Salad Meister, new salad-based restaurant, opening soon

Salad Meister is a new salad-based restaurant opening soon in Campustown — perhaps as early as next week (April 16th or 17th). While there’s no official grand opening as of this moment, pay attention to their Facebook page for an official announcement soon.

This is an interesting (and awesome) concept, and one that doesn’t particularly exist here in Champaign-Urbana currently. Sure, you can get salads at tons of places around C-U, but this is a welcomed concept to the community. 601 6th Street, Suite 104 in Champaign is where the restaurant will exist, which is the creation of Rob Meister (Minneci’s owner) —and you can check out the menu, scope, hours, and more information below.


Here at Salad MEISTER, quality is our passion. We use only the finest, freshest, organic, enviornmentally friendly and locally grown ingredients. I created Salad MEISTER for people who only want the best for their bodies, enviornment and local economy. We are proud to serve healthy, honest and local ingredients in recycled and compostable containers.
