Moon Juice is a must visit if you’re in the Melrose area of LA. We visited recently after stocking up at nearby cult make-up store Glossier and on our way to thrifting at nearby Fairfax. If it’s a scorching LA day, as it was when we were there, then there’s a huge variety of  delicious juices on offer and an adaptogenic alchemy bar mixing supercharged drinks on site. It’s a perfect grab and go pitstop and a great place to stock up on plant powered products of all sorts.

Moon Juice was created by Amanda Chantal Bacon. She  describes it as a “modern alchemist’ store celebrating the healing force of plants. There’s no food, but there is an amazing selection of plant-based, supercharged drinks to grab and go.

The space

Outside are cute white tables that shine bright in the LA sunshine. Inside there are wooden walls, a raw copper alchemy bar and a spiral patterned floor. The wall of fridge juices provide a rainbow of colour.

The fresh juice test

Moon Juice stocks a wide range of organic cold-pressed juices, mylks, coffees and tonics.

We picked the refreshingly, zingy Cilantro Celery Punch with the help of the super friendly staff. Described as a heavy metal detoxer meets gatorade, it hit the spot with its original combo of celery, green apple, coriander, ginger and lemon.

 

There’s a wide selection of smoothies on offer at the alchemy bar.

Here you can customise your lattes or teas with adaptogens and power blends including including Sex Dust. It’s described as “a warming potion that will send waves of blood to all the right places”.

What else?

The shop. It’s great to browse as it stocks everything nutritious that you could think of. You can stock up on their adaptogenic Moon Dust and Protein blends, Moon Pantry goods, super supplements and their Beauty Shroom skincare range.
