Restaurant of the Week: Alchemy Juice Bar, Hartford, CT


We shouldn't really categorize this one as a restaurant, persay, so maybe we'll rephrase it as "Café of the Week." Alchemy Juice Bar, "a healing mecca in Hartford, CT" offers a 99% organic menu with smoothies, squeezed juices, wraps, salads and soups. They're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but for us the breakfast sounds the most tempting. In addition, Alchemy offers daily classes and ongoing events, such as yoga, cooking classes and meditation. They also have a pretty neat added feature: an oxygen room, called "Vermillion Lounge," that offers organic flavors of oxygen like tea tree, eucalyptus and lemon. Alchemy is equipped with internet connection in case you want to start your morning in a relaxing atmosphere while sipping a Fair Trade Coffee Latte, or in our case, enjoying pancakes with organic berry maple syrup. Actually, while we're at it, we might purchase the "Tea & Tub" as well (a hot cup of organic tea, with a toasty footbath and pampering supplies). Seems like we could spend all day at Alchemy, really, and we still have access to TreeHugger *sigh*. ::Alchemy Juice Bar Café
