Java Juice House is a new café in the Johnson City area specifically designed with personal health in mind.
They specialize in serving fresh, natural and organic, and they don’t add any extra fats, oils or dairy to their products. Their granola and almond butter (which I’ve tried and can confirm that it is delicious) are made in-house, and all cold-pressed juices are pressed and bottled on site as well. The café will soon offer a variety of menu items including customizable acai bowls and parfaits, raw smoothies, cold-pressed juices, crepes and coffee.
The young owner — who wishes to remain anonymous — states that there was a “vacuum in Johnson City” where plant-based diets and lifestyles, such as veganism and vegetarianism, weren’t being catered to. His motto comes from Hippocrates: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Much like every millennial’s dream, they will be offering avocado toast, along with other toasts and spreads as well. And their toasts are only $6.95, so you can still save up for your dream home. Their menu is easy and fresh, allowing their customers to incorporate nutrients into their diet that they might not normally get.
Java Juice House is geared toward all health-conscious eaters, but it seems as though it would be a nice place to study. The café offers free Wi-Fi and outlets and hopes to add later hours to accommodate those late-night study sessions. The doors opened for their soft opening on Aug. 25 and the Grand Opening began Sept. 3. They are open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

What is “Acai?”
Pronounced Ah-sigh-EE, this fruit is a native of Central and South America. It is a super food known for its health benefits including antioxidant properties as well as possible anti-aging and weight-loss benefits. Not only is it good for you, its sweet taste and versatility make it a great supplement for your breakfasts. You can buy it in a fruit juice form or drink it plain, add the powder to smoothies and yogurt, or blend the frozen puree to make a smooth, ice cream-like breakfast bowl, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
