“great local place for light food and smoothies in isla verde”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

easy, friendly juice bar/light lunch place where they totally get that not every tourist wants to eat fast food at chain restaurants. this place was sorely needed in isla verde, and i hope they stay around for a long time. across the street from the kfc and ponderosa on isla verde avenue, a little bit west of calle tartak, in the condomino los corales building. if you drive, may be tough to find a place to park.

“Great wraps!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

The food here is delicious! The prices are great as well. Definitely recommended if you are in the Isla Verde area! However, is it is very difficult to find parking if you are coming from another area of town.

“Great juice bar/restaurant with organic & local flavors.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

What a great find!

Very close to our hotel (Ritz Carleton) and much more reasonably priced than any of the hotel restaurants. Very nice staff who gave us some personal recommendations on what to do in San Juan. Food and juices were excellent. Highly recommend!

“Excellent , Excellent !!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stumbled upon this place and boy , am I ever glad I did ! Delicious fruit and vegetable drinks and delicious food at awesome prices! My favorite is the " Mr. Green(s?) " which is an amazing blend of coconut, cilantro, limes etc ...I forget....but it is sooooooo good and so fresh! Also, I had a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs-and the bread that accompanies it-to die for. Yum!

“Quality, Price, Service.... What a change from the status quo in Isla Verde!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I'm currently living in Isla Verde for work. My girlfriend and I saw the "opening soon" sign for this place a few months ago and were telling each other we would try it when it opened. Ever since the first time we stepped into this little place we have been nothing but pleased. We make it over here together at least once a week now! The service is amazing which is saying a lot in Puerto Rico where this area has a lot to be desired. The food is always super fresh, very tasty, and always comes at a reasonable price. I recommend that if you are staying in the El San Juan, The Ritz-Carlton, or Embassy Suites then you take a walk over here once or twice while you're on vacation! They serve an excellent breakfast and have some very healthy lunch options as well. The best part of all of this is that everything comes at a very reasonable price. We usually eat lunch and get a smoothie for less than 25$. So when you get tired of the same old stuff or you have a hangover, swing by and you will be impressed as well. On a side note, we just got a Labrador puppy and they welcome anyone with dogs. They provide water bowls and the dogs can come inside.
