It’s no secret that River North is the place to be for great food, and that includes juice bars! Whether you’re looking for a grab-and-go bulletproof coffee or green juice, or want a place to meet a friend over smoothie bowls, these are some of River North’s top unique spots to grab a healthy lunch.
Left Coast Juice Bar- Great “Hang Out” Spot to Work or Meet
Left Coast offers cold pressed juices, salads, wraps, smoothies and smoothie bowls, and California-inspired dishes like the Laguna avocado toast or Montocito Hash. The River North location is a great coffee shop alternative if you’re looking for a place to work. The upstairs seating area has plenty of quiet tables to spread out. The spacious, semi-enclosed park is really what makes Left Coast River North so special. In the warmer months, work or meet friends at the park on premise, which features ample seating and always seems to be buzzing with social activity. Left Coast is located in the retail space of Exhibit on Superior apartments.
Hi-Vibe Juice Bar- Extensive Menu With Something For Everyone
The eclectic menu at Hi-Vibe is really what sets this spot apart. Stop by Hi-Vibe for a great selection of vegan, paleo, raw, and keto options as well as adaptogens and superfoods galore. It truly seems that no detail was spared in the curation of this menu. Try one of several nutrient dense smoothies, juices, power shots, pitaya or acai bowls, keto coffees, matcha and adaptogenic teas, as well as a multitude of snacks and salads. A go-to favorite is the G8 juice. With its low sugar content, stacked all-vegetable ingredient list, and light, refreshing taste, there’s nothing more you could want in a cold pressed juice. If cold pressed juice isn’t your beverage of choice, there are lots of other great options. If you’re looking for a caffeine free hot beverage this fall, be sure to try the grassed activated bone broth. This paleo soup comes in a coffee cup and is packed with nutrients and protein to curb midday cravings. It doesn’t hurt that it tastes incredible! The Kill Shot is another fall go-to, as its ingredients, like oil of oregano, are propertied to fend off the sniffles. Hi-Vibe has two River North locations: One is located on the second floor of Merchandise Mart and the other is on Kinzie Street, across from EnV Chicago apartments. Click here to see the menu!
Real Good Stuff Co- Best Healthy Dessert
Everything on the menu here is very good, but the “Noyo Froyo” is real good. The vegan, chemical-free, unpasteurized soft serve is made with almond milk, filtered water, coconut nectar, and vanilla. Its finally possible to enjoy soft serve without deviating from your clean eating lifestyle. Choose between chocolate charcoal or blue vanilla flavors. Add some healthy toppings (like bee pollen, cacao nibs, or chia seeds) to top it off or get it in a gluten-free cake cone. Noyo is available at the Old Town, Southport, and River North locations. Real Good’s River North location is located across the street from 640 N Wells apartments. Although indoor seating is limited, the outdoor patio is a great quiet place to enjoy your snack. This incredible delight is truly one of a kind and just part of what makes Real Good unique.
