The concept at UrbanMix is to be able eat healthy and to combine ingredients from all over the world in one bowl. Depending on your own mood, you get to decide what goes into your bowl. Probably the only place in town where you could find kim chi fried rice with some curry couscous (that sounds weird, I know, but delicious nonetheless)
If you are looking for something more traditional, Happy Tummy has a myriad of ingredients for your choosing. Usually I am not much of a salad person, but just a few bites in had me filled in for the next couple of hours.
Having to be in the office at 9am every morning is a challenge we are all familiar with.

If you are looking for something unique from give Jewel Coffee a try.
