Like great food? Who doesnâ€™t! Are you a bit of a health nut? Ok, maybe Iâ€™m not, but I like great food. And I am a huge fan of Ticoâ€™s Eatery & Juice Bar on Witherspoon Street (although it faces Spring Street) in downtown Princeton.
Ticoâ€™s is one of the few juice bars that offer wheatgrass shots in the Princeton area. Wheatgrass is said to help detoxify the body and keep you healthy. What a great natural alternative to medicine. They also make fresh juices to order and have everything from orange and pineapple to carrots and beets. If you are more in the mood for a smoothie, they have the best! My favorite is the strawberry banana, plus all of their smoothies are made with non-fat frozen yogurt. Custom-make your own smoothie or choose from one of the already declared favorites such as the Jamaican Jammer.
Juice bars and smoothies arenâ€™t your thing? Try one of their quesadillas, paniniâ€™s or Joseâ€™s Chicken Salad. Their quesadillas are the best I have ever had, not to mention the chicken salad is amazing. Everything is made fresh daily and with the highest quality ingredients.
They are open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm and Saturday from 9am-3pm, serving breakfast, lunch and the occasional snack or juice. If you donâ€™t have time to sit and eat and watch the passers-by, you can order something quick to go or grab something in their â€œon-the-goâ€ section. Plus, you can always stop by the University Store for a meal on the run as they have their great food there too.Â Did we mention they do catering?
Ticoâ€™s is a mom and pop shop serving great food in a friendly atmosphere. Once you go there, they will know you by name. Itâ€™s no wonder Ticoâ€™s is one of the gems of Princeton.
Plus we love them because they are on Twitter @ticoseatery. Follow them!
