If you are ever around “The Fountains at Farah” and feel that you are running out of energy, the right place to go is Tropical Smoothie Café.
The food they serve at the cafe have natural carbs that your body needs, and tastes that your tongue craves. The menu fulfills everyone’s needs.
For those who want healthy options, they have wraps and bowls, or traditional sandwiches and flatbreads.
Of course, they also have a kids menu and specialty smoothies.

Well, let’s get to my order, first of all I am not a healthy person at all.
Because I was going to review this place, I made myself order something the way it appears on the menu with nothing special on it.
I ordered a chipotle chicken club flatbread because I am a sriracha and chipotle sauce fan so I had to have at least one of those.
It also had bacon, tomatoes and romaine and I do not lie.So if I say that this sandwich was awesome, it is because it was awesome.
I literally did not want to finish it because it was amazing.The chicken tasted warm, the sauce was not too spicy either.
The sandwich had such an amazing taste that I forgot that I do not like romaine lettuce. Of course, I upgraded my sandwich to a combo and got a smoothie too.
I ordered a Sunrise Sunset Smoothie which had strawberries, mango, pineapple and orange juice.
I love smoothies and this one was no exception.
It is a classic smoothie flavor but Tropical Smoothie Café does something that just makes it unique.
Everything sounds amazing so far but there is always a “but.”
The service is what makes a restaurant, café, etc, better or worse.
At the Fountains location the service is not the worst but there needs to be more employees.
There is an online order option but the wait is still too much sometimes.
The person in front of me waited 10 minutes for just one smoothie.
Because of this, if business is going well, there needs to be more investment.There are not a lot of tables for people to sit and some of the ones there were dirty.
Overall, the service could be better but the food was awesome.
