Darlings, I don’t know about you, but I’m a juice junkie, as I like to call it. The juicing scene is huge here in Cape Town, with juice stalls popping up at every food market and on every trendy street corner. While it’s no secret that I cherish all things sweet and buttery, I simply can’t resist cold, freshly squeezed juices from these five fabulous juice bars


1. Orchard On Long

This hip and happening juice bar is a small, cosy space tucked away on the ever-bustling Long Street. It offers customers a big selection of freshly squeezed, cold-pressed juices that are made from only the freshest produce sourced from the organic rooftop garden above the shop. The juice bar even stocks their own range of detox juices that form part of their beneficial juice cleanse programmes.
