A few years back, the Castro had so many juice bars that you couldn't swing a dead cat without knocking over someone's smoothie. I think there used to be 4 places in a 3 block walk from my home. But now there's not a damn place that I know of that will make me up a smoothie to order, to say nothing of fresh juices. Isn't this supposed to be California?

There's a Jamba Juice by the Safeway, though.....

Isn't that actually in the Safeway.

But can't you get something at Posh Bagel or Hot Cookie?

No, it's around the side of Safeway.

And just as you should never order a bagel at any establishment that doesn't specialize in Jewish cuisine, you should never get a smoothie at a bagel shop. Posh has smoothies? What has the world come to? That place used to be a juice bar that also sold bagels!

ah thank you.

I'll have to check again when I'm out.

So where do you suggest getting a good bagel from?

There is this great place near Brooklyn College run by this guy and his son who argue all the time. Forgot the name of it, I would actually travel from Manhattan to this place for bagels every now and again.

funny how this went from a post about Smoothies ( and real fruit smoothies if you won the game) and turned into about Bagels.

Thanks for that tip. Next time I am in NYC Ill see if I can find it.

Yes, I didn't forget Jamba, but it's not really a short walk away. There used to be three juice bar/smoothie places within half a block of Castro/18th! Who wants to go all the way to Safeway just to get a smoothie? (But yes, I've done that. Sigh!)
