Daily Harvest has had a long standing reputation in Monroe-West Monroe as the place to go when looking for a healthy meal. Owner Philip Thigpen delivers that with his “good food, and by the way, it’s healthy” approach to his menu.

“People want to eat healthy food without eating the same thing,” Philip said. So they have broadened their menu with delicious food options that are not only tasty, but good for you too.

The atmosphere is casual and friendly. And the staff is too. Walk up to the counter and check out their menu. It’s a perfect set-up because you can check out their baked goods like cookies and freshly made bread while you decide what to order.

At the suggestion of a co-worker, Sylvia ordered the chicken salad on homemade Cranberry Pecan bread and a cup of Broccoli Cheese Soup. The sandwich was better than promised, especially with their freshly made bread, and the soup was warm and just plain good!

I had checked out the daily specials on their website and could not wait to try the Jalapeno Cornbread Stackup. They top their jalapeno cornbread with turkey chili, cheese, sour cream, and a few more jalapenos.

I also finished my meal with a huge cookie. And by huge, I mean HUGE! (Just look. It’s as big as my hand!) You can choose from Oatmeal, Chocolate Haystack, M&M, Ginger Molasses, Oatmeal Peanut Butter, and more. I chose the Heath Bar.

Menu options include breakfast sandwiches and wraps, salads, sandwiches (both hot and cold), soups, pizzas, and a hot sandwich special of the day. They have a full catering menu too! Daily Harvest is open Monday-Saturday from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm.
