Its a melange (yes I said it) of fresh greens: kale, arugula, watercress and spinach. To that we add cherry tomatoes, avocado, whole wheat croutons and wait for it, a grilled halloumi steak. Halloumi is cheese but not just any. It’s salty and buttery and firm like meat but its not meat. We’re gonna grill it to order and ur gonna be smilin’.

ps: come for breakfast. we got STUMPTOWN
