Step Inside Flower Child, Addison’s New Health Food Haven

Build the perfect salad at this veg-friendly spot

The second outpost of Flower Child will officially open its doors in Addison this week, bringing its menu of healthy, customizable fare to a bright, recently revamped space.

It’s hard to remember that the location at 5290 Belt Line Road once housed a fast food rotisserie chicken chain thanks to a major interior renovation. Abundant windows in the dining room allow in plenty of natural light, and natural woods keep it bright while richly-colored chairs and banquettes add contrast. Upon entering, diners are greeted with Flower Child’s expansive menu and an ordering station, where a bounty of trendy, health-focused dishes await, like avocado toast topped with sections of hard-boiled egg and a sprinkle of white cheddar.

Hummus, quinoa salad, and vegan ramen are also on the menu, along with a series of vegetables and starches like Sichuan-spiced snap peas and gluten-free macaroni and cheese that can be combined with steak, salmon, chicken, or tofu to round out a plate. Dying to watch the action as the kitchen staff furiously assembles a bowl or salad? Peer over the glass wall that separates the open kitchen from the rest of the dining room.

Flower Child is set to debut on Wednesday, December 5. Before trekking to Addison, take a peek inside the space courtesy of Eater photographer Kathy Tran.
