I’ve been going to Juice Me Too for years, and I’m honestly not entirely sure how I found it. But I’m so glad that I did find this Black-owned juice bar.
Juice Me too is located right outside of the perimeter of Atlanta in Austell, Georgia, nestled in a marketplace strip right across the parking lot from LA Fitness (when I had my membership, I would stop by Juice Me Too for a post-workout smoothie).
The shop itself has the counter where you order, and a bar overlooking the parking lot, as well as a couple of tables where you can sit as you wait or enjoy your order. The space feels light and fresh, much like the food.
Food and Beverages:
If I’m being honest, I go to Juice Me Too mostly for the smoothies and the juices. As I’ve previously mentioned in summertime preparations and eating better, the Maho Bay smoothie (made with spinach, mango, apple juice, pineapple, and banana) and the Pineapple Pete juice (made with pineapple, apple, and mint) are longtime favorites. Outside of those two, there are four smoothie flavors, as well as the option to create your own, and three juice flavors. I have enjoyed all of the smoothies that I have tried, with the Chocolate Paradise (made with banana, peanut butter, cacao nibs, almond milk, and agave nectar) being the current go-to choice. Most of the juices have combinations of fruits and/or vegetables that I never would have thought up, but are really good. I would not have been caught dead intentionally eating or drinking anything with beets, but the way the St. Maarten’s Island juice combines beets with carrot, apple, lemon, and pineapple, I could actually drink it multiple times every day. If you need a quicker boost, there are power shots and hydration options, which I haven’t tried yet.
If you are looking for food, the food menu offers options that are good to eat at any point in the day. There are bowls and wraps and salads and oatmeal and more. Although there are things that I would not ordinarily choose to eat or even knew existed—like walnut meat—I have enjoyed them in the moment and have felt great afterward. My current favorite are the energy bites, which are made of flax seed, cacao nib, craisins, honey, coconut flake, chia seed, vanilla, peanut butter, and oats. They come six to a package, but eating even one or two is satisfying and keeps me going for longer than I anticipated. I love that I do not ever have to choose between good taste and good for me.
Smoothies are $5.50, $6.50, and $7.25 for 12, 16, and 24 ounces respectively. You can also get a prep-at-home smoothie kit which includes six cups for $35. Juices come in 16–ounce bottles for $8.25. Salads and wraps range between $7.75 and $9.75 and you can get six energy bites for $3.50.
Due to the small staff, there may be a little bit of a wait for your order, but the staff is always very knowledgeable and friendly. And the wait is always worth it.
If I could, I would have Juice Me Too every single day. But, for now, I’ll enjoy it as a sometimes treat. I love the way I feel when I get to enjoy Juice Me Too and I think you will…too.
