vegan cafe and juice bar
Sun Life started as a means to address the community's need for nutrition education since the area has a high rate of high blood pressure and diabetes. Their menu is vegan and 90% organic.
They prepare vegetarian patties for $3 and use soy-meat products as well. In the summer, the couple prepares fresh fruit and veggie smoothies. In the winter, they make juice combinations like okra punch, sorrell drinks, pumpkin juice and carrot juice with Irish moss, a red algae that grows primarily on the Atlantic coast of North America and Europe. A small juice costs $5.
Note that they usually stay open until 11pm during the week or midnight on the weekend but you may want to call ahead if you plan on arriving late.
