Bay Area Bites Guide to 6 Favorite Juice Bars In Berkeley and Oakland

Their enduring success suggests that they haven’t felt the need to keep up with recent trends. The small collection of smoothies and juices mainly focus on the old guard of fresh squeezed juices: carrot, orange, beet, with nary a quirkily named spinach juice in sight. The Veggie Patch (carrot, beet, celery, ginger and orange) was a beautiful burgundy color and tasty, if assertively beet forward. A JBC Kale smoothie with banana, kale, apple and carrot and orange juices was easy to drink, and the taste of kale was well-hidden behind an army of fruits. In keeping with the neighborhood--and to be fair, the cost associated with ensuring everything is organic--prices are exorbitant. The Veggie Patch was $8.50 for 16 oz. A banana smoothie--simply a banana blended with milk and nutmeg is $5.75. But with a place like this, you’re not coming for the deals. You’re coming for the purity of their ingredients, its history, or even just to admire the impressive output of their minuscule kitchen: a steady stream of grain salads, vegan pies, and vegetarian banh mis.

A Collagen Blues juice and Almond Strawberry Joy smoothie from Marana Cafe in Oakland

Just a few blocks away from the bustle of downtown Oakland, Marana Cafe is tucked away on 19th between the Fox Theater and Henry Kaiser Park. It’s a pleasant, unpretentious space--there’s a hand-drawn illustration of Steph Curry by the napkins--with an extensive food and beer menu (and a lengthy mimosa menu). Like many juice bars, the names serve as both health claims and wrestling names: Iron Fist, Hypertension Destroyer, Day Charger. There are a few unique pairings like the Collagen Blues (daikon, spinach, blueberry and cucumber), which was aggressively vegetal and cucumber heavy. The smoothies seem to be primarily designed for taste, not health: they’re very fruit focused, and only a few have veggies. There’s even a Nutella smoothie! If you’re willing to cheat on your detox, they’re pleasant: an Almond Strawberry Joy, with just almond milk, almond butter, banana and strawberry, was balanced, sweet and entirely satisfying.

A Greenie In A Bottle juice and turmeric smoothie from Uptown Juice Company in Oakland

Of all the juice bars I tried, Uptown Juice Company is the most explicitly health conscious--and the most hip. The decor is tasteful, the shelves packed with interesting items (barrel-aged sriracha, Oakland onesies), and the juice names are more often than not pop culture references (Gin-ger and Juice, Bonita Apple-BOMB) Since the company sells several premade cleanses (as the hand-lettered sign on their window reminds you, it’s clease month!), the cold-pressed juices, made from mostly organic and local produce, come pre-bottled (which you can return for the $2 deposit). A “Greenie in A Bottle,” with romaine, kale, chard, celery, cucumber and parsley, was so mild, it was almost tasteless. I craved anything--lemon, ginger, even kale’s bitterness--to cut the blandness of the romaine. They offer a handful of smoothie options, spiked with add-ins like flax and bee pollen. A turmeric smoothie, with turmeric, ginger and chia, was pleasantly spicy and sweet. Their cheerful staff and paleo-friendly food (from Berkeley’s Mission Heirloom) makes it an enjoyable place to spend an afternoon. They also have a happy hour on Fridays, making it an ideal spot to live out your #dryanuary goals as you avoid the cocktails at Dogwood two doors down.

A Berkeley Greens juice and Energizer smoothie from Berkeley's Juice Appeal

Downtown Berkeley’s Juice Appeal is a small, cash-only shop where workers dance around each other to get to the juicer, Vitamix or patch of wheatgrass. Given the tininess of their space, it’s remarkable how many items they manage to carry (Gluten-free cookies, pepperoncini Kettle chips) and how extensive their menu is (Acai bowls, Numi teas, algae shots). But the bulk of their menu is smoothies and juices, a sprawling collection that includes four types of smoothies, probiotic juices, a selection of lemonades and traditional green juice blends. The juices, which are made with all organic produce, are fairly straightforward combinations of celery, spinach and apples. Most juices include ginger, which gave the Berkeley Greens juice (kale, spinach, lemon, ginger and celery) a welcome shot of flavor and spice. Say yes to the offered sprinkle of cayenne: like most vegan food, juices are greatly enhanced by as much spice as possible.

Their smoothie list is less pious, focusing on sweet, kid-friendly and Jamba Juice-esque fruit blends. Many of them include frozen yogurt. But one of the most popular is the Energizer, a tasty banana strawberry smoothie with wheat germ and bee pollen. Strawberry-banana is classic for a reason, and this drink showed why. It was balanced, and thankfully not too sweet. And if you feel like being extra virtuous you can add kale or spinach for a dollar more.

