Located in the heart of the Mountainview Fraserhood neighborhood is this community focussed juicery serving up healthy juicy concoctions ranging from cold-pressed juices, to smoothies, along with bowls of good for you salads and other fine snacks.
I have visited a couple of times trying their juices, smoothies and such with my favourite being the #4 Bright Greens Juice that is made with Romaine, Cucumber, Celery, Parsley, Lime, Lemon and Ginger; along with The Strawburst Smoothie ($9) made with Strawberry, Banana, Coconut Oil, Cinnamon and Apple Juice. I have also tried a few of their snacks including the Zucchini Chips, Kale Chips, Spiced Nuts & Seeds, all are $5.
One thing that I love here is all the grab ‘n go salads and wraps they offer, freshly made they are perfect for a light lunch in the café, at the office or at home which is where I enjoyed them. I tried several over a few days including the Collard Wraps ($8) which I loved made with Red Pepper, Bean Sprouts, Carrot, Red Cabbage, Green Cabbage, Green Onion, Collard Greens, Citrus Miso Dressing and Date Chutney; equally delicious was the Quinoa Salad ($6) made with Quinoa, Cucumber, Red Apples, Parsley, Cilantro, Dill, Lemon, Rawmesean – Cashew Sour Kream. The Sesame Donburi ($10) has Cauliflower Raw Ryce, Bean Sprouts, Red Cabbage, Carrots, Green Onions, Kale, Sesame Seeds – Tamari Maple (Tare) Dressing; where the Pad Thai ($10) has Zucchini Noodles, Carrots, Red Peppers, Green Onions, Green Cabbage, Purple Cabbage, Bean Sprouts – Sunflower Pad Thai Dressing; lastly the Kale Caesar ($10) is made with Kale, Romaine, Coconut Bacon, Rawmesean – Cashew Caesar Dressing.
The juice menu is numbered and colour-coded which is valuable for remembering your favourite, it is almost like a paint store knowing your numbers for the colours and in this case the juices. This is a great spot for healthy eats and drinks in the neighborhood.
