TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFE--FORT LAUDERDALE--RESTAURA
Sunday, April 27, 2014
(I could have stayed within my diet IF I had just had the flatbread--the smoothie had too much sugar for a diet but did supply fruits LOL)
Entering the Harbor Shops Shopping Plaza hang a left, turn right and about half way going south there is the Tropical Smoothie Cafe. It is a bright clean looking place and in spite of what you may read below the ladies behind the counter were very customer friendly. One was a trainee--that might have been Marie who's name is on the receipt-- who was being trained by a very smiling trainer.
We each had a coupon for a free flatbread and Allen ordered the Baja chicken and I had the chicken pesto. All flatbreads are $4.99. Smoothies come at 4 different prices from $4.72 to $5.66. I had the Blue Lagoon (blueberries, strawberries and bananas) while Allen had the Peaches 'n Silk (peaches, strawberries and bananas) and both were cold and sm-o-o-o-o-o-th! In addition I ordered the turkey/bacon sandwich ($6.99) which I really didn't need with the chicken flatbread.
The food, the service and the smoothies were fine and I really have nothing to complain about but I still prefer a full service place so chances are I wouldn't return
The area caters to the cruise ship customers and crew plus tourists from the beach and Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a pleasant place to take a break from shopping, running around and the heat.
Without the coupons the check would have been $26.39 but in all probability without them I wouldn't have had the flatbread so the check would have been $22.06 which is about average for lunch in this neighborhood.
