Crush Juicery opened for service recently inside the quick-service Elmwood Village restaurant Newbury Street Cafe—known for its health-conscious build-your-own salad, quinoa bowl, brown rice bowl, soup, and burrito menu. The addition of Crush Juicery expands the restaurant’s beverage repertoire to include cold-pressed and made-to-order juices, dairy-free and yogurt-based smoothies, and classic coffee drinks by way of a newly installed, full-service Public Espresso coffee bar.
Ingredients at Crush Juicery, which run the gamut from apples and bananas to bee pollen and coconut meat, abide by the non-GMO guideline that has been Newbury Street’s calling card since it opened. Flavor combinations, which number in the dozens, can be customized with a variety of “enhancers” like cacao, maca powder, turmeric, ginseng, and spirulina.
The addition of Crush Juicery also brings a few new food items to Newbury Street like pitaya (aka dragon fruit) and acai bowls served with your choice of homemade or gluten-free granola as well as avocado toast and oatmeal. New, extended store hours (7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.) complement the breakfast-friendly menu updates and position Newbury Street as and even more convenient pit stop for a caffeine- or micronutrient-fueled pick-me-up.
