Eatsa is definitely one of the more unique and futuristic restaurants I’ve had the chance to visit. When you walk in, you will be met with several touchpad machines lined up and ready to take your order. That’s right – there are no servers at Eatsa. The place is fast casual to its core, but it’s eliminated pretty much any human contact – once your order has been placed and is ready for your consumption, you actually go pick it up from a wall lined with cubbies where a magical elf “backstage” has placed it for you. Okay, maybe magical elf is a little too extreme, but one must wonder who’s really back there!…
Once you get used to the fact that you don’t have to interact with humans during any point of your meal, you kind of enjoy it. Do you ever have those days where you just want to be alone, but you’re also too lazy to cook for yourself? Head to Eatsa. You’ll be able to choose a nice meal and customize it to your every desire on the iPad without having to deal with anyone. It’s kind of great.
I dined at Eatsa for breakfast, and was impressed with the amount of options the magical elves were able to whip up in the few short minutes it took for my food to be made. My favorite dish was the Southwestern Bowl, made with lemon-herb quinoa, pico de gallo, spinach, guacamole, and an egg on top rather than scrambled, (which do have dairy in them). You can also customize your own breakfast bowl at Eatsa, which is always fun. If you’re the type that usually gravitates towards sweet breakfast foods, they have a spiced apple quinoa “oatmeal” that is dairy-free and sweetened with agave. So trendy!
While I haven’t made it to Eatsa yet for lunch or dinner, they have a good amount of variety on the menu. There are several variables in the offerings for lunch and dinner that do contain gluten, so just make sure to customize your dish to leave those off.
