As of Tuesday, February 24, 2015
There’s a new organic juice and food bar in downtown Hood River.
Remedy Juice Café, owned by John and Julia Deters and co-founded by Tish Parmenter, specializes in organic juices and smoothies, and features daily soups, Buddha and Glory bowls, salads and hot drinks that include chai lattes and kale coffee.
“Our menu gives vegan and gluten-free individuals a choice for downtown dining,” Parmenter said.
Located at 112 Third St., the three started the new juice bar to fill the need “to have an organic café and meeting ground that provides healthful drinks and foods that nourish,” said Parmenter.
The trio is looking to “serve our community with vibrant, healthy food as well as a variety of wellness opportunities, including community cleanses, wellness workshops and an onsite nutritionist to answer any questions you may have,” said Parmenter, who leads monthly cleanses. “Investing in the health of this Gorge community that we adore is our business.”
“We’re very passionate about juicing and health,” said Julia Deters. “Our goal is to educate the community.”
The Deters moved to Hood River in August 2013 with son Tristan, 9, from Southern California. John, an entrepreneur for over 30 years, was looking to open a business and tossing around the idea of a juice bar. The idea became reality when space opened near Flow Yoga.
Being yogis and members of Flow Yoga, a juice bar near the studio was “a no brainer,” said Julia.
The café’s winter hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 541-716-4020 or visit Remedy’s Facebook page (keyword: Remedy Juice-Cafe). Their menu can be found online at remedyjuice-cafe.com.
