    Beet Box Cafe owner, Marlys Mitchell, is a big fan of singer Lionel Richie. His centerfold is displayed behind the counter and pillows adorned with the musician’s face are placed on bench seats.


    An Energizer Juice is made from apples, beets, ginger and lemon, accompanied by a delicious and complex-tasting raw energy bite.


    A portabella, red onion and herb feta quiche of the day ($11.25) came with a green salad topped with sprouts and julienned carrots and beets.

66-437 Kamehameha Highway, Haleiwa; 637-3000; Open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

This healthy, hip, vegetarian joint exudes a funky vibe with its colorful decor and entertaining menu item names, such as the What’s for Breakfast breakfast; the Beet Goes On salad; and the Three Little Birds, Burrito Babe and Portabella Stache’wich lunches.

Breakfast is served all day and includes a gluten-free quiche special, while lunch begins at 11 a.m. and includes a pizza of the day made with a gluten-free crust.

But that doesn’t even cover half of the menu.

“Smaller fare” items include hummus or baba ganoush with choice of whole-wheat pita bread or veggies ($8.50) or both ($11), avocado toast ($6), rice and beans ($4) and more. And then there are acai bowls ($8-$8.75), smoothies ($6-$7.75), freshly made juices ($6.50 for 9 ounces and $10.50 for 16 ounces), kombuchas on tap ($4-$8.25), coffee ($2.50-$4.25), tea ($2.50-$3.50) and a pastry case filled with delectable desserts, including raw chocolate. Yum!
