Didn't get enough of the "green" so had to ask for some extra salad and then they drowned this little green salad with a truckload of "sweet" sugared dressing...How to ruin a salad in 2 seconds. At least I found out what the brand name...More

I had the lobster roll, with 2 different types of fresh greens and fruit juices. Both were very good. Prices as expected are a little higher than you would pay for fast food but worth the difference.

When you are travelling you can get over eating out every day. This was a fresh little surprise. Great salads and fresh bread, what more could you want. The only downside is that they don’t accept cash.

Simple concept, pick your salad ingredients or choose from their recommended mixes. Their fresh baked bread only adds to the salad experience.

The sell mediocre salads (Chopt is much better), but you cannot pay with cash which is illegal. Currency is legal tender and poor people may not be able to get credit cards.

Fresh, delicious, made to order (or chose a warm or cold standard). Loved this! Salad was huge (dinner and lunch the next day). Note - they do not take cash at the one we went to on Wisconsin. Go here once before you leave DC.

sweetgreen is a destination for simple, seasonal, healthy food. We believe the choices we make every day about what we eat, where it comes from, and how it's made have a lasting impact on our communities. From the seed to the store, we're involved in every step of the supply chain, working with partners and farmers we know and trust. We make our food from scratch in each sweetgreen every day, using whole produce delivered that morning. As sweetgreen grows, we're dedicated to working with the right people. We've built a family of 1,500 hardworking individuals who care about developing future leaders and live our core values daily. We meet farmers before we meet landlords. We turn our new neighbors into friends. We're building a brand that connects to local neighborhoods and leaves communities better off than we found them. Our vision is to change the way people live their lives, starting with how they think about food.
