Greenleaf Gourmet Chop Shop

234 E. 17th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627-3832 | Costa Mesa | 949-200-3950

Location Description:

Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop has made a name for itself in making salads people actually want to eat. It also specializes in food that isn't going to put on the pounds or give you diabetes. Try the Lemongrass Chicken Salad in particular. You'll feel good about yourself. Perhaps it’s because the restaurant is designed to validate your dietary decision to eat there. There’s a working garden outside and non-HFCS soda dispensed in the drink fountains. The place looks like a log cabin built by hipsters. Healthy ones.
