Eclectic, friendly, delicious. Should be everyone's "must-stop" for earthy, local, fresh salads and entrees. Try everything.

Tree huggers and cave people both will find and enjoy a good meal at a reasonable price. Fun poking around the Market Square area. The entrance is actually on Wall St., but call if you can't find it and Elliot will bring you in...

Whatever you order at least try their juices. They are freshly made with flavors consisting of carrots blended with apple, ginger and lemons or spinach with pineapple and ginger plus so many other choices. Food was good too! Good for vegans/vegetarians and non - vegetarian. Service is excellent. Very helpful waitstaff. Casual with seating in or outside.

Every time we're in Roanoke, we have to stop for another dining experience at Firefly Fare. Located downtown in the historic City Market Building in Market Square, Firefly hosts two restaurant seatings from the same kitchen. On one side is their take-out counter which is located in Roanoke's downtown Market Square. You walk up, place your order, then take it to an informal table located right there in the Market.

On the opposite side, but sharing the same kitchen, is the more formal side of Firefly's dining, where you sit at a nice table, full-service. There is also outside off-sidewalk dining which is lovely on a cool day.

I would classify this dining experience as "Urban Cuisine", where you may choose from a healthy menu such as vegetarian dishes, jambalaya, tofu, delicious pita sandwiches, wraps, and healthy dishes such as The Incan Bowl (black beans, sweet potatoes, grilled corn, quinoa & jasmine rice blend), fruit and veggie smoothies (you watch them stuffing whole veggies, etc. right into the blender), soups and light bakery items.

What you don't want to miss, however, is their falafel sandwich, complete with tzatziki (yogurt + cucumber) sauce. This is served with a side of your choice. It's my favorite item on their menu and a l m o s t as good as those served in New York City. Almost.

I believe I'm correct in saying that Firefly obtains much of their food from local farms.

You can't go wrong at Firefly if you like 'healthy'.
