Organic juice bar, eatery opens in Sunnyside

Green Leafs Juice Bar at 41-51 49th Street

Aug. 28, 2017 By Nathaly Pesantez

A new juice bar and eatery located on the border of Woodside and Sunnyside has opened.

Green Leafs Juice Bar, located at 41-51 49th Street, officially opened two weeks ago, and primarily serves a variety of organic, natural juices and smoothies. Other items on the menu include coffee, cappuccino, pastries, and a varied selection of paninis.

The juice bar is operated by Nube Panora, a local Woodsider, and her partner Armando Payamps. Panora said the inspiration behind the locale came after noticing the amount of runners and joggers in the area, and the minimal number of places for healthy, replenishing options after exercise.

Panora, a runner herself, prepares smoothies and juices directly in front of patrons, who also have a “create-your-own” juice or smoothie option. Ingredients to choose from include a variety of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and add-ons like chia seeds and hemp seeds. No sugar or water is added to the mix.

Prices for the drinks are based on fluid ounces, with 16 oz. drinks priced at $5.50 and 20 oz. drinks at $6.50.

The juice bar also has two floors, with a seating area upstairs designed so people can lounge, use their computers, and more. Free Wi-Fi is also available at the locale.

In addition to the juice bar, Panora says that a salad bar should be coming within two to three weeks. When the weather gets colder, the locale will also offer organic soups.

A happy hour will take place on Fridays starting Sept.1, where smoothies and juices will be available at reduced prices from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Panora, who quit her job as a hairdresser to open the juice bar, says the opening of her first business has been exciting and emotional.

“I want people to feel like they’re home here,” Panora said.

Juice bar, you should have waited until Neal Milano got purged from Sunnyside, he will put a Trump mask on and post labels and stickers on your store front, the likes of which say “BUILD THE WALL” and “Mexicans for TRUMP.” Neal Milano needs to be thrown in prison so the rest of us can go outside in peace and drink some of that organic juice.
