Five stars of flavor for Asana House.
After writing my last article about the Asana House, I just had to go there myself to experience the restaurant. Asana House Juice Bar Cafe is a “hip juice bar in Montclair that has some exciting new offerings you might be interested in.” Located at 127 Valley Road, Asana House is under new ownership and is expanding their menu.
Asana House is right down Valley Road, with parking available in the back behind the building. Step inside to an intimate area, complete with a dining room table and comfy chairs. While there is not much seating inside, there is additional seating in the front and back to sit outside and have breakfast on a beautiful fall day.
First, I ordered the Espreso Blast, one of the many “Super Smoothies” listed on the menu. This smoothie was packed full of soy milk, banana, cinnamon, honey, cacao, macca and nutmeg. Aside from giving me a much-needed energy boost on a lazy weekend afternoon, the flavors in this smoothie were a delicious combination. The flavors seemed to come in layers: first chocolate, then the banana, followed by the coffee taste of the espresso. The honey, nutmeg ad other spices gave an overall taste to the smoothie that kept the entire thing sweet and delectable.
Paired with my Espresso Blast was a breakfast burrito, another amazing pick-me-up for a late breakfast on the weekend. However, this burrito was stuffed to the brim with fresh ingredients that I could barely finish half without being satisfied and full, at which point I was quick to grab a box and take the rest home for later.
The breakfast burrito had all the classics such as scrambled eggs and tomatoes, as well as spices and spinach all wrapped up in a big, green tortilla.
Asana House is now open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and closed on Sundays. Asana House also offers breakfast, brunch and noodle dishes in the evening. Stop in for your taste of Asana House today!
