Lemonade Arrives in Walnut Creek, California

By Sandy Leung

The fast-growing fresh food chain Lemonade has debuted in Walnut Creek in East Bay. Known for its seasonal dishes with a chef-driven and “vegetable-centric” menu, the new location is situated in the heart of Walnut Creek’s vibrant downtown dining district. The company’s charming founder and executive chef, Alan Jackson was attracted to the city’s “small town feel and family friendly community”.

The beautiful new restaurant features a lively yellow interior, organic wood paneling, two separate patios and a living plant wall. The menu caters to a wide variety of dietary needs, offering an array of meat, pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, as well as succulent slow cooked meats, delicious palm-sized macarons, and its signature lemonade, available in six different flavors.

Choose from salads, sandwiches, braised dishes, hot dishes and desserts. You can try their Old Fashioned lemonade or go bold and opt for Cucumber Mint, Watermelon Rosemary or Guava Limeade. This location also offers "Pick-Me-Ups", which are desserts in a jar that you can just grab and go, featuring your favorite pie, cake or cheesecake.
