Review: O.K. I have to start this by saying I travel all over the United States, each week in fact, I am in a different state.. and I HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS IN TAMPA. I found out about this absolutely GREAT place last weekend, and decided we'd go. I was surprised at first about the location, because we couldn't find a place to park. Upon going inside, we realized why.. there were about 8 tables,( I think) and 4 were filled and we'd fill the 5th. Right when I walked in I was telling my husband that THIS is what I see all over the place. Cute, appealing, REAL atmosphere. I guess if you're into the modern look,it wouldn't be, but this place is pure authentic! We ordered a "Beet me up Scotty" beet, cuke and celery drink. It was a bit on the pricey side since I'm used to paying about $5.25 average nation-wide for the juices... but, IT WAS GREAT! We had the Kale salad that was " massaged" and just perfectly seasoned and moist with an incredible citrus dressing.. not too wet, not too dry... JUST THE RIGHT amount to bring out the flavor of the tomatoes and avocados. We also had the Falafel.. and IT WAS THE BEST I have ever had. My husband is not a vegetarian, and usually doesn't like anything that resembles it.. in fact, he didn't even want to go... he mumbled on the way and (but.. WAS OPEN TO THE IDEA... because I was really pushing him) but, after all that.. we had no room to try dessert.. people aren't used to having such fiber, taste, AND actual nutrition in their foods. I want to write SO much.. but the best things about this place are NOT JUST THE FOOD..... THE OWNERS ARE AMAZING.. they've taken a dream and made it into their reality and are living and working to make Tampa and the world a better place. AND AGAIN... REAL ... not often found these days!!! I'll be back FOR SURE.. too bad I'm not closer!!!! Thanks you guys!!! I think you'd do a BOOMING, BOOMING BIZ IN THE "TREADY" SIDES OF TOWN.. LIKE: New Tampa or even more so in the Howard Blvd. area where all the different types of restuarants are. I'd LOVE to see a another location at some point.. but KNOW you can't clone yourselves.. :)
