Local Spotlight - Zeke's

It has been a while since I've done a restaurant spotlight, but I think this new local spot deserves one!
After two months of wanting to try out this spot, I went to Zeke's twice today. They serve fresh Poke bowls, juices, smoothies, and coffee. I love that healthier local options like Zeke's and Fruitive have been popping up around town!

Lunch Stop:
Watermelon Juice
The Keali'i Special

Dinner Stop:
Iced Intelligentsia Costa Rican Blend
O.G. Poke

I appreciated the attention they gave to each cup of coffee. They serve both cold brew and hot/iced coffee made with the precise technique pictured above. Against their will, the guys had to travel all the way to NYC for the brewing workshops, tough right? It's a good thing they did because the coffee was great! The only thing that I would say could be better is the rice, I personally prefer the stickier sushi style rice with poke, but it definitely isn't a deal breaker. Overall we had great poke, good drinks, and friendly service! The guys were cool and in my opinion successfully created a friendly and laid back atmosphere to hang out in. They will definitely be seeing us again soon! If you're in the area make sure you pop in and say hello to our new friends at Zeke's Beans and Bowls!
