A Sandy Springs-based juice bar and cafe called Ju-C Bar opens a second location inside Krog Street Market in Inman Park this fall. Ju-C Bar serves fresh-pressed juices and smoothies, açai and superfood bowls, toasts, salads, and wraps and will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Ju-C Bar takes over the former Pet Works space next to Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate at Krog Street Market. The menu should be similar to the original cafe, located in the North River Shopping Center on Roswell Road. According to a market representative, it’s unclear if the stall includes seating. A site plan has yet to be presented.
“I realized there were not as many healthy restaurant options around Atlanta so to avoid eating something unhealthy or full of sugar, I decided to come up with my own recipes,” owner Mo Martin says in a press release. “What makes us different? We make everything fresh as you order with no added preservatives or sugar, and we do not add any ice to our smoothies.”
Recess, a fast-casual health food stall from the Castellucci Hospitality Group, also resides at the market beside the group’s tapas restaurant, Bar Mercado. That stall features vegetable-heavy small plates, along with grain bowls, vegan sandwiches, dtox juices, tonics, and smoothies.
Krog Street Market began reopening for dine-in service at its stalls and restaurants last month, after shifting to takeout only in March due to the ongoing health crisis. To keep capacity levels down inside the food hall, additional seating has been added outside and seating at communal tables inside the market is limited. Masks are also now required when not eating or drinking.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance bottoms signed an executive order earlier in July requiring masks to be worn inside commercial businesses (like restaurants and grocery stores,) other buildings and spaces open to the public within the city limits, and outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.
