I tried The Vegetable Bar recently for a juice smoothie and was not disappointed. Everything was clean. The location overlooked the river so it was relaxing and pretty. The smoothie was mixed as I watched from fresh fruits and vegetables. Everything was very good.

Try their chicken pot pie! Some of the best ever. They also have all you can eat fish and chips / or shrimp and chips that will keep you coming back on a regular basis. There is something for everyone at this place.
