About Us

Active Culture is a lively, counter service café founded on the belief that healthy food can taste amazing! We use whole grains, local organic eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, and unique sauces or dressings that are made from scratch, in-house daily. Our fresh spin on a vegetable forward menu is unlike anything out there often satisfying those non-believers. We have put extensive thought and care into our menu items to create unique delicious foods that will fuel your body and soul.

If you are vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, soy-free, raw, cleansing or simply looking for great tasting food that is not over processed or filled with chemicals, dyes or hydrogenated oils then you have come to the right place!

Inside Our Kitchen

Why the OG Obsession?

Simply put, it’s our signature sauce. Many have tried to guess it, many have begged for it, but the recipe for our OG Sauce remains a secret. OG stands for Organic Goodness, and it’s made from scratch, in-house daily using only the freshest ingredients. It’s vibrant color and burst of flavor is the perfect finish to our most popular dish—the Wholesome Bowl.

Homemade Organic Almond Milk

It’s vegan. It’s organic. It’s simple. And it’s delicious! Every day our blenders are working on overdrive to make our fresh homemade almond milk. We use it as the base for most of our shakes, including the most popular one—the Naked Coconut Shake.
