Similar in setup to the standard “Subway” shop, Sweetgreen lets you customize your own salad with a variety of toppings, greens, and of course salad dressings. The variety of farm-fresh produce that you can choose from is well worth the price of $10 per salad, and the incredible selection of healthy drinks is enough to keep your thirst satisfied.  One of our favorites is their ever-rotating selection of specialty lemonades (hibiscus, blueberry-basil and fresh watermelon!).
