this ignoring of us going on. We left the restaurant and went to the theatre hungry because of the wasted time at the restaurant. Before I wrote this review, I decided to call and talk with the manager because I did not want to believe that we were ignored for service at Good Life Vegan. After talking to the manager the next day, she made it known that she was there that day as well. She described the man who was sitting at the table next to us and was aware that her male server was engaged in conversation with this other customer next to us. I did ask her was there something wrong with my friend and I as to why we were not served and of course she did not confirm anything. The manager never convinced me that she shun such behavior in her restaurant nor did I hear sincere disappointed that we experience that. So, unfortunately, here I am. I will end by adding that my friend and I are both people of color. People come on, this is the 21st Century!

Went to location Main St. While staying in town on business in June. I very much enjoyed the super green smoothie and bought my hubby a "keep the doc away" juice and because of that drink his stomach has been better now that I can make it for him at home. Would definitely recommend

Best food on planet earth!! Sharon is an amazing talented whole foods chef. The smoothies are not only the most healthy you will find, but delicious in every way. If you want to feel and look your very best, RAW food is the way to go and Sharon has perfected it. The new downtown location is just gorgeous and has a nice vibe. I give Good Life Cafe 5 stars because there is no place like it!

I ate there with my girlfriend one night about two weeks ago just following a spontaneous moment. We had no expectations, if anything we thought " How good could it be?" after all they don't cook any of the food. Without going into detail about what we ate and steering clear of hyperbole you owe it to yourself to go and eat here. The tastes they manage to bring out of the dishes we had was nothing short of amazing.

Worst experience ever! A older lady with blondish hair (a manager im assuming) is about the rudest, person I have ever come across. The portions are small and to be uncooked food my eggplant bacon almost burned my mouth!?!?!?
