“Surprisingly Good Lunch Spot”
Review of Lemonade

This place gets good ratings, but it serves food cafeteria style, so I wondered why. Then I tried it. The way it works is you take a tray and go down the line picking what you want, then pay and take your tray to your table, and bus your tray yourself after you're done. They have lots of salads plus Mac & Cheese, etc. We tried something called the "Farmer's Marketplace" which is your choice of pretty large helpings of 4 different salads. I have tried this twice, and everything I tried was very good (especially the tomato and avocado salad). At $11.50 this is a real bargain, but almost too much food. You can eat inside or out...outside is in the "Commons," a quiet and shaded spot on a small shopping street off Lake Avenue. All in all an excellent choice for lunch.

This is a cafeteria-style place, very informal, but the food has the creativity and quality that one associates with fine dining. The Brussel sprouts with anchovies are wonderful!

A clean looking place to clean your hungry soul. The dynamic lemonade store is a mix of farmers market with healthy eats, organic or veggie restaurant all together. When making the line, you may have difficulty making choices of what you want because everything looks fresh and appetizing. Needless to say, instead of ordering salads or soup I aim for the "adult-grilled" cheese sandwich. Yes, is not the healthiest item in the menu but once you eat it you feel invigorating.

The salads here are really different and interesting. I had to jump the line so I had an idea of all of the options, but no biggie. I recommend the 5-salad meal--that way you get to try a bunch of yummy salads. Yes, it is a bit pricey, especially for the buffet, cafeteria style, but the decor is bright, clean and pleasant.

Buffet with salad and sandwiches, lemonade a speciality. Nice food, a bit pricy. Pleasant staff, excellent for lunch.
