What do you get if you combine Vine, sweetgreen, Deluxe, and a foodgasm?...
Ever since its opening on October 12th, Sweetgreen has become Columbia's hottest go-to spot on campus.
We get it: it's new, it's shiny, and it's actually healthy for you. Sweetgreen swooped into Morningside Heights with the goal of converting students to kale and wiping the thought of Uni Cafe from our memories. The storefront is beautiful and makes you think of taking a long stroll on a Santa Monica boardwalk. It (almost) makes you forget about how much work is waiting for you back at your dorm. This all seems well and good, but the reality of Sweetgreen sets in when you see that for a pseudo-healthy lifestyle you're dropping $12 on some green shit and $15 if you're thirsty for some ginger juice. Don't get us wrong, Sweetgreen is great, but when you're living on college student budget, it's important to see how much other stuff you could get for the price of a meal....
