The ordering process was a little convoluted, enough so that a host is stationed at the front of the cafeteria style line, explaining the different methods of ordering. Once that is understood, you move through the line selecting from a wide range of dishes -...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

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

Disappointing dinner. Long buffet line but the best food was at the end----no insight as to the coming entrees. By the time you ordered some salads, the bill had built up to a very expensive meal. Very pricey for the average food. Cafeteria style tables...More

Lunch for two came to almost $60.00. Food is a cafeteria-style deal. Although the dishes sound yummy, what you get is pretty bland. Desserts were lousy, as in so lousy that I left my chocolate mousse...and I am a dedicated chocoholic! And the kicker...the lemonade...More

There is a lot of choice - but nothing really impressed me and so I find Lemonade to be pretty average. With all the other options in the Lake Avenue area - it wouldn't be the first place I would recommend to someone. Given that...More
