Directions to Life
A slightly pricey, organic vegetarian restaurant with an outdoor terrace, this café is the perfect, relaxing, ecofriendly oasis from the concrete jungle of Central.
The Life Café experience is in the eye of the beholder. Corporate lawyers hail it as a super-hippy, healthy, organic joint where you go after your yoga class, while California backpackers complain that it is overly snooty and commercialized, and just about as ‘authentically organic’ as Starbucks. The verdict: somewhere in between. It has a natural warm ambiance created through natural wooden tables and chairs. It has real plants throughout, which, with the 2nd floor outdoor terrace, give it a yuppie-chic, sustainable feel. However, the general consensus is that the ambiance makes it worth it, albeit it being a bit on the expensive side, and the service being hit or miss.
Worth noting, however, there is no A/C on the 3rd floor, just eves and a fan. In line with this, this locale isn’t particularly equipped for very large parties. If you’re in a rush, they also have a lively deli/bakery for takeaways.
Favorite dishes include their signature Life Salad, the African Quinoa Stew, Vegetable Lasagna, Tofu Skewer, Life Burger and Carrot Cake, and selection of fresh juices. Steer clear of the risotto. Coffee is so-so, though organic.
After visit the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Museum , walk about 5 minutes, turn right on Caine Road, then turn left onto Shelly Street, and it’s on your right.
No reservations accepted Weekends from 9AM – 6PM.
