Love the burrito and the smoothies. Extremely popular and busy at lunch but they hustle pretty good and worth the short wait

Came here early today for a Lean Green kale and ginger and etc etc very nice juice smoothie. That and the people working there caused me to know I was coming back for a healthy light gluten free plant based dinner. I got the quinoa kale bean with peppers a gluten free wrap. A few corn chips and some spicy... More

We had food from Animo twice in a two-day stay in Philadelphia, once in the restaurant and once carryout. It was great both times. My wife is a vegetarian, and their veg burritos were great. Definitely a cut above the average burrito bar.

I was excited to find a home grown Philly Cheese Steak😳. But was not impressed. The cheese (whis) left me flat and the grilled veggies came in a cup. Boo hiss; or maybe my expectations were tooooo high.

I was not impressed- Got lunch here and ordered a burrito. It was pricier than average. I think they do other items really well though... Service was good.

Visited Animo quite by accident, as we were passing and the sign for banana cream alternative caught out eye. We were delighted to find this hidden gem. The food was delicious and the real treat was the frozen banana "ice cream alternative, which tastes like delicious, perfectly sweetened banana soft serve and has no ingredients other than frozen banana.

If you are on a health-kick, try out this restaurant!! All the food was so fresh and cooked right in front of us. The menu states pretty much everything that is in the salad, smoothie, etc. so you can duplicate the item at home, as well. Great service, making you feel healthy when you leave!

This was a great find on a recent visit to Philly. It was located in walking distance to our hotel. We were met with friendly staff and a great atmosphere. They use all fresh ingredients and even indulged me by allowing me to purchase carrots from them. It was a refreshing place to eat after days of traveling.

Eat in or takeout this wholesome inner-city restaurant fills you up without draining your wallet. With my first bite of the house salad my taste buds said thank you! I added beans and what a nice option. My partner had a "petitio" burrito and it was a perfect amount of food. I would diffently return again & recommend you try... More
