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

Stopped in for smoothie at lunch but staff not Very knowledgeable about ingredients. Showed me recipe card that they follow when questioned. Rawlicious better if you want wholesome ingredients that are vegan and gluten free.

A quick lunch here on a warm June day was a great idea. We had the red curry special ("with a little kick to it"...I'll say!) and a super salad with ginger lime dressing, along with two turmeric teas. Great choices, quickly and attractively served. We sat outside in the little courtyard among the Bauer Buildings. Servers brought our orders... More

What a formula Johnny and his crew have! The smoothies they pump out are so good! And the soup and other lunch ideas are also exciting for your tastebuds! If you are in the Bauer area, I would pop in here for a quick pre-post work out drink or a nice cute lunch catch up with a friend!
