Left Coast is a fast-casual restaurant that wants you to eat on the healthier side without being totally bland and boring. They have you covered in the morning, afternoon, and night, whether it’s oatmeal, a cold pressed juice, or an any number of salads, wraps, and grain bowls. The idea is that you can get in and out rather quickly with something healthy, but they’ve also made it a comfortable place to sit and eat. The space is large with big open windows, concrete floors, and brick walls, which makes it bright and welcoming. Plus there’s even a side patio when you want to catch some sun with your healthy food.
