My friend, Vanessa, invited me to my first ever yoga class at Open Space Yoga in Haleiwa this morning. It was a small, all levels class of 5 people, and it moved slowly with clear instruction. This was perfect for my first experience, and I walked out feeling calm and relaxed.
I also walked out feeling super hungry, since I didn’t want to eat breakfast before yoga. Vanessa lives near Haleiwa and recommended that we have breakfast at Beet Box Cafe.
It was a cute, clean, and comfortable space with seating inside and outside. There was an unexpected sprinkling of Lionel Richie throughout the cafe, but who doesn’t love a little Lionel Richie?
The menu was vegetarian with many gluten free items.
I ordered the Alligators smoothie, which is made with bananas, kale, almond butter, spirulina, honey, and almond milk. I’m a sucker for a smoothie with almond butter and this was no exception. It was thick and delicious!
I also ordered the Beet Box Burrito, a whole-wheat tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, brown rice, black beans, avocado, mango salsa, and kale. Yum!
Did I mention that I was REALLY hungry? AND the baked goods were calling my name from that shiny case by the register, so I ordered the mint chocolate walnut cookie, too. Very yummy with just a hint of mint.
Vanessa had the Zen plate for breakfast, a curry seasoned scramble with broccoli, zucchini, onion, and carrots. It was served with brown rice, black beans, avocado, and sunflower sprouts.
If you find yourself in Haleiwa, I would definitely recommend stopping by the Beet Box Cafe for breakfast or lunch. They have a really wide assortment of delicious vegetarian items. Maybe take a yoga class beforehand and make morning of it!
