Originating in San Diego, Beaming Café thrives off of the idea that food is our medicine, and they were inspired to find a way to translate that into an experience. With seasonal menus changing year round, the menu is plant based, and therefore all gluten-free, organic, and full of superfoods such as maca, hemp, and spirulina providing extra nutrients while maintaining its delicious integrity. With the surplus of health-food spots popping up around town, LA is extremely successful at promoting a health-focused lifestyle, and Beaming is the leader of the pack…
Beaming Cafe serves lunchtime nibbles, smoothies, juices, and a plethora of dessert options while still abiding by the company’s mission. Since they’re known for their smoothies, we sampled the Berry Delish smoothie, packed with immunity boosting minerals and vitamins, promoting energy, and the Mint Chip, made with several superfood ingredients, that yet could fool you for a creamy mint chip milkshake. The ability to customize was great, allowing for add-ins or low-glycemic options to suit whatever you’re craving.
All entrees were grab-and-go (besides the acai bowls) but everything was made fresh daily. The Holiday Salad with kale, sweet potato, dried cranberries and walnuts, was fresh and hearty without leaving us too stuffed. My personal favorite was the collard falafel wrap prepared with a collard greens shell instead of a tortilla, and a quinoa blend as the falafel base. It was served with their nut-based tzatziki sauce, hardly recognizable as dairy-free. I am one of the above-mentioned sweet tooth people, so we grabbed their seasonal specialty, a pumpkin maca pie which tasted just as though it were a slab of grandma’s thanksgiving pumpkin pie, and of course one of their chewy chocolate chip cookies.
Whether you’re looking for that quick grab-and-go dish or a protein packed smoothie, Beaming has got you covered. In addition to their café selections, Beaming also has several juice cleanses serving different needs. With locations popping up in Los Angeles (Century City is next!), Beaming is living up to their success in keeping both quality, healthful ingredients as well as keeping those tastebuds happy.
