Good vegan food

18 Nov 2009

This was a treat to find, will surely go back again. It's a small place with a small staff, so it takes a little time to be served, but it's well worth the wait. The Center downstairs has some great spirituality items too.

I was a little taken off-guard by the staff at the center all eating from a (not veg) fast food restaurant, perhaps the restaurant itself is a different owner than the center, you do have to walk through the center's shop to get to the restaurant entrance.

Not vegan friendly

18 Nov 2009

I have been here on a few occasions hoping to have a vegan meal, but every time left without buying anything. The first time the staff wasn't very helpful with informing me of what was vegan. But my vegetarian friends really like this place so I decided to try it again. This time the staff was a little more helpful, but I had to go through the menu myself to try to figure out what was vegan, about all I could have was a smoothie, that was full of ice. So that's all I had.

What a fun place, I found it after I moved out of the area so I've only been there once, but will surely go back. The staff is the owner and family, very very friendly and we had a nice talk with them. They told us that they ensure the kitchen is vegan, there is some dairy but that is prepared separately.

We had many items on the menu and loved all of them, the bubble tea was a fun treat. My favorite item was the inari. Everything is prepared fresh and to order.

Upscale, wonderful food! Superb desserts and great location.

Nice atmospher, raw food is better than the cooked

18 Nov 2010

We got so excited to hear of this new restaurant when they opened, and went a few times. The faw food was good, the kale salad was really great. And great desserts. The cooked food was ok, the mock meat is Gardein right out of the package, and not cooked well.

Nice atmosphere

222 1st St N, Cocoa Beach, USA

cute place, great food

18 Nov 2009

What a delight this place was. kid-friendly and most items are vegan, they do have cheese and tuna, but will make those dishes vegan. Baked goods are ok, good not great. Fresh salad, mostly everything is prepared fresh and from scratch.

The kids meals come with an organic juice box & gluten free cookie, but the juice was high in sugar. I suggested they add quinoa to the menu as the dishes would go well with it.

My husband liked his meal so much he had 2nds.

Raw food & Cleansing retreat

18 Nov 2009

I agree with the last review, worth the drive. Beautiful setting, great food, classes and events. A friend worked there so we got to go into the greenhouse, WOW! The best air I ever breathed. need to take a tour, they don't allow you to walk around unsupervised unless you are fasting there.

Large selection of Organic Produce

18 Nov 2009

I also lived down the block from Josh's and have watched this wonderful market grow over the years & have spent many nights hanging at the juice bar (with the previous reviewer too). They have a very large selection of organic produce and during the week during the evening juice bar hours there is a very limited amount of produce at a sale price.

The produce comes from all around the nation but much of it is local to Florida and the east coast. Many of the farms only sell to Josh.

Josh donates a large amount of the produce to local charities.

The prices have dramatically increased recently.

The only non-organic item is the durian, which is a rare find!

Fun and friendly staff

On the busy Hollywood Boardwalk & in open-air, which sometimes means smokers standing very close, but smoking is not permitted in the market or juice bar.

Limited meter parking, but there is a parking garage behind it, they will even validate for a lower cost for parking. Staff will happily help u get your produce to your car.

18 Nov 2010

Lots of local and some organic. Great prices. friendly helpful staff. Open air. This place is truly a gem!

not very vegan friendly

18 Nov 2010

they have one vegan bread and don't seem to have it when I'm there. The smoothies are good. VERY limited for vegans.

Great local Health Food Store

18 Nov 2009

All organic produce, which looks to be fairly fresh. Very friendly and helpful staff, even remembered me a month after my first visit. Easy to return. The pricing is higher than the local Whole Foods, but I'm happy to pay it in order to support this locally owned store. They have great talks and events. Samples, free tea, free coffee and free green juice!

No produce, very small store

18 Nov 2009

They have supplements, packaged foods, a health consultant, alternative otc meds.
Contrary to the listing they do not carry produce (fresh fruits and veggies), also they are a very small store.

2401 PGA Blvd, Ste 136, Palm Beach Gardens, USA

Over priced & bad customer service

18 Nov 2009

Every experience here has been unpleasant. Packaged food is stale, I have been over-charged on a few occasions. The managers are rude, the cashiers are not trained properly, they don't pay attention to what they are doing or to what costumers are saying. They refuse to refund me for an over-charged item that I brought back within the 30 day refund policy.

Also the pricing is so much more expensive than other local health food stores.

Nutrition S'Mart and Whole Foods are much better. Unfortunately I have to go back to use my store credit from the returned stale items, but after that I will not be returning.

Great food, wish it was all veg though

18 Nov 2009

I enjoyed the food so much here that I would surely go back & have! LOTS of the menu is vegan and some raw! and all organic

Would be great if it was all veg though.

Not as good as it was, but getting better

18 Nov 2009

This was once my favorite restaurant in town, and comparable to the great vegan restaurants of NY & CA. Unfortunately after closing due to hurricane damage they re-opened with a new chef and the food was smaller portions, higher priced and not nearly as good. I have been back since - about a year ago, hearing from friends that they are getting better, and indeed they are, but still pale in comparison to how they used to be.

I will go back again, but it wouldn't be my first choice, hence why I haven't gone in over a year.

I suggest making reservations as you can have a wait without one during peak hours.

Would love it if they could do something about the smokers near the front door, that seemed to happen every time I went during the busy hours.

It's a beautiful restaurant.

Good, not great

18 Nov 2009

The cakes (made by a vendor) have for the most part been excellent, the other baked goods and prepared foods, not so much. High prices, but that is the case in most of s. florida health food stores. Only serves lunch.

115B SW 107th Ave, Miami, USA


18 Nov 2009

tried a few dishes all excellent, well worth the drive! Very friendly staff. Great all fresh fruit smoothies.

Different menu daily & sometimes vegan pizza.
Good sized portions

11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Dr, Palm Beach Gardens, USA

Best place to shop

18 Nov 2010

Whole Foods itself is higher priced than other supermarkets, but in this town, the organic produce and health food products they have are actually cheaper than the pricing in the local supermarkets and health food stores. Local produce stands sometime have cheaper organic though.

They now have McDougall Style in prepared food = low or no fat vegan. And clearly marked which ones are with a purple text label.

The staff is very friendly and there are lots of vegan prepared foods, even raw items. The new salad sushi with miso dressing is soooo good! They now carry organic breads, baked fresh. Huge selection of everything I would want. They ensure that all products are gmo free. That is why a few well known soy products are not carried here. Large selection of prepared foods, salad bar and hot food bar.

Easy to return items, even w/o a receipt. Very knowledgeable staff & they will let you sample almost everything. Always samples out around the store and lots of events. Indoor and outdoor eating areas, clean restrooms & eating areas. Lots of local produce.

Located in The Gardens, which is a nice place to walk around & shop.
