The East Village needs exactly what Agavi Organic Juice Bar brings. On East 7th between 1st and 2nd, the juice bar is bright and lively with well-crafted, healthy treats--the perfect thing to lift your mood. This walk-in cafe run by Queens co-owners, Eddy and Andy serves everything from juices and smoothies to acai bowls and salads and that's not all.
Key to the charm of this new spot--and Treatmo partner--is the fun and social atmosphere. They live their motto: “Mixing juice with pleasure.” Characteristic of the warm nature of the two owners, visitors are commonly featured alongside them in group selfies that they post on their Agavi Juice Instagram page.
Don't let the charm fool you. The Agavi Juice team have taken note of every detail. The design is fresh and crisp imbuing a beachside, Hamptons-esque feel with the mix of natural and painted wood paneling and white exposed brick walls. It’s like summer year round.
The idea for Agavi Juice formed over shared interests. Friends from college, Eddy and Andy both enjoyed time at the gym and in the outdoors, plus both subscribed to a healthy diet that often included meals prepared at home. The progression to entrepreneurship and opening a shop together was a natural one, just like their organic food.
There are plenty of options at the cafe for you to work your way through, and certainly you'll quickly find your personal favorites. We loved the PB&J acai bowl: packed with nutrition, nondairy and delicious. You can also design your own juice/smoothie when you're ready to get creative.
Eddy's favorite? "The OMG -- the combo of fresh orange and papaya has a zing!" As a person who follows a disciplined diet and exercise routine, we asked him for tips on how to achieve fitness goals. "The key," he says, "is not to be lazy. Set a goal for yourself."
Our new goal is to make Agavi Juice a big part of our health routine. And they've just made it even easier. The latest arrival at the shop is their bottled, cold-pressed juice. The perfect treat for a friend.
Download Treatmo, add Treatmo Family, then Favorite Agavi Juice. We'll treat one on the house all day June 10 and 11!
