What We're All About

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

I have been in 6 times since first trying CoreLife just 10 days ago or so (a couple times to pickup for my wife, a few times for myself). Panera has done some good things with their menu, but I still end up feeling like I'm getting a bit ripped off when I go there. The prices at CoreLife are perfect.I recommend the Chicken Tortilla broth bowl and the Southwest Chicken rice bowl. I wasn't as crazy about the ginger steak broth bowl, but it could be personal preference. I always sprinkle just a quarter grind of fresh sea salt on mineI ate there for lunch today with my mom who loves fresh flavors...going back for dinner with a friend! My 16 month old approves too...Everyone has been friendly each time I have been in. The fresh lemonades are awesome as is the cold brew coffee to go...One of the most unique and appreciated restaurants to come in a long time! My only complaint is never knowing what to choose from the menu! 🙂read more

The food is delicious and fresh. The broth has a deep flavor that probably comes from hours of cooking. My one complaint is that there are multiple ways to have the food prepared (it's a fast casual restaurant with greens, proteins, noodles, and broth), but the person starting my order assumed I was ordering it as a salad, and I thought I was ordering a soup. They quickly fixed it, but it got my first experience off on the wrong foot.read more

Wonderful place to get healthy, vegetarian, or vegan options! Their food tastes great and the price I feel is reasonable for the quality of food.They do force you through the line very fast which makes you uncomfortably close to the people next to you.The only thing that threw me off was the first time I came here I had black beans, chickpeas, avacado, kale, broccoli, and quinoa in my bowl and the woman actually asked me if I wanted protein. Maybe they should learn the difference between "protein" and "meat" before they ask that.read more

Vegan options! They let you sub out proteins. Great option for healthy eating on the go. Can also eat in. Delicious flavors and dressings.

As a vegetarian and borderline vegan I truly appreciate restaurants like the Core Life Eatery that make it an easy experience eating out. Their food has a great flavor that is deep and rich. The ability to order a combination of quinoa and salad is a great addition to an already complete meal. The staff does seem knowledgeable and willing to help but also seem very much in a hurry to move you on to the next station. Falafel was on point along with the hummus. The roasted veggies however were a little unremarkable. With the how great everything else was I would have expected the roasted veggies to be properly cooked but unfortunately they were nearly raw and basically flavorless aside from the taste they have sat in a steam table for an hour. I will avoid the roasted veggies in the future but it was not enough to reduce the rating from anything but a five star. The atmosphere was casual and dining area staff greeted me and was very kind. The selection of lemonade is something I was unaware of and will be partaking of next time I am able to dine with them.read more

Was greeted with a smiling face to ask if we've been in before! The manager or owner explain the bowls and their best sellers. Tried the steak, bacon and gorgonzola was awesome, great texture, and favor mixed in one. They have different type of lemonades that make the food have even more favor. Highly recommended this place to eat. If you like healthier food.
