You won't find any sugar packets at Red Apples Juice Bar. That's because the bar sweetens its trademark drinks with freshly cut fruit and, for those with an especially active sweet tooth, honey. Juices and smoothies incorporate entire fruits and vegetables into delicious combinations, including orange, grape, strawberry, and kale. Daily specials highlight a rotating roster of drink flavors, as well as a vegetable soup such as zucchini and corn or cream of carrot.
Coffee in Motion’s baristas brew cups of Millars organic, wood-roasted, fair-trade coffee beans to create gourmet drive-thru coffees and espressos. At the Mission Street location, a cherry-hued bus serves caffeine-seeking patrons around the clock, as the café's 24-hour schedule allows patrons to flout legally mandated naptimes. Along with coffee, the staff serves up a full menu of real fruit smoothies, fresh pastries, and toasted bagel sandwiches with a choice of toppings. For tea drinkers, locally brewed My Chai teas awaken sleepy patrons and incite their heart rates to soar like Amelia Earhart's pet falcon.
A stripe of bright green skirts each LimeBerry's ceiling, leading patrons' eyes to a bank of stainless-steel dispensers framed in petite tiles. There, patrons fill paper cups with swirled ribbons of fro-yo flavors, such as rich chocolate truffle, tart wildberry, and creamy cake batter—up to 15 varieties in all. Confectionery caravans then move on to a toppings bar where they load on up to 80 choices of edible provisions, including warm fudge, fresh fruit, nuts, and marshmallow cream. Bright-green chairs host noshers beneath framed action shots of blueberries sticking triple backflips off a Yurchenko vault.
