Nestled in an unassuming building on East State Street lies the delicious Health is Wealth Restaurant and Juice Bar. The restaurant opened to acclaim last year and has quickly became a go-to spot for Trenton locals, state workers and visitors alike. The lunchtime crowd overflows nearly out the front door. Eager customers await in line before they reach the counter. The menu features an array of healthy vegetarian and vegan options, ranging from probiotic smoothies to veggie wraps.
As visitors walk into the restaurant, they are greeted by the sublime reggae sounds of Bob Marley and Marcia Griffiths. As customers peruse the menu, they discover an abundance of options to choose from. The owners create their own original health shakes and purees that are designed for specific medicinal purposes. Each option contains antidote-like properties to fend off ailments such as arthritis, high blood pressure and indigestion. They are as filling as they are nutritious, comprised of nourishing ingredients such as carrots, cauliflower and spinach. In addition to their healthy options, they offer standard options with a health twist — like their sweet potato fries.
The ambiance of the restaurant is a cozy and intimate one. Surely, this is a good spot for a solo lunch in the middle of a hectic day. A bar counter with high chairs completes the scene giving the restaurant a down-to-earth and inviting vibe. This restaurant offers a rare and unique combination of food diversity, a chill atmosphere and tasty healthy meals. Health is Wealth Restaurant and Juice Bar will experience much success through its accessible and prime location, its zesty food options and its Caribbean flair.
