If you’re the type to seek out the best coffee and/or acai bowl when you arrive at your destination, Raw & Juicy is probably exactly what you’re looking for. Nestled just across from Alys Beach, Raw & Juicy offers healthy, organic fare from overnight oats to fresh acai bowls. They also serve up unexpectedly excellent waffles, coconut curry soup, and salads and sandwiches. Expect a casual-sophisticated atmosphere, not unlike what you’d find on a gorgeous Hawaiian beach. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available to relax and enjoy your meal. An expansive smoothie menu ensures that there’s something for practically everyone–from picky pint-sized visitors to health-conscious beachgoers in search of the ultimate green smoothie.
Raw & Juicy is also a great stop for a more robust breakfast or lunch. Each vegan- or vegetarian-friendly menu option is packed with flavor. Prices are a bit high, in line with other Alys Beach restaurants, but the excellent flavors and higher-than-average quality ingredients make the splurge more than worth it, especially if you’re looking for something you can grab to eat on the sand.
Some of our favorite menu selections are…
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
It’s hard to go wrong with a bowl of tomato soup and a melty grilled cheese sandwich. Raw & Juicy offers both vegan and vegetarian options for this menu. No matter which you choose, expect hot, creamy, well-seasoned tomato soup with a hot-off-the-griddle grilled cheese sandwich that’ll keep you coming back for more.
Loaded Potato Skillet
A hearty, veggie-rich skillet that’s full of flavor, the Loaded Potato Skillet combines crispy roasted potatoes, broccoli, shiitake mushroom bacon, cashew sour cream, and Brazil nut cheese. It’s all the flavor and personality of a loaded baked potato or a traditional breakfast skillet hash–but served up with fresh, vegan alternatives.
Raw & Juicy’s acai bowl is a work of beauty. Their fresh acai sorbet is topped with fresh fruit, bee pollen, hemp hearts, granola, and your choice of peanut butter or almond butter. Even the most selective smoothie bowl aficionados approve of this fully-loaded take on the island classic.
Pina Verde Juice
You’ll find a huge variety of freshly-extracted juices at Raw & Juicy, but a favorite by far is their Pina Verde juice. This juice is sweet and fresh, made from pineapple, kale, celery, apple, cilantro, and lime juices. It’s a light, fresh way to start the day with a burst of nutrients and energy.
