Healthy lunches at Granola

With its two restaurants, Granola has taken on the city of Calvin. The menu offers something for everyone, serving meat, veggie, vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free dishes. You’ll love the lively and refreshing atmosphere at lunchtime. Settle into the ever so slightly minimalist spaces with friends and family and sip on a delicious cold pressed juice or house smoothie you can’t help but fall in love with.

You simply have to try the super bowls, the restaurant’s signature dish. Loaded with salmon, tuna or GRTA chicken, they make a complete and balanced meal. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, don’t miss out on the banana bread or chocolate cake – they’re irresistible!
