No two people are exactly the same, so it would be difficult for them to benefit from the exact same juice cleanse. The ayurvedic term for each body's unique constitution is dosha; at Organico Juice Bar & Cafe, staff members create juice cleanses and detoxes according to not only the customer's fitness goals and handwriting analysis, but also his or her dosha. The juices that go into these cleanses and appear on the menu are raw and organic, with no added sugars or preservatives. Other menu items include organic salads, sandwiches, and sweet treats.
Byblos Cafe & Grill pays homage to its namesake – the city of Byblos, Lebanon – with Lebanese dishes served beneath arched doorways that recall Lebanese architecture. Ornate chandeliers, blush-hued pillars, and walls painted with faux stone surround guests as they dine on the same Mediterranean fare at both of the eatery’s two locations. Skewers hold marinated chicken and lamb while the grill leaves its imprint. Falafel is served with a side of hummus, either wrapped in a pita or stuffed, like a love letter from a short-order cook, inside a burger bun. Classic Lebanese dishes, from meat shawarma to grape leaves, also arrive in the form of a toasted wrap.
An offshoot of the Innate Healing Arts Center, the Golden Gate Cafe nourishes the body with a menu of meat-free tempeh burgers, mushroom stir-fry dishes, soups, and fresh fruit smoothies. Guests feed their cells vital nutrients with salads made from kale, house-pickled beets, and lentils, or snack on handmade hummus and citrus-splashed guacamole. Far more than a mere restaurant, Golden Gate Vegetarian Cafe aims to foster a sense of community, with new friends getting to know each other over cups of organic tea and coffee, with live music in the background to provide a soundtrack for intense vegetable chewing.
It's clear that Socra Tea's priorities are tea and art.

Along with its focus on the environment and local artists, Socra Tea aims to accommodate visitors by offering gluten-free desserts and nondairy milk options, including almond milk.
In the kitchen of Half Time Cafe, you won't find a fryer, or even a freezer. That's because everything on the menu is made fresh and to-order, from the melty chicken quesadilla to a cool quinoa salad mixed with fresh veggies. Freshly brewed coffee is available all day, alongside espresso drinks such as americanos and lattes, as well as wraps and sandwiches lined with just-cracked eggs, tomato, crisp spinach, and feta cheese.
