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

We usually have at least one meal at Green Sage each time we visit Asheville, but after this last experience, they are now crossed off of our list. To start off, when we first walked in I saw a staff member behind the coffee machine sipping a frothy coffee drink. She then took the giant stir spoon from the big... More

Like the title says, gluten free and vegan friendly. Has food for everyone. Had a bacon and egg biscuit sandwich. Very tasty. Even came back for lunch later that day. Gotta try the Ginger Lemonade. A+ Prices are very fair

We have eaten here a cpl times and like it very much. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. They have a great and creative variety of food and offer gluten free options as a norm. Easy going atmosphere, love this place.

We happened by the downtown location looking for a sandwich and discovered the Beet Burger! Both me and my omnivore sister loved it and want this recipe. We also had breakfast at the Westgate location - the Huckleberry bowl was tasty and very filling.
