Liquid Planet initially looks like simply a smoothie joint, and it is that, but it also offers a varied menu with several rice bowl, salad, and pita options. The pitas come in a range of combinations, divided into sub-categories of grilled cheese, vegetarian, ham & cheese, turkey, chicken, roast beef, egg, or specialty pitas like a tuna melt or peanut butter and jelly. Featured rice bowls include a vegetarian black bean or a chicken teriyaki bowl. There are also several smoothies, such as Peaches and Cream or an Elvis Chill with peanut butter, banana, honey, and frozen yogurt. Liquid Planet also has a breakfast menu and daily soup specials. - Marjorie Jensen
