Need to re-energize while shopping? Escape the food court and head over to Juice and Java located behind the Boca Town Center Mall on St. Andrews Boulevard in Boca Raton, FL. The bright café serves a plethora of healthy options including wraps, crepes and organic pasta, as well as a menu filled with specialty juices and all-natural smoothies.
Whether you are looking to take a break in the modern cafe or grab a freshly prepared snack to-go so you can head back to the shoe department at Neimans, you can be sure any selection on the menu will be a good option, since everything is made with natural ingredients and nothing contains artificial preservatives.
What we ordered – Avocado Cups, Strawberry Spritzer, Iced Green Tea, and Portabella Wrap.
What we thought – We highly suggest trying the Avocado Cups, listed on the menu as a starter, the two avocado halves are filled with fresh tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese and served on a bed of organic greens. This light and healthy snack will keeps you full and satisfied so you can race through the dressing room in record speed.
There are a variety of wraps listed on the menu, we tried the Portabella wrap: grilled portabella mushrooms, and organic brown rice with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, red cabbage, sprouts, and bell peppers. It was a fresh salad rolled into a hand held wrap. We suggest ordering this item with a side of dressing.
Drinks: Get your daily dose of vitamin C with the Strawberry Spritzer – This refreshing beverage boasts a hearty puree of strawberries infused in sparkling water. It was light, quenching, and simple! Perfect for a sweltering Florida afternoon.
The Iced Green Tea was served with two large mint leaves and had a hint of sweetness. This refreshing drink is a perfect on-the-go pick me up and a great alternative to coffee. But if you are in need of a cup of joe, Juice and Java (obviously) has you covered with a few options to help get you through the day.
The Verdict: Don’t worry about missing a sale. The service is speedy and there are plenty of tables inside and out for you to enjoy your food. The only thing that might take awhile is deciding what to order! The menu is huge! But just think…in the amount of time it would have taken you to find a healthy option in the mall food court, pry yourself away from the pretty cupcake counter and score a clean table, you can sit back, indulge and restore your shopping mojo right down the street at Juice and Java.