A Tropical Green smoothie and Green Power Juice from Oakland's Fresh and Best 2

Fresh and Best 2 (the first is located in the Berkeley Hills) is the studious urbanite’s dream: a clean, quiet, space with plenty of seating and a varied menu. In other words, an ideal study spot. While the menu includes everything from cafe staples like club sandwiches and grilled chicken wraps to more interesting options like tofu skin bahn mis or shrimp rolls, a good chunk of their menu is focused on juices and smoothies, all of which can be made with with almond or soy milk, or be supplemented with extra greens. The mango-y Tropical Green smoothie was pleasantly fruity and had no spinach or parsley flavor. A Green Power Juice, with spinach, kale, ginger and apple was surprisingly sweet, with a very strong apple flavor and a nice amount of ginger spice. The drinks could have been blended more thoroughly but the relative affordability (20 oz for less than $6!) more than makes up for their lack of Instagram potential.

    BLACKPINK / Lizzo - How You Like That / Juice (Medley Cover by Floradora the Explora)
    A man in a pink hoodie sits on outdoor seating in front of the Juice Bar Collective in Berkeley.

    Update, Feb. 27, 1:47 p.m.: Earlier this week, The Juice Bar Collective filed a dissolution of the worker-owned collective with the California Secretary of State. The collective’s dissolution was first reported by the Daily Cal on Feb. 26. Nosh spoke with Malcolm Leader-Picone, the collective’s attorney, who said the Gourmet Ghetto business is closing on Feb. 28 and is not relocating to Center Street as Nosh reported. Leader-Picone would not give details about why the collective dissolved, but said the business was “no longer viable” and that the three remaining members were concentrating on their last days on Vine Street. He also said they were working on a new project, but when asked if it was the Center Street restaurant, Leader-Picone would not comment, except to say what they’re doing will not be the Juice Bar Collective nor will it be a collective-run business. The note posted at the café announcing “new digs on Center Street” has been removed.

    Update, Feb. 22, 11:34 a.m.: The Juice Bar Collective will relocate to 2132 Center St., in the former Sliver Pizzeria space. According to the collective, they are moving because the current space on Vine Street requires $200,000 in repairs that the landlord is unwilling to make. In the larger space, the new iteration will be a different concept than the current juice-smoothie-lunch spot, with longer hours and even cocktails made with fresh juices. Customers should expect some of the Juice Bar’s current favorites on its menu, like its black bean polenta casserole and other vegetarian and vegan dishes, but the new spot will likely not reopen under the Juice Bar Collective name. The collective is still considering names for the new spot, when it opens in April.

    Original story, Feb. 21: The Juice Bar Collective, one of Berkeley’s first worker-owned food businesses, is closing its doors at 2114 Vine St., the shop’s location for the last 42 years. Its last day of service at the space will be Feb. 28.

    According to a note posted Thursday at the café, the collective will be opening up in new digs on Center Street in April.

    “We are so thankful for the community that has supported us in Berkeley for the last 42 years and we cannot wait to continue seeing and serving you at our new location on Center Street in Berkeley this April! Come join us Monday April 1 to celebrate new beginnings,” reads the note.

    Nosh spoke to the Juice Bar Collective last week to check in on some changes at the business noticed by readers, not least that it was no longer serving its famous roast turkey sandwich. One reader wrote, “The JuiceBar in the Gourmet Ghetto no longer serves turkey and has gone over to a totally vegetarian menu. It has also changed its hours from 10 to 4 to just 10 to 2.” Another expressed her concern about the changes: “I have been going to the Juice Bar since before my kids were born — my son is now 24!  Like the Cheese Board Collective, the Juice Bar is a Berkeley institution. I just went there this weekend for some of their famous noodle salad and the place looked abandoned.  I was so shocked, I asked the people working there what was going on…”

    Nosh was then notified today on Twitter that the owner-employees of this Berkeley institution were holding back much bigger news.

    The Juice Bar opened on Vine Street in 1976 and helped form the neighborhood we now know as the Gourmet Ghetto, along with other iconic food businesses like the first Peet’s coffee shop on the corner of Walnut and Vine streets, opened by Alfred Peet in 1966; The Cheese Board Collective, which started in 1967; and Chez Panisse, opened by Alice Waters in 1971.

    When it first opened, the Juice Bar Collective sold two just things: juice and soup, but eventually, it expanded its menu of healthy, often vegetable-focused fare, to include salads, a variety of casseroles and sandwiches.

    In the last few months, the collective, which now has a staff of three, has narrowed its menu and hours.
