About this Business
From Our Editors
Organic food helped save Maria Ray's life. After undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor enveloping her colon, Maria used nutritional therapies, which involve eating organic whole foods, to improve her health. She and her family wanted to share this knowledge with others, so they opened Maria's Organic Fountain–certified "green" by the Green Restaurant Association and one of the only organic restaurants in Indian River Valley. In addition to serving 100% organic fare, the café aims to provide a healthy and educational environment, evident in menu items such as the Hippocrates soup, which comes with Hippocratic Oath–printed napkins. Additionally, the staff are educated in dietary needs and food-therapy diets. They even use non-toxic food-based hydrogen peroxide to kill germs as well as organic cooking oil.
