Now, about Allons Vert…
It’s a quaint, well-designed health food store on Notre Dame Street, west of Guy. Vansi, the owner, took time to give me a tour featuring all the highlights. Take a look at what wowed me, or join Vansi at Allons Vert for a real live tour.
You’ll find the kind of fast food your body needs for good mileage. I took home the veggie burger and added several splashes of hot sauce. It tasted great with Allons Vert‘s super fresh whole wheat pita and a whole grain side salad.
Take a moment to bask in the spiritual guidance offered in the decor.
