Hoboken Health: Buddha Press Vegan {Organic} Juice Spa Opens

Written by:

We’ve always said Hoboken needed an organic juice bar {see here for proof}…and voila! Our prayers have been answered! Buddha Press, an organic, vegan, and awesome juice bar {well, they call it a spa!} has just opened at 322 Washington Street. Already having received two visits from us, you know it’s going to be a go-to spot.

The first order we made at Buddha Press; the Cocoolata Smoothie: mango, pineapple, banana, swiss chard, coconut oil, and water. It was really yummy, with a slight touch of “greens” but not too pungent {hence all the added fruits}. YUM!

Some of their juice menu options:

You can order these fresh {for $9 each — notttt cheap, but also they are pretty large, and are organic so totally worth it}, and they also come cold pressed in to-go pre-packaged bottles:

Just today, I bought four bottles of the cold-pressed juice for a mini juice cleanse after a party-filled weekend. So perfect for a reset!

 

Besides smoothies and juices, they also have a small menu of buddha bowls {containing anti-oxidant-filled fruits and superfruits like acai}. We haven’t ordered one yet, but we hear they’re HUGE in size. Stumptown Coffee is also on the premises, and they also offer fresh wheatgrass and other wellness shots, plus various healthy bites like these crunch chia balls below. Word on the street is that they will slowly expand their menu but are starting simple right now.

There were also a few vegan/raw/organic salad bowls:

Overall, we loved the vibe of Buddha Press and cannot wait to return. The staff was friendly, and when I was picking out my juices to-go, one worker even came over to give me suggestions which was very nice. It’s not really a place you would sit and relax with a juice + wifi, but they do have bar stools for you to sit and sip juice for a few minutes. It has a chic Manhattan vibe which is appropriate since one of the owners is Derek Axelrod, owner of Mexican restaurant Teqa in NYC. The prices are a little on the steep side, but for fresh, organic, raw juices {which is a first for Hoboken}, pretty amazing!

Cheers to healthy living in Hoboken!
