Cate says, ❝I love to stop in for lunch at Native Sun. I grab a smoothie or juice from the organic juice bar- my favorites are the Coconut Smoothie (pictured), The Grasshopper (by request because it’s not on the menu anymore) with almond milk, or the Green Too with lemon and ginger. Then I pick up a vegan sandwich, Shakti Raw Burrito (pictured), soup or salad from the deli for a satisfying and healthy meal.❞
