No matter what you choose, you'll enjoy a tasty, quality, and healthy meal!

Toss your own creation! Move down the line to include your pick from over 30 different toss-ins – not just cucumbers and carrots, but ingredients such as quinoa, hearts of palm, pickled onions, roasted corn, wasabi peas, spicy pepitas, feta, & goat cheese. Next, add a protein to make your design a bit heartier. Choices include marinated, oven-roasted chicken or skirt steak, roasted salmon, shrimp, tofu, or sopresatta salami. Top it all off with one of our house-made salad dressings - YUM!

Specialty Sandwiches & Homemade Soups

Specialty Sandwiches & Homemade Soups
We love our salads, but sometimes a sandwich just hits the spot. We grill our sandwiches between slices of Toss-made rosemary focaccia. Enjoy with a cup of our homemade soup on the side, perfect to warm up on a rainy day. Our soup selection varies daily, so come in often to try them all!

Love this place! Everything is fresh and the portions are very generous. Great staff that isn’t rushed and take the time to get your order right. I highly recommend building your own salad with a mix of greens and some lean protein!

Wow, wow, WOW!!!! If you enjoy eating salads, you are in for a treat. Everything is fresh; staff is friendly and make suggestions based on what you like. The Toss makes their own dressing, so I'd order it on the side, for it's very flavorful. Bon appétit..

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. The salads themselves are really tasty and filling. There are a lot of vegan options, so if that's your jam, you're in luck. There is a nice collection of root beer and teas too (and beer as well!)!
