“Yum and awesome! Listen to the staff recs!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Loved this place! Friendly staff made great recommendation for my first time there: the Happy Vegan salad is the bomb! And I'm not even vegan. Definitely coming back to this or one of their sister locations when I'm in CA. Yum and awesome!

“California fresh”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Exactly the type of "fast food" I want while visiting California. It's apparently a chain in the L.A. area, and I wish they would expand out east. Would love a place like this near my office!! Super fresh, healthy and delicious salads, sandwiches and platters. My group tried the grilled octopus and albacore tuna salads. Lots of yummy veggies, grilled bread and side order of foccaccia bread was delicious. Of course, we also sampled some of the baked goods for dessert. Yummy as well (although I doubt they were as healthy as our main dishes!). Nice courtyard for dining, and the whole operation runs smoothly even with a line out the door.

“Delicious and Fresh”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

What a great idea for a restaurant! Choose the fresh and healthy meal you want then grab a seat in the spotlessly clean dining room and enjoy your meal. This place is packed and yet it runs smoothly and the wait is surprisingly short. Wish we had one near our house!

“Great salad!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

I had a pastrami salad and it was delicious! It only took a while on the line to order it, but the line went fast. The service is good and the food is very fresh!
Loved it!
