Was walking around the area during lunchtime a few weeks ago every restaurant was empty except for Life Alive I had to check it out and was delighted that I did! I am not a Vegan however I enjoy eating "real food" this place rocks it out of the park I ordered The Goddess which is their signatire wrap and a side of Hummus absolutely positively delicious, friendly staff and helpful ( they were patient and answered all my questions) Very clean and an excellent vibe I look forward to returning on my next visit to Salem!!

HUGE menu. So many options, and so many things I don't like...but there was one thing I knew I would love and I was 100% right. Broccoli, cheese, mmmm. I believe it was called The Romantic. Coconut shake was great too. Not too much this or that. Ordering was a bit confusing, as they had about 10 questions after we ordered. My friend just wanted a box to get half her sandwich to go and the man ignored her until she got in line again just to find out that the boxes were next to the trash. Maybe some signage? But there was tons of that already with quotes and why organic is great.

A vegetarian wonderland of options... bowls, wraps, salads and smoothies. You can even get ciders and beers, which is fun. I got The Green Goddess with the Ginger Nama Shoyu sauce with flax oil and garlic, avocado, broccoli, greens, and tofu with brown rice. I am telling you - it was GARLICY. But to me, that was great. The wrap is the perfect size for lunch. The coconut smoothie my friend ordered was amazing as well. Coconut flavored without being too powerful. The line, however, was long and jumbled. Only one man was taking order AND phone orders, which was way too much. They definitely needed one more person on the register during the lunch rush. He was friendly, though, and going as fast as he could while staying accurate. The dining room is spacious and has nice decorations, reminding everyone the power of eating organically.

I've been looking forward to trying this restaurant for months (visiting from Michigan) and it did not disappoint. I was overwhelmed by the options as everything sounded great. I am a vegetarian so I greatly enjoy a restaurant where I can have everything. I tried the Rebel this time, and the ginger sauce was great. The vegetables were fresh and superb. Delicious food, quick preparation time. The decor was bright and exciting. I brought my brother who is a fan of meat and even he enjoyed the Romantic. I sampled my girlfriend's the Fool and greatly enjoyed that as well. If I lived closer I would frequent this restaurant more often. Reasonable prices for great food.
