Review of Good Life Cafe

1614 Main Street, Columbia, SC 29201

Overall Rating


Our group of 4 went in not realizing it, but the restaurant menu is entirely GF. We also learned it is raw & vegan. Had I known that, we probably wouldn't have gone - we enjoy relatively healthy, real food, but that's about it. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Even my veggie-averse 4-year-old loved everything. We ended up with many dishes, not realizing how large the portions would be and that there were sides in addition that were included. We tasted about 7 different things and all were excellent and well-received by my carnivore husband, 2 kids and me. Only my 7-year-old daughter needs gluten-free but we all loved lunch. We tried several salads, chips and guacamole, a burrito, a banana "bacon" and almond butter sandwich, and a noodle dish (zucchini, sweet potato, daikon or kelp noodles) with various sauces... I had zucchini noodles with mushroom stroganoff which was excellent. Nothing was as expected but everything exceeded our expectations. Only downside was our server was brand new and needed way more training on the menu.

Celiac friendly?
