Saige Cafe opens in Spring Garden - 6/30/16
Welcome to Fairmount Saige Café! On Thursday June 30th, I attended the Saige Grand opening community welcoming party! This was an event that included people around the local area as well as a couple social media folks such as food bloggers and other influential people of the food industry. Saige Café currently has locations in Toms River NJ, Temple University Philadelphia area, and now they have a new location at in the Fairmount section of Philly.
Saige is well known for the quality of products that they provide for their customers. Everything they use is locally grown, natural and organic. The meats used for their sandwiches are even free of antibiotics. Even their signature ground coffee is organic. I never had organic coffee until my visit at Saige. And I can honestly say that I was able to taste the quality and difference from any other coffee that I’ve tasted. It was really, REALLY good!
I enjoyed samples of the Green Oasis Smoothie. It consisted of cucumber, avocado, spinach, yogurt, peach and protein. I really enjoyed this one. It had a very light taste, and it wasn’t overly sweet. I’m a huge fan of green smoothies, and this is definitely a must try. Next, I tried the strawberry banana smoothie. This was refreshing and had the right amount of sweetness in it. I liked how it was topped with the whipped cream too ;-)
If you love iced lattes, then you’ll definitely be a fan of Saige’s iced lattes. Very smooth, and it had such a clean taste to it. You have to try it for yourself to experience the quality. I had a couple of these that evening, haha! Following the lattes, I tried samples of their veggie burger. I occasionally eat veggie burgers once in a while. But its hard to find a great veggie burger. Everyone isn’t the best at making them, and they tend to be dry and bland if you don’t know what you’re doing. Saige on the other hand, has nailed it. This veggie burger was moist and had a great flavor to it as well. If you’re a fan of veggie burgers or if you’re a vegetarian as well, this veggie burger is a great option to try out.
Now this was the topper of my evening. So, I’m a lover of anything with guava in it. Guava is a flavor that is featured on Saige’s menu. Before the end of the evening, I requested to sample something with guava in it and Ehsan made sure that happened. He made my night! I loved it! This was a guava smoothie specially made just for me and another fellow guest by the name of Chef Cherryl, aka “PhillyFoodGal” on Instagram. We were both elated to try it and of course this left us completely happy and satisfied :-)
The community welcoming event was a success. I wish Saige Café much success at their new location. And I will definitely be a returning customer to both Fairmount as well as Temple University. If you ever are in either area, please come by and give Saige a try! For more information about Saige Bistro, please go to www.saigecafe.com
