Fruitive is a healthy juice/sandwich shop located in Virginia Beach, just a few blocks from the oceanfront. It is the perfect choice for those looking to refuel after a long workout at the beach.
Fruitive has a nice selection of healthy, fresh options. Many of the sandwiches contain organic produce and all included a whole wheat wrap. I appreciate restaurants that use whole grain as it is a much healthier option.
I ordered the southwest romaine wrap, which was a delicious whole grain sandwich including romaine lettuce, a selection of vegetables, wild rice, avocado, hummus, and a ranch dressing.
My boyfriend ordered one of the liquid meals; he chose the F.I.T drink, a combination of almond milk, blueberries, peanut butter, and bananas.
Prices are a bit higher, but what you would expect for healthier, higher quality ingredients. The sandwiches can be ordered in whole or half sizes; prices range from $7-11. Liquid drinks range in price from $7-14.
There really isn’t much service involved. Food is ordered at the front counter. The employees seemed to enjoy their job. Everyone was laidback and friendly.
Fruitive is a very small restaurant with not many places to sit, however, the inside does have a cozy, library type feel. The only downside to healthy restaurants is that they are usually situated in very small, cramped spaces without much of an atmosphere. These is more of a quick go and grab a snack/drink type of place.
I would definitely visit Fruitive again next time I vacation to Virginia Beach. I like the fact that they use local organic produce. There are plenty of healthy options for everyone. I would rather get a healthy lunch or snack at Fruitive then waste my money at an unhealthy, overpriced chain.
