Boston, DowntownCocobeet, the best organic juice bar in Boston

Cocobeet describes itself as Boston’s original organic juice bar and offers a huge variety of cold-pressed juices, superfood smoothies, raw vegan treats and detox juice cleanses.

Everything is organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, non-HPP and above all, locally sourced.

They say their juice cleanses “offer more nutrition” than any other on offer in Boston.

When we travel we like a dash ‘n’ go breakfast so we can get out and explore as quickly as possible especially if we only have 24 hours in a city.

Boston is no exception and so Cocobeet was the perfect pitstop for a healthy start to the day.

The setting

Light, bright, clean and fast is how we would describe the branch we visited in City Hall Plaza. The fridges were stacked with bright-coloured freshly made smoothies and juices.

Local office workers were queuing up for their breakfast.

The little things

We think it is a big thing – the story behind the brand.

Co-founder Kyle began Cocobeet as a very personal quest for pure, healthy, and delicious grab-and-go food.

After his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, his family began eating plant-based meals.

But the daily sourcing, preparation and creativity needed to make great meals was overwhelming when also dealing with a busy family and work. Finding pre-made, good food they could trust was of highest nutritional quality and tasty was impossible.

They knew they were not alone in the search and so along with co-founder Onur, a certified holistic health coach, they started Cocobeet, a community oasis in Boston.

Kyle is passionate about the importance of supporting local, small business in order to maintain the vibrancy and uniqueness of neighbourhoods.

The fresh juice test

There is a wide variety of green juices on offer. We liked the unusual blend called Green Gold – fennel, spinach, kale, pear, celery and cucumber.

It was refreshing to find a new mix-up of green ingredients.

What we ate

We tried the chocolate protein bowl, a blend of almond butter, cacao, strawberries, avocado topped with berries, pecans and coconut.

And we tried the açai berry bowl – açai, strawberry, and sunflower seed butter topped with granola and coconut. Both were delicious – fresh, beautifully presented and tasty.

We also liked the Blue Coconut smoothie which was a soothing mix of almond butter, blueberries, coconut oil and chia seeds. It was served in a handy bottle rather than cup which was useful for sightseeing.

What else?

Don’t forget that everything comes with an added city tax.

They deliver throughout the city which is good news if you need a juice cleanse at your hotel.

The bill

Juices $7.50 – $9.95
Smoothies $7.95 – $9.75
Breakfast Bowls $8.95 – $9.95


What made us glow?

Co-founder Kyle is passionate about creating a local business to keep neighbourhoods intact.

We sat and chatted to a native Bostonian on the wall outside as we ate our breakfast and he gave us a whistle-stop history of the city – community at its best!
