This is the best place ever! So healthy and fresh. Every time I have gone I have received superb customer service and the food has been outstanding.

Great customer service, nice atmosphere. the food was absolutely delicious, and surprisingly very filling for a vegan option. I had the " Hail Cesar."

Awesome place for lunch/ casual meals. Got the Hale Caesar bowl and it was superb. Kales were covered heavily in their sauce and a bit of cheese, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The pickled onions that I added also made the bowl much better. Other ingredients like coconut bacons also helped me go through the bowl without having to feel like I’m only eating salad. Overall, a solid place to get your daily dose of greens.

My favorite place to visit when I’m in Durham is Happy + Hale❣️❣️❣️ I always get the Dragonfruit drink & I create my own bowl❗️ The bowl consist of cauliflower, spring mix, black beans, corn, tomatoes, cucumbers so delicious 🤤🤤 The person that took my order was very nice. We need Happy + Hale in Greensboro!!! #vegan #plantbased #happy #lunch #yummy

Wanted to try something different so I search on the Happy Cow app for vegan restaurants. This popped up and oh my what a find. Several plant based options for food and several option of no sugar and no corn syrup beverages. Their homemade smoothies and bubblers were so refreshing! Looking for to my next visit!

First time visiting and I was craving something healthy and quick. I was really excited to find somewhere that had fast, dairy free options. I ordered the Beyond Bulgogi bowl since it was vegan and was thoroughly happy with the taste and amount of food.(Korean BBQ Beyond meatballs, ginger cucumbers, pickled carrots, cabbage slaw, avocado, yum yum sauce, scallions, sesame seeds, jasmine rice). That being said...I only gave 4 stars beacause it was kind of expensive (15 and change) for just the bowl and half a cupof yum yum sauce, no one greeted when I walked in, and also when I entered into the restaurant there is no clear definition of where the pick up is (I honestly may have missed it, I had been up since 3 am) but when you figure out where it is and walk up it is just a window with a steel shelf and food is just sitting there not bagged (not much of a biggie I guess) with just a ticket on it that you have to lean over the other to go plates to read your name. Not only that but there are no markings for distancing and some other customer came up behind me to grab his food. I worked in the restaurant industry for many years and sometimes when you don't have wait staff you see all of the other issues in a restaurant. There were only about 6 other customers in the store that day so they weren't crazy busy and not a single person in line. The food was really good and maube next time I go( I believe in second chances) back it will be a better experience since I am a little more familiarized with the way things work.

The food was AMAZING . Tee was so friendly and so helpful it was me and my boyfriends first time ever going and we are in L O V E with your food, it was so fresh . The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the associate named Casey was very rude to my boyfriend and I. My boyfriend accidentally took his mask off because it was hard for him to breathe and she yelled in a rude way “ put your mask on ! “I understand you have a job to do but as a first time customer you definitely didn’t have to yell at us and be rude in general. Other than that EVERYTHING and everyone was perfect .

My friends and I found Happy + Hale in Durham after a day of hiking. We were craving smoothies, but it was the all-day breakfast option that really got our attention. We each ordered a smoothie and breakfast wrap and ate outside in the shade (because #Covid). The food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. One staffer came outside several times to ask if we needed anything and took our trash. I was a little worried that, for the price, the portion size of the food would be small, but the wraps were quite large and filling. One could have easily fed two or three of us. The smoothies were healthy AND delicious. Very pleased! Would definitely re-visit.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Just tried Happy + Hale for the first time tonight and I am absolutely in love. I created my own bowl and it was delicious, flavorful, filling, and nutritious! I will be raving about this place for a long time 👏🏼

They always have a great selection of meals and the bowels make it easy for me to build a meal without gluten or dairy. Happy friendly staff make for a pleasurable ordering experience. Keep up the good work

UPDATE: I had originally given Happy and Hale 3 stars because of the below. Within a week they fixed the situation and told me that if I put in the instruction area that I want 3 extra dressings, they will include them in the order. So I reordered and asked for my 3 extra dressings and they included them. Excellent results. Excellent Customer Service. I am impressed at how quickly they fixed this problem. Will order more salads from them again! February 15, 2020: I ordered through door dash. Ordered a Chicken ThaI salad that cost me $24.15. They delivered the salad with (1) salad dressing. Repeat...one tiny little dressing that was 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches round. This is standard policy at Hally and Hale. This tiny dressing wasn’t enough to even cover the croutons! So I’m out $25 and have a salad with virtually no dressing. Will not do this again.

