Fresh Healthy Cafe (Gurnee, IL) - Review

by - 9:23 PM

Inside Gurnee Mills Shopping Mall there are plenty of food choices to choose from. Outside of the food court, though, there's a small cafe serving freshly juiced smoothies and fruit/veggie juices, wheatgrass shots, and healthy fare. After perusing the menu, I really wanted to try it!

Combos are can be served in half portions or full, with a medium juice or smoothie, and veggie chips. I ordered the Turkey Bacon & Avocado Panini with Tropical Peach Smoothie. Chhally ordered the Black Bean Quesadilla with 100% Freshly Juiced Peach Juice and a Chicken Gumbo soup. My peach smoothie was SO good!

There was more than enough seating for customers in the dining area. Extra napkin dispensers were helpful (I know I'm a sloppy eater when food is good). Our food was done in about 8 minutes. There was only one guy working the counter and cooking the food, and he was awesome. My panini was pretty much as fresh as it will ever get. The Turkey Bacon was crispy, juicy, and sliced perfectly. There were nice chunks of tomato and cheese, along with strips of grilled chicken. The avocado was the perfect final touch that added a cool bite of that unique avocado flavor. The bread was also pretty darn close to perfect!

Chhally really enjoyed his quesadilla. It was served with cool sour cream and tangy salsa. The tortilla was crispy and filling, not greasy at all!

Fresh Healthy Cafe - Definitely recommended! Note to the owners of this cafe: please expand to Milwaukee! I would so eat there every day.
