  • At over $10, the sandwiches may seem pricey, but they utilize high quality ingredients and come with two excellent sides; it makes for a filling lunch or a satisfying light dinner.
  • Try the Summer Harvest salad! The mixture of baby lettuce, goat cheese, assorted vegetables, sprouts, salsa verde, sunflower seeds, and shrimp or chicken will have you asking, "What's bread?"
  • Best Americanized 'banh-mi' I've ever had
  • This place uses actual "local" grown foods hence the name. I recommend trying the Asian chopped salad it's awesome!

  • Delicious shrimp and crab sandwich. Fresh, healthy food in a pleasant, airy setting.
  • The food is good & it's definitely convenient when it's not Sunday Brunch. The pretzel buns are delicious!
  • The truffled egg salad on the glorious crusty-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside pretzel bun is a revelatory gourmet twist on a classic. Also their refreshing strawberry mintade is my new fave drink.
  • It's ok. In my opinion not worth the price for the taste, but worth it if your goal is to eat clean.
  • Local Foods is the epitome of a useful restaurant, the kind of place that's relaxed and easy and inspires you to have a relaxed, easy meal yourself.
  • Crunchy chicken in and around my mouth!!!!
  • The lemongrass soup is unbelievable
  • Kale salad is awesome. The earl grey bar is good, soft, and flaky but it tastes more like lemon bar.
