Hula Juice Bar and Gallery
This Grassmarket juice bar and café offers a range of freshly made juices, smoothies, and light meals.
Tucked at the base of Victoria Street on the hectic Grassmarket, Hula Juice Bar and Gallery is a welcome respite from the crowds, hills, and Harry Potter shops. While it offers an array of freshly pressed juices and made-to-order smoothies to take away, those with more time on their hands should settle at a table and delve into Hula’s fresh take on traditional café fare. Although there are a handful of omnivorous options, most of Hula’s locally sourced dishes are vegetarian and vegan friendly. The rainbow bowl, a rice and curry dish based around a daily selection of seasonal vegetables (in this case a warming mix of mushrooms and spinach) showcases their emphasis on freshness, while the acai bowl layers colourful berries and a crunch of nuts and granola over a sharp yet sweet banana and berry smoothie which is the perfect balance for the rainbow bowl’s spicy bite. An impossibly creamy vegan coconut cheesecake rounds the meal off perfectly with just a touch of decadence.
