Lastly, we ordered the mushroom flatbread. There are three flatbreads, including one Hawaiian style made with jackfruit that sounds amazing. This is a big ole pizza-like shebang for $10, with mushrooms, walnuts, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and topped with red onion, parsley, mint, and lemon juice on top of a whole lot of melted cheese. I think they use Daiya - I'm not sure, I should have asked, but it seemed like Daiya - so if you don't absolutely adore Daiya or just a lot of cheese in general, ask for less cheese than usual. I don't mind Daiya - I'd prefer if they switched to Violife, which is the best and would be amazing even in an overdose - so the one change I'd make is the lemon juice. I don't think it's necessary and I think that was the culprit that detracted from the goodness overall of all the rest of the ingredients. There was something just a tad off, sharp, and I think it was lemon juice. The mushrooms and cheesiness without it would be like creamy and warm and amazing. The mushroom and nut mix is a great idea to add more substance, and the bread was a little crispy and a little chewy. Overall it was pretty good.
Anyway, that's enough about food. Juice Merchant also has a killer drinks menu - juices, smoothies, and coffee! I didn't take a pic of the coffee options because I'm not a coffee drinker but even so I was still impressed by the extensive list.
Okay I'll stop. It's all the best. I've never seen those Avocado Truffles before and I'm not sure if they're Vegan Treats or Juice Merchant-made but I loved them!
Aside from the VT, there's MORE dessert that is indeed house-made, and it's amazing. We tried the chia pudding and the avocado mousse that you can sort of see in the big display case picture below. Both were SO good. I think I preferred the avocado mousse more even though I'm a huge chia head (ch ch ch chia!) because they made that subtle cocoa flavor just spot on.
The best part (how many best parts did I already say there were?) aside from the great food and drinks and the amazing desserts was how nice the staff was. And that there's a big clean bathroom. And that they give a discount for teachers which I LOVE. Hooray for being kind to teachers. I can't get over how perfect this place is and how close it is to my USA home. I can't wait to go back and I highly recommend that you go if you can. Next time I think the chocolate peanut butter banana whip will be my first order of business. Or the carrot-maca juice. Or the blue magik smoothie. Or the veggie burger; I must try theirs! Or the cabbage and seitan salad! Oh my god I want everything. Who am I kidding it will be the peanut butter mousse cakey-pie thing. Okay now I'm hungry and I have to cook for myself ughhhhh. Go and enjoy!
