Heirloom Juices Co.

Heirloom Juice Co. Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoAfter yoga practice, my yogi classmates went to Heirloom for lunch. Some of us grabbed a smoothie, which I was tempted to get, but instead got the salad instead. I thought that we would get the already packaged salad in the glass refrigerated deli case, so even though I wanted the Kale Slaw, since it had sliced almonds in it, I got the Kale Caeser $8.95 instead which only had kale, capers and croutons. I wished it had all the goodies that the Slaw had, minus the nuts.

The salad was pretty good with an interesting, unique dressing. I still would have like more variety of ingredients, but that is my fault for not asking if they could make a Kale Slaw without almonds. Still, it was filling and felt really healthy just eating it. I find it pricey though considering they are not organic, GMO free or anything (at least not what I could find on their website).

It’s mostly as take-out place since there are only like 3 counter seats along the window. The staff was friendly and cheerful.

The next time I went, I ordered the Kale Slaw without almonds. Mmm! So good. No wonder so many of my classmates always order and rave about it. It’s got a variety of ingredients. Fresh, good and healthy :)

Buddha Full

Click to add a blog post for Buddha-Full on ZomatoI met up with my friend who is pretty health conscious, especially when it comes to food, so I thought this place would be the perfect place to grab a bite. I was curious about the place, but was happy to hear that she enjoys their smoothies. They serve organic and gluten free food/juices and opened in 2010. The place is a bit hidden, and can easily be missed – I walked by it (though on the other side of the road)

It was a hot summer day, and the cafe inside was sweltering hot and humid. After we picked up our orders, we took it outside onto the patio. There were several ants crawling on our chairs, and flying ants…
The heated samosa was really, really good. The size was quite generous and the softer shell than most other samosas I’ve had made it easier to eat. I would definitely come back for these.
The drink was rich. It had strawberries, pineapple, orange, beets with rose water. It seemed like all the goodness was juiced into one cup. Super dark colour that could easily dye, so watch out light-coloured clothes!
Service was satisfactory. The interior has a a couple of tables with seats and with a shop that included things like soap, jewellery, candles, etc.
