One of many restaurants to catch on to the pre-prepared healthy foods trend, Pure Fare is a 100% gluten-free café with two locations in Philadelphia that uses organic and local ingredients in all of its meals. Premade sandwiches, salads, and entrees are available in a variety of options, including vegetarian and vegan selections. I tried the Fall Chopped Salad and was very pleased with the quality and freshness of the ingredients. Salads and sandwiches range in price from $6.50-9.50, while entrees are in the $8-11 range. Freshly made soups, smoothies, and juices are also available, and complete nutritional information for each menu item is available both in-store and on the website. Pure Fare also makes its own dairy-free desserts and does not use sugar or white flour. I had a vegan brownie and it was amazingly rich and delicious! Although most customers take their orders to go, some seating is also available in the café for those wanting to eat there. Delivery is also available.
