Juicebox is weeks away from its 12th Avenue grand opening. The little retail space, revolving around a juice bar concept, will offer fresh juices made on demand as well as light meals, and cold-pressed juices bottled to take on the go (including one- to five-day juice cleanse variety packs).
“We’re shooting to open the first or second week of November,” Brandin Myett told The Capitol Hill Times. Myett is one of the co-founders of Juicebox, and he, like his partner Keri Brunson, has a culinary background that will guarantee satisfied taste buds.
The organic and locally-sourced menu was described as “morning and daytime food,” and will feature a variety of soups and salads that will evolve over time. A lot of the flavors will come from northern Africa and the Mediterranean (think Indian dal), since those diets are centered on plants and grains. Myett said that these lighter options will be a welcome alternative to the mountain of burger-type restaurants on the Hill, especially as people age and see a need to improve the way that they fuel their bodies.
Lucky for Juicebox and the health conscious, the café will be snuggled between the Pike/Pine divide, where there are already a handful of yoga and fitness studios, making Juicebox the perfect after-workout hangout.
Juicebox will be located at 1517 12th Avenue. Visit juiceboxseattle.com for more information.
