In addition to the juice spots listed here, there are other places to enjoy a cold-pressed or fresh-squeezed beverage in Philadelphia. Let us know your top picks in the comments!

Here are a few of our favorite places to find fresh juice in Philly.

Sip-N-Glo Juicery

Sip ’n’ Glo can be thanked for helping the popularize juice culture to Philly with its South Street shop. Now, there is a second location in Rittenhouse and the Glo team has shifted to an entirely cold-pressed process. That means more goodness than ever in the inventive juices and smoothies. In addition to classic flavors like the Heart Beet (apple, carrot, beet, celery, ginger), they’re staying on top of current trends with inky-hued Pineapple Charcoal Lemonade with activated charcoal, and smoothies like the Blue Sky (blueberries, cashews, hemp seed protein, banana, and almond milk, all perfumed with lavender).

Stripp’d Juice

Philly’s newest juicery, Stripp’d, shares a space with Inspired Brews that's on the northern edge of Old City. Owner Khoran Horn has both a degree in culinary arts and a sense of humor, and he is putting both to work with his cold-pressed juices. The Woodermelon pairs watermelon with mint and lime. The Not Strawberry looks like fruit punch, and one can’t help but smile at the Jala at ya Boy, a light green kale-grapefuit-apple-lemon juice with a hit of jalapeño. It smells like it’ll be spicy, but it’s pleasantly sweet. With righteous snacks available like yeasted buckwheat waffles, chipotle guacamole toast and a brioche egg sandwich, it's a worthy destination.

P.S. & Co.

At Andrea Kyan’s beautiful Rittenhouse shop everything is 100-percent vegan, organic and gluten free: Simple weekend brunches, gluten-free French bread pizza nights, and occasional multi-course meals, along with busy breakfasts and lunches. P.S. & Co.’s menus and sweets — think coconut macaroons — are all made without animal products. While you can always grab-and-go the cold-pressed juices or fresh smoothies, you can also preorder a set selection of seasonal juices for a juice cleanse.

The doctor is in at HubBub via a new Juice Hub program. The Juice Doctor is a green-juice delivery service operating out of Ardmore that was previously available only through a subscription service. Now, two green juices — one sweeter, one more intense — are now available at all of HubBub Coffee’s locations. In addition, The Juice Doctor supplies HubBub with a classic orange juice and a super-unusual combination of pineapple, sweet potato, beet and carrot juices originally developed for the White Dog Cafe as a cocktail mixer.

Kamal’s Middle Eastern Specialties

Since 1981, long before fresh juice was trendy, Kamal Barouki and his family have been offering fresh juice and smoothies at their Reading Terminal Market restaurant, Kamal’s Middle Eastern Specialties. Select a juice to wash down a meal of shawarma, hummus and tabouli, or take one along with one of Kamal’s lovely spinach and feta hand pies for a tough-to-beat breakfast.

4 Seasons Juice Bar

The cardboard boxes of fruits and vegetables are stacked tall around this cash-only Reading Terminal Market staple and humming juicers move through the bounty quickly. Opt for one of 4 Seasons blends, or elect to build your own combination. The Love Boat matches banana and strawberry into a bright pink smoothie. Pineapple, coconut, banana is pulpy and tropical, and you can add a shot of freshly cut wheatgrass for deep green intensity.

Pure Fare

Go simple with Pure Fare’s fresh juice combinations: grapefruit with celery and parsley for a refreshing shot of green, pineapple with beet and lime for a rosy hue, or classic, bright orange and carrot juice. With house-made milks, too, plus breakfast oatmeal or veggie-loaded frittatas at less than $5 and fresh juices for $7, Pure Fare’s two locations are great places to get your juice fix.

Front Street Cafe

Front Street cafe is at the height of juice trends: It’s a coffee shop, it’s a restaurant and it’s a bar of both the alcohol and juice varieties. The Firefly glows yellow with turmeric in a blend of carrot, pineapple, lemon, orange and ginger juices. And the Pina Kaleada pairs pineapple juice, coconut water, kale and cucumber. For something a little more substantial try the modern smoothies that aren’t just sugar bombs. The Super Green is a balanced meal of hemp seeds, coconut, greens, cacao, chia, agave, and banana.

Animo

Animo is the place to go when you need more than juice to get through the day. This Arch street spot also has soups, salads and frozen banana custard that is made solely from whipped bananas. Even better? A burrito bar where you can build-your-own or rely on tried and true combinations like chicken with guacamole and spinach, or kale and quinoa with roasted vegetables and tomatillo salsa. Juices are made to order using a centrifugal extractor and come in playful combinations such as the Nirvana (cantaloupe, mango, banana, carrot) or the Key Lime Pie (avocado, banana, lime, granola, apple).
