Gold Winner Pete's Fine Foods, Halifax
Silver Winner Humani-T Cafe, north end
Bronze Winner Wild Leek Food & Juice Bar
Follow the sound of the blender and you’ll find Pete’s smoothie and juice bar. For the ninth year running, Haligonians who prefer to drink their meals voted these—the Cherry Bomb, the Monkey See, the Pulp Fiction—the best in town. But there’s more than smoothies happening at this counter (and we’re not talking about the very nearby gelato and frozen yogurt, though, those rule too). Swing by Pete’s noisiest nook for fresh orange and grapefruit juices, wheat grass shots, power juices and protein powders, or the whole spectrum of fruit and veg blends, and question whether chewing is overrated.
