Find this super healthy smoothie and juice bar in Cape Town’s trendy Long Street.
A truly fabulous spot on the otherwise (largely) grungy Long Street strip! As a CBD worker bee it's a refreshing break from the Computer screens, aircon and fluorescent lighting to enter into such a haven of healthy habits! Would love to try the (pricey) juice cleanse some time!
I'm really quite sad and angry with myself. For OVER A YEAR I haven't known about this magical spot. I am absolutely baffled as to how I missed this place considering the amount of times I've walked up and down Long Street. But whatevs, all that truly matters is that Orchard on Long (OL) is officially a part of my life and I suggest it becomes a part of yours too because it is for reals the cat's meow.
Sneaking a little space opposite Mama Africa, Orchard on Long does absolutely err'thing right. I'm in love and I'm struggling to find words for this love. The decor is simple, clean and fresh. For a few minutes I even considered building a little tent in the corner and making it my home.
OL specialises in the healthiest juices, smoothies and (few) foods. I couldn't decide what I wanted, so after about 9 years of thinking, I went for their berry smoothie known as the Hullabaloo and a vegan wrap. My wrap had quinoa, hummus, carrots and a few other things. My lunch date went for the Cocoa Luna and a peanut butter and banana sandwich with 70% rye bread.
I don't have a single bad thing to say. The smoothies and food were purrfect! Whoever started this heavenly place can be my new best friend, and I don't mind saying it first, I love you.
The guys working behind the counter are the coolest cats! They were super friendly and did their thang with a smile on their face while rocking their snazzy denim shirts (and aprons).
There isn't much more for me to say. I am so stoked to have finally found OL and I so look forward to my next visit. Oh, and they have a juice cleanse that I'd love to try sometime. So pleeease do yourself a favour and pop in, it will leave you feeling inspired and wanting more of their healthy treats and less sweeties from the Woolies at the Engen down the road.
