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.

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

Pure deliciousness! Their falafel bowl hit the spot and their sweet tea is unbelievable!

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.

So glad to have healthy food accessible to us in The Triangle. Really enjoyed the outdoors sitting, as well. Thx Happy + Hale

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
