On a recent trip to Suburban Square in good ol' Ardmore, PA, I noticed a new and exciting storefront standing out against all the others that would normally only interest Main Line Moms. The boyfriend and I checked it out, and instantly made plans to return after spring break when we found out that sweet green was an organic, mostly locally-sourced salad and froyo restaurant. During our first meal there, we found out that not only are they into great, healthy food, but they also provide compostable containers and utensils for literally everything they give out in the store. Their furniture and decorations are made from reclaimed wood, several of their stores use solar power... what's not to love?
The food is excellent, also. You can create your own masterpiece or let the restaurant do the creating for you. Today I sampled the Chic P salad (pronounced Sheek-Pee, ooh la la!), which is a vegan salad featuring "mesclun and baby spinach with baked falafel, chickpeas, cucumbers, fresh peppers, pita chips; topped with a lemon hummus tahini dressing." I added some feta cheese for a kick. They also give you delicious bread, and have a nice selection of drinks available (lemonade, HonesTea, and a BOYLAN'S SODA FOUNTAIN!) The whole meal rings in around 650 calories! Very healthy and super filling!
