Since opening their first location in 1996, Robeks Fruit Smoothie and Healthy Eats sends their customers well on their way to consuming their recommended daily intake for fruits vegetables, all through a portable smoothie. Customers can step up to the counter and order from a menu of berry, tropical, and “power” smoothies, the latter of which are named for extra boosts of vitamins A and C, fiber, and protein infused in the drink. Nearly a dozen different supplements lend their revitalizing nutrients to the menu, helping create power smoothies like the metabolism-boosting Venice Burner and the heart-healthy Cardio Cooler. Robeks also offers wraps, salads, and gourmet stuffed pretzels, and oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip “power” cookies. Each Robeks location makes a concerted effort to support the neighborhood it resides in, through local organizations, such as Save the Children.
Stationed in an old house of the city's historic district, Roswell Teahouse looks and feels like a relict from the 1920s. But it's not just the appearance that takes guests back in time. For inside, the spirit of high tea lives on. Elegant trays support homemade desserts, scones, and lemon curd, all enjoyed by diners dressed in their afternoon best as they chat and politely arm-wrestle over cups of tea. The 100 different types of leaves hail from across the globe, steeping slowly in a cast-iron tea pot to maximize flavor.
For lunch, Roswell serves a variety of homemade and organic meals, including a Belgian chicken pot pie and green-apple tuna melt. Many of its offerings are designed to improve wellness, such as the beauty booster salad, which comes with omega-3 oils and vitamins.
Every 36 hours, the dairy mavens at Rita’s Italian Ice scrap their inventory of frozen custard and italian ice and begin churning batches of frozen treats anew. Because freshness is paramount at Rita’s, customers may find only a few of the menu’s full cast of 40 flavors each day. But servers can merge those flavors into countless combinations: the misto, for instance, blends italian ice and custard in equal proportions, and the gelati layers strata of italian ice and frozen custard. Additionally, servers scoop up fat-free Slenderita and sugar-free italian ice for desserts that prove as wholesome and frozen as an ice sculpture of Mr. Rogers.
