With its original location in Sherman Oaks, the popular superfood cafe Harvest Bar has opened its latest location in Playa.

“We invest in our customers by creating easy, delicious, and healthful food that makes people feel good. So far, they’ve responded enthusiastically by coming back again and again and spreading the word. Our brisk 40+% growth should continue into 2018 and see the addition of at least two more stores,” said Aric Haut, CEO & Founder of Harvest Bar.
We were able to sample a few items off of the menu. We ordered the Cuban bowl and Mediterranean bowl and from a true Texan I was pleasantly surprised. The Cuban was filled to the brim with flavor. Based with quinoa, black beans, mango chunks, onions, and jackfruit carnitas this bowl was EVERYTHING! Not only did it pack a kick but there were so many layers of flavor. The Mediterranean bowl had your typical quinoa, beans, tomato, onion and a creamy yogurt sauce on top. We and so tried the protein mixes, super filling and great for those on-the-go!
“We are trying to bring something new to the area and get rid of the stereotype that comes with Superfood,” explains Haut. “Harvest Bar is flavorful and also very filling. We want people to give us a try, I guarantee you will like it.”
The new, nearly 1,500 square foot restaurant is open daily from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm and is located at 8601 Lincoln Blvd. (near the corner of Manchester) in Los Angeles, CA 90045
