Good place with juices and vegan options in sobe

4 Posted on 07 / 20 / 2014

It's nice to have Juice and Java in south beach. You can get freshly made juices, but honestly they're just ok, not the best tasting juice. And good avocado salad. 4 stars mostly b/c of the location. Medium quality ingredients.

Pros: Location
Cons: Juice quality not the best

When I stayed in Miami for a week, this was my go-to breakfast/brunch place. I loved it, every dish ordered was delicious and healthy.

Pros: vegan, fresh raw juice made to order, price
Cons: slow

Juice & Java

3 Posted on 05 / 11 / 2011

I stopped by here after my failed attempt to eat at Escopazzo (they were closed), as Juice and Java is across the street. I ordered a smoothie (strawberry, banana, orange, etc.) and tried to ask what was vegan but was not treated very nice by the staff, needless to say, I just got the smoothie and left. They did have a little container with sweets in it that said vegan options, but when I tried asking what was vegan the staff member couldn't (or was unwilling) to tell me...I don't know what her deal was, busy or not. The smoothie was OK.

Delicious and Dissapointing all in one

3 Posted on 02 / 27 / 2011

My boyfriend and I visited today and we loved the vibe, menu, and cupcakes : ). However, I wish I had checked Happy cow before visiting to learn that the soy cheese was not vegan.

We asked the staff if the soy cheese was vegan and they looked at us like we had three heads and insisted that yes it was. We ordered the quesadilla and veggie burger melt and they were both really delicious, but I was really upset to come home and find the cheese had casein. The staff on South Beach wasn't really helpful and were kind of rude when we were asking about vegan options. We asked specifically for our meals to be completely vegan, explained what it was, and they just brushed us off. Both of our meals came with a sauce that seemed like it was probably not vegan, though of course I do not know as they did not have a good grasp on the concept even after I told them.

I was unsettled by their lack of understanding and the fact that I had probably just eaten a meal full of milk and possibly eggs as well (in the veggie burger). Even if they did not have an understanding of veganism they could have taken more time to listen to us and consider what we were saying.

I contacted Alex through the email on their website and told him/her everything I said here. I was delighted to receive this email:

Hi Chelsea,
> I'm glad you discovered us and will hopefully continue to patronize Juice&Java.
> I can only apologize and promise to look into the south beach staffs conduct.
> As far as the soy cheese and veggie burgers go, they are soya kaas and
> Boca burger, respectively.
> I just checked and you are indeed correct about the caseine. We will
> be switching to follow your heart asap.
> Thanks for the tip :)
> Regards,
> Alex

The verdict: It was dissapointing to eat a non vegan meal but if they really change their cheese I think we should definitely go out and support them for being so great and listening to their vegan customers!

Pros: great response from Alex, extensive menu with or without v. cheese
Cons: pushy staff, eating casein

A vegan's dream cafe

4 Posted on 12 / 06 / 2010

My spouse and I were in South Beach for vacation for six days and I think that we ate at least one of our meals here daily. They have a very large menu with tons of vegan options. I loved the falalel as it was baked and had some sprouts in it. Tasty and healthy! There was a lot of variety in salads, smoothies, juices, wraps, pita melts, platters, and desserts. They had vegan cupcakes brought in daily and lots of other vegan treats for sale.
I was also very impressed that the juices and smoothies are so fresh. I have been to places that have pre-juiced many commonly used items. Not here. I ordered the 'Green Life' juice three times that week as it was the closest to my daily juice I make at home. This juice had spinach, cucumber, celery, apple, ginger, and parsley. It was fresh and delicious. I was thrilled to have this restaurant available to me during my vacation. Finding healthy vegan food when travelling can be such a struggle, but not this time!

Pros: healthy, lots of options, large portions
Cons: none

A getaway from all those pizza/fast food joints

4 Posted on 03 / 19 / 2010

Came here for lunch on a rainy day. Had the lentil soup and the green rice pilaf. The soup was just so-so, bit salty and too watery to my liking; but the green rice pilaf was quite excellent. Would definitely come back when in town again.

Pros: huge menu, central location, good value

plenty of options

4 Posted on 11 / 30 / 2009

This restaurant / juice Bar is cute & centrally located. They will deliver to your hotel if you don't want to leave the pool for lunch :)

There are plenty of vegan/veg lunch options on the extensive menu with a variety of options. I had a hard time just choosing one item for lunch. They also have a variety of protein/raw bars, veg snacks, kombuchas, and bottled water.

In my opinion, you must visit J&J as soon as you get to the beach to stock up on healthy snacks and pick-up your menu for reference when ordering food for delivery.

Love this place.

((worthy of 5 stars although happycow will not allow me to give 5 stars due to J&J not being 100% veg.))

Pros: centrally located, huge menu, juice bar

good place

4 Posted on 07 / 21 / 2008

Great energy, lots of customers coming & going even in the middle of the day. Ample seating, including outdoor/sidewalk. My first time there (I was visiting MB). Had the falafel quinoa... it was ok. Not the best, but sometimes that's just how it goes. I believe in supporting places like this even if only in spirit (which I'll do from now on since I'm not local). Impressive menu & reasonable prices.

Pros: location, seating, friendly staff
Cons: ok food, menu not veg specific

Nice place

3 Posted on 10 / 21 / 2007

Extensive menu, many vegan options, creative foods, friendly staff. Anyone could find something they like here. The menu doesn't specify what is and is not vegan though. Overall, a very decent place to have lunch.

Pros: Extensive menu, Accomodating staff
Cons: Parking, No vegan indication
