Juices, salads and raw food a speciality in the bright, airy surroundings of this Byres Road café.
Fresh, bright and clean – all attributes that fit the food and drink, as well as décor and atmosphere of this home of healthy living. As you might expect, the garden theme makes its way unobtrusively into the interior design, with lots of plants about and ‘grass’ underfoot. Raw food is Juice Garden’s trademark speciality, from mains like raw lasagne and macadamia and spinach cannelloni, to raw desserts such as cheesecake made with date syrup, cashew cream and fruit. Health benefits aside, the food is undeniably tasty, and the plentiful range of juices includes greens like kale, broccoli and spinach, and breakfast smoothies filled with oats and banana. Chia seed puddings, with the consistency of ice-cream, are flavoured with fresh strawberry or blueberry compote, and are an unusual and delicious addition to the menu.
