We strive to keep our table for allergy sufferers as current as possible, but occasionally we have menu additions and alterations. All menu items are TRANS FAT and MSG-Free. Vegan items are indicated on the menu with a V icon. Soups with a meat base or that include meat are specifically mentioned in the title or description. Calypso is the perfect place to satisfy both meat-eaters and vegetarians. Our Black Bean Salad with rice is a huge hit with vegetarians, and our Beans and 3 plate gives you a sampling of our variety of side items. With the exception of some of our soups, all our side items are vegetarian, and most are also vegan (Vegan items clearly marked with icon on menu). We can also customize items for you…Vegans LOVE our Homemade Veggie Burger on 100% whole wheat sandwich round or hearty Black Bean Salad with rice and no dairy…yum. We are all reading about nutrition… the rules seem to change daily! It can be confusing, but Calypso has served the Nashville area with the same healthy dishes for over 27 years throughout countless diet trends. No question, eating a high fiber diet rich in protein, nutrients, and colorful produce is good for you, but you also need to satisfy your desires… you deserve to enjoy your food! You will see our ingredients over and over again in health-related columns: lean chicken, beans, tomatoes, onion, green leaf lettuce (never iceberg at Calypso!), fresh fruit, mustard greens, sweet potatoes, corn, cabbage, carrots, almonds, tuna, etc. We also use generous amounts of spices known to have countless health benefits including garlic and peppers. Many items can be tailored to fit your needs: vegans often order the Black Bean Salad without dairy or we can make this fantastic salad low-fat and lower in calories by taking away the chips and dairy. Our legendary Lucayan Salad can be trimmed down by substituting the Lite Vinaigrette dressing (but don’t cut the almonds, THEY’RE SO GOOD FOR YOU!). Best of all, even with these modifications, you will not be hungry!
Let us fuel your event with healthy food for anywhere from 30 to 300 or more. Give the gift of fresh food, great for any occasion.
