eatsa brings the classic automat concept into the digital age. Imagine a huge vending machine with a lobby serving up steaming, healthy quinoa bowls from bright, friendly Star Trek-looking cubbies. There’s only an attendant to guide the uninitiated through the sci-fi process. Human-to-human interaction is minimized at eatsa. The automated atmosphere requires zero interaction with employees. It’s a retro concept powered by 21st-century tech. This is fast food San Francisco-style.
The modern-day automat at eatsa doesn’t take nickels! Better yet, an app you can easily download to your phone makes ordering a snap. Melissa Sims raves on Google Reviews, “I love eatsa, it’s my go-to lunch spot, and the app makes ordering a breeze. I like that I can customize my order and see the nutrition information easily.”

The food defies expectations. James A., from Oakland, yelps, “To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from what appeared to be an overpriced salad bar but I was wrong. My salad was delicious, filling and also just very unique.”
