Fake "Fresh Kitchen" - Edit

We just ate our Sunday breakfast at this location off St. Andrews in central Boca. We were optimistic since there is a Fresh Kitchen right by our house in east Boca which we enjoy, but were exceedingly disappointed. The ambience alone seems thrown together and not paticularly clean. The half empty "grab and go" coolers look like they were purchased off Craigslist with dust bunnies fluttering to and fro off the vents at the base. Above the juice bar on the office type ceiling, there are deglected dirty air conditioning vents looming over all the open, fresh veggies and fruit!

Noone said a word to us (although they saw us) when we first walked in or when we left. The waitress needed a double shot of espresso. She shuffled around like she worked in a school cafeteria. She couldnt offer basic courtesies and seemed dazed by our questions. When we asked if they had brown sugar for my husband's oatmeal she mumbled "we don't have any". My husband asked for an extra coffee mug (since the coffee was almost over-flowing and he couldn't add creamer) and she never brought it. We also asked if they use organic eggs. She shook her head no. No organic eggs? No free range eggs? Just regular old eggs in a "healthy" option restaurant. When the waitress brought out my husbands "sesame ring" aka bagel. It was untoasted and not sliced in half. After attempting and failing to slice it himself with the butter knife provided, we asked her if we could have it sliced and toasted to which she retorted, "There is a knife on the table".

Additionally, there are very little vegan options for breakfast... unless you want a smoothie or acai bowl.

This will be our first and last time at this location.

Pros: too little to write

Cons: too MANY to write

Lots of Choices - Edit

There are many items to choose from, but they are mostly he same ingredients arranged in different ways. Salads, wraps, burgers. Fresh juices are wonderful. The menu does not differentiate between vegetarian, vegan and meat, so you really need to ask a lot of questions. In saying that, the waitress was pretty knowledgeable about what was vegan. Casual atmosphere with outdoor tables. The place kind of reminds me like a place at the food court in a mall. Food is decent.

Pros: Many Selections, Fast service and meal prep, Fabulous fresh juices

Cons: Menu does not state what is vegan, Tough to park

It was alright... - Edit

Very few choices for a vegan. The items I've tried are just eh. The falafel pita is very inferior to the real thing. If they added more vegan menu items i would go more often since it is so close. The mini vegan cupcakes were okay but tasted "vegan" and were overpriced. I bake way better ones at home.

Great Smoothies - Edit

Loved the smoothies. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is extensive. I would have liked it better if they noted on the menu which items are vegan instead of me having to ask on every item I was interested in.

Pros: vegan items, fresh juices and smoothies, outdoor seating

Cons: vegan items not noted, not enough vegan food items

Large Menu & Vegan Friendly - Edit

First, they have adorable, delicious, mini vegan cupcakes that they get from a vegan baker in miami!

Second, they have a huge menu and lots options for vegans. They aren't marked as such, and the waitstaff isn't always sure about what vegans don't eat, but some are more knowledgeable than others. (one served my cupcakes with dairy whipped cream.)

Favorite Quick Stop for Veggie/Vegan Food - Edit

Juice and Java has a wide range of veggie and vegan friendly food (soy cheese substitutes, etc). My favorite quick lunch is the avocado pita melt. The black bean soup is also delicious. They have a menu online that shows their extensive selection. The only downside is that sometimes it is quite crowded around noon.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, extensive menu , healthy cuisine

Cons: occassionally crowded

kindlizard 22 Feb 2013 - you make it sound like you stumbled upon this place but it is your name on here. just be cool, hang out and don't force it. perhaps if you want to talk about your vegan options since you have no web link.
