I went for the first time thinking just about the smoothies. I was pleasantly surprised by all the other items on their menu. I had a delicious meal that didn't include anything fried at a good price.

The wraps and smoothies here are top notch. My wife introduced me to this place and I've been back many times, never to be disappointed. The owner of the shop works a lot of hours and provides excellent personal service. He has trained his staff to follow his example. Every smoothie I've had (and have tried 4 different ones) is...

Quality smoothies at a reasonable price. Try the "green" smoothie. It's made with spinach and kale, just delicious. They also have great sandwiches. You can get a full smoothie with a half sandwich for about $7.

Just like the title says, the service seemed much slower than even a Jamba Juice or other Smoothie place, but the staff was very friendly and the smoothies tasted fresh and satisfying. Even though we enjoyed our smoothies off-premise, the place seemed a little dirty. There were very few guests there (maybe 5- but they were all together)

Tropical Smoothie Cafe has a surprisingly tasty and varied lunch menu in addition to delicious smoothies. The chicken pesto flatbed sandwich is a yummy option.
