TRIBAL ALL DAY CAFE
What started as fresh pressed juice has turned into an adorable cafe in Bishop Arts serving us up healthy breakfast, lunches and dinners! The ingredients are of the best quality and locally sourced and in fact, they say it best: “Our local farm friends raise cage free eggs and sustainable cheeses from happy chickens and cows... We believe in nourishment and quality over any exclusive diet."

BREWED + PRESSED
If you’re up on the latest and greatest health food, this place is definitely for you. Brewed + Pressed is your typical coffee shop, just taken one step further. In addition to coffee and tea, they serve up shakes and juices using superfood ingredients, like pumpkin seed milk or blue majik, and they have healthy breakfast items, like vegetarian bowls.

Truly a dream for vegans and healthy eaters around, the Dream Cafe offers a breakfast and brunch menu that caters to all types of food preferences. While they can swap out regular cheese on an omelette for soy cheese, or regular sausage for veggie sausage, they’re 100% consistent in using organic and local ingredients in addition to hormone-free meat.
This might seem like just another build-your-own salad bowl concept, but it’s a lot more than that. At Mixt, you can choose one of their well-balanced and nutritious signature salads, opt for a market plate and choose your own main, 2 sides and house-made sauce or go for a hearty (but healthy) grain bowl!
The best part? They only source from farms and purveyors they trust, and always keep pesticides, chemicals and GMO’s out of their recipes.
