Long before “fast casual,” “locally sourced,” or “fresh and organic” became common cliches in restaurant advertising, The Flying Avocado Cafe was serving top quality, made-to-order soups, salads, and sandwiches using local, organic ingredients with the speed of a fast food joint. Not surprisingly, this charming little family business has become a favorite for healthy lunches and take-out for Owings Mills residents on the go.
Whether you’re stopping by for a quick pick-me-up smoothie after a gym workout, or want to grab a quick and healthy lunch before you do your weekend grocery shopping, this cafe has you covered. Vegans, vegetarians, and gluten-sensitive diners are among The Flying Avocado’s biggest champions on social media, but carnivores will find plenty to love, as well. Everyone has a personal favorite, but the most popular dishes are probably the grilled chicken berry salad, the avocado black bean wrap, and the house-made vegan chili.
