This chic, modern cafe has ‘healthy’ written all over it. From the clean, crisp layout to the trendy, nutritious menu – Local Juicery has it all.
We went to the Local Juicery in Flagstaff which is right next to a Barre studio of course! The cliquey crowd is young, good-looking and health-conscious. It is set up as a post-workout/take-away spot with a few small tables along the sides and some stools at the bar, but we still enjoyed our breakfast at the counter.
The menu is loaded with fresh, locally sourced, organic products. Every dish and drink is packed with superfoods, comes beautifully presented, is nutritious and super filling so their slightly higher prices are totally justified. The only down-side is that the food comes out at different times due to limited staff and their grab-and-go concept. The take-away fridge is super helpful if you are in a rush and need nourishing, fuelling food for your journey.
We started with their creative, luxurious drinks. We had the Lifeline Smoothie which is a thick meal in itself. Made with cold brew coffee, almond mylk, banana, date, almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla bean – it is sweet and a tad indulgent, but totally worth it. We had to try the Superfood Coffee too. It is a French press Cartel coffee with maca, tocos, almond butter, cacao powder, coconut crystals mucuna pruriens – it tastes like a super glamorous hot-coco! Nice and thick, creamy and delicious. Both filling, nourishing drinks are highly recommended.
Because we had a big day ahead, we had some food too. We have had our fair share of avocado toasts, but we have never had an Avocado Toast like this before! The nutritional yeast and cashew cream on top gives a unique creamy ‘cheesy’ taste to this deliciously light dish. We had to try the waffles, and The Works Waffles did not disappoint. It is an indulgent, decadent plate of chocolatey-almond-butter goodness that will leave you feeling full and ready for the day ahead. We took some Superfood Oat Bars for the road, and we are so glad we did! These yummy bars are very filling and have the perfect soft, chewy consistency. Great for a breakfast on the go.
If you are in Northern Arizona and in need of a healthy, wholesome café with a touch of modern zen, head to the nearest Local Juicery.
