Hope you’re having a great summer (if it’s summer wherever you are in the world!). I recently went to Mallorca in Spain so today’s post is a short review of a health food cafe/takeaway shop I found.
I went to the one in Santa Catalina and the one in Calle Protectora (both in the capital, Palma). Check out their website here for more info.
At the Santa Catalina branch, below, we ordered 2 smoothies: a blueberry burst (the purple one) and a strawberry delight (the pink one). So so so delicious. Both smoothies were amazing and I chose to add a scoop of Sunwarrior protein to mine (the strawberry) because it didn’t have any already in the ingredients. Delcious! I would highly recommend!
I also got a kombucha to try as I’m trying to eat more fermented foods. The kombucha isn’t made by them, it’s from a Spanish brand I’d never heard of but it was really delicious – I don’t usually like ‘health drinks’ but this was seriously good! Here’s a link to the kombucha brand’s website www.kombucheria.com
The apple and cinnamon granola we got to eat at home with yoghurt, but you can get it with almond milk to eat there, which is nice. It was really tasty, crunchy from the buckwheat and sweet from the dried apples but not overly sweet like some ‘healthy’ granolas often are.
The above picture is at the Calle Protectira where we got a blueberry blast and the dish of the day – courgette noodles with veggies in a Thai curry sauce (made with coconut milk). It was average, I didn’t eat it all and I wouldn’t buy it again but I don’t usually enjoy raw food dishes (apart from salads) so I wasn’t surprised.
The atmosphere in both Zivas is comfy, warm and welcoming although I didn’t enjoy in the Calle Protectora branch that it is mixed with an estate agents and furniture store all in one shop (weird)! However, that branch does have the peaceful courtyard, lovely to sit in the sunshine (or shade!) and sip away at your smoothie!
Staff were helpful and informative, service was quick but I would say price is quite expensive for what it actually is, however that wouldn’t stop me buying there again!
WOULD I GO BACK? Yes.
