The Juice House, Key Largo

Customers may come to The Juice House for the namesake selection of fresh fruit juices but they return for the food, says co-owner Maribel Reyes.

"We've got 16 different varieties of fresh juice," said Reyes, "but we've also got a great selection of good Cuban food."

Co-owners Amarilis Garcia and Reyes opened The Juice House in November at Key Largo's Central Plaza, mile marker 103.2.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner selections are available, along with takeout and specialty catering.

In addition to traditional morning juices like orange and grapefruit, The Juice House can serve up exotic specialties like guanabana, also known as soursop. "It's really good, you should try it," Reyes said with a smile.

Other fresh-squeezed juices on hand include mamey, watermelon, coconut, cantaloupe, passion fruit, guava and sugarcane.

Breakfast specials start at $2.50.

The steak-and-onion sandwich for $4.50 is a luncheon favorite, Reyes said. Turkey, fish and pork sandwiches are also on the menu, along with Cuban favorites like arroz con polo.

Paella is a popular catering selection for group lunches.
