15 East Market Street
Overall score: ★★★★☆
Juice Warrior is a fully vegan, organic and raw juice café located in the new Arches development on East Market Street, Edinburgh. It’s marketed primarily as an outlet for the company’s healthy juices, but it also has a delicious vegan menu full of brunch options, alternative lunch ideas and sweet treats.
The premises itself is quite small so the menu is very much designed for you to take away, although there is some limited seating available.
In all fairness though, I think these natural and healthy treats should be enjoyed out in the fresh air, so why not take your juice and snacks along to the nearby Princes Street Gardens and enjoy al-fresco?
Snacks available at Juice Warrior
A word of warning – the smoothie bowls pack a punch and are very filling, ideal if you’re looking for a healthy yet satisfying snack. The fully raw “Fo – Nuts” are a treat as well – very sweet and dense, they make a fine substitute for their sugary, dairy-filled and not-quite-as-healthy counterparts! They come in packs of four, but you’ll find that one is plenty and might even be tempted to share.
But don’t worry, that ridiculous notion passes quickly enough.
