We may have the best intentions to eat healthy, but how many of us think about the quality of fruits, vegetables, and meats that we’re putting in our bodies? While the “Dirty Dozen” list can help guide our shopping for organic foods, when it comes to eating out, we have a lot less control over what’s on our plates. Unless, of course, we’re dining at organic restaurants.
Below, you’ll find our researched list of all-organic restaurants in and around Philadelphia, with the added bonus of some restaurants that are mostly organic and some restaurants that are just organic-friendly, with a few organic items on the menu. Read on for the scoop on organic restaurants in Philadelphia.
Where: 1706 Locust Street, Rittenhouse
What: P.S. and Co. is what your organic dining dreams are made of because everything here is totally organic, plant-based, and gluten-free — yes, even their seemingly sinful desserts. A visit to P.S and Co. at any time of day — from breakfast to dessert — will result in a healthy, nutrient-rich, and filling meal that’s completely organic.
Where: 34 South 11th Street, Market East (located inside Mom’s Organic Market)
What: It’s no surprise that this fast-casual spot, located inside Mom’s Organic, would feature a menu of bowls and sandwiches that are entirely organic. In addition to being fully organic, the menu is super vegan and gluten-free-friendly. Pro tip: the bowls are so large that they can easily serve as two meals.
Where: 700 East Passyunk Avenue (inside Sweat Fitness), East Passyunk; 1 Brown Street, Northern Liberties
What: For a freshly bottled cold-pressed juice or smoothie that is organic — down to the add-ons like protein powder and superfood boosts — Satya juice is the place to visit. Here you can score fruit and vegetable-filled blends that are refreshingly toxin-free.
Where: 1007 Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr
What: Let’s cover the facts here first: everything at Sunset Moon is organic aside from the bagels, they are a zero-waste facility and offer vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free menu items. Beat the trendsetters and pop in for a pistachio milk latte or opt for a full pasta meal, like their indulgent Capellini entree served with a Brazil-nut parmesan cheese topping.
Where: 1109 Walnut Street, Midtown Village
What: On those days where you just need a big ol’ burger to help you get through the day, Bare Burger has you covered on the organic meats. Their beef patties are made from a blend of organic brisket and organic chuck with a little (non-organic) chuck in the mix as well. Many of the burger accoutrements, such as cheese, onions and lettuce, are organic as well.
Where: 133 East Gay Street, West Chester
What: Boasting a farm-fresh, locally sourced, and mostly organic menu, Roots Cafe is a healthy, nutritious, and quaint spot in West Chester. In addition to their organic options, many herbs and tomatoes used in the kitchen are picked from the restaurant’s garden. It’s hard to get fresher than that!
Where: 331 South 22nd Street, Fitler Square; 928 Pine Street, Washington Square West; 2319 Walnut Street, Center City
What: While these cafes aren’t at all totally organic, the heartbeat of each outpost — you know, the coffee — is exclusively organic and fair-trade.
Where: Multiple locations in Ardmore, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Newtown, North Wales and Wayne
What: Organic and seasonal when possible, Jules Thin Crust is a suburban staple for a healthy slice. The crusts are organic, and the pies are vegan and gluten-free friendly.
Where: 239 Mall Boulevard, King of Prussia
What: We are all well aware that the food at True Food Kitchen is ultra healthy, with ample vegan options, but did you know they’ve got some organic options as well? Expect to find a lot of organic veggies like tomatoes, kale, and potatoes finding their way into many menu items.
