There’s beets, spinach, kale, and spectacular customer service in south Oakville.
And it’s not pretentious or overpriced.
A brand new juice bar, Trish Juice, is now open along Lakeshore Rd. W. (meaning there’s a good chance this cute resto might be near your home or work).
It’s a great breakfast, lunch, or light dinner option, especially after a particularly punishing training session in the weight room.

Or if your hands are full with a baby — the owner will stop what she’s doing to help a mom with a stroller get in and out the door.
But back to the bevvies.
I love me some fresh juice, and the beet juice, with carrot and lemon, didn’t disappoint.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather eat my calories than drink them but there’s one exception and it’s a real juice made right before my eyes, full of brightly hued fruit and vegetables, poured into a tall glass.
Isn’t that gorgeous?
If you appreciate such healthy but tasty concoctions (the cranky old guy who runs my gym most certainly will!), you will want to check it out.
Trish Juice is in the former K.B. Rugs spot.
You’ll find hip, trendy items such as Avocado Toast, (we tried the Hummus Toast, topped with alfalfa sprouts — yum).
If the name sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve seen it in Brampton and Mississauga — both locations opened in 2017.
This independently owned and operated juice bar will not only serve fresh juice, but also smoothies (including bowls), milkshakes, cocktails, salads, wraps, and quick health shots.
Even better news? All menu items are under $15 — so it’s perfect for anyone looking for a healthy, affordable lunch.
Exhibit A: Avocado Toast – served on rye bread – is $2.99.
Exhibit B: Salads and wraps are $5.99.
We dug right into the Maple Apple salad (it’s perfect for a sweltering summer day), with spinach, kale, chopped almonds and walnuts, granny smith apple, feta, and a tangy maple dijon dressing.
Portions aren’t stingy.
As far as beverages go, diners can order some unique blends, including Vitality (pear, green apple, celery, fennel and kale), Mojito (cucumber, lime, pear, mint) and Energizer (apple, carrot, ginger, mint) juices.
Health aficionados can also grab some cheat-meal treats, such as Berry Cheesecake (blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, cream cheese and soy milk) and nutrient-dense items such as Coco Green (mango, banana, spinach, coconut milk and orange) smoothies.
Juice will be freshly squeezed, and the other drinks are also made in-house.
Bubble teas are also available in a variety of flavours.
Cheers to another option for vegans, vegetarians, and others who dabble in the plant-based lifestyle, or simply appreciate a break from greasy fare.
