Fresh Start

$5.50 ยท 1 Review

Sprouting up amongst the budding handful of eateries at Tai Seng's Irving Place is this juice shop, which blends up healthy smoothies and substantial fruit bowls. It's a decent option for office workers looking for a healthy breakfast, or even to grab a very decent Coffee (from $2) brewed using Brother Basil & Co. beans from Melbourne. The Juices (from $4.50) are fresh and the combinations tasty, but we do wish they could be more generous with the portion sizes. Try Fresh Start ($5.50), which blends pineapple, pear, lemon, ginger, mint and chia seeds for a refreshing pick-me-up. On the other hand, their smoothie bowls are very filling. We tried Going Nuts ($12), which sees a peanut butter smoothie base topped with fresh fruit, seeds and granola. It's richer in mouthfeel and a more interesting option compared to fruity acai bowls, which they also serve ($12).
Pro tip: They took quite a while to prepare our orders even though we were the only customers. This is hopefully a teething problem they'll soon work out, but bear that in mind for now if you're in a rush.
