My daughter and I ordered a couple smoothies. She paid the young man and he walked away and began a conversation with a man totally ignoring us. I finally spoke up and asked him if we could have our money back to go elsewhere. He halfway apologized and made our drinks. Not very tasty drinks either

I went here because I noticed a wide selection of bottled Kombucha, including two of my go to brands. I then on the menu a Turmeric Ginger Tea (warm) offered at the juice bar, so I opted for that because I love ginger. It does not have as much ginger as I would like, but it has lemon, and a... More

Excellent flavour in all dishes due to the fresh spices and ingredients used. Favourite dishes are the veggie burger, avocado smoothie, green kale smoothie, buddha bowl and peanut lime salad bowl....so many good options!

I was at Thrive for lunch today - my third or fourth visit and probably my last. Our order was simple enough - 2 Southwest burgers and 2 drinks. The drinks came probably 25 minutes after we ordered them. Now, the woman making the drinks did explain she had just rec'd a huge order and were we ok waiting for... More

I tried it out for a juice and was shocked by the price. I could have a fine 2oz cocktail for that price. I would rather save my money for Vincenzo's or The Bauer Kitchen. Won't be going back there any time soon.

I can't say enough about this amazing gem in Waterloo! Fresh juice, smoothies, and the most delicious vegan food you can imagine. I am not vegan and still crave their food weekly. Owner is knowledgeable, friendly, and the open style kitchen is a win. An absolute must-try for anyone!

I come here a lot and love the food. The owner takes pride in his restaurant and it shows. The portions are generous. It's very busy at lunch so you want to come early if you want a seat. Although the staff does seem to turn over frequently, the quality of the food hasn't been affected in my opinion. I... More
