Lifefood Gourmet

1248 Coral Way Coral Gables, FL 33145 | Coral Gables/South Miami | 305-856-6767

Location Description:

This organic and vegetarian food spot is a small, cute, and modern restaurant that practically screams "healthy." Surrounded by green, orange, and yellow décor, you feel as though even the walls are full of Vitamin B and acai berries. LifeFood makes you feel good. Tucked into a tree-shaded street at the beginning of the Roads, LifeFood is a great fast-food joint - minus all that pesky heartburn, arterial clogging, and excessive calorie consumption. Locals and nonlocals alike make their enlightened way to the eatery for a variety of nutritiously delicious treats such as salads and smoothies. One of the most popular dishes is a burrito ($12.00) consisting of pumpkin nut meat, nacho "cheese," guacamole, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream wrapped in a tortilla. A Mediterranean salad ($10.00) consists of romaine lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, pita-style flax chips, and hummus, dressed with lemon, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper. If you're feeling a little risqué, you might want to try an all-vegetable pizza ($13.00) made with spinach, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, bell peppers, with some notorious "cheese" also making an appearance. No matter what your healthy leanings are, you'll be remiss if you don't grab a mamey smoothie ($8.50) made with wild milk, mamey, and palm nectar.
