We were recommended to go here by a local. The queue was out of the door, but it moved really quickly. You order at the counter, then as you move down towards the tills you can see it all being put together. The food was a choice of fabulous salads, plus meat / fish / veggies - also delicious. Not cheap, but great value considering the quality and freshness of the food.

I wrote a longer review a couple of days ago but not sure why it wasn't published? Anyway will just do a short one this time in case it happens again...we basically agree with all other five star reviews. Think the whole philosophy of this place is great and wish we had similar in Australia. We went here for both dinner and lunch while in Santa Monica for 5 nights. Staff were happy for us to share one large plate for lunch. Coffee is also great. Even though no kids menu there are lots of things most kids would enjoy ( or could be encouraged to enjoy) and there are some lovely desserts. We had the plum and apple tart - delicious!

We saw a young woman eating a salad on a bench near the beach and it looked so good we needed to know where she got it!
Ended up with a delicious salad! I had the vegetarian salad and loved it.
My daughter had a salad with fruit in it!
We both enjoyed the ice tea!
Wish this restaurant was on MA!!

This place is great. The food is always fresh and yammy and what is the most important it is afordable:). And it is just a block from the Ocean and Third Street Promenade. The only thing that I don't like is their desserts.

I have to say that the founders of Tender Greens know how to please you. They respect your need for good, healthy food by providing high quality food, while respecting your daily budget with keeping the prices at an affordable costs, AND on top of that, they know we live in a fast paced society, so they are fast! Unlike most other organic restaurants or cafes in downtown Santa Monica, Tender Greens is for everyone and anyone who wants to eat healthy organic food, in 45 minutes for less than $15. Oh and public parking is free for up to two hours right next door. Seriously, you can't go wrong with this business model. My husband and I frequently go to TG Santa Monica, but there are other ones around town as well.
