Gilt Restaurant | Bar | Lounge 305 King Street West…
Pure Juice Bar + Kitchen opened in the office tower at the corner of King and Water streets in Kitchener in mid-October, but it’s already filling a niche with food lovers wanting healthy, quick meals.
With a high, open ceiling and sleek design, the restaurant is the brainchild of owner Ewelina Krawczyk, 37, whose family operated Nougat Bakery on Queen Street until it was sold a couple of years ago.
A Kitchener resident, she created Pure based on her love of travel, vibrant food experiences and healthy eating. She believed that downtown needed more by way of casual, made-from-scratch restaurants; so, Pure Juice Bar + Kitchen was born.
Convenience is key for customers’ busy lifestyles, says Krawczyk, and Pure adds to that a mix of raw foods, grain bowls, “Vitality Bowls,” smoothies, and juices that are freshly squeezed in their kitchen.
The menu draws on the “superfood” qualities that reputedly come from ingredients like quinoa, chia seeds, coconut oil and acai berries.
However, the Pure JBK menu is not limited to vegan or vegetarian options. “There’s something for everyone,” Krawczyk says.
Pure also supports local businesses for the produce, baked goods and dairy supplies they use and that philosophy meshes with the evolving downtown. Krawczyk says she serves a growing demographic that is serious about healthy food but also appeals to the general population.
“From young professionals to families to empty-nesters, people are looking for fresh, healthy food prepared quickly and creatively.”
