If you crave a salad without meat and stuff, this is the place to go in New Orleans! There's always a line, but the salads are definitely worth it. I think the price is quite high for the area, but the ingredients are fresh and you can customize your salad. Once again, i hate that i can't give a place a 5 point rating, just because it's not completely vegan/vegetarian...
We had quinoa, kale and corn salad, and an avocado hummus wrap with tofu: both were quite good, and there was a good sear on the grilled tofu, but it was underseasoned. The fresh watermelon juice was delicious.Pros: variety of fresh juices, to-go and quick options , they gave us free carrot/ginger soup
Cons: the staff was noisy, inattentive
Stayed 2 nights in New Orleans, ate here 2 times. A beautiful way to serve salad and wraps. Order a set salad/wrap or make your own choice of ingredients. Vegan friendly, for sure.
You'll probably not be the only one wanting to get your lunch at city greens, so, if possible, avoid rush hours.
Cons: ..., many customers, ...
Folded paper menu at counter has guide to vegan options, can sub/add grilled tofu to all options. In a big building, guessing its lunch crowd are the office folk upstairs. Hearty salads and wraps, can build your own, in addition to their menu. Kombucha and coconut water among their drink options.
Fast and courteous staff. Probably not acceptable for people with allergies, as they use the same utensils to mix things up, and looks like there's a lot of opportunity for cross contamination in the ingredients area. Felt like I was in a cross between an Eco-McDonalds and a Subway:). Wasn't bad, but I don't know if I'd go out of my way to eat there again. But a perfectly acceptable place if you're in a rush and in the neighborhood!
Cons: busy downtown lunch crowd
