With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.

Early each day, the cooks at Mady's Deli & Cafe assemble more than 40 fresh ingredients for their salad bar, chopping up juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and other organic vegetables as they bubble up pots of hard-boiled eggs on the stove. They gather fresh mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, lay out bowls of plump raisins and crunchy sunflower seeds, and craft batches of homemade dressings such as blue cheese, mandarin-orange vinaigrette, and fat-free Italian. Throughout the day, the cooks fold these mostly organic ingredients into customized salads, inviting diners to pick out greens, toppings, dressings, and astrological signs for their unique creations. When not building salads, the chefs slice up a variety of specialty sandwiches, layering crusty rolls with pastrami, roast beef, and grilled chicken. They also extend their culinary expertise to homemade soups and specialty entrees, such as baked lamb and stuffed cabbage. As the cooks busy themselves in the kitchen, their guests can relax beneath colorful umbrellas on the front patio with a cold glass of wine and beer.

After nearly 20 years under the command of Top Chef star Chef Carlos Fernandez, Hi-Life Café has recently ascended into a new realm under the rule of Chef Virgil Woodard, a master of new-wave American cuisine. According to a feature in the Sun Sentinel Woodard's training in architecture and keen eye for art and symmetry become apparent upon first glimpse of his dishes, each embellished with his signature hand-carved vegetable garnishes. Yet the ornate frills are only the start of the meal’s elegance. Fresh jalapeños packed with shrimp and wrapped in bacon—Cajun Kisses—prelude a full menu of classic American fare with an upscale twist. He transforms pastas with unique sauces, such as a southwestern spin on bolognese and a classic mushroom and madeira wine sauce infused with brie, and he pairs high-end strip steak, pork loin, and seafood with fresh, internationally inspired accoutrements.

The interior of Hi-Life Café mirrors the chic style of the entrees. Candlelight flickers across tasteful urban art photography from John Fifield and Streetmurals.net, creating the ideal ambiance for a dinner date or impromptu murder-mystery game. A granite-topped wine bar hosts a selection of sips, as well as fresh flower arrangements rivaled only by the elegant roses adorning each and every table.
