Somehow there always seems to be more room for a healthy, light lunch spot in L.A. El Segundo's brand-new Lifestyle Cafe is just such a nook, opening to the town's Main Street last Thursday with a health-conscious menu that begins on oatmeal and egg slider sandwiches and ends with fruit smoothies, salmon and quinoa tuna salads, and pannini starring those old SoCal standbys, chicken, ahi, and turkey, all at a price point just below ten dollars.
The restaurant, which has a chain-friendly, counter-service vibe, also carries a pastry case stocked with muffins and danishes. As an extra measure of care for your heart and figure, Lifestyle will also customize orders to customers' specific health-needs and medical issues, and offers whole grain breads like Ezekiel, alongside thin bagels, organic milks, and other, sensible eating options for those who want them.