If you're new to the Durham lunch scene, you need to stop by here! So glad that I chose to come here for lunch. I'm pretty new to the area and wanted to eat somewhere healthy. With being my first time, I got a free drink and the fruit green tea was awesome. For lunch I decided to go with a wrap. It was so delicious. I will definitely be back to try other menu items. The taking my order was so helpful in choosing.

I am soooooo happy (no pun intended lol) that they have such a healthy restaurant in the area that caters to my new dietary lifestyle I am adapting. I loved the fact that you can customize your bowl choices. I love this place!

Wow! Words can’t even begin to describe. Each time we go, the service is impeccable. The quinoa bowl is very flavorful and each ingredient is fresh. All of their bowls, utensils, and even lids are eco friendly as well. We’ve made it a routine to bring visitors from out of the area here for lunch often. The only comment I have is to listen a bit more when the customers are ordering. We’ve caught situations where we are talking to ourselves because the employee wasn’t listening. I won’t let that affect my review, but the overall experience is great.

Happy and Hale is a wonderful space for healthy eats and relaxation and peace. I love it, my kids love it, and there is truly something for everyone here. This is the next generation in food, where food and headspace and body wellness all intersect in a neat, creative way. I strongly recommend this spot, you will be wondering why you haven't been before 😊 and you will want to try everything on the menu!

Excellent food! Every item in my bowl was made from fresh ingredients. The chef Jeremy was a delightful young man who made recommendations based on my gluten allergy and the fact I love spicy food. I will definitely be returning for more delicious fresh food soon.

The food here is so delicious! I was skeptical about trying this place out but my friend told me give it a try. I am so glad that I did, the steak bowl was very tasteful. The greatest part was the meal was healthy and tasteful!

Really delicious and well thought out bowl combinations. I had the Poole-side salad and repacked soppresata with avocado, even with the mod it was so great. Only thing that could make it better would be nongmo or organic certifications!

Not the average to-go counter salad place. The food here is not only delicious and unique but filling. I tried the special edition Poole'side salad and the chimichurri steak bowl. Both were perfect. I would probably eat here every day if I could.

I have lots of food restrictions such as no gluten, dairy, yeast or eggs. I had a great experience here. The girl was great with handling all my restrictions and provided suggestions. Plus the food was great.

This is my 1st experience & I'm extremely satisfied. This place is amazing. Each ingredient was fresh. I had a Ahi Poke salad. I was able 2 create my own version. I'm hooked! Would've took a pic but by the time i thought about it..... The bowl was almost empty.😅 I love it

Food is delicious and fresh; wonderful options to choose from. My only compliant - which I dearly hope the owner will address - is a very unpleasant smell that’s present as soon as you open the front door. If you can get past the smell, it’s a great, healthy meal.

I really love happy and hale and wish the location convenient to me was a different one. I work locally to the 9th street location and really love to stop by on my way home from work to pick up dinner from time to time. I live remotely so, food options like this one aren't abundant where I live. Especially, from a convenience standpoint. I normally order online and then buzz in and pick up. Here lately the online option hasn't been available at the 9th street location which is frustrating but, still doable because I can just call. The last time I called customer service on the phone was subpar but, nevertheless we got the job done. Today I logged on to place an order and the online option wasn't available so, I called..... 3 times over the span of an hour and never got anyone. Just an answering machine. I called within the hours of operation but, never reached anyone and was running out of time to place an order before my drive home at the end of the day. I am disappointed with the service at this location because they have such great, healthy food that is super convenient. Some better communication about how to place an order would be appreciated.

I love this place. Salads are great, clean environment, staff is nice, but I never seem to know when it is actually open. Google says it is open daily until 8pm but several times now I have expected them to be open and they are not. Someone should fix that.

I got the Thai Chicken Crunch salad and the City of Oats smoothie. The salad was delicious, fresh and I loved the dressing. The smoothie was just good. I'll definitely be back for more salads.

I ordered a smoothie which was delicious. However, the two bowls were not as satisfying. Taste was not bad, but portions were not commensurate with the price. I had to ask for one of the bowls to be remade due to the portion size, which wasn't an issue for them to do. I'll stick to the smoothies.
