Established in 2017, Lilika Juice Bar has evolved from a quaint kiosk on an open-air promenade at Yacht Haven Grande to a nearby “brick and mortar” air-conditioned enterprise — with surprising visuals and tasty culinary delights.
Owned and operated by the effervescent Lee “Lilika” Falach, her efforts to create a welcoming one-of-a-kind spot for locals and travelers to enjoy has succeeded mightily.
Step inside to the air-conditioned lounge where you can make your mark on the “Wall of Fame” — or sit outside in the sun at an umbrella-topped table.
Menu favorites include French crepes, freshly baked bagels with luscious sides, smoothies and smoothie bowls, and freshly pressed juices. Cocktails are available, too. And don’t miss Falafel Fridays.
What is Falafel? It’s a traditional Middle Eastern deep-fried food made from ground chickpeas and tasty fresh herbs. Falafel is high in fiber and protein — loaded with vitamins and minerals, totally vegan, and delicious.
The world map on display at Lilika seems particularly appropriate since patrons hail from around the island and all across the globe. In addition to a core of loyal local patrons, everyone from day charter passengers, luxury yacht owners and guests, to “yachties” and crew-members find Lilika Juice Bar is a great place to dine and unwind.
Said Lee, “I am from Israel, where many businesses are run as if customers are coming into the living room of your home.” With a warm smile, she added, “I wanted to create a comfortable Middle Eastern-style gathering place.”
Happily, Lilika Juice Bar is all that — and more.
Ever evolving to delight customers, look for additional expansion activities coming soon.
Current hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
