Something Fresh is coming to Downtown Oakville.

Fresh Kitchen and Juice Bar will soon be opening a new location at 215 Lakeshore Rd. East.

A staple for modern, plant-based food and drinks, founder Ruth Tal restaurant started the popular company back in 1991 as a juice bar on Queen West in Toronto.

“For 20 years it’s been our mission to prove that a plant-based diet can be satisfying, energizing and craveable,” the company said on its website.

With several locations already across the Greater Toronto Area, Executive Chef Jennifer Houston, a founding partner at Fresh, has created “craveable” menus for over two decades.

Along with Tal, the two have co-written five Canadian best-selling cookbooks based on menus from the past 25 years.

The food is 100 per cent plant-based and is made daily in-house from original recipes, using who, natural ingredients.

The freshly-squeezed juices are made to order and the fresh fruit and vegetable juices work as nutritional building blocks to bring you closer to better health and well-being than you’ve ever been before.

There’s fresh juices like the Green 2.0, which includes kale, spinach, parsley, celery, lemon, apple, ginger and cayenne. Or try the one that started it all, the 24 Karat Juice.

There’s also power shakes, like the Galaxy with passionfruit, mango, oat mile, banana, orange and lemon, or even homemade sparkling lemonade or fresh ginger ale.

Lunch and dinner food options include burgers and wraps, salads, tacos, fires and bowls like the Powerhouse consisting of avocado, chickpeas, tofu steaks, salad greens, microgreens, toasted mixed nuts, tomato, scallions, powerhouse sauce and lemon.

“Our goal has always been to inspire all people – omnivores, flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans – to try healthy, delicious, plant-based food,” said the co-founders. “We want to be the place where everyone feels welcome and united by their love for our food and juice.”
