Salads, warm bowls and more in Old Town Alexandria.

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 range between $10 and $20 depending on how many premium add-ins (goodies like hard boiled eggs, roasted chicken and warm portabello 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 - you can preorder or just come in prepared for all the great options you'll have to choose from.
