great easy accessible place for lunch on the go - Edit

An easy centrally located eatery to grab a quick but filling lunch. A little expensive but you get huge portions and a bread roll too. They add each topping as you wish, each topping costs. It would be better if they separated the meat and cheese completely from the veggies and salad but they seem pretty on top of standards so I'd be surprised if any food was accidentally mixed. I eat here for lunch whenever I am in Nice as it's so easy. Vegan toppings include spinach broccoli lentils chickpeas beans quinoa cous cous avocado green beans and then your usual salad pieces.

Pros: vegan protein (lentils chickpeas beans etc), huge portions , central location

Cons: expensive, food could be easily mixed but never experienced a

A "Nice" place for a salad - Edit

The SO Green gives you the option to create you a individual salad. You can choose between different basic salads like leaf lettuce, Quinoa and so on. The basic salad can be combines with different dressings und at last, you can add many different ingredients like Nuts, Mushrooms, and so on. Every ingredients cost extra. That can make the salad quite expensive, but you get a big the portion. As Nice is not so cheap, the Price is okay.
The salad is fresh, but they use too much dressing. All in all, it was tasty.

They have a nice outdoor seating. Unfortunately, they yous a lot of plastic. But a good thing ist, that they don't waste a lot of food. After your meal, there come a lot Doves, eating everything that's left.

Pros: outdoor seating, big the portion, Doves

Cons: plastic, too much dressing

Healthy fresh vegetable juices - Edit

The vegetable juices are prepared freshly right in front of your eyes. I first had the "So Green veggie juice" with apple, celery, and cucumber, which was pleasant to drink because it didn´t taste "too healthy." When I came back on another occasion, the juice with ginger, carrot, and celery wasn´t properly blended and it took me some time to get used to it due to the overpowering taste of ginger.

Updated from previous review on 2017-04-20

Pros: freshly prepared vegetable juices, juice menu also in English

Cons: expensive, plastic cups & straws, not organic, not completely vegan

Buone insalate - Edit

Il locale è dotato di un ampio dehor dove si può mangiare, nella centrale piazza Massena.
Un po' caro...

On Place Massena at the border between the Old Town and the main shopping street. Tables outside - getting a salad is self-service, but you can order drinks &c from a waiter.

Friendly staff.

Choose your own ingredients (prices vary from €0.50 to €2.00 per item on top of a €4.50 salad base) and a dressing. Mine came to €10.00 including a bread roll. Large bowl. Food seemed fresh and decent quality.

Pros: Choose your own ingredients, Large portion, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive

Expensive but delicious - Edit

The salads are customizable, but every topping costs extra and it can add up fast. However, they are delicious and refreshing the Niçois heat!

Smoothies/juices are 5€. The "So Green" veggie juice (apple, celery, cucumber) is light, nutritious and refreshing. The "Vitamix" juice (banana, orange, strawberry) is a sweeter pick-me-up. Both were great!

Pros: refreshing, healthy option

Cons: expensive

Great find for vegans - Edit

This is a good restaurant for vegans because you get to mix and match your very own salad, so there will be nothing in it that you don't want to!

It's located at Place Massena, so it's very central and close to the main shopping street and the Promenade des Anglais. Upon entering, there are two counters, one for the salad and one for drinks. The latter one is also where you pay. You can choose a base for the salad, such as green salad or rice. Then you can choose more ingredients. There are many options, many of them meat or dairy, but also many vegan ones: Corn, artichokes, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, raisins... In the end you can also choose your dressing, such as olive oil.
There are also many fresh juices and smoothies to choose from. I had a ginger mango juice which was very good. My salad also tasted very well and was much more filling than I had expected! In fact I couldn't even finish it!

Service was very friendly and staff speak good English, in case you struggle with the French names of all those veggies...

The only downside is that I find it a bit expensive. The base of the salad is 4,50€, which is totally ok, and the other ingredients you add cost extra, between 1,50€ and 2,00€. I think 2,00€ for a handful of sliced zucchini is a bit much. Like this, the money really adds up and in the end, your salad could be more expensive than you expected. The juice is also quite expensive, costing 5,00€.
On the other hand, the location is simply perfect and restaurants in Nice are quite expensive in general, so I still recommend a visit here if you are looking for a quick and easy vegan lunch in the centre of Nice!

Pros: Very good mix and match system, Fantastic location, Friendly staff who speak English

Cons: A bit expensive for a salad, Serves meat
