“Stepping into the small establishment, you are hit with the freshest, most invigorating aromas of fruit and veggies… it just makes you feel alive. There’s just a vibe here that is undeniable. I had the protein bowl with the homemade granola and those caramelized pecans, which were to die for. Definitely planning to try some of their other offerings including some of the non-juice items.”

“Honor. This is the word that comes to mind every time I get to see founder & practitioner, Patrick. The way he works on one’s body & muscles leaves nothing but pure bliss. He listens, cares attentively, and works magic to restore physical and mental balance. I have had many massages from him, each only better than the last.”

They are so friendly and everything is reasonably priced! I just got a bacon, egg and cheese on a croissant with a pumpkin spice latte – absolutely amazing. The sandwich was cooked beautifully and the PSL was absolutely perfect.”

“I found them — the best cheesesteak in the Richmond surrounding area that is. I don’t know where to begin! I’ll start with the fact that it’s Black owned and they hail from Philly baby so you know it’s legit! COVID standards, check! Service, check!”

Hour Cycle Studio

The best RVA spin studio! This studio has amazing (insanely fit!) instructors with great energy and playlists! Breanna is my personal fav – she’s sweet but tough and will get you right! This is definitely my favorite Richmond cycle studio!”
