The energy boost you need on a hot day in the city is just around the corner. Look for café counters full of fruit, or type one of our following favorites into your GPS.

JOIN Juice Bar (24 Romvis) favors Greek fruit, including apples from Pelion and oranges from Lakonia, whenever they’re available, and they make smoothies using Greek yogurt. The juices at Novagea (1 Vakchou, Plaka / 4 Amalias, Syntagma) follow recipes created by a nutritionist and contain Greek herbs proven beneficial to our health, like rosemary, mint and thyme.

More super-healthy options are available at Pure Juice (21 Sina), where you’ll find detox juices and special options for those with stomach issues, as well as energy bowls. Try the vegan chocolate mousse bowl with fruits and granola. Finally, all juices at Ethos (30 Petraki, Syntagma) are cold-pressed. We like their spinach, cucumber and orange juice, as well as the one with beet, carrot, apple and ginger.
