Choices Kitchen and Choices Cafe are two 100% vegan and organic restaurants recently created by the same ownership in Miami...the land of few vegan options.
Choices Cafe serves the full Choices menu - wraps, salads, and quinoa bowls, filled with house-made 'meats' made from lentils, walnuts and garbanzos. You can even choose to wrap your meal in an organic collard leaf! They have an amazing selection of house-baked gluten free goodies, and even raw treats. In addition to the food, they offer a selection of organic, vegan beer and wine, as well as an entire line of cold pressed organic juices. Personal fav is the green machine, with kale, spinach, spirulina, cayenne, apple, lemon and sea salt...yum! And you can bring your furry friends, because there is a cozy side patio that is pet-friendly.
At Choices Kitchen the daily plate (which is a steal at $12) includes an entree, a salad, a cup of soup and unlimited organic iced tea. The venue is spacious and open. The plate of the day is posted on their website, and includes anything from comfort foods such as mac n' cheeze or tacos, to raw delights of pesto zucchini noodles and walnut pate. The full menu is also served here daily. After your done eating, browse the organic marketplace showcasing rare finds such as organic, gluten free cereals to soy-free 'soy sauce'. And don't forget to bring your own bag, or take one from the 'give a bag - take a bag' bucket next to the cash register!
If you're in Miami, stopping by one or both of the Choices' locations is a must for any foodie!
