4309 W 27th Pl., Kennewick
The environment of this café is lovely, with a vintage interior and exceptionally kind customer service. Just Juice is the best place to go, not only for good juice but also for a strong detox. Their juice menu is listed a bit differently, too — instead of a specific name, they go by letter and number.
An example is an R-1 drink. This juice contains beets, apple, carrot, lemon, and ginger. The flavor is sweet and packed with a nice kick of spice from the ginger. Another drink that is a customer favorite is the F-1. Part of the Fresh section on their menu, this juice consists of cucumber, apple, coconut, water, lemon, and aloe vera. It’s very refreshing and a perfect hydrating juice.
But that’s just two of the many drinks at Just Juice. Check out their Instagram for hours and more information.
