SouzaFit Eatery Opens in Hoboken on Washington Street

Keeping fit through the pandemic has not been easy. Between baking banana bread, watching endless amounts of Netflix, and attending virtual happy hours, it’s easy to get off track. One new eatery is helping with just that. Washington Street welcomed its newest quick service restaurant—SouzaFit, a healthy food eatery + meal prep restaurant. We stopped by to learn more about SouzaFit, a healthy eatery that just opened at 517 Washington Street.

A Family Affair

SouzaFit is owned and operated by a husband and wife duo — Christina and Phillipe — who started the business from their home in 2015. Phillipe is a former bodybuilder who began making easy and healthy meals for himself while training and working in the food industry. His gym buddies caught on to his diet and requested that he started to make their meals. The first week, he had seven clients and as word spread, the business grew to 10.

At this point, Phillipe knew that he was onto something. Over the next few months, the couple continued to meal prep for friends —Phillipe doing the cooking and Christina doing the packaging — while saving money for their first storefront.

The business idea started in a small kitchen with room for just a few chairs — and has now grown to three locations. Prior to heading to the Mile Square, SouzaFit opened in Mount Vernon and Newark. The meal prep and delivery service continued to thrive through the pandemic and when a space opened on Washington Street, the owners knew they had to make the move.

The Menu

SouzaFit’s philosophy is that healthy food does not have to be boring. The menu is chock full of flavors that honor Phillipe’s Brazilian heritage while also incorporating flavors that Americans know and love. The most important meal of the day is an all-day treat — you can choose from one of the many omelet or pancake and waffle choices for a full meal or keep things light with a smoothie or fruit bowl.

All omelets are made with at least three egg whites and toppings such as turkey bacon, cheddar cheese, spinach, broccoli, and mushrooms, which can be added for a protein-filled meal. For an Instagram-worthy breakfast, opt for one of the many toast options including peanut butter with sliced bananas and honey or the new Tex-Avocado toast that gives a real South of the Border feel.

Even though breakfast is served all day, the options are truly endless for lunch and dinner. Guests can flip through pages of the menu to see wraps, burgers {yes — we said burgers…at a healthy restaurant} and paninis. All sections of the menu include various types of protein. Chicken, turkey, shrimp, lean steak, and salmon are paired with lots of veggies and perfectly-portioned carbohydrates for a guilt-free meal, according to the owners.

“For vegetarians or vegans, we offer Beyond Meat and tofu,” the owners shared with Hoboken Girl.

There’s also a bison burger and a chopped bison meal can be found in the ‘Gourmet Plates’ section of the menu. The only items you will not find on the menu are pork or anything fried, keeping the options super clean and healthy.

Snacks and Dessert

On the dessert front and for those on the go, SF offers a packaged snack like a Complete Cookie or Plantain Chips — and for those looking for something even sweeter, pick up a piece of gluten-free chocolate cake or organic, toasted almond cake is on the menu. A full menu of cold-press juices, salads, lemonades, and protein shakes are also available for in-between meals.

The restaurant is open from 7:00AM {early birds, rejoice} until 7:00PM, and both indoor and outdoor seating is available at this time.
