Dedicated to an entire lifestyle built around healthy, unprocessed, raw foods and ingredients, Daily Juice has been a regular (or daily) stop for folks in and around Austin since 2003. Passionate about providing healthy, not processed food options, there are four locations to choose from in Austin alone! Whether you’re inside of the HEB at Four Points, in North Austin or even in in the Westlake area, you won’t have to search far for any of these incredible spots. You can’t find these juices in stores because everything is made fresh and you can taste the difference. Be nice to your body and mind when you spend time at Daily Juice.

Particularly prideful about their want to customize any and every order, Nekter Juice Bar on West Ave in Seaholm Residences has something for you, or is willing to make the creation happen. Cold pressed juices, cold coffees and power shots are only the basic descriptions of what’s available on this menu. Not to mention the PB&J variations of their acai bowls.

SunLife Organics Austin Texas Logo

SunLife Organics

4.0 ★
After giving up a life of drugs, addiction and junk food back in 2003, owner of SunLife Organics Khalil Rafati spent years traveling through India, Indonesia and Central America to find the secrets to making “super foods” taste as good as they are for you. Opening SunLife organics seemed to be the best way to share her knowledge. Since 2011, SunLife organics has made a home on Congress Street and wants to treat you to a “Fountain of Youth” or “Million Dollar Smoothie” from 8 am – 7 pm every day. For those days when a smoothie isn’t enough to fill the void, you’ll find a selection of power bowls to choose from that are full to the brim with all the greatest ingredient combos. We recommend the Buddha Bowl made with acai, it’s delicious and quite filling! With tons of unique ingredients, maybe you will even learn something new while you’re inside!

Sharetea Austin Texas Logo

ShareTea

4.6 ★
Making waves in the realm of non-alcoholic drinks since 1992, ShareTea began as a tiny little shop serving coffee drinks in Taiwan and has since expanded to cover most of the world. From 12 – 10 pm daily, this Austin location is only one of almost 500 stores around the world, they must be doing something right. What could possibly go better with a hot Texas day than a Kiwi Fruit or Wintermelon Lemonade tea? Made from the highest quality tea leaves, each drink from ShareTea is like a trip to many different countries all in one cup. ShareTea is about more than sitting together and enjoying a drink, this is about a shared experience.

Teapioca Lounge Austin Texas Logo

Teapioca Lounge

5.0 ★
Four locations in Austin alone and twenty two all around the states, there’s something to the Teapioca Lounge that can’t be denied. Available menu options range from regular old coffee, tea and boba drinks to fully customizable drinks and slushies. These aren’t the old school cherry ICEE filled with corn syrup either. Take your pick from any base beverage and then add your flavors or toppings. Take a nostalgic little trip back to a time when processed sugars weren’t so scary, without taking in all the bad ingredients with these fresh fruit slushies. Go crazy with the varying options, the staff at any Teapioca Lounge is stoked to aid in the creation of a drink that is unique to your taste preferences. You’re not going to find a more patient set of employees anywhere, except maybe Chick Fil A, but Teapioca lounge is open on Sundays.

Kung Foo Tea Austin Texas Logo

Kung Fu Tea

4.6 ★
With two, soon to be three, stores in the Austin area, Kung Fu Tea began as one shop in Queens, NY and has grown to over 350 franchises worldwide. Founders of National Bubble Tea Day, you know this business means business when considering your cup of tea. Even the most avid of coffee drinkers might consider making the switch after a cup of “Milk Cap” or “Coco Cream Wow” amongst many other selections. Take a trip to Guadalupe street or Crossroad Plaza (and eventually, Highway 71) and know that you won’t leave disappointed. Kung Fu Tea packs a serious punch (we had to say it) and you’ll have to try it to believe it. Keep a lookout for their soon to be open location on Highway 71.

Encouraging guests to come in and take a load off, Feng Cha takes the time to provide anyone who enters with a serene environment along with drinks that, down to the last detail, are prepared with the intent of giving your body all it needs.

CoCo’s Cafe Austin Texas Logo

CoCo’s Cafe

4.5 ★
While the Taiwanese themed menu at CoCo’s cafe could take up an entire article’s worth of words, we aren’t here to discuss the infamous Green Onion pie, or any other tasty dishes. What we are here to talk about is eight different drink menus, including one that is nothing but a “make your own” option full of the most unique ingredients. Satisfy any craving by wandering into the Guadalupe st or Research Blvd locations from 10 am – 9 pm. CoCo’s cafe is one of those local wonders that Austin residents can’t seem to quit talking about, you will understand why once you go for a visit. You know what they say, if you know you know.

Fruitealicious Austin Texas Logo

Fruitealicious

5.0 ★
Not just baristas, mixologists take charge of the counter at Fruitealicious. Take your pick from bubble teas, espresso and even frozen fruit drinks made with care by each employee. For a surprisingly spicy treat, take a chance on the El Diablo. If nothing on the menu tickles your fancy (we doubt that will happen) then pick the option to select your own ingredients. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up discovering the newest big thing! Weekdays you’ll want to stop by from 12 am – 9 pm, from 11 am on weekends. Don’t hesitate, just go straight to Fruitealicious on Airport blvd.

SquareRut Kava Bar austin texas logo

SquareRut Kava Bar

4.7 ★
For a different take on non- alcoholic beverages check out SquareRut Kava Bar. Kava is a ceremonial drink native to the South Pacific islands that is used to promote relaxation and aid in stress and anxiety relief. Generally used as an alternative to alcohol, Kava is a leaf that is ground and brewed into a tea. SquareRut brews several different types of kava with differing properties and these distinct varieties can both be found on tap and are available to go. If kava isn’t your thing then they do have other options like kombucha as well. So sit back and sip on something you might have not tried before and enjoy the funky island vibes provided at one of their three different locations in the Austin Area. They have one in Belterra, one on North Lamar and our favorite one on Barton Springs road.
