I work in Palo Alto and this is my #1 go-to lunch spot. Great salads, including pre-determined combos and custom salads you order with a checklist. My standard is the Howdy - butter lettuce, corn, red onion, white cheddar, roasted red pepper, avocado, and sliced roast tri-tip with bleu cheese dressing.

The BIG caveat is that they are very, very, very slow at peak times. I've waited 30+ minutes for a to-go order. You can call ahead, BUT they don't let you jump to the front of the line, so you still have to wait.

Bottom line is a recommendation with an asterisk. If a leisurely lunch of a great salad is what you seek, Sprout Cafe is well worth a try.

Pros: Very fresh ingredients, wide variety

Cons: Extremely slow with no call-ahead process

Sprout has amazing salads at a great price and large portions. The regular size is definitely enough for dinner. There are so many toppings you can get on your salad that it can be hard to choose. This place is great for a filling meal that leaves you feeling fresh rather than groggy and comatose.
