Charleston has no shortage of juice bars. There's Huger Street's Huriyali where juices are made with a nod to co-owner Ruchi Mistry's native India. On King we have The Daily where juices like the Spicy Red Head — Carrot, Red Apple, Ginger, Lemon, and Cayenne Pepper — can be purchased with the latest culinary publication like Cherry Bombe
magazine. Then there's Whisk Coffee & Juice Bar on Meeting which has its own eight-juice list as well.
Now Five Loaves
on Cannon Street joins the juicing trend. Its new juice bar, next door to the restaurant, is now open. The tiny, bright space is exactly as co-owner Casey Glowacki described it, a take-out only spot serving a variety of juices, smoothies, and yerba mate.
Smoothies are $7 while juices are $5.75 for a 16 oz. and $6.50 for a 20 oz. I tried the Born to Run smoothie this morning, a mix of mango, chia seeds, banana, coconut water, and kale, and the green blend was a pleasant, if occasionally chewy, drink.
There are two stools in the window for those who want to rest while they wait and the service was friendly and prompt.
Glowacki told us in June that in the evening those waiting for a Five Loaves table can enjoy a glass of wine in the juice bar as well.
Five Loaves juice bar (43 B Cannon St.) opens at 7:30 a.m. daily.
