With only a few days left in Philly for the semester, I decided to try it tonight... and I'm so glad I did. The restaurant was very bright and open; the decor was modern and nature-based, with a lot of bright green and trees on the walls; the servers were so friendly and upbeat; and the variety of Paleo-approved ingredients was amazing. Primarily a salad restaurant (though you can get wraps, fro-yo, and soup as well), I had a feeling that I was going to love this place.
I decided to go for the "make-your-own" salad, and got baby spinach with hearts of palm, avocado, roasted chicken, hard-boiled egg, bacon, strawberries, and toasted almonds with extra virgin olive oil. For the avocado, they actually scoop it out in front of you; for the hard-boiled egg, they slice one up right there. The price for such fresh and healthy ingredients was extremely reasonable, especially given the size and awesome taste of the salad. Combined with great service and a hip, inviting atmosphere, I will definitely be eating there again! So if you're in an area with a Sweetgreen, I highly recommend it-- it doesn't get much more Paleo than 100% real, natural ingredients!
