PURE COLD PRESS IS A VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN-FRIENDLY RESTAURANT LOCATED IN COOLIDGE CORNER IN BROOKLINE MASSACHUSETTS.
We believe that eating seasonal locally grown food is the best way to achieve a healthy lifestyle. All our food is prepared fresh everday and our menu is constantly changing to give you the best the area has to offer.
Since I wrote my first review just a month ago, I've fallen in love with Pure Cold Press.
Their custom salads are pricey – at least 10 dollars – but worth every penny. The ingredients are fresh, creative and delicious. Options include less common items such as lentils, cauliflower, black sesame seeds, pickled onions… I could go on and on. The many salad dressings are also very unique and you can opt for fresh squeezed lemon juice for a lighter salad. Plus, the portion sizes are generous – they really pack the greens into those containers. This is my go-to for a pre or post-workout meal now.
The service has also significantly improved – it seems like they have more staff and it's paying off. The place is often packed, (awesome to see), and they keep the line moving along with fast yet friendly service.
My only remaining suggestion is that they offer salads in real dishes in order to reduce the waste. I saw that they were serving food on plates – why not salads too?
I was so glad to discover Pure Cold Press! Unlike most of the other juice places in the Boston area, Pure Cold Press has an expansive food selection (salads, sandwiches, oatmeal, pancakes, acai bowls, even Belgian waffles). Also, they actually have space, which is a rarity among Boston juice joints. Owner is extremely friendly and really cares about making his customers happy. Definitely returning soon!
Just stumbled on Cold Press as we were doing some shopping in the area. I would definitely recommend grabbing one of there Cold Pressed Juices. I tried "Blue Dream" on a recommendation and I'm glad I did, wow what a delicious cold pressed juice. I even paid for a less inexpensive bottle "NRG" ($7.99) and the owner swapped me out for free to the "Blue Dream" ($9.99) because he was looking to satisfy the customer. The vegetarian options for food made my wife's mouth water. She ordered the Red Lentil and Cauliflower soup and slurped it down within seconds, and enjoyed a Hot Coco to go. Their price point is just on par with other juice bars and places that sell Cold Pressed, except I was blown away how delicious the blend I had was. I would come back again, and again
Even though they are not officially open they are selling juice, some salads in jars, coconuts, and bowls. I've gone to the shop twice and both times the owner(s) were very nice and let me sample some of the juices available .
Grass Roots (all organic) is my current favorite raw juice they offer. I'm drinking for health and taste. I liked all of them I tried. I love raw juice and I'm excited for some healthy options in Coolidge Corner.
They have been slow to open but that's business and I'm not holding it against them. The labels are hard to read on the bottles and I have great vision (I hope the considered this). The interior is what I expected –modern rustic. They will officially open June 22nd (they say). Their hours will be 7am-9pm. I'm looking forward to every thing once they settle in.
I thought this place only had crazily expensive juices, but then I heard that they also have good salads. So I tried it out. I got a salad that I created myself and a cup of tomato basil soup. The salad was by far the best I've had since I moved from the west coast to the Boston area a few years ago. The greens were fresh, the toppings were generous and delicious (especially the beets!), I liked the cilantro-lime dressing, and there was actually not too much dressing, yay. The soup, on the other hand, was kind of blah, definitely not salty enough. I tasted the lentil cauliflower soup as well, and it was tasty but far too salty.
The customer service was weird. First, the woman helping me seemed to alternate between being nice and irritable. Also, either she forgot to or I didn't hear her tell me that the tofu was $1.50 extra, so I was surprised by the charge at the checkout. The man at the checkout (manager or owner?) offered to take it off, which I appreciate, but he was simultaneously rudely aggressive in how he talked to me ("Do you want me to take the charge off? Hey, eye contact! I'm talking to you!"). Why ruin a nice gesture? Anyway, I will still go back and hope for a nicer encounter, since the food is fresh, yummy, and much needed in Boston!
- I was visiting my hometown this past week, and had to stop by Pure Cold Press after hearing all the buzz about it in The Globe! Had a great experience, the juices were delicious, a bit pricey but it's expected! The food was also delicious, I had a mason jar salad which was both healthy and appetizing. You can tell they still have a few kinks to work out, but what more can you expect from a place that has only been open a couple months. I will definitely be back again the next time I'm in town.
- Love the juices! Nice, large menu selection
