What We're All About

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

I was lucky enough to get to go to thier soft open event - the food was super fresh and delicious with a lot of exciting options ( the Cranberry Cayenne Lemonade ... lifechanging ) . Everyone working there was very friendly and wanted to answer any questions about the menu I had. Great space - I look forward to coming back soon!

Went for my first time tonight and I got the Chicken Cobb salad (Big bowl) with an apple cider juice and it was probably the best meal I had this week! The staff was all so friendly and explained the different meats and lettuce choices. I enjoy the salad and still had leftovers!! Definitely highly recommended

This is our new favorite place. Outstanding selection of healthy, full meals. Reasonable price and great service. Can see the owner takes pride in service and takes care of customers. Good location for families and groups.

Finally. Finally someone has given us a relatively quick, healthy, inexpensive and cheap option for a delicious meal. This place exceeded my expectations to the point of being surprised it's a chain. Highly recommend. Plan on around $12-13 for a meal with drink and it should absolutely fill you up.

My daughter has multiple food allergies. The manager, Mark, went out of his way Friday night to sit with us for over 15 minutes to go over the menu. He was polite, kind, and very knowledgeable. He prepared my daughter's broth bowl himself with fresh ingredients from the back. We were so appreciative of his time and help! Thank you!

This place is amazing! The staff is so friendly and really really nice! Today we went for an early lunch and the broth in my bowl was luke warm so I said something and they gave me a new bowl after making sure the broth was hot and let me take home the first one. Since finally going in there to try it to eat we eat there at least 3x a week.. It is by far one of the most delicious healthiest places to eat out! I will die if this place ever closes! Need more locations to open!read more

The food was great! The temperature inside was very chilly, I didn't want to leave my coat on because it was so cold outside.The preparer of my food acted like she didn't want to be there. I told her it was my 1st time there & may need assistance. She could care less. Upon observation, the other staff I observed were very nice & friendly

I was the kid against the whole eating your greens thing when I was younger and habits are hard to break. Until I found Corelife, this magical place where you can find something for pretty much anyone. The best part of it is that you can see it being made fresh right in front of you and the staff is just as happy about the food as you are. If your trying to get out of fast food habits and eat more healthy this is the place to go.read more

I'm in love. The atmosphere, decor and service is amazing. A wide variety of healthy options at a reasonable price gives this place an edge over other similiar resturants. Behind the serving line they display their fresh produce. One word AMAZING! If you haven't tried this place you should. You can thank me later.

I am obsessed with Core Life! They have a lot of vegan options and everything is really fresh. Everything is fully customizable, which is great. Very clean inside and friendly staff. Cafeteria style seating so you come and go as you please.

So, here is the thing. The concept is fantastic. Super custom plates or bowls. Protein and veg forward. Flavors are assertive. The decor and vibe of in house is modern industrial. The price point is ok. The overall value seems ok, but it’s still a bit soul-less. We will be back!

Wonderful, healthy choices. Green bowls. Grain bowls or Power plates. Check their website menu before you go - it helps. A little pricier than you might expect for this type of eatery. Delicious dishes.

My favorite place to get lunch. So many options, incredibly fresh ingredients, quick service, and ample seating. There is seating outdoors too when it's warm. A lot of healthy options which allows for a guilt free lunch. You can order ahead and grab food quickly too which is a bonus.

I'm on the fence as to the quality of the food and will give it a second shot. Not bad but I'm just not sure The staff was very friendly and made ordering vegan as easy as possible. They seemed quite happy to modify a dish to my preference. And you have to love the 'lemonade' bar!

Great place to eat everything is I've tried has been meticulously assembled in a very clean and efficient system with very polite people and a very clean prep areas. Their selection of drinks are not over sugared and delicious change from other franchises. What I like is the lack of desserts that temptation at the end of a meal is always a problem for me. I leave the establishment feeling healthy full, and without any guilty desserts.read more

The food is fresh, and they can customize to your taste. Like it hot and spicy? They can make it so. Like a little bit of heat, or calm as a cucumber? They can do that. It's healthy and gluten free. 👍👍

Delicious and healthy, made with white ingredients from scratch. I like the fast casual nature of it and the ambience is great. The only negative is that the ordering process is confusing... I've been a couple times but I'm never sure who to tell about modifiers... So I end up telling every employee and they keep telling me a different employee will need to know that... Seems it would be more helpful to just ask at the beginning and write it down.read more

Such great choices of healthy salads! From lettuce, to dandelion greens and a host of other veggies and wholesome grains, you will be satisfied and on your way to a healthy lifestyle. All of their salads and beverages are organic and hand made, and they have such an assortment of gluten free foods! Stop by soon, you will be so glad that you did!!

It has a really cool atmosphere. I got the steak and blue salad, it was good! The steak was a little dry and tough. But the salad was good over all. I will be back again.

Excellent customer service - when I called in with a question, a man named Dave (I assume he was a manager) answered and went above and beyond. The food was excellent, as were the drink options. Left very pleased and grateful for the food and service. They definitely gained a happy repeat customer and will recommend to everyone I know due to their A+ service and great food. Thank you so much!read more

Such a great place for lunch of dinner. The warm rice bowls are delicious and pack a great flavor. Everything is fresh and the portions are large. The added bonus is the multiple iced teas and brews they have instead of pops.

So yummy. So healthy. Guilt-free eating. Safe for all my allergy issues. Just tell them no dairy/gluten etc. And everything is smooth sailing from there. They put gloves on keep things separate and give you suggestions on great options that you can eat.

CoreLife is pretty solid and we eat there regularly, at least monthly. The plates/bowls are a pretty good value and the customer service is friendly. There are a lot of ingredients and most bowls are bound to have a few things one doesn't like but they are very good about customization and ask you every step of the way what you'd like. You do have to watch the protein: we always order double protein and have to remind them to add that second scoop. We had that problem with online orders to but in any case management in this location is customer focused and happily corrects any issues. Good location; in the summer we grab a pizza at Blaze and a salad at CoreLife and eat outside. Very pleasant.read more

I'm not really a healthy eater (college life) but this place is delicious & affordable. Go on a healthy date, study, or get some work done. The staff are all friendly! Everyone should try this place at least once in their lives

I seriously can't get enough of this place. I know it's a chain but it's so good. I always feel good after I eat here. The ordering is a lot like Moe's or Chipotle, you tell them what you want (salad, grain bowl, etc) and then they add the toppings in while you watch and you can customize them. Some things are extra, like avocado, but their combos are pretty spot on. I almost never add anything in. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fast, delicious and healthy meal. Just don't go during the lunch rush hour if you don't like lines! This place is super popular!!!!read more
