Whether it's treating yourself to a spa day, enjoying an all-day Wimbledon coverage, or snorting Pixie Sticks with your old sorority sisters on a Friday night... the old saying "you can never get too much of a good thing" comes to mind. The same rings true when diving headfirst into a glorious bowl of luscious fruit, perhaps even topped with honey, sugar, and butterfly kisses.

Traditionally, fruit salads aren't the most exciting items on the menu. Usually relegated to hospitals trays, elementary school lunches, and second-rate sides, leave it to yelpers to discover where to pick some seriously fresh fruit bowls. Ivonne Marie C salivates at the "mere thought of the delicious fruit salad at Julio's, piled high with an array of fruits, raisins, coconut shavings, and walnuts, all glazed with the most delicious honey in the planet!" Expect a similar treat at Miami Juice, where the fruit is drizzled in honey and sprinkled with coconut and sunflower seeds. To Alice S's taste buds, they're more like "perfectly sliced, bite-sized morsels of heaven."

Melanie E discovered a menu of tropical juices at Mery's Ice Cream of all places, with lush flavors like maracuya, lulo, and curuba. Smoothie fanatic Eddy D switch hits between "the Passion Pleasure, the Strawberry Samba or the Mango Madness" at Sun Juice, and promises that it doesn't get much better than sitting on the bench outside, relishing "the juicy, thirst quenching goodness." When Gustavo L wants a mini-break, he goes for a freshly blended juice at El Palacio de Los Jugos. "Depending on which fruit you choose, there is no doubt it will bring back memories of any place in the Caribbean." Ahh, drink in that sunshine!

Speaking of sweetness, the Coconut Grove's Farmers Market has offered up a cornucopia of fresh fruits and veggies since 1980, but Cyn M insists the main attraction are the raw fruit pies, made with exotic red banana, papaya, and pineapple, and presented on a crust of dates, nuts and spices. For an endless choice of fruit milkshakes, Lara D heads south to 49-year old wonderfruitland, Robert is Here. She lets us in on a little known fact: "What most people don't know is that for the same price you can combine two flavors; you could have a chocolate coconut or a key lime pineapple (two of my favorite combinations)." Thanks for planting the seed, LD!

Picks of the Week
Reviews we liked this week.
Jordan N. on Wayside Fruit & Vegetable
"This is a very adorable open-air market that has been around for years. Adorable because it's small, quaint, and family-run. Prices seem to be reasonable for the nice goodies here as well, but I did not buy many things.

Atmosphere: Think of a mixture between Norman's Brothers and Robert Is Here fruit…"
Eddy A. on Norman Brothers Produce
"Norman Brothers is an old school farmers market hidden between sunset and the 878.

They have lots of hard to find produce (like kabocha squash and tahitian vanilla beans) and they also carry wagyu burgers...interesting to try out sometime.

but Norman brothers is pricey. but that's expected at these…"
Sarah P. on Gardner's Markets
"Gardner's Market is a nice place to go for your organics, etc... They do have a fabulous deli, and their made to order sandwiches are amazing. Salad bar is great, but very expensive. Everything there is a bit overpriced, though it is a small and less hectic way to pick up a few grocery items and…"

"When you just need to take break and breathe in some fresh air..."
Veggie Tales
"Some places where I have found some great vegetarian options :o)
* This list will not necessarily include Thai & Sushi restaurants (unless I love them) as it is almost always expected that these will serve most if not all their dishes with tofu as a meat option."
Most awesomest parks in town
"I love being outdoors and luckily enough for me there are plenty of cool parks in town. Here are some of my favorites"
