There is nothing better on a hot summer’s day than a refreshing and nutritious fresh juice. It cools you off, provides you with your daily dose of fruits and veggies and fills you up through that midday hunger.
We are so lucky in San Diego to have a wealth of incredible juice spots – it was so difficult to choose just three! Check out our short list of favorite juice and smoothie bars, and let us know if we missed your go-to, so we can give it a try!

Juice Wave is an incredible juice spot that provides locally-sourced produce for all of their juices, smoothies, acai bowls and healthy meals. This is a one-stop shop for whatever you are craving, and you can count on healthy, organic ingredients in everything on the menu (and their house-made almond milk is great!). Plus, you cannot beat the deals here: for the price of one smoothie in some juice bars, you can get a 12-ounce smoothie and an acai bowl of your choosing. Have your juice, and eat it too!
We recommend: Sweet Shaka Juice (it’s like a fruity mojito with all the goods!)
Add kale or spinach to this drink to give yourself that super food boost and get in your veggies while you sip!

Juice is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle while supporting local farmers and giving you only the best ingredients to boost your own immune system and overall health. Their specialty is cold-pressed juice, and the variety they offer will be sure to fill your juice fix every time.
We recommend: Oh! My Greens Juice (the pineapple gives this tart juice just the right amount of sweetness for happy taste buds!)

Vitality Tap is downtown San Diego’s best kept secret…or, it was until someone let the cat out of the bag! This may be last on the list, but not because it has not earned a #1 spot. Vitality is located inside Nutrition Zone, so you can do your vitamin and supplement shopping while you enjoy a delicious juice or smoothie of your choosing. What sets this place apart from the rest is the genius combinations they offer and the multiple benefits packed into each drink. You will not be disappointed by the flavors, and your tummy will thank you for providing it with all of the nutrients it needs for a successful, focused and active day.
We recommend: Stay Classy Smoothie (because immunity + energy + fiber makes for a well-rounded snack and all-around health boost!)
