A fun place to visit. Sit down inside or out, alone or with friends and enjoy a healthy, delicious meal. The bowls filled with grains and veggies are topped with amazingly delicious and unique dressings/sauces. Even the small size is filling, but everything tastes so good, you might wish you had ordered a large just so you could keep eating.... More

Seven of us had lunch at Life Alive in December 2016. I loved the quirky menu and had a hard time choosing (I wanted everything!). Most in the party ordered the batchelor's wrap (or similar nam) and they all liked it. I can't remember what I ordered but it was delicious. The only criticism is that it took a long... More

What an amazing atmosphere and healthy food. I had a bowl with the side of avocado and red lentil hummus with gluten free sauce. Portion was big and food was delicious. Will be coming back!

Fresh ingredients, interesting dressings, healthy food, and great place for vegetarians and Vegans. You can't go wrong with any of their bowl options. We like the Swamy, Green goddess, and the Elvis Alive smoothie is also really good as a desert.

A guy at Lowell train station recommended that I visit this restaurant. It is very quirky, with brilliant food combinations, and obviously successful with locals and visitors. I had a carrot, apple and ginger juice which was delicious. I like the library of books for browsing. Nice idea

I have been here several times with the same group of women. We all love to come here. It is a fun place and always nice to try a different item from the menu. It is very much worth a visit!
