Highly nutritious food that taste out of this world. Get fresh made juices as well. Carry out or dine in. This is my way to stay healthy and eat well with a delicious menu. Quesedillas, Wraps, Salads, and other combinations. Fresh fruit and veggie juices. And MORE.

This place is a little pricey but then you are on an island and everything has to get here the long way round. We had delicious lentil soup and wraps. Very hearty and carefully crafted.

Tasty, trendy, healthy and a bit "groovy" according to my lunch date .... The bean and corn bowl with the spinach wrap and salsa are to die for! A bit small for more than a few customers, but worth it.

Mostly vegetarian, but also with a local beef option...wraps, salads, soups and stews...and the best homemade cookies in the world. Tons of fresh juices and smoothies. Everything cooked or made to order.

Vortex may be hidden, but it is such a treat. Everything is so delicious and if you need gluten free food, or you are a Vegan- you will not be disappointed. Everything is delicious.

Food and drinks are prepared to order and so are super-fresh :-) This is a great place to go eat solo in a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere where not being part of a group doesn't make you feel self-conscious. Fun art on the walls inside and pleasant outside seating. Lots of menu items for folks needing gluten free fare.

My partner and I were excited to have access to green juice, since it's a normal part of our breakfast routine but not worth hauling the juicer along. Vortex offers myriad juices, green and orange and red, but the real treat was the bowls. We really liked the peanut bowl (vegetables tossed with peanut sauce over brown rice) and the... More
