Delightful!

Oh the little places you will find. I love their albacore tuna in a sandwich, preferably well done with a spinach hazelnut salad. Their cowboy cookies are a sinful delight. I like how the dining room attendants will ask to refill your beverage, which is super nice. The staff are all smart and... read more

This was a pleasant surprise. The meals were very tasty, light and well portioned. This would be a nice place for a quick lunch or dinner. I wish we had discovered it earlier in the trip

Busy place at lunch time but the line moves fast! The oriental salad was just right with the nuts and dressing wasn't overwhelming. Great options for healthy eaters.

I order my meals here to go. Incredible healthy food and lots of interesting choices. It's just that the restaurant has so many fans the line can get very long, and you may not find seating. I bypass that by calling my order in and picnicking with it in the many parks and galleries nearby. If you call your order... More

In a maze of old Navi or Marine Barracks, organic food us served in a semi self-serviced canteen. You choose your menu at the entrance, and watch the chefs pick the ingredients for your meal' 4 out of 5, for the plates not being heated, and/or the meat being served demi-chaud.

Went there with coworkers for lunch and was delighted to get so much more than a salad. In the heart of historic liberty station the atmosphere is inviting and the staff is friendly. The salads are packed with fantastic blend of fresh ingredients. The Chinese salad is bursting with texture and flavor. Wash it down with a hibiscus tea and... More

What a mound of Butter Leaf lettuce on my plate! I ordered the Backyard Steak Salad. It was wonderful. Meat cooked to perfection. Very little carbs. Also ordered Cheese tray with 4 very different cheeses. Toast included with tray and dinner. Delicious stuff.

This is a cafeteria style restaurant where you move down the line after ordering. However, the best cafeteria in town. I am hooked on this place. The harvest salad with the chicken is my favorite. The chicken is so juicy and the salad so fresh. I do not live in the area and go out of my way to find... More

The concept of fresh & healthy is wonderful even if the kitchen did put two big slices of bread on both Gluten Free salads. Sigh! Pleasant patio but jet planes pass very close overhead frequently, making conversation tricky.
