Want a sandwich with a smoothie and some good vibes on the side? Enter, Life Alive.
Life Alive (www.lifealive.com) is an organic smoothie shop/coffee shop/sandwich shop rolled into one. Located in downtown Lowell, tucked away on a cobblestone street, the shop shocks with its funky atmosphere in a quaint location. Life Alive is the perfect calming antidote to the bustle of Boston and the business of the city of Lowell. However, for those city dwellers who can't stand the thought of leaving Bean you are in luck. In a few short weeks Life Alive will be opening a second location right in the heart of Cambridge.
Decorated in bright colors with designs and knick-knacks, the shop is perfect for a lunch or a light dinner. While it does boast wraps, soups, and regular dinners, Life Alive lives up to its own self-knowledge. Selling a salad called “The Crunchy Hippie,” Life Alive excels at being the organic, unique shop for the younger crowd. Beyond the yummy food, Life Alive serves up a holistic view of food. Life Alive is here to "Soulfully serve you the most fantastic, vibrant, organic whole food you could ever imagine." Makes me want to take a big bite out of a good sandwich and life all at the same time.
Sumo Skinny likes to spread love and pleasure too!
The true jewels of Life Alive are the smoothies. Pricier (probably because of being organic), these smoothies are well worth the extra dollar. Infused with nutrients but disguised with delicious flavors in unique combinations (the “Vibrance Alive” has “Ginger, Date, Strawberry, Banana, Lemon, Maple Syrup, and Pure Water,” for example), the smoothies are tasty and different. Suitable for a summer afternoon or a day when your non-coffee loving friend wants a coffee-like date, Life Alive offers a haven of relaxed culture.
