Leafy Box serves up healthy salads and juices in Yaletown.
If you’re into the cleansing thing, it’s a good option if you don’t have lunch and you’re in the area.
The inside was quite large and there are distinct areas to go grocery shopping, make a salad at the salad bar, and a hot food section. All the produce looks really fresh.
The salad bar has its separate fruit and veggie section. For some odd reason, there was even jello as one of the options.
Of course there is a juice and smoothie bar.
With all the fresh produce, the juice is mighty enticing.
For my lunch, I grabbed a salad and a bottle of their cold pressed raw juice.
Essential Greens Juice ($7) has kale, spinach, celery, apple, parsley, cucumber, lemon and ginger. Lots of good stuff bottled up inside.
It’s made from 4 pounds of produce in each bottle.
The juice was good, but the only ingredient that threw me off a bit was the cucumber.
Overall, I do like the concept of the store and I would come again for juice.
It is a bit expensive, but if you’re lazy to make your own juice, definitely check this place out.
