As the name suggests, fresh fruit and veggies are “pressed” allowing the maximum amount of nectar to be extracted from the pulp and fiber, giving your the most raw & fresh juice possible, jam-packed with more vitamins & minerals than other types of juices. Apparently other styles of juicing which involve spinning blades can overheat & oxidise the juice, resulting in nutrient loss.
So there you go… I definitely learnt something new…Falling under the vida e caffé umbrella, Cold Press has that same contemporary, not-too-serious feel, and I really loved the simple yet striking decor as well the relaxed atmosphere of the place. It was of course bustling on the night, so I couldn’t grab any good venue shots, but I did manage to grab these from their Facebook page to give you a peek:
They also stock a variety of healthy snacks as well as coconut water and kombucha (a fermented drink made with black or green tea):We also enjoyed cocktails on the night thanks to Absolut Vodka. These were created using the various Cold Press juices, and it was a nice way to show that healthy can also be mixed up with a little touch of naughty at times:
- Cold Press also offers complementary WiFi
- And they do 3 different types of juice cleanses (if that’s something you’ve been wanting to try)
For more info, do call them on 021 418 1155, or simply pop in for a visit. You’ll find them right next to the Spar in Cape Quarter (The Square | 27 Somerset Road | De Waterkant).
I really do love that Cape Town is getting more and more healthy dining alternatives. It definitely helps, particularly during bikini season – otherwise known as the most stressful time of the year. 😉
PS. Thanks to Werner Ryke for the beautiful pro photos
