Located on the northwest corner of Chandler Boulevard, 24 Carrots is a small vegan juice and raw food bar that is run by two women and a staff of three. This little restaurant has been providing great food, service, and atmosphere since it opened in 2007.

Unique in many ways, 24 Carrots cooks with locally grown produce and sweetens its foods with fresh agave instead of processed sugar. With a new menu every week, there is always a new assortment of juices and entrees to try.

I discovered this beautifully crafted and fresh atmosphered cafe back in 2010 when they hosted a spoken word event featuring a bunch of local poets. As soon as you walk in, the first thing that will catch your eye is the art. There are different pieces of art work plastered on every wall and many of them are even for sale. Next you see the chalkboard wall which is covered in inspirational and powerful quotes for the customer to enjoy while dining.

Personally, I’m the type of person who falls in love with hole in the wall places like this, especially if they are organic or vegan. I always receive amazing service and even better food when I stop by. The staff is very friendly and forms a bond with each customer, whether they’re a first timer or a regular.

The smoothies and freshly squeezed juice is a must have during any visit, and if you are working up an appetite, I highly recommend the Rose Spaghetti, which they make from scratch everyday.

If you want to receive amazing customer service and enjoy outstanding food that’s great for your health, 24 Carrots is the place to go.
