Ripe is the Perfect Place For Vegans – I became a Vegan a few months ago. Although I had eaten at Ripe before that, it has now become my go-to-for-almost-everything place. I love their Vegan Platter - it actually serves as two meals for me, there is so much...Veggies, Rice & Beans, Choice of Potato...I also love their toasted Pita Bread (whole wheat) and choice of Hummus, Guacomole,etc.
Their shakes, with Soy Milk for me, are phenomenal. Lunch Specials are fun too - If you are not a Vegan, there is an even wider variety.Now they are open from 8:30 am, which is even better.
I Like it Ripe! – I love Ripe!
I'm a Health Freak and there's nothing better than low fat, healthy meals!
I work on Austin Street and when I do need a quick lunch or snack I head to ripe. They have good food at decent prices, with a wide variety of dishes catered to gym people. From runners to weight lifters, ripe has a dish for you! I love love love their fruit juices and smoothies, although can get pricey if you frequently get them. They should have a buy 7 get the 8th free or something deal.. hint Hint.... ;)
They already have a deal just like the one you are recommending.
Buy 9 juices or smoothies get the 10th one free.
Buy 9 wraps get the 10th one free.
Next time you are in there ask for a punch card. They are usually sitting on the counter where you would order for take-out.
SuperbFood! – I'm vegan and a complete health nut so its hard for me to eat out, but at RIPE i can always look forward to a delicious meal and know i good. for me. They cook their vegetables just right and never overdone so you can taste the freshness of everything. I bring all my friends here and even brought my family on my birthday and everyone loved it. their food is never to oily greasy or salty, this weekend i am sick and i'm craving their split pea soup but i live to far for delivery so see u when i'm better RIPE!
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE and try their MILANO PANINI'S
Quality Health Food Dishes – We eat Ripe once a week for dinner. I always get their grilled salmon entree which comes with a serving of steamed vegetables (spinach, carrots...) It's really a delicious and healthy dinner. As well, try their "Austin Street Smoothie" which is a delicious blend of fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, banana, honey and soy milk. For breakfast we usually get the "Wake Up Call" wrap. Delicious.
Great Food - Excellent Service - Attention to Detail – From the moment I walked in Ripe Juice Bar, I knew I was in for a healthy treat. Great comfortable atmosphere with excellent customer service. Peter, who I assume was the manager/owner made sure our visit was comfortable and the staff made sure we received top notch service.
Now about the food, I had the steak wrap and I have to say that was one of the best if not the best wrap I have had. The portion was generous and the price even better.
The juice I had was made on the spot with real fruit, no sugar, no preservatives, just 100% real Juice...good luck finding that in NY.
I have to say that I strongly recommend this place for a quick lunch, dinner or even a date.
I want to thank the staff at Ripe Juice Bar for their excellent service, the great food and the comfortable environment.
You can count on me for being a repeat customer for years to come!
Yummy! – Ripe is delicious, and all the ingredients are fresh, and the menu is healthy and inventive. And the customer service is awesome. I picked up a wrap to go and realized it was a bit soggy by the time I got home because of the steamed spinach. The owner delivered me a new wrap in under 10 minutes! I have never expereinced such good service in long time. I eat hear at least once a week!
Far surpasses Jamba Juice! – This is my new favorite place! I have been wondering why we don't have a Jamba Juice in Forest Hills but then found RIPE and know now that a Jamba Juice doesn't even compare! The food is healthy, delicious, and affordable. The service is friendly and fast. The menu has a great variety. Everybody go there and go often! This place must last forever! :-)
Holy Avocado! Healthy Food That Tastes Good!!! – I'm nursing a back injury, and with my physical therapy, I'm gaining a newfound awareness and respect for my body. I tend to like fruits and veggies, but, admittedly, eating poorly costs less than eating healfhfully, as well as more convenient. Tonight, as went for a walk after a much needed nap, and the growling belly made itself known. I am used to the fast food available on Austin St, but I wanted to see if I could find a place that actually had tasty food with nutritional value.
I found it at Ripe.
I enjoyed a Greek-Mex chicken quesadilla, which was amazing. It came with a fresh and crispy side salad, which I hadn't realized, as I had also ordered the steamed veggies. I was in heaven. And this is coming from someone who lives off junk food. The chicken was perfectly grilled, all veggies crisp to perfection, the tortilla crisp and not greasy at all. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and, as I had ordered so much, brought half of it home with me.
I am thrilled that this little gem is in an area I frequent, but had never deigned to enter. The food is great, the chef was fantastic. I'll definitely be going back and spreading the word to my friends. Its not often that a junk food afficianado can rave about veggies, lol. Happy dining!
Thank you, your great feedback is appreciated. We look forward to your next visit. Feel free to introduce yourself.
Great Surprise in FoHi – This is a bright new star in Queens, and defintely happy that they're so close to home! I roll out of bed on weekends and go get a delicious protein smoothie. They are the only place I've ordered from that makes the shakes like I like them. The food is absolutely delicious on the very healthy menu. I was so pleasantly surprised a place like this came to Austin - very chic and hip with a lot of flavor - playing roots reggae on a Sunday morning - feels like home! - It's the kind of place I would normally frequent in Brooklyn. I'm very happy!! Hope they stick around for a long time. The food is soooo good and affordable!! The staff is friendly and the place is clean. My new fave!
Thank you. We are always happy to hear from our customers.
