Phillips said as long as the restaurant still has breakfast, it will be available.
The menu offers soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch and several options for breakfast including: quiche, muffins, biscuits, frittatas and bagels. “Soups, salads and sandwiches are our specialty. We also have fresh, express juices, all-natural smoothies and the best brownies in town,” said Phillips.
Fountain of Juices smoothies offer a great alternative to drinks loaded with sugar. “Usually we don’t add sugar. We only add simple syrup to a couple,” said Phillips.
The new location at Mercer Village offers many lunch options, but the most popular have been the Turkey Delight with avocado spread and the Stansfield Special, which includes turkey, bacon and pimento cheese.
Fountain of Juice is keeping both locations open and Phillips is hopeful that the greater amount of traffic through Mercer Village will increase business as well.
When designing the new location, the owners wanted to give the restaurant a fresh, California vibe.
Recycled tins are being used as light fixtures and the tables were imported from Italy. There is also a recycling bin at the front of the store for glass bottles.
“We have been embraced by the community already. We are seeing familiar faces each week. That tells us we are doing something right,” said Phillips.
Car Phillips graduated from Mercer with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. Later, he attended graduate school at the Savannah College of Art and Design. His paintings are displayed throughout the restaurant as part of the décor.
