Venice Beach is known for having quite a few delicious, unique places to eat, but they've also snuck in some wonderful healthy and organic options in there as well! When you're exploring the beautiful Venice Beach area, make sure to check out these locations for a great meal that will not make you feel regretful after it's gone!

Island Organics Smoothie & Juice Bar

My personal favorite place to grab lunch in Venice Beach is Island Organics, which just went through remodeling to extend this little cafe for more seating. Now as a spacious, relaxing environment, it's the perfect spot to meet up with a friend and catch up over the best acai bowl you've ever had! They have an array of options for acai bowls, smoothies, juices, salads, soups, and sandwiches. All options at this restaurant are nutritious but still delicious! The avocado toast paired with the green smoothie calls is definitely a great way to start your day! Not only does Island Organics have great food items, but they also have lattes and specialty coffees to choose from as well. So if you happen to be in Venice Beach, drive on over to Miami Avenue and visit this smoothie and juice bar from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. Be sure to make it any of these six days because they're closed on Sundays.

Cafe Evergreen

Another healthy and organic place to eat at in Venice Beach is Cafe Evergreen. This cafe uses all house-made foods without preservatives while looking for non-GMO's as well as using local sources for their products, so they take pride in serving clean foods! They serve breakfast. lunch, and dinner with plenty of options including those that are vegan, gluten-free, and vegetarian for those with food limitations. Cafe Evergreen also serves juices and smoothies as well as wine, beer, and cider. The food choices vary from wraps and sandwiches to soups and salads as well as specialty plates such as salmon, stir fry, or ravioli! With such a variety to chose from, this place will please the whole gang! 

Upper Crust Café & Bakery

Though the Upper Crust Cafe isn't known to be a healthy location because of their plethora of baked goods and famous scones, they actually have healthy lunch and breakfast options on their menu. Their sandwiches are to die for like their turkey and avocado sandwich, which also happens to be a healthy choice. They also serve fresh fruit as an alternative side, so you're saving calories there and getting a dose of antioxidants! Not only is their food fantastic, but Upper Crust Cafe is absolutely adorable with shabby chic including tea cups and pots that add to the charm.

Thai Bistro

To wrap up our list of healthy and organic places to eat in Venice Beach, Thai Bistro has plenty of vegetable dishes, and the most authentic, delicious, Thai you've ever had. Not surprisingly, they are rated the best Thai restaurant in Venice Beach. They have vegan options, but all of their dishes are fresh. Thai Bistro also has takeout options in case you want to grab something quick to eat at home. If you're ever dining at Thai Bistro, be sure to try their fresh vegetable rolls: you won't be disappointed!
