We absolutely loved this place, we ended up eating there 6 times during our trip. Their juices and smoothies are so delicious. The staff is equally as friendly. Like all of montezuma it is sleepy and slow so be prepared to spend some time there....More

Signature smoothie is avocado, mango and coconut milk -- mmm! Nice for a light breakfast and one of only a handful of places where we found good coffee in Montezuma.
