THE SMALLEST: Supreme Star Cafe in Johnston feeds you, and then helps you work off the calories

Posted

Danny Ortiz opened the Supreme Café shortly before the pandemic shuttered businesses worldwide.

The café, next to an appointment-only gym that features personal training, caters to healthy diets.

“We specialize in healthy style foods, protein shakes and healthy meal preps,” said Supreme Café Manager Cynthia Sweeney. “You can get 10 meal preps in a weekly meal plan at a reasonably priced $79.”

The café and fitness center were built inside a well-known Chinese food landmark, the former China Jade restaurant, in Town Hall Plaza.

“This place was empty for 10 years,” Ortiz said, standing in the café. “It was an empty eggshell in here. We built all this.”
