The Plant will keep everyone happy for lunch. Sandwiches, smoothies, salads, quinoa bowls - the good-for-you gang’s all here. And the gang is organic. The FiDi location has lots of seats inside or a professional to-go operation if your lunch break is more of a lunch sprint. The dino kale salad, chicken avocado sandwich, and Full Belly Bowl are our favorites.
