Is this high-tech eatery the future of dining?

With its minimalistic interior, Eatsa is a fully-automated cafeteria with no human interaction.

No lines. No cashier. No nonsense. We’re engineered to get you in and out fast. This is, in short, the concept of Eatsa, a newly opened fast-food restaurant in San Francisco. Making quinoa the star of its menu, this eatery takes pride in serving fresh and nutritious food, but with zero human interaction.

There are no cues, since guests order their food on an in-store touch screens and pay electronically. In less than two minutes, their name comes up on a transparent LCD screen boxand their made-to-order bowl is ready to go. Since all orders are taken through this system, previous orders are saved, which makes ordering much faster.

“Eatsa is reinventing fast food by combining the speed and affordability of fast food with the nutritious ingredients,” says Tim Young, co-founder of Eatsa. “By developing new technology to automate every aspect of the food experience, we are able to deliver a product with the best qualities of premium fast casual at a price point that is accessible to everyone.”

With its minimalistic and modern design – and a fleet of iPad kiosks – innovation and smart technologies are the main ingredients of Eatsa’s interior. This high-tech cafeteria could easily fit for an episode of The Jetsons, however, there is no doubt that Eatsa redefines the concept of “fast food” and (un)necessary interactions by offering a glimpse into the future.
