I found Agave Juice Bar when I took an alternate way home one day. It was nestled in this shopping center next to a Super Mercado Jalisco. Instead of staying on the road, I turned and headed towards the restaurant.
The interior is modern and clean, a sign that the juice bar hasn’t been around too long. If I remember correctly, I was told that they opened late last year. The restaurant isn’t too big, but a good size if you want to sit with a small group and enjoy a juice or a smoothie bowl.
The staff there is really pleasant, too. One of the smoothie baristas (is that even a real term) was wearing a Falcons hoodie when I came in, so I knew that this place was legit.
I ordered the Agave Blanco, a smoothie that has an almond milk base with dates, cinnamon, coconut seeds, and a lot of other good tasting stuff. I tried waiting until I got home to drink it, but I couldn’t. It was good — mildly sweet, but filling.
I came back for another one the next morning.
Then a smoothie bowl later in the week. Smoothie bowls still haven’t made their way throughout the burbs of Gwinnett as I would’ve liked, so this is a win in itself.
And an Agave Azul smoothie too. This was sweeter than its sister smoothie, but made for a nice morning snack.
As I’ve been embracing a healthier lifestyle and palate, I was really glad to find a solid smoothie bar (that appears to be minority-owned) within 10 minutes from my job. The prices are about $10 and under, so frequent trips can add up, however you have to pay for health one way or another. I’ll gladly charge mine to credit here.
