Ever since Florida Juice and Bowl opened up over a year ago I have been wanting to try it. Not only is it super close to where I live it just puts off this really cool beachy and healthy vibe that I wanted to be a part of. Florida Juice and bowl is located in Jacksonville Beach and was recently voted best Acai bowl in the 904. In addition to acai bowls they have fresh juices, coffee (including nitro brew), kambucha on tap, smoothies, pitaya bowls and poke bowls.
My husband and I stopped by to get kambucha, cold pressed coffee with macadamia milk, tuna poke and a salmon poke. I loved all of the add ons for the poke and they let you choose all lettuce, rice or a mixture of lettuce and rice. Add ons include things like macadamia nuts, avocado, seaweed salad, cucumber, ginger, wasabi, spinach, avocado, etc. I opted for the spicy aioli on the side and my husband opted for the Shoyu Wasabi sauce which he said was much spicier than mine.
It was delicious and I felt really safe because I didn’t see gluten anywhere except in the sauces that contained soy sauce and those are optional. It is a little pricer than most lunch spots but you definitely get what you pay for. Everything we had tasted so fresh. In talking with one of the staff they pretty much make everything in house and try to avoid refined sugars or sugar at all. The constant sound of delicious fresh smoothies being made filled the air during lunch. I also liked that almost all of the disposable items were biodegradable.
This is definitely the kind of place I will crave and I will be back!
