In a drastic shift of dietary offerings, the former (and short-lived) site of Hot Diggities will soon be a juice bar. Health Love & Soul (HLS), which is currently a Maplewood favorite, is expected to open sometime in the next two weeks, bringing a health conscious menu including wraps, salads and — of course — fresh juices and shakes.
After nearly closing their doors for good a couple of years ago, HLS has met with such success in Maplewood that it is now able to open a second location. According to comments on the restaurant’s web site, HLS provides a friendly face behind the counter who greets a regular customer by name and knows her order by heart.
Head chef and manager of HLS, Juliean Broadie, told Baristanet that the restaurant was previously located in Montclair, but they moved a year and half ago. “We think Montclair is a great community,” Broadie said. “We’ve been looking to return and when the opportunity opened we took it. We’re looking forward to coming back.”
