A great spot to take a breather amongst the organic garden with a fresh juice in hand. Locals and tourists alike delight in its colors and tastes.

This small stand has excellent juices and smoothies and their ocean and garden view is amazing. Very relaxing to sit down and enjoy the smoothie while looking at the ocean, or just walk through their own garden.

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.
