Starbucks opens new juice bar

Evolution Fresh is now open at 2201 Fillmore Street.

STARBUCKS BROUGHT its new line of juice bars to the neighborhood today when it opened an Evolution Fresh store at the corner of Fillmore and Sacramento.

Evolution Fresh peels, cracks, squeezes and presses whole fruits and vegetables to offer cold-crafted juice with nutrition, taste and color. The store also offers smoothies and menu items that combine fresh ingredients in wraps, salads and soups.

Starbucks acquired Evolution Fresh last fall and already offers its juices in grocery stores, Starbucks outlets and two free-standing stores in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. Earlier this year Starbucks also acquired La Boulange, the French bakery which got its start two blocks south at Fillmore and Pine.
