Juice bars are more than just a trend these days, and every neighborhood in Philly has one to fulfill juicers’ needs. These are some of our favorite spots in the city to grab some fresh liquid sunshine, enjoy healthy snacks, and recharge.

Head down to Bella Vista to check out the original location of this inventive juice shop. A variety of both classic and trendy flavors makes this the perfect stop on your walk through the city, or trip to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens nearby. Sample the tried-and-true, earthy flavors of the Heart Beet (with apple, carrot, beet, celery, and ginger), or branch out to a popular new detox—inky-colored pineapple charcoal lemonade. Smoothies are another sweet option; check out the chocolate peanut butter with cacao and almond milk. Another favorite, Blue Sky is a sweet and floral energy boost with blueberries, lavender, cashew, banana hemp seed protein, and almond milk.

This rustic-chic, vegan cafe and bakery in Rittenhouse is a comfy spot to enjoy a variety of eats and juices. The menu changes based on availability of fresh ingredients, but visitors can expect French bread pizza nights, weekend brunches, steamy ramen and dumplings, as well as decadent sweets like coconut macaroons. Grab-and-go cold-pressed juices are always a good choice, and P.S. & Co. offers a variety of blends. Check out Fitler Square—loaded with grapefruit, spinach, romaine, collard, fennel, and kale—for a greens-packed option, or enjoy the balanced zing of a beet, ginger, and lemon mix.

A new juicery in town, Stripp’d offers a relaxed and natural space with exposed brick and an equally au naturel menu. At the juice bar, enjoy cold-pressed selections with clever names and flavors. The Woodermelon is a popular favorite that pairs watermelon with mint and lime undertones. The Jala at ya Boy achieves uniquely spicy and citrusy flavor combo with grapefruit, apple, jalapeño, kale, lemon, and blood orange. For eats, the brioche egg sandwich offers a savory garlic thyme aioli, and the chipotle guac toast is topped with a saccharine orange blossom honey and sea salt flakes.

Juice isn’t the only thing made to order at this spot. Head to Animo if you’re looking for soups, salads, and burritos in addition to the drink selections. Build-your-own burrito, or try combinations like chicken with guac, or hummus and veggies. Juices are made with a top-notch extractor, and come in creative combos like Key Lime Pie (with avocado, banana, lime, granola, and apple) and Cin City (milk, spinach, banana, cinnamon, honey, and protein powder). We also recommend the banana custard, made with only whipped organic bananas, and if you’re up early definitely try a vegan breakfast burrito bowl with eggs, beans, beef or veggies, and salsa or the house hot sauce.

Pure Fare’s key to success is simplicity. Fresh combinations create juices that pack both fresh flavors and vibrant colors. Grapefruit, pineapple, and celery create a green mix. Pineapple, beet, and lime blend into a deep pink. Or there’s always carrot juice, the classic, bright orange choice. You can also enjoy treats like breakfast oatmeal, parfaits, or veggie frittatas for less than $5.
