Hawa Smoothies looks like the snack bar at your local pool, but is instead a juice bar with much better options than half-frozen mozzarella sticks. It’s a tiny, cash-only spot in East Village where the drinks have names like “Hot Passion” and “Pome Queen.” If you’re not into those, they’ll gladly make a new concoction based on whatever you diagnose yourself with. Plus, you can drink your juice with those huge neon-colored straws they put in the bubble tea, which makes being healthy objectively more fun.

Pop’s Eat Rite is a vegan fast food spot on St. Marks Place with a good smash patty burger.
The Smith is a chain restaurant that started in the East Village, and it’s sort of like a mid-tier sedan. Not too flashy, but it gets the job done.

Peacefood is one of our favorite vegan spots in town (and especially in Union Square). Go, but beware that the chickpea fries are addicting.
If you work around Times Square, use Green Symphony for your all healthy snack needs.
