Loved this place! Breakfast is offered all-day which is always a plus in my book. I had a wrap with a side of brown rice tabbouleh and a cup of lentil soup which was good on a chilly day.Reasonable prices and I love that they are very active in doing their part to help save our earth! They offer fresh... More

I stopped for breakfast in this place on my way to the great smoky mountains park. I've got surprised by the broad selection of vegetarian and helthy breakfasts this place has. I ordered the pura vida bowl and it was very tasty and nice. Staff is very friendly and I'm really glad I found this place which serves nice breakfasts... More

This is a nice but busy restaurant located in the downtown area of Nashville. Walking distance to all shopping. Food is good and a variety of selections from breakfast to lunch items. It's very popular so don't be surprised to wait in line for 20-15 minutes during peak hours. Very friendly staff and comfortable eating areas. Self service seating. Prices... More

Had breakfast here two mornings in a row, One in our party was vegetarian and one was gluten-intolerant. They were happy, as were we. Several great and healthy juices were offered. We had Immune Tune and it was very good. The Butter Cup Coffee is so tasty! Root vegetable hash was loved by all. Their scrambled eggs were so light... More

My husband and I went to Green Sage Café three times during our stay in Asheville. On the first stop, I ordered a café au lait then we later went back for lunch. Their beet collard wrap with house-made sweet potato chips were excellent as was their smoothie. A wonderful place for bright, flavorful, and healthy options.

Excellent coffee, smoothie, juices and a menu filled with GF options including bread and wraps as well as desserts that are gluten free. One of my favorite coffee shops.

We were in Asheville looking for a different restaurant when we stumbled on the Green Sage Cafe and decided to try it, and we were so glad we did! We started with the Heartbeet juice (delicious), then my husband ordered the butternut squash soup (so rich) and turkey club sandwich and I ordered the curry bowl. Our meals were spectacular,...

I had a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a salmon wrap with Sweet Potato chips. Everything was very tasty, but the PSL was the most flavorful I've had. It reminded me of pumpkin pie in a cup!

I have been frequenting green sage for years. Every time we visit Asheville , we have to have either breakfast, lunch or just coffee and tea there, at least once. There is always something new and interesting on their menu . Highly recommended

The breakfast was good. It is better than a chain restaurant, but not a top independent cafe that you find throughout the town. If you are vegan, they do have options. The service is prompt and it will satisfy you. If you are in a pinch, this place will do. It is satisfying, but not the worlds best food.
