Fresh First

Fresh First, Fort Lauderdale

Nestled in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s yachting district, Fresh First puts a modern healthy spin on yummy grub. The breakfast and lunch menu boasts 100% gluten-free food. Options such as veggie tofu scrambled with mushrooms, red peppers, spinach and onions with flax bread and the lentil burger are vegan favorites. Also, all menu items are affordable and freshly made.


The owner of SpaJuiceBar knows firsthand about the nurturing and healing benefits of juicing, so she created the beverage bar to share her organic raw juice nutrition recipes with others. Stop by and shop for juices that range from immune boosters to inflammation reducers, liver cleansers and hangover cures concocted from a variety of vegetables and herbs. The bar offers weekly specials and juice tips of the day along with insight into juicing. Also on the menu are platters such as zucchini Alfredo, marinated kale, and smoothie bowls, along with a list of guilt-free desserts. Visit their locale on Las Olas Boulevard or order delivery.
