BUT they have their own huge organic garden where they grow some of the ingredients used for their amazing smoothies, salads, wraps, juices, etc. You can walk around to literally see what you eat. They offer a nice selection of healthy... More

I purchased a vegetable wrap and ginger pressed drink. The total was 16.00 dollars. It's was pre made food. It was okay but way overpriced for two roll and 16oz drink.NO BATHROOM AVAILABLE. I would not recommend it.

So good! So healthful! And my favorite part was their garden, just lovely! I sorta thought the idea of the homegrown veggies was so nice, that's at least half the appeal. I only saw this restaurant come up on Google for vegetarian restaurants open during midday in Rincon, but we also drove by another one just a couple minutes down,... More

Loved the small place with its bright colors and natural landscape. Fresh meals for anyone who is looking for healthy options in the area. I had the best Chia Pudding ever!

Stopped here for a smoothie and a shot of juice. Both were very fresh and tasty. The woman at truck was friendly and helpful. She told us that we could walk around the farm area to see the crops that they use in their smoothies, juices, and snacks. Good stuff!

This small food truck has all kind of fresh dishes, salad and fruit smoothies mostly from their garden right there next to the beach. Enjoy the ocean breeze at their picnic tables. The service was a bit slow but it's a great example of sustainability with compost and all.

We serve delicious Food, Juices, Smoothies, & Coffee in our own organic gardens. We are not nutritionists, fitness gurus or a lifestyle brand. We don't sell cleanses or medicine. We just make delicious things that are also good for you. Our menu is designed around the Puerto Rican Harvest Calendar and we use what we grow in our gardens. We source our other fresh ingredients locally and organically. Our juices are made with a hydraulic cold press to maximize the benefits. This pressing action doesn't heat or oxidize the produce. The result is a nutritionally packed, live juice that is loaded with enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals & other vital elements that tastes fresh and delicious. Thanks for trying us out.
