  • Lemon & Thyme – “Lemon & Thyme!!! So delicious and fresh. I got the Mexicali salad with their lemon & thyme dressing. So good!!! I can’t wait to go back and try even more salads and bowls they all looked amazing.”, Sky Nobles
  • Backwoods Crossing – “Farm to table is such a beautiful concept, and it benefits everyone in the local economy plus you get incredibly fresh cuisine. I had the shrimp salad with fresh, locally caught shrimp and citrus for lunch and it was beyond fabulous!”, Gabrielle K Gabrielli
  • Midtown Caboose – “I was craving a good salad, so I looked here (Tallahassee Foodies Facebook Group) for reviews and found Midtown Caboose. The salad was huge and oh so filling! It was everything I expected and so delicious!”, Tani Sheen
  • Jeri’s at Market Square – “I love the Jeri’s Wonder Salad and the brie and apple pressed sandwich served with their amazing tomato bisque. This chic and casual cafe is located in Market Square, with a spacious patio for outdoor dining. The staff are a great team and work together to ensure your dining experience is a pleasure.”, Somkit Thompson
  • Bare Naked Kitchen – “Tried Bare Naked Kitchen for the first time for a coworker’s birthday and was quite impressed! I had the Shanghai Crunch (pictured), the birthday girl had the Cobb Salad, another had the Porkfection, and the last had the Bee Sting, which I absolutely want to try next time. Healthy, delicious, and unique!!”, Jamie Seidman McDonnell
  • Yasou Cafe – Fresh Mediterranean – “Yasou Cafe – Fresh Mediterranean was fantastic. I got the Mediterranean salad and added chicken shawarma. I couldn’t stop eating it. The Greek dressing with bits of feta…”, Martha Rollin Soder
  • Bumpa’s Local #349 – “Stopped by Bumpa’s Local #349 specifically for this salad, which I saw in the group and on the Tallahassee Foodies blog. It has a fried goat cheese medallion, pickled onions, bacon, blueberries, and a blueberry vinaigrette. Y’all, this is hands down my favorite salad…. pretty much ever.”, Becca Arroyo
  • The Bark – “For those of you who haven’t tried The Bark, run. SO absolutely delicious. I’m regretting only ordering the Asian salad with crispy tofu for lunch. Also regretting not taking a picture. I don’t think I have in my life ever had a better salad.”, Laura Blessing
  • Madison Social – “Yesterday, I picked up a Grilled Buffalo Chicken salad from Madison Social and I want it again today! The sauce had a little bit of a kick to it without being too spicy and the blue cheese dressing was thick and chunky like i like it. It was all just a bit fancy with the additional blue cheese crumbles and all over a spring mix as opposed to iceberg lettuce. I love this so much!”, Jennifer Leale
