A modern take on the cafeteria, Lemonade aims to offer a seasonally changing menu of California-inspired comfort foods made in-house daily. It’s designed to cater to a modern consumer who has an on-the-go lifestyle but still tries to eat healthy. According to its website, the chain aims “to take the elitism out of conscious eating and put emphasis on convenience, flexibility and affordability.” With locations mostly in Southern California, Lemonade recently branched up north, entering the San Francisco market.
