...I know I took forever to add Choices but they've become one of the best vegan spots in Miami
...Choices Cafe isn't your mama's vegan restaurant. This Miami eatery is determined to pound preconceived notions of vegetarians into the ground while plating delicious dishes.
...Choice Vegan Cafe menu includes organic juices, super smoothies, appetizers, wraps, burgers and sandwiches, pizzas and tacos, salads, soups and stews, sides, desserts and breakfast.
...It doesn’t matter if you’re a vegan or not, Choices is just a great restaurant. Its creativity combined with its light fare gives you a delicious, filling meal that will not weigh you down for the rest of your day
....Choices cafe brings healthy food options without losing flavor.
All ingredients used are organic, vegan, and ultimately healthy. But do not let that scare you away. My companion, a carnivore lover, was beyond satisfied. They also have a full juice and smoothie bar where you can choose from one of their many concoctions...When my wrap arrived, it was even more mouthwatering then I anticipated. The burst of flavors with a complementary special sauce satisfied my taste buds above and beyond.
...the “Mental Lentil” wrap online. I have to say, it was one of the most interesting wraps I’ve ever had...What an explosion of flavors!!! And talk about the protein punch this dish will give you with the lentils, black beans AND quinoa! I loved the subtle sweetness that the plantains gave the wrap.
...try the pixsa next time you are here, its kind of a vegan pizza, so delicious, and the desserts as well!
Voted 8th Best Vegetarian Restaurant in the Country -> Freshness is the order of the day at this downtown café. Organic juices and smoothies come in tempting blends such as Green Dinner (apple-kale-spinach-ginger-lemon), Sex A-Peel (apple-beet-cucumber-ginger), and CocoBliss (coconut-cacao-goji-almond butter-chia-agave). Pair yours with a salad, wrap, or sandwich also bursting with good-for-you grains, fruits, and vegetables—and come back over the weekend for the make-your-own-pancakes brunch.
looks too good to be healthful. The "mental lentil" collard wrap ($16) at Choices Café is crammed with black beans, lentils, onion, pico de gallo, bell pepper, avocado, plantain, and vegan cheese. Collard greens replace the wheat tortilla. The wrap is vibrant, its colorful filling stacked like sand art in a bottle.
4.7 / 5.0 Offers organic, vegan, and healthful foods. Besides being the production facility for all meals sold at the various Choices cafes, it is also the springboard for all special entrees. The dining is communal, highlighting a plate of the day in tune with the seasons. A retail section features cold-pressed beverages, house-made dressing, and eco-friendly home products. Free wi-fi.

    Jeanette Ruiz is a Miami local whose worked in the Marketing/PR fields for over fifteen years helping to build brands for high-end real estate properties, art festivals and lastly a successful, boutique financial planning firm. Five years ago, Jeanette’s quality of life declined due to a lifestyle of poor eating and stress. After years of suffering, she took her health into her own hands and discovered the healing potential of a whole food, plant-based diet. With this newfound lifestyle came an interest in learning more about where food comes from, what ingredients are in the products we use, how the environment is affected and how exactly animals fit into all of this. Jeanette has been an unofficial supporter of Choices Café for years and is happy she is officially joining the team to help propel the brand forward.

    Rose came late to a career in the food business. Six years ago when her son finished college and she was able to semi-retire, she began exploring the possibility of a second career that inspired her heart and spoke to her true mission in life. Looking to expand possibilities she came to Choices Cafe at their original Brickell location in 2013 and was hired as a dishwasher. Later, she became the daytime juicer/smoothie maker, was trained as a line cook and advanced to Supervisor/General Manager. Choices has grown since then and Rose now plays a major part as the Kitchen Manager at one of Choices’ three locations on NW 27th Ave called Choices Kitchen. She is committed to Choices’ mission of consciousness and humility in daily human choices.

    Eduardo PazosChoices UES - General Manager
    Reluctant and nervous to go from a standard, American, omnivorous diet, to committing to a completely ethically vegan lifestyle for the rest of his life, Eduardo decided to try a 30-day vegan challenge for the month of April in 2011, to see how he took to veganism. He reached May 1st and has never looked back.
    After more than 4 years as a vegan, Eduardo’s mother asked him when he was “going to stop will all this vegan silliness,” to which he replied “I’ve already stopped my vegan silliness. I’ve moved on to vegan seriousness.”
  • Beatriz Herrmann
    Beatriz HerrmannKitchen General Manager

    After a 25 year career at the University of Miami, Beatriz decided to make a bold move and took an early retirement.  After contemplating it for a while, Beatriz came to the conclusion that she wanted to spend the rest of her life working in alignment with her current philosophy: Veganism – eating compassionately. Although Beatriz very much enjoyed what she was doing at UM, working with doctors and nurses to deliver the best care to their cancer patients, she always wondered if there was a better way to help people. Beatriz yearned to educate people around the prevention of illnesses in the first place.  By educating the public to eat compassionately, not only are animals saved from being slaughtered, but also health is improved in both people and the planet. Beatriz is so proud to work at Choices, a team that is working hard to fulfill a revolutionary vision of the future- a new world that someday will look at animals with compassion and love and their suffering will be no more.
