The plate cost me $11.50 and comes with two sides. I also picked up a Cowboy Cookie for $2.50 and a half pot of French press coffee for $2.50.
The sides are listed as mashed potatoes and a choice of several salads but I was told by the cashier that they'll give you any of the sides on the menu if it's not too busy. It wasn't too busy so I was able to choose the grilled corn with lemon vinaigrette and basil and the farro wheat with sweet pepper rings and chimichurri vinaigrette.
The farro wheat was more successful in this regard as there was a slight herbiness from the chimichurri and a welcomed sweetness and crisp texture from peppers. The farro itself offer a slight chew and nutty flavor.
The problem that I've come across with these cafeteria-type chains that have been popping up is that the food is often lukewarm at best and Tender Greens didn't buck the trend. The fried chicken just barely made it to "warm," while the corn and farro were room temperature (which is fine for the farro but not so much for the corn).
The grilled bread was also not warm but was crispy and oddly spicy.
As for the cookie and the coffee:
The coffee was sourced from Stumptown and was a steal for $2.50 given the quality. There was plenty for two mugs-fulls of the smooth and flavorful morning brew. The metal pot, while very durable, was also super-heavy. It completely unbalanced my tray and it's not like I can put it in the middle with the plate there. You might want to consider making two trips to the counter to avoid the risk of spillage.
