Papaya Hut

Papaya Hut (or Island - it can be referred to as either) has been a Yonge Street fixture since 1978 and is the go-to spot for those nearby in need of a healthy boost of organic fruits and/or veggies in liquid form. It's famous for its smoothies (owner Carl believes they're the best in the city), and the bestseller is the Health Nut: a delightfully tropical mix of papaya, coconut, strawberries, peaches, bananas and mangoes. Give their juices a try too, as well as their veggie-focused food that includes pita sandwiches, homemade soups and vegetarian chili.

Don't be deterred by the bright, tacky look of the place or Carl's incredibly upbeat enthusiasm; if you taste the goods and keep returning, you'll come to find it all sort of endearing.
