LA needs more of this type of mini-chain. The lengthy menu covers cafeteria-style dishes (braises such as red miso beef short rib), rices, noodles, pastas and side dishes, plus toothsome sandwiches (beef and horseradish aioli, for instance). To drink, there are basic coffees, plus soft drinks including a variety of lemonades. OK, the $1 cupcakes won't win any awards, and at busy times the ordering system can get a bit chaotic, but overall Lemonade is a winner. Some branches are open at weekends.

One of my favorite chains in Los Angeles and a wonderfully "West Coast" place to eat. Served cafeteria style and with healthy options ranging from salads to sandwiches to sides, Lemonade legitimately has something for every taste. Amongst my favorites are their celery root + gouda dish & their Israeli cous cous. All of the dishes are made in house and most are just as flavorful as they are healthy. If you're getting a few sides or adding a drink (the blood orange lemonade is excellent) or dessert, a trip here can definitely get pricey. But don't be scared off by that or by the lines you might see, Lemonade is absolutely worth it.

I love the cafeteria concept. They always have great selections for every kind of diet that vary day to day. My favorite is their chocolate pudding though. Don't skip it!

Truffle mac and cheese. I don't really need to say anything else. This place is great—the lines can be long, the prices are a little more than what I'd like to spend on lunch, but the truffle mac and cheese makes coming here worth it, a million times over.
