This small food truck has all kind of fresh dishes, salad and fruit smoothies mostly from their garden right there next to the beach. Enjoy the ocean breeze at their picnic tables. The service was a bit slow but it's a great example of sustainability...More

Carta Buena is a lovely spot to get an organic smoothie, juices and refreshments. The view is beautiful, it is overlooking the garden where they use fresh ingredients. Very delicious and nutritious :)

Have been there three times. I love the fact that they have their own organic garden for some of the products and they use a cold press juicer for some items. Totally recommended!

This small stand has excellent juices and smoothies and their ocean and garden view is amazing. Very relaxing to sit down and enjoy the smoothie while looking at the ocean, or just walk through their own garden.

Most of their stuff is Gluten Free. My daughter had a creamsicle smoothie every day and the Gluten Free Banana Bread. Not sure about the aspartame.

We serve delicious Food, Juices, Smoothies, & Coffee in our own organic gardens. We are not nutritionists, fitness gurus or a lifestyle brand. We don't sell cleanses or medicine. We just make delicious things that are also good for you. Our menu is designed around the Puerto Rican Harvest Calendar and we use what we grow in our gardens. We source our other fresh ingredients locally and organically. Our juices are made with a hydraulic cold press to maximize the benefits. This pressing action doesn't heat or oxidize the produce. The result is a nutritionally packed, live juice that is loaded with enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals & other vital elements that tastes fresh and delicious. Thanks for trying us out.
