In a small town full of pizza restaurants and Chinese takeout, we FINALLY have a healthy alternative! Courtside Nutrition recently opened up in Coventry, and the town is abuzz with its slam dunk shakes, teas, and coffees.
When you walk in, you are greeted immediately. The place is decent-sized and clean. While you're waiting, there is a lot to look at. There is a board next to the door with daily deals (today was "Teacher Day," so teachers were able to get a special discount. All you need is your ID), and special combinations. Menus are located at the register. There are a variety of shakes, teas, and coffees to choose from, along with some nutrition facts. The menu also points out items that contain gluten.
When it is your turn to order, the person helping you gives you their undivided attention. They will strike up a conversation with you, which makes the entire experience very welcoming. The woman behind the counter happened to be the owner, Kristina. I told her that I'm a content writer, and that I sometimes do restaurant and business reviews (which is true. I've done them on other blogs, and they performed well. A lot of my product, business, and restaurant reviews have performed well in the past). She told me that if I ever needed a place to write, that I could come there and they have WIFI. I told her I will take her up on that, after I get vaccinated.
I received my shake (I ordered a strawberry banana orange shake), and was told the nutritional facts. I was told that the shakes are great as a meal replacement, or a yummy snack.
The shake I ordered was absolutely amazing and filling! I ordered a small shake and I was full.
Overall, my experience with Courtside Nutrition was excellent. I will be coming back, and I highly recommend it to anyone who lives in the Coventry area. Courtside Nutrition is located across the street from the Grammar school, and right next to Wicked Slice in Vinton Village Plaza!

Coventry, CT is my hometown. I grew up here, couldn't wait to get out. Then I left, then I came back, then I left, and then I came back. Now I'm raising my own little family here, and I'm just starting to fall in love with Coventry. Join me as I get lost in the charm of this small country town!
