Concierge.com's insider take:
Detox from rum-fueled indiscretions and deep-fried island fare at Lalita, a vegetarian café whose ever-changing menu includes creamy carrot and dill soup (made with soy milk) and vitamin-packed fruit juice blends. Add the yoga studio and holistic medicine/general practice in the Kalima Center next door, and you've got a one-stop health shop. Co-owner and artist Jonathan Lowis serves as chef and decorator—the vibrant island paintings on the courtyard's coral walls are his—while wife and co-owner Dr. Cheryl Wade tends to patients next door. Chat with them over a refreshing hibiscus iced tea as you kick back on the couch or at one of the casual round wooden tables.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 8:30 am to 6:30 pm.
