Very good smoothies made with fresh tropical juices. Very reasonably priced as well. There is a nice shaded spot to sit out front and do some people watching.

Too bad we only found this place the last 2 days. Great variety, amazing taste and sorry we can't import the fruit...

While some of the smoothies and juices are a bit expensive, some of the recommended "favorites" aren't so bad. Their juices are refreshing and the staff is nice.

Great smoothies with tons of options. Yogurt and granola bowls look great. $4 for large smoothie. Kids will like it too.

When ordering, it was a little difficult because they didn't speak much English. The smoothie was really good. Was very refreshing on a hot day.

I'm not sure how it can take up to 5 minutes to make a single smoothie, but Mandarina seems to pull it off frequently. The good news is that the drinks are delish.

I go to this little place EVERY month when I visit from Denver. BEST chocolate shakes on the planet, priced right. The smoothies are excellent also.
