Summer is coming! You can feel it in the air (finally) in Toronto. With this spring awakening there are more than just the cherry blossoms opening up in the city. This week we had the opportunity to check out the opening of The Good Press, a new juice spot in Yorkville that offers fresh cold-pressed juices, full-service smoothie bar and incredibly delicious Acai Fruit Bowls.
But The Good Press is not new to the juice scene. Husband and wife team, Andrew and Leila Ois, is behind Toronto’s favourite Sunshine Wholesome Market that has been offering healthy goodness for over 7 years. With The Good Press, the couple focuses on convenient, nutrient-dense juices and food with the highest quality ingredients sourced from local and organic farmers.
There are many juice combinations to choose from and what was different (and a stand-out addiction now for me) was the house-made cashew nut milk as well as the Acai Beauty Bowl – a very filling and nutritious snack complete with fresh fruit, acai puree, superfood granola, berries, avocado and coconut. It really was filling enough for me as it sustained me until dinner time. Knowing that it’s a healthy choice made me feel good about reaching for that instead of a burger for lunch!
The staff here are also quite knowledgeable about what they are serving you. Each member was carefully selected for their strong interest in nutrition and can offer you guidance and suggestions for whatever your needs. Want something to keep you alert for the rest of the afternoon of meetings? Need to recharge your energy? Recovering from a night of socializing? Their staff can help you make the right choices and even make custom blends…or just be tempted by the descriptions on the ready-to-go bottles!
The Good Press offers a perfect pick-me up as I’m often running through this part of town and with a desire to eat a little cleaner, it’s in an ideal location for something fast and delicious instead of always reaching for a coffee and a cookie!
Definitely worth checking out!
The Good Press is located at 87 Yorkville Ave., Toronto.
