From the moment you walk into the Love Yourself Café, you're in for a surprising treat. The ceilings are high, there's plenty of natural light, and the walls have a peaceful golden hue. You'll be presented with a small glass of "love water," which is a light green blend of coconut water, cucumber, apple juice, silica and cell food. The seasonal menu has plenty of vegan options, but always features warm elixirs that are loaded with good-for-your-body-and-mind ingredients. The namesake Love Yourself smoothie ($15) has an earthy, slightly chocolatey taste that you can sweeten if you desire. If you're not down for the elixir experience, this is one place where you'll probably feel better after taking shots. Juices and probiotics are offered in 2.5-ounce shots or 8-ounce "shooters" ($4-$9). The wide-ranging menu runs from superfood oatmeal ($10.50) to more adventurous caprese eggs Benedict ($14) at breakfast. Lunch and dinner include pizza options, ethnic bowl combinations and a satisfying spaghetti squash ($15) that's served heaping with fresh tomato basil sauce and quinoa "meatballs." Dessert features cakes and breads that are baked in-house and range from the sweet to the savory. Dig in—you'll love yourself for trying it.
