One of downtown’s best spots for healthy eats has now opened a 4th Street outpost. Karma Juice Bar and Eatery is open from 9 am – 5 pm every day at 1804 4th Street North in St. Pete.
The airy 4th Street space offers bar and dining room seating indoors, in addition to a patio with umbrellas in the back, though we also recommend getting your meal to go and enjoying it picnic-style in beautiful Crescent Lake Park just a block away. The family-owned restaurant and juice bar aims to provide “mindful, health-conscious eating” that they call good mood food.
The all-day menu at Karma includes bowls, smoothies, salads, and sandwiches. They also have a full drink list of fresh-pressed juices, coffee, tea, and “wellness lattes.” From 8-11 am daily, diners can also enjoy a breakfast menu of health-conscious sandwiches, bagels and wraps.
The eatery also creates a variety of small bites like hummus plates and loaded toast (the ricotta and apple toast drizzled with honey is a favorite of I Love The Burg), and there is a menu of kids sandwiches, as well.
Karma delivers fresh, feel good food made by locals
Karma’s bowls are blended with almond milk and topped with house-made, gluten-free granola and honey. With bases like acai and dragon fruit, bowls are filled with a variety fruits, nuts and other organic ingredients. The extensive smoothie list includes half a dozen almond milk-based options, and another half dozen green smoothies made with fruits, veggies and coconut water.
Of course, among the many things Karma does well, their salads are stars in their own right, bringing flavorful and feel-good crunch to any lunch. Highlights include the roasted veggie and quinoa, the tequila lime chicken, and the gigantic KSS Salad featuring mixed greens, brussel sprouts, butternut squash, roasted peppers, quinoa, beets, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, feta, avocado, cranberries, hemp hearts, walnuts, and a house vinaigrette.
Opened by the mother-daughter duo of Josie Barber and April Lupkey, Karma originally began as a juice bar and acai shop before expanding into a full blown restaurant. The pair has demonstrated a dedication to fresh ingredients and meals prepared to-order, while sourcing responsibly and providing a warm and inviting space inside the restaurant.
Karma’s original location can be found at 1113 Central Avenue in St. Pete, and the restaurant has a third location in Clearwater at 2095 Drew Street.
