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!

Such a fabulous place! Relaxing, peaceful and worth the wait for your meal. This neighborhood is teeming with great spots to eat and drink, this is my favorite. You won't be disappointed, try the Adventurer:)

Looking for something different and don't want fast food. Check this place out. They have good size portions with real food. Everything is whole grain so it is filling and very fresh.

Whether is downtown Lowell or in Cambridge, I feel like this is a must stop when I have the time! My favorites are the rebel bowl or the adventurer and an Elvis alive smoothie! It's good for you and so filling! If your adventurous and like vegetarian food, give it a shot! I promise you won't be disappointed!

Thank kerri9888
