All Good Things at Press Juice Co.
There is something so special about this quaint spot that I frequent on my days off. Located in the heart of bustlin' Collingwood, Press Juice Co. has been slinging nutrient packed smoothies, whipping up next-level salads and offering meal options using natural + organic ingredients since day one. Fit for the gluten free, the vegan, the vegetarian, the dairy free, and the girl like me who more often than not needs a healthy change-up from all that pizza consumption.
Miranda Kofoed, Owner of Press Juice Co., wanted a spot that served food she would feel good feeding her children. There aren't many shops in town like Press where you can get "fast-food" that is delicious, organic and full of fruits and vegetables in the rawest form. Amongst their longstanding list of smoothies + salads, they now offer some wicked treats for your on-the-go moments including GF banana chocolate chip muffins, power balls, protein bars and peanut butter stuffed dates coated in chocolate (no refined sugars here, friends!)
SIDE STORY - Once upon a time, I worked full-time at Press Juice Co. and I can say with insider knowledge, it's exactly what it seems from the other side of the counter. The people who come in to work every day, they haul ass and 100% want to be there - to help you to make easy & healthier decisions. They straight up care about what you feed your body and they strive to give you a positive experience every single visit.
If you haven't popped into Press yet, let me tell you about a few of their award-winning smoothies. All ingredients are organic, and packed full of all the good stuff. Visit the shop for the full roster.

I just gotta say that this place is my home away from home. I spend most of my free time popping in to say hi, grabbing a bite, sipping on some cold-pressed juice or gulping down one of their ISO waters because I like to enjoy a couple of G+T's on the weekend. That combination of dates, h2o, sea salt and lime hits the spot and helps me hydrate the proper way. Trust me, I know!
Feel good food for the feel good soul. It's worth the visit!
