Ok, I know it's kind of fast food style, but the service wasn't great. I've honestly have had better service at McDonalds. Grumpy face, grumpy attitude. Would make me not go back and recommend that others do the same.

Varying flatbreads all excellent among a large varied menu, and can be shared with friends for variety. Inside plants attractive. Not crowded and not too noisy, off University Avenue. Limited outdoor seating under terrace at sidewalk. Gluten-free and vegan-vegetarian options: all well-marked. Kitchen visible from inside. Friendly service. Takeout available.

Fresh ingredients and a healthy menu makes Lyfe a nice reasonably priced every day type restaurant. The wine list is limited and Lyfe serves beer.

This was a very good experience. Great decor and I like the fresh healthy food choices, the atmosphere and the very friendly work staff. Since my visit to this Lyfe restaurant, I have visited one in Chicago. Although the food was still quality and the workers were friendly, I did not like the open, fast food, food court style of...

We got take out several times from here, and had mixed experiences. The salads were very good the first time (Farmer's and Quinoa our favs), though the second time we got pick up they had left out the salad dressings, which made them not so great. The sweet potato fries don't travel well, tho suspect they are fine at the... More

We went here for breakfast and had a pretty good breakfast. We're vegan and there were some nice vegan options, including a breakfast burrito that was tasty. The potatoes were very greasy for a place that prides themselves on healthy options (cut back on the oil a bit please!). Coffee was decent. I ordered a beet juice which was good... More

On a Saturday afternoon, the place was buzzing with crowd for lunch. I ordered a farmhouse burger, which was very dry and not so tasty. I then requested for some sauce, which never landed on our table. It is okay for a casual eat out with friends but not more.

This was a nice place to grab a quick bite. We sampled two soups (corn chowder and tomato), a mushroom flatbread and a bowl of curry. All were tasty and satisfying. Service was efficient and polite. Our one criticism is that both soups were served just barely warm, which seemed intentional, since the flatbread and curry were nice and hot.

I've been here a few times but was pretty disappointed the last two: the service declined a lot. They used to have a very precise indoor-locating system to take your orders to your table and now they implemented a very old school numbering system; the waiters kept brining food to our table that we didn't ordered. We should have just... More
