Many, if not most people, set out to get their health on track at the beginning of the new year – and with good reason. If you’re one of them, Cape Town has you covered with a sweet selection of juice bars like these.
1 ESO Juice Company
Producing 100% cold-pressed juices, including veggie, citrus and green juices, ESO also serves fruit and superfood smoothies. Clients are crazy about the Juice of Eli, which is a fusion of beetroot, celery, ginger, carrot, lemon and apple. Another firm favourite is the Green Pine, which injects a dose of tropical flavour into the conventional green juice.

In the mood to grab a bite to eat along with your drink? Relax in their outdoor seating area to try their vegan and vegetarian rotis, pastries and cookies, or the gluten-free rusks – yum!
Any self-confessed health-nut would be totally obsessed with One-Juice products as they’re made with absolutely no added sugar, chemicals, animal products, preservatives, gluten, or diary. Phew! They also offer detox packages containing juices that last for three, five or seven days. You can even opt for boxes of 16 or 24 units – enough to revitalise your entire family!
5 Dr Juice
What makes Dr Juice so fabulous is that their stalls are based at a variety of locations around the Cape so you can get your fix of juicy goodness no matter where you are. Their namesake drink is their most popular and consists of beetroot, carrot, ginger, lemon, apple and celery. They also squeeze a mean veggie juice with kale and spinach.
6 Orchard on Long
All juices from Orchard on Long are hydraulically pressed with Norwalk juicers. These are the most prestigious juicers on the globe because of their unbeaten capacity to retain up to five times the amount of vitamins and minerals compared to the usual centrifugal extraction. They also sell the largest assortment of fresh juices, cold-pressed juices and superfood smoothies in Africa!
