Set in front of looping, Wonka-esque red, yellow and green sidewalk designs, Torta Los Picudos is a sponge-painted purveyor of smoothies and tortas, obviously. Its shelves and its counters of cartoon and realistic brick are lined with pineapples and oranges. This Mexican juice shop has been selling nutritious, natural agua frescas since long before juice cleanses became hip. Not to mention, Los Picudos is also a spot for healthy and delicious sandwiches, full of avocado and queso fresco. It looks like the height of silliness, being brightly colored as a macaw and all, but this Mission spot is a serious juice fiend’s paradise.
