JP and Mariah Salvat, Southern Roots Filling Station.
Featuring goods from local farmers, growers, crafters and artisans, shop owners JP and Mariah Salvat say their mission is to create delicious simple vegan products
that are eco-friendly and organically sourced with no artificial preservatives
and unnecessary additives. Offerings include coffee, tea, prepared foods, and bulk/buy-by-weight items.
I stopped in for a Chai Latte and was gifted a lovely open-face sandwich. The Beacon features Smokey seed spread, carrot slaw and local micro-greens served on bread or a bed of greens. It was so delicious I had to pick up a container of the smokey seed spread to make my own at home! There are fresh house-baked muffins, and coffee from Miami-based Panther Coffee.
