Salads, warm bowls and more in DC's Foggy Bottom neighborhood.

Motivated by sustainability, and with all elements of your meal prepared from scratch, you can feel confident feeding yourself and your children at this rapidly growing chain. The menu changes to use foods that are in season, and there are curated salads and warm bowls with a quinoa base, as well as the option to create your own. There is no specific kids menu, but a variety of ingredients that appeal to most children.

Salads and bowls run between $10 and $20 depending on how many premium add-ins (goodies like hard boiled eggs, roasted chicken and warm portobello mushrooms cost extra) you desire to add, with fresh bread and a range of delicious dressings included complementary with your meal. You can create your own salad or bowl assembly line style or choose from their premade and seasonal menu. Drinks like kombucha and craft sodas are available to quench your thirst, keeping with the craft and local ethos of the chain.

Each space is unique, designed with the individual location and building in mind, but they are all clean, bright and airy. Download the app for optimum convenience. This location is super accessible, it is right next to the Foggy Bottom-GWU metro stop. 

If you're looking for something really fun to do on a hot day, grab a picnic lunch at sweetgreen and bring it with you to Francis Pool! It's about a ten minute walk from this location. There is even a special kiddie pool for your little ones! About fifteen minutes walk in the other direction is the National Geographic Museum, a great place to spend your afternoons with older kids.
