Whether you need to find a quick bite to eat or are passionate about supporting local restaurants — The Mixx offers something for everyone.
From the moment the sun rises, about a dozen decisions come with it — what to eat for breakfast, whether to turn down a different street on the way to work because traffic is bad, when to press send on an email...you get the point. But even on the indecisive days, when a quick, healthy meal is all that’s left on the to do list, The Mixx offers an answer.
The Mixx, founded by Jo Marie Scaglia, opened in the Plaza neighborhood in 2005 with a menu fit for health-conscious, mindful eaters, those ready to try something new and anyone in between. Their menu contains a multitude of different salads, sandwiches and plated entrees. If feeling more adventurous, there is an opportunity to build your own salad, sandwich, plate or quinoa bowl. The Mixx accommodates dietary restrictions, and sometimes knowing that a menu has flexibility provides massive relief. There are gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian-friendly selections as well as “cheat sheets” for those adhering to programs like Whole30.
The Mixx is committed to cooking with quality ingredients and the proof is on each plate. The menu is grounded in their Food Theory: eat whole, real foods, source locally when possible and make everything from scratch. While each principle is seemingly simple, The Mixx supports each in actions like choosing to utilize fresh produce and unprocessed ingredients (meaning no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or something difficult to pronounce on a nutrition label).
An added bonus is their desire to support and give back to the local community. Products from companies like Broadway Coffee, Tea-Biotics, Farm to Market Bread Co. and more are available in house or in recipes themselves.
Guests don’t have to leave the mindfulness and local support behind upon leaving the restaurant. On the website alongside The Mixx’s Food Theory, there are suggestions on how to incorporate it into your lifestyle. The actions are straightforward (like shopping the outside aisles in the grocery store where the produce and proteins are located) but the impact is immense.
A meal at The Mixx is local food you can trust and a decision that ultimately makes itself.
