Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
$$
“What an awesome vegan, juice, healthy, little hipster spot to get your body back in check after a night out in South Beach. The menu at this place was excellent and the smells even better. Juice & Java had everything from healthy burgers, sweet potatoes as a side, to giant avocado toast dishes, and smoothies and juice. If I wasn't so mentally set on ordering an açaí bowl I think I would have dived head first into the falafel quinoa.”
