Organic S.E.E.D….

The Madison Improvement Club is a fantastic health conscious cafe that is disguised as a workout club.   Actually the club itself offers both yoga flow classes or “Phenomenal Flow” as they are called and killer spin classes called “Party on a Bike” that will get your heart pumping, while their cafe S.E.E.D. offers a mouth-watering menu.   We have been supplying their cafe S.E.E.D. for quite some time and I had been hearing rave reviews about that they are doing.  The cafe may be tiny, but they are big on organic and have a huge menu of options that is worth the workout.  Deciding that I needed to work for my lunch, I tried the “Party on a Bike” class this past weekend.  I love yoga, but thought it would be fun to try something different and this was class was amazing.  New to spinning, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the class was high intensity and a lot of fun.  And they were serious about the party, it was a crazy, rowdy good time complete with laser lights, energetic music and an instructor who kept you moving.  It was also a workout that I am still feeling.

After working up a sweat, their cafe is the perfect place to cool down and refuel.  S.E.E.D. offers a case filled with pre-made salads to go that were freshly made with options like “The Calvin” filled with organic baby arugula, white beans, seedless grapes, walnuts and parmesan, which was wonderful.  They are happy to mix up the salad for you and serve it in a bowl, if you want to stay there to enjoy your lunch.  There is also a long selection of freshly pressed juices and smoothies to choose from.  The Will Power smoothie was a nice treat after working up a sweat that didn’t make me feel like I had just undone all of that hard work.  But the menu is more than salads and smoothies, there are a number of options including sandwiches, flatbreads, breakfast burritos and veggies dishes with many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.  They serve breakfast thru dinner, with a beer, wine and cocktail menu available as well.

While the class was a lot of fun, it is not mandatory to enjoy the cafe.  S.E.E.D. offers plenty of to go options, as well as on-line ordering and even delivery.  They are also available for catering.  A friend who is a regular told me that she often stops in to pick up her lunch for the day before heading into work.  I would too.

So, if you haven’t been, I would definitely encourage you to go.  Both the workout and the food were wonderful, and with the first class offered for free you have nothing to lose!
