Where to Pick Up a Salad for Lunch in Austin

Nothing says springtime like fresh salads during a sunny lunch break. Whether you’re looking to avoid that post-lunch food coma with something a little lighter to eat midday, or possibly starting to work on that beach bod, Austin has some incredible salad spots that will leave you feeling healthy and satisfied. These are the best places to pick up a salad around Austin!


2201 College Ave, Austin, TX 78704

At Vinaigrette, they’ve taken salads to the next level, creating entrées that you won’t eat “because it’s healthy,” but because it’s genuinely one of the best dishes you’ve ever had. While they are primarily salad-focused, they do have a lovely selection of soups and sandwiches, and possibly one of the prettiest patios to relax at, in all of Austin.

Modern Market Eatery

401 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701

Modern Market has some incredible salad options that are far from the mundane. With a huge focus on sustainability, you’ll find fresh, healthy foods, certain to satisfy any craving. Plus, you can order a half or a full size, depending on how hungry you are!


515 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701

Cava is like Mediterranean-style Chipotle, and is absolutely perfect for a quick lunch on the go! You can opt for a full greens bowl, a greens and grains bowl, or go all in with one of their four types of rice (including cauliflower-rice). Choose from either a build-your-own option or enjoy one of their chef-curated bowls.

Mad Greens

5601 Brodie Ln Ste 1500, Austin, TX 78745

The goal of Mad Greens since its opening was to make fast food that was healthy, but still incredibly tasty — and they really have succeeded. Their menu of salads is totally customizable, so you can get exactly what you want in record time, and have a filling lunch without ending up in a food coma.


621 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701

For an Asian spin on the typical salad, look no further than Koriente! The restaurant’s main focus is on creating dishes that are fresh, low in sugar and oil, and — of course — delicious! They have tons of wonderful options, but their Lemon Pepper Papaya Salad is absolutely fantastic.

Flower Child

11721 Rock Rose Ave, Austin, TX 78758

At Flower Child, the menu remains simple and tasty. You can customize anything on the menu — or build it from scratch! — with a wide variety of fresh veggies, fruits, grains, and proteins. The restaurant easily caters to all kinds of diets, from vegan to paleo, and everything in between.
