Commuters and shoppers visiting the Newport Centre Mall have a new healthy meal option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner now that The Little Beet opened on the second floor on July 5.

The New York-based chain serves up gluten-free “plant based” dishes, from chef-made bowls to make-your-own salads to breakfast sandwiches. Most of the menu items are vegan as well.
