On March 18th, Nekter Juice Bar at South Coast Plaza officially opened and we were there for a sneak preview! The store vibe was inviting and decorated with inspirational messages to promote living well. Some fresh juices we sampled were The Buzz, The Greenie, and Toxin Flush as well as Pitaya Superfood and Acai Banana Berry from the Bowl Bar.
Both The Buzz and Toxin Flush had a strong ginger presence but I have been back to Nekter since then and enjoyed them both more the second time around. I am really not a fan of ginger so I asked them to go light, and now I like it better or maybe I got used to the taste. If you really don't like ginger, they have several other options like The Greenie which has parsley, kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, lemon and apple.
From the Bowl Bar, we had a choice between the Pitaya Superfood and Acai Banana Berry base. Toppings available were hempseed granola, blueberries, strawberries, gluten-free granola, bananas, raw coconut flakes, chia seeds, and agave nectar. What a delicious brunch! Nekter Juice Bar's new South Coast Plaza location is located on the 1st floor in the Crate & Barrel wing across from Champagne Bakery Cafe at 3333 Bear Street in Costa Mesa, California.
