The Inspiration

Founder Krystal Robinson was at work one day in 2018 and could feel her body desiring something fresh, green and healthy. She was on a 15-minute break, wanted a smoothie and began to think, where to get a fresh fruit/veggie-based smoothie from in Downtown Erie? The answer, unfortunately, was nowhere. At that moment, she decided to provide a solution that would make healthy, and good, accessible in a fast-casual setting.  

The Start

When we first opened our doors in November 2021, the future was uncertain. We simply took each day as it came. Fast forward two fulfilling years, and we couldn't be prouder of the brand we've cultivated – one that embodies consistency, kindness, health, wellness, and, of course, a menu filled with deliciousness.

The Now 

As of January 2nd, 2024, we had initially planned to transition out of the Foodhall and "temporarily" set up at the Erie Food Co-op (Downtown). While we were eager to carry on with our delicious and nutritious offerings the Co-op Market Space has since closed, so we’ve decided to take a brief hiatus to ensure everything is effectively planned for our new location.


The Future

With immense joy, excitement, and a touch of relief, we're thrilled to share Taste & See Fruit & Veggie Bar, is gearing up for a transformative transition.

We are excited to announce a new Taste&See location at 702 Raspberry St! A store front property associated with the OWB (Our West Bayfront) organization. We are hoping to open by Fall 2024, and we want to ensure this space is crafted with the utmost care to provide an exceptional experience.

During this interim period, we plan to stay actively engaged with the community, and we promise to keep you updated on the progress. We are committed to transparency and sharing each exciting step of this journey with you.


The Gratitude 

None of this would be possible without the unwavering support of our incredible Taste & See community – our cherished family, friends, and, of course, our amazing customers. A special shoutout to the Erie Downtown Development Corporation (EDDC) for being a crucial part of our journey, and to the Flagship City Food Hall for being our starting point.

Rest assured, Taste&See will be back to refresh and restore you nutritionally with our great-tasting, body-fueling, real fruit, and veggie smoothies. 

Thank you for being a part of the Taste&See family. Here's to a vibrant future filled with fresh flavor, community spirit, new connections, and the same genuine warmth that makes Taste & See special.

Thank you for being a part of our journey!
