There's a good-for-your-health ambiance without being annoyingly righteous. The manager and the employees are very busy but have time to be friendly and helpful. A couple of times when my purchases have been too awkward to carry in one trip, they have volunteered to bring it to the hotel. I have begun to leave them modest but appreciated propinas. Now when I order a combinacíon, they make certain there is too much in the blender for the plastic cup to hold and they suggest I drink some so they can give me the extra.

Here's a couple of the mind-boggling menu boards.
These represent, of course, only the 30 set combinations. I'm quite certain that you have yours custom made. Plus, there are straight juices such as orange, grapefruit, piña, mandarina, etc.
We have tried the following health giving combinaciones: una energético, una para artritis, y los vampiros, cuales son mi favoritas todavía. These come in medio litro and litro sizes, at $35 pesos and $50 pesos, respectively.

Of course, I checked out their hygienic practices. I was reassured to see that all fruits and vegetables are thoroughly washed then disinfected with MicroDyn. Money is handled with a plastic bag over the hand of the recipient.
One of the most impressive items they offer are fresh fruits cubed and anointed with yogurt, granola/amaranth/bran/raisins, etc in a towering, probably one liter plastic cup.This must be tried before we leave.
