6 Third St., Dover, NH 03820
Vegetarian/juice bar. This juice bar turns out some great items with affordable prices. When I attended, I got the Coffee Smoothie, being the coffee-holic that I am. It contained coffee, banana, and the choice of either peanut or almond butter. I went with peanut and praised my decision during the short lifespan of my frozen piece of heaven. I decided I wasn’t done with my trip, and tested out their “Breakfast Bomb”, which is tofu cashews, agave nectar, G.F. oats, almonds, walnuts and dates topped with fresh fruit. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it to vegans and carnivores alike. This gorgeous little juice bar is located on the corner of 3rd St. and Central Ave.

Vegetarian/Indian. This restaurant sells some of the best Indian food you’ll ever eat. It’s authentic and unique as well as all vegetarian! They carry tons of vegan options as well. I got the Dal Makhani with chick peas, onions, tomatoes, and their spice blend. It was spicy and tasted like genuine Indian food. They have quite an interesting array of food options and flavor. The owner is passionate about her work and puts out some fantastic food and also does tailoring on the side.
