Amazing salads. I asked an employee about The ingredients in one food item. She quickly took out a binder of ingredients and let me look at anything I wanted.

Only one item on the menu has gluten (breadcrumbs) so much easier than other salad spots to keep cross-contamination free!

Sweetgreen was one of our favorite salad places when we visited the East Coast. Glad they opened in the Bay Area. Ingredients sourced directly from farmers. Mostly gluten-free menu, and can accommodate requests to leave out bread or breadcrumbs. 👍🏽👍🏽

I’m so glad this place opened! There are only two gluten ingredients and they’re clearly labeled. As of this writing, only one salad has a gluten ingredient. Bread is offered on the side, so just say no. The salads are fresh and delicious and the service is friendly. If you like salads and light meals, give it a try. Highly recommended! The only caveat is that it gets super crowded from 12-1. It can be frustrating to get a table. Yelp is reporting issues with to go orders, but I’ve only eaten in the restaurant and haven’t had any complaints in four visits. If you can get there at 11:45 or 1:00, you’ll be good to go. They also have an app that makes it easy to order to go. They don’t take cash, just credit.

Called in after placing order online (which is required here) and mentioned one of us had celiac. The person on the phone just said OK. They didn’t even ask which salad. One of the salads had croutons. Just seemed like they don’t care. My order was naturally GF but I have zero confidence about cross contamination.

Everything is gf but the bread, croutons, and forks. They took good care to change apron and wash hands. No utensils as the fork is made from wheat. They even suggested not to get the almonds because it is next to the bread crumbs.

Got the shroomami bowl and didn’t get sick. When I said I couldn’t have gluten the staff person changed their gloves. Very few items in the store contain gluten and I didn’t see any problematic cross contamination between the trays with different toppings. Food was delicious.

This is a great place to grab a safe bite if you are at or near the mall. When we say we have a gluten allergy, the staff member washes hands, puts on new gloves, etc. Most items on the menu are gluten free. It may be expensive for salads, but the ingredients are fresh and delicious and I am also willing to pay for someone to prepare them sometimes. I love this place.
