I got the superfood blueberry waffles and strawberry cream smoothie. I was so happy to be able to order waffles out again!

Review


I have eaten at several Life Alive locations in the past without incident, but after eating here on Sunday for lunch I had immediate stomach pain, bloating, and gas. In the days since, I have also had soft and inconsistent stool. I ordered the Southwest Sol bowl with feta and a raspberry sparkling drink. I told the person taking orders I had a gluten allergy. I can’t be certain if I was exposed to cross contact and got sick from Life Alive, but my experience was enough to make me wary.
