For Greeks, the word opa can take on a whole host of meanings?from an exclamation after a blooper to the beckoning of a stranger to come on over. The folks at Opa Life Greek Cafe beckon their diners to live like a Greek (or at least to eat like one) and the menu features an array of items even more eclectic than the meaning of the restaurant's name. From breakfast to happy hour and late into the evening, the chefs prepare both classic and contemporary dishes such as stuffed grape leaves, beef souvlaki, and gyro wraps laser-engraved with each customer's name.
Although Barista Cafe has been making headlines with its scantily clad servers—women dressed in bikini-like ensembles—the menu's fresh, healthful cuisine remains the backbone of the business. Instead of frying or dipping ingredients in a natural lake of frosting, the café’s cooks fold them into nutritious meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Jump Start, a smorgasbord of eggs, ham, bacon, green chilies, pepper jack cheese, and salsa, gets mornings underway when paired with a steaming cup of coffee. For later meals, efficient service and to-go options ensure ample time to devour salads, sandwiches, and wraps, such as the Hawaiian Tropic, which is stuffed with grilled chicken, pineapple, and a housemade soy-dijon sauce.
Once you have a juice from True Juice in your possession, you have three days to consume it in order to get the most benefits from the drink. That's because True Juice's juice-makers cold-press their raw fruit- and veggie-filled beverages and never pasteurize them, ensuring that they're chockfull of beneficial micronutrients and live enzymes. They encourage customers to detoxify their bodies with these juices and their protein smoothies, which they create using vegan-friendly pea protein.
The team then delivers its wares, including everything needed for a one-, three-, or five-day cleanse, to homes. Clients can also visit True Juice's various kiosks to pick up the drinks in person or send a couple of carrier pigeons there.
A glass-fronted display cooler showcases J&M Fish Market's fillets and shellfish, which are flown in daily and approved by third-party inspectors for optimum freshness.

In addition to its signature fresh seafood, J and M serves up fried chicken and fried fish, as well as house-smoked meats topped with regular or spicy barbecue sauce. They round out their menu with nachos, tacos, and burgers. They also prepare food for carry out, delivery, and catering, appeasing those who wish to enjoy tasty meals on the go or in the comfort of their own in-home restaurant.
Packed with trace minerals, vitamins, and enzymes, Juicd Life's fresh, cold-pressed juices are designed to refresh and revitalize.
