    One of the cleanest diners I’ve ever visited! My tree hugging, ocean loving arse loved every inch of the space. The food was awesome! The staff were all super sweet. The Buffalo crunch dog was my favorite. I’ll definitely be back to try more items.

    Great customer service. Food is amazing and very inexpensive!

    Pictured is the Buffalo crunchy dog, kimchi Ruben, chili cheese fries.

    Amazing wouldn’t change a single item. Tempeh on the Ruben was amazing.

    Had NO idea this place was so cute inside! Forgot to take photos of the food, but it was equally wonderful. I had the lentil patty cheeseburger and it was really good. It held up really well and didn’t fall apart, and had a really yummy flavor to it. It was also a very decent portion with the fries for $10. I do wish the fries were seasoned a little more, but I liked the way they were cooked. Our server was really kind and let us take our time, explaining the menu and their favorite items. I want to come back and try their crunchy dogs next – a soy frank covered in corn flakes, and also the soup. I liked that it felt like a more modern diner inside and they played on diner food to make it vegan. Meals are all $15 or less. Hibiscus tea was refreshing. Overall a great experience.

    Was in town for work with my friend whose a vegan. I always look up the best spots in town and found this place. It did not disappoint.

    The staff was super friendly and the diner was cool. The food was delicious. Every dish was unique and flavorful. This is a must stop if you’re in the area

    Had a great meal here! Great service, great food! My favorite was the Buffalo tempeh sandwich with fried plantains! Wish it was a little spicier, but I really enjoyed it and the jerk sauce that came with the plantains was incredible!! We also got a hot dog and a brown rice tortilla wrap, both of which were good. Highly recommend, we will be back!

    One of my favorite lunch places in Wilmington!! The original chicken salad, toasted on white bread is my favorite. I got pasta salad but I’ve also had the Mac and cheese as well as the broccoli salad. All really amazing options!! Love the pickles here too and the cookie tops off this perfect meal!! I would highly recommend Chicken Salad Chick and a warning that this place is addicting!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Roxie Ballard (Celliegirl) (6 months ago)
    Never knew chicken salad could come in so many flavor options. This place surprised me in a positive way. There are many several salad choices from fruity to spicy, side options, desserts and if you are watching carbs or not in the mood for a sandwich you can get the chicken salad on lettuce instead of a bread or croissant. Decent prices and a healthier choice.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Not Available (3 months ago)
    I’m impressed! Three of us had lunch the other day. Our friend suggested this place. I’m glad we went, as it was our first time there. Our friend told us the chicken salad was the best in the area.

    Right outside the door was an advertisement for poblano soup, which was a limited time offer. I had to try it!

    We checked out the menu and I decided on the savory Lauryn’s Lemon Basil scoop with a side of the poblano soup. The fruity and nutty chicken salads sounded too sweet for my taste.

    You order at the counter and take a number to your table where the staff delivers your food. The place has a Southern home feel, which I really liked.

    The soup was excellent, creamy but not heavy, with chicken, diced peppers, corn, black beans and lime juice. Really flavorful and delicious. The chicken salad was wonderful with the basil and lemon flavor throughout. You can taste that it was fresh-made.

    One friend ordered the Classic Carol as a sandwich and the same soup; and my other friend ordered the Fruity Fran with a side of grape salad. They loved their lunch too. My friend with the sandwich said it was too big so the next time, she’ll go with a scoop and side.

    With our meal, everyone is given a complimentary mini buttercream cookie. What a nice touch. All of this for just under $10. A real bargain!!!

    This place has daily soup specials with two choices each day. I’d like to go back on a Saturday to try their Chicken Artichoke Florentine.

    My friends and I are happy to know that they are opening a new location in Leland where we live! We won’t have to drive the distance once it opens.

    *Update* Hubby’s birthday.. a little less satisfied this time (from 6 months ago) but enjoyed stopping in to grab to go. The execution of food was slightly less satisfactory than other times.

    Thanks for a birthday lunch 😁
    Not as flavorful as Cary location, but undeniably tasty! Polite service. Also noticed the layout! 👍👍✅

    ✭✭✭✭ By Tyre TradeWinds (7 months ago)
    I’m so glad this is around the corner from where I live. The Chick deal is delicious and a great deal at only $9. I will be sure to be back to try all the flavors. There’s like 10 so it might take awhile but there’s definitely a flavor for everyone. Fruity, savory, BBQ or spicy. Awesome

