Very busy, long lines on weekends for breakfast. Friendly service, flexible--will make substitutions and custom sandwiches, omelets, etc. I always like to support restaurants who serve local and organic foods.

I stopped here for breakfast after the suggestion of a coworker. It's at a very convenient location in downtown Asheville and very easy to find. I had the Buddha Bowl with two two fried eggs over the top. It didn't look like a lot of food and certainly had an unusual appearance, but all the flavors blended together in a... More

... but no, it was badly burnt. Some mechanical problems caused delays, which is excusable. But, the blandness of the food, which tasted prefabricated, is not. Friendly staff, but you have to get the coffee right if you call yourself a cafe. Yes, the grass drinks tasted ok, nothing special.

Came on a Thursday morning right after they opened. The service was great and all the staff were very friendly. The food was also very good, and I think you get to plenty of food for your money. The menu had a huge variety, and there were a lot of vegetarian/vegan options. Would definitely come back

This cafe is fantastic! The menu has a great selection for health aware or just plain "foodies". We visited for breakfast. Portions are flexible so guests can select based on their appetite. It is cafeteria style. The staff is very pleasant. Going back again today.:-). Might have to try it for dinner the next time in town.

I visited Asheville and remembered this restaurant from before. I stilled loved it. It's a small cafe. You order and then seat yourself. Everyone in my group loved their food. Great vegetarian and vegan options and healthy options for the meat lover in the group. I absolutely love their lemon gingerade. It was a little strong for my brother in... More

Excellent food, flavorful Buddha Bowl, dishes every member of the family liked, lots of options for clean eating. Staff just okay, but food more than makes up for it...it is cafe style after all.

Enjoyed another visit to Greensage in downtown Asheville, this time with my husband for brunch. Tried the Farmer's Omelet. The root hash is one of the best sides I have ever had for a breakfast meal. Ingredients are very fresh and locally sourced. Every time I eat here I leave feeling so clean, healthy and energized. The location is convenient... More

My friends and I hit Asheville for a girlfriends' getaway. We ate at Green Sage on Saturday morning and loved it so much we came back on Sunday! With a gluten-free girl and a veggie lover in the group, it hit the mark for all of us. They serve fresh pressed juices, smoothies and a great selection of vegan options.... More
