Fresheta is a small juice bar at the top of Chithra Lane. They serve up some refreshing, tasty juices which really hit the spot on a scorching day.
We came across Fresheta by happenstance after having a hearty meal and some of the worst wine ever at Randoli Sports Club. It's a good thing it was just around the corner since it was slap bang in the middle of a warm day and we really needed to get the taste of that wine out of our mouths. Walking into Fresheta you get greeted by the aroma of fresh fruits which is just such a nice feeling.
Besides juices, Fresheta also sells fresh fruits, fruits baskets and fruits salads. One thing we can vouch for is the freshness of the fruits, and they've got a pretty good selection as well.
The pineapple juice (Rs. 180) was excellent. They do add a bit of sugar but honestly this would have been fine with no sugar at all.
The papaya yoghurt juice (Rs. 180) was also good. This was more along the lines of a smoothie with a thick and creamy consistency while still being refreshing.
The juice bar itself is actually a pretty tiny place, but not the worst place to sit and have a quick juice since the space is air conditioned.
The service is fast and since they make the drinks in front of you, you can ask them to customize it by adding other fruits.
Think of Fresheta as a smaller version of Roots. If you're looking to cool down on a hot day, their juices are a pretty good bet.
