Sweet Green review


Sustainability, animal welfare and transparency is what Sweetgreen is all about. The eco-conscious restaurant chain focuses on a farm-to-table experience for customers. The chain began in 2007 after a group of friends realized that their community was lacking a healthy restaurant. After getting all of the foundations for construction and meals set, they reached out to local farmers. The founders went to lots of farmers markets and farmers at their stands. That was the start of new relationships and connections for Sweetgreen.

Since 2007, all of these connections have grown, and help in keeping all their ingredients locally sourced. Sweet green specializes in salads and soups, with each season throughout the year bringing new flavors and ideas. A salad called Guacamole Greens was the one I ordered when I went to the Sweet Green in Mosaic. It is made with assorted greens, onion, tortilla chips, avocado, lime, roasted chicken and a cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette. It was a pretty good salad but the salad was slightly dry.

You can also choose to make your own salad. You choose what type of greens, toppings,proteins and dressing you want and they make it for you. It’s a good choice for anyone with allergies or who is super picky. Another great aspect of the restaurant are their freshly made drinks. Teas, pressed juice, house-made lemonades and many more beverages are available, and also change seasonally. The prices are slightly high for the amount of food you receive, but the taste is worth it. 

Sweetgreen is a great place to go with friends or family to grab a healthy bite to eat. I liked the food a lot, and I’ll be coming back for sure. The location in Mosaic is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