    My husband and I visited for the first time about 2 weeks ago. We live out of town and are planning another trip just to come back. We had the chili cheese fries, I ordered the trash burger, add pickles. Was phenomenal. Had to eat with a knife and fork. Beetroot ketchup is a delightful surprise. He had the gyro (had previously seen a Reuben on the menu and was planning for that, but we missed it, hope they bring it back). He loved the gyro and pasta salad. We only have one (very new) all vegan restaurant where we live so we enjoy exploring other cities and their options. This is a new favorite. Will be back very soon!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Dannielle Fullerton (3 months ago)
    Love this place! The vegan food is amazing! We live in Myrtle Beach, but sometimes drive to Wilmington for a day trip just for lunch or dinner here. The servers are even great and friendly! We accidentally left our to go boxes and the server ran out to our car to give them to us.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Brittney Christian (a year ago)
    This is THE best vegan restaurant in the area, and it might be the BEST restaurant overall, too. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, the food is sublime, and they brew their own Kombucha and beers, which are fresh and delicious! We go at least once a week and sometimes more! If you can make it for brunch on Sundays, you will not be disappointed.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Christopher Smith (7 months ago)
    Stumbled upon this place while visiting Wilmington. Their vegan food was amazing!! Even my carnivorous husband like it so much we drive the 1.5 hour drive to go back the next weekend. The artichoke dip and homemade veggie burgers were top notch.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By happy inreno (9 months ago)
    It’s the first all vegan brewery I’ve ever visited. What a great niche: great beer, flavorful, healthy eating, and even multiple flavors of in house kombucha (alcohol or non alcohol). The flavors change regularly and on this night I went with the cranberry-grape. We sat at a table in the back room since there was live music- a talented singing guitar player. The best vegan burger ever! The menu describes it as plant & grain based – so good. We started with the plant-based chili cheese fries that came with this unique homemade ranch. The side salad I ordered with my burger was practically 1/2 a meal in itself. There was way too much food for just the two of us. In fact, I put the untouched fresh salad in a to-go box and a separate to-go box for half the fries. Our waitress Carleigh was very helpful providing insight into the various menu options, beer, and kombucha. Here’s the kicker – even non-vegans will enjoy the all vegan menu options especially after a few pints. Kid friendly.

    The bowls and smoothies were good. It was crowded but we were able to order quickly. I’m a big fan of the selection and fresh ingredients.
    Our bowl arrived quickly but the smoothies were all forgotten. We had to remind the staff for each one that was missing. We ended up staying an extra 40 minutes waiting.
    The Acai Bowl was so good, everyone wanted it for breakfast the next day. Order went much quicker. The day before must have been an off day.
    ✭✭✭✭ By J Willy (4 months ago)
    If you are craving Açai bowl, this is the place for it. They serve variety of bowls. I ordered the Nutelloco coconut and pacific green bowls. Both bowls tasted very delicious. I loved how they made them look exactly like the pictures. Highly recommended it.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By SailSky Fatima (5 months ago)
    Very relaxing, chill environment inside. The decor is simple yet fun. A lot of menu options. Ordered the Acai Energy smoothie, no wonder its a top pick! Very delicious.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Adam (a year ago)
    This was my first time ordering. I usually go to Kalethy Living. The bowls from Playa are better and bigger. Paid a premium to have this delivered to down town Wilmington via DD. The bowl was delicious and still icy cold when it arrived. My only complaint is that I paid for extra peanut butter and did not receive it. Otherwise it would have been perfection.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Miss Perry (a month ago)
    Best açaí bowls in Wilmington! My favorite is the Stupid Cupid. Bowls range from 10-13 normally. Worth the price, and preferred to the cold stone next door! Love the monthly stickers too!

    Tried it for the first time today, staff was friendly, kind, gregarious, charismatic – all of the above! Food was very reasonably priced I got one of the wraps on the menu. I was expecting flavor to be left to be desired because of the low-calorie healthy philosophy but boy was I wrong. Sweet potato fries and the Tomato Basil Chicken Wrap (think it’s called the “watch your waist wrap”) were excellent, fresh, hot exactly what I wanted. It was honestly better than had I gone to another eatery in town to get the same item. Will definitely be back again and potentially will try the meal prep options they have on a weekly basis. Would definitely recommend!!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Grant Gausman (5 months ago)
    First time here. Loved the food. I had the Bison Burger with Sweet Potato Waffle fries. Burger was spot on with some nicely diced pineapple and I had it Teriyaki style. Very good. “LIV” the cook was awesome. Hope to go back soon. Was visiting from out of town. I would love reg potato fries but not on menu. Drinks were healthy!
    ✭✭✭✭ By Eddie Edwards (a year ago)
    The food was good. Not amazing but I’d definitely eat there again. I ordered a bowl with a kale and quinoa base and there was a lot of rice in it instead of quinoa… and it didn’t even look like brown rice but I’m not sure about that… I’ll definitely ask them about that before I order it again…
    ✭✭✭✭ By R Blank (a month ago)
    My wife got the Philly flatbread and I got the bacon chicken ranch flatbread (both with veggie sides). Food tasted pretty bland and the veggie cup came with a nasty green sauce (Jacksonville gives ranch) and seems a little more pricey than the one in Jacksonville, NC. Felt cramped inside. I probably wouldn’t go back if given the opportunity, the Jacksonville store seems more flavorful and more organized. Just my opinion.
    ✭✭ By Ryan Edenton (3 months ago)
    Went around 2:30 and waited quite a while to order. A salad and cauli bites took around 15 minutes and was not good. Salad was very small and chicken & cauli bites lacked flavor. Missing a dressing. Would not go back.
