I absolutely loved this place! It was quick, the food was delicious and healthy and price was reasonable! Did I mention it was delicious as well? I ordered the Mexicali Bowl and it was yummy. The staff was very friendly and the location is unbeatable.

Clean, organized, appealing so we ventured in. We had bowls, both pesto one chicken one tofu. Good flavor and taste. Quinoa was fluffy. Price was reasonable. The observation room for improvement was light on tofu and chicken. Good menu options will be back.

Easy walk up 7th from the National Gallery of Art. Quick healthy lunch and I'm right back to the museum. The wrap was terrific and everyone else's lunch did too. I'll be back later for a protein smoothie.

It's tough to find a good spot for lunch around the Mall in DC. There's lots of street vendors serving junk or ethnic restaurants with unusual dishes. We tried Protein Bar and had a nice lunch. The menu is a bit limited with some salads...More

Ate lunch here while in DC. They offer 3 types of food: protein bowls, salads, and wraps. Food is very healthy and tasty - I had the Verde protein bowl which had a nice spicy tang. If you're looking for healthier fare, I would recommend...More
