MAD Greens: Westminster
Mad Greens restaurant in Westminster is part of a larger group that started in 2004. At the time, it was groundbreaking for what it offered. Today, they still serve fresh and healthy food for adults and children alike, which makes it much easier for the average person to avoid the dreaded junk food diet.
Their cuisine can best be described as healthy, vegetarian-friendly, “American fast food.” Their “grain bowls” are rice-based, so they should be excellent for those with an intolerance to (or for those who choose to avoid) gluten. MAD Greens: Westminster restaurant caters mostly to the daytime crowd. It’s also accessible by wheelchair for those with a handicap, which is always a win.
Eating healthy becomes an exciting experience with Babajoon’s Kabobs. Their menu offers a mix of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Persian cuisine, with a few odd dishes from other countries thrown in for good measure. Vegans and vegetarians are catered to the most, and the restaurant opens at brunch. Despite the late start, Babajoon’s stays open until well past dinner time, seven days a week.
There are various seating options available at Babajoon’s that extend to outdoor seating and private dining areas. The restaurant is accessible via wheelchair, it is child-friendly, and they do offer takeout versions of their meals, which is helpful for all the homebodies out there that don’t want to go out.
All of Babajoon’s ingredients are fresh, and the food is prepared on the premises, right down to the Taftoon bread. Their ingredients are organic too, which is impressive.

In contrast to Babajoon’s, The Egg and I restaurant in Westminster is open early, opening their doors at 6 am and shutting them at 2 pm. Their focus is on serving breakfast, brunch, and lunch, so plan to be there early to get a table. Despite the name, the menu also contains many egg-free dishes. Their cuisine is best described as healthy, Southwestern American “cafe food.” They also offer—among other things—gourmet coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and hearty, homemade soups.
Meals can be eaten on the premises or ordered as takeout, with seating that includes high chairs and outdoor seating options. They take reservations and accept credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. They also offer plenty of parking space and free Wi-Fi.
