We’ve heard wonders about this restaurant, so we braved the cold today to visit Crisp & Green, a healthy made-to-order restaurant with two locations in the Minneapolis area. We visited the Wayzata location, and boy did we love it!
The outside of the restaurant is absolutely adorable, and the inside was just as cute!
The thing that got us so excited about Crisp and Green was how natural, organic and (mostly) paleo friendly their food is. After visiting, we can say that the food tastes as good as it looks. Literally all of their food is good for you, and tastes good too.
Here’s what we got:
- Vegan Squash Soup (Ingredients: Roasted Squash, Red Curry, Coconut Milk, and Pumpkin Seeds. Cost: $4.75)
- Feelin’ Falafel (A signature salad made of: Kale, Mixed Greens, Herbed Felafel, Feta, Hummus, Cucumber, Tomatoes, and an optional Cucumber Tahini Yogurt Dressing. Cost: $10.50)
- Agua Frescas (Fresh, Fruit-infused Water with an agave nectar. Ours was Strawberry Hibiscus flavored, but we also loved the Pineapple-Ginger one! Cost: $2.50)
They also have smoothies, grain bowls, seasonal items, kombucha on tap, and so much more! You can check out their menu here.
Not all of their food is paleo, but the majority is. I felt safe eating here and didn’t have to worry about cross-contamination the way I usually do at restaurants, which was nice!
Our entire meal cost $17.50 (we weren’t really hungry and just split a meal) so it’s on the expensive side of made-to-order places. However, the food is delicious and the healthiness of it makes the price worth it in our opinion.
They have a great (and super aesthetically pleasing!) website, which you can check out here
