Overall, I was impressed with the wide variety of vegan options, relaxing atmosphere, and friendly staff. The meat and cheese is kept far from the produce, and they use separate tongs. The main downside is that little, if none, of their produce is organic, though some is local. And, the only green thing about the restaurant is their vegetable selection (and delivery vehicle) - they haven't figured out a way to be eco-friendly and cost effective at the same time (unfortunately, this is a common problem). Their to-go containers, cups and eating utensils are plastic. Although, if you dine-in your salad will be served in a metal bowl.
The bottom line: you'll love Salad Bowl Cafe if you're on a budget and looking for a healthy meal while in Beverly Hills. However, if you're willing to pay a little more for an organic salad in an biodegradable take-out container, I recommend Greenleaf Chop Shop down the street.
