The juice bar is a unique place to get that out of the way mix of vegatables and citrus mixed together.

Great whole, clean food and it's very tasty. Breakfast or lunch, you can always count on getting a very good made-from-scratch meal from Main Squeeze.

Wow--great little place for breakfast in the heart of downtown CoMo. Our group tried lots of different items and found everything to be excellent. Cashier seemed a little grumpy, but it was a busy morning. Rest of the folks working there were super friendly! Try it, you'll like it!

Hi weathermankc! Are you really a weather man in kc?!?! if so, cool! I wanted to thank you for coming in and then taking time to write that review.

We shared the TLT (tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo on sourdough) and the Catalpa (rice, beans, cheese, onion, tomato, enchilada sauce, sour cream, sprouts & sunflower seeds) - both were excellent! There are a couple of outdoor tables so we sat outside. It was nice and the food was awesome. If I lived in Columbia, this would be my go-to... More

Always great and consistent food with a mind to buying the food where you eat it. Enjoyed the Ruby, Sunshine burger, lavender iced tea and curious George smoothy. Staff friendly and service fast for food made especially for you. ***. A true Columbia staple.

One of the few vegetarian/vegan options in this area. Great variety of items. Good quality. Wish I was staying longer so I could stop by again!

This is the kind of food Olympic Athletes eat. Fresh, nutritious, the kind of food that heals disease. The Nell salad was perfect. The Wrap was filling and satisfying( hard to do with vegetarian food) besides tasting oh so good!The Regenerator juice was almost identical to a green juice I was making for myself to heal from cancer.

We go here a lot after church and you can get brunch as well as sandwiches. They use locally grown products when they can. Wraps, eggs, sandwiches and bowls are all good. They have different soups depending on what they can get fresh.

It's a smallish place in a college town and can get quite busy.But it's worth a wait in line for any of their wonderful salads or sandwiches. Love their lavender lemonade!

I am neither a vegan nor a vegetarian BUT dropped in to see what was on the wall menu. Given the large number of choices, I figured "Why Not?". I started with a large carrot juice to go along with my 'hail kale' and the 'Buddha'. To my steak-n-potato brethren, the food was excellent and the staff very comfortable in... More
