We’ve got more heart than lettuce. More juice than any tapioca. Sometimes a little spicy, but always cool. Sprout is all about fresh ideas mixed with the best ingredients that will leave any taste bud wanting more. It’s about the idea that gourmet doesn’t mean top dollar. It’s the healthier, cost-conscious part of you that is just waiting to get out—all in a friendly environment.

When we went to the cashier, she said we said asked for it. When we get it back, it was the same sandwich with a bite in it and added cheese.We ordered a salad off the menu and received … More
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"by Rebecca S. at Yelp User Review3/13/2014Updating my review and it still stands at 3 stars.
