We particularly love this place because it is an allergy friendly place. Being Dairy free, Gluten free, & Soy free can make it difficult to find "fast food". All allergies are listed next to every item so that you are fully aware of what is in each salad. Besides salads, they have coffee/chai, yogurt parfait, and pastries. This is our "go-to" place
