tasty bits of heaven

Love their acai bowls. Don't expect the tradition acai bowl here. They have nice flair to them like peanut butter or kale and they work great! Big fan!

Pros: tasty, healthy

Cons: loud music, slowish

Best green smoothie in the world!

We shared the Lush Life and it was AMAZING! We have green smoothies a lot and this was the best I had ever had.

Shame the place isn't all vegan! They have maple and agave so should just get rid of the honey which is in a lot of drinks.

Pros: Amazing green smoothie

Cons: Not all vegan

Excellent green juice

I was getting cravings for a decent green juice today and head down to Kure Juice Bar for a fix. I went for the Portland Pharmacy one, really nice and freshly made. The middle size worked out about 8 bucks, which is a bit pricey for my liking, but the vegs are organic too, so what can you expect! Easy location in Downtown, super convenient.

Raw haven

This place is fabulous if you are stuck in downtown Portland craving raw juices, smoothies and foods. Most of the veg outlets of popular veg lore are in SE and other more hip places in Portland, so, although it is delicious and lovely, it's not a "go-to" place for veg*ns. If interested in Kure, it's likely you'll likely be in the Hawthorne area.

As far as the food offerings go, yes, it's not a cornucopia… except if you are eating raw and vegan and gluten free, then you may greatly appreciate what they have here. They have acai bowls and oatmeal bowls, which seemed very popular. The few (2) benches for eating were filled with people devouring these bowls. There are also a very respectable selection of raw vegan gluten free foods like collard wraps, crackers, and bar foods based on pureed dried fruits with nuts/ coconut/ dates and the like. At the register, there are gluten free baked vegan items like a tasty pumpkin bar or banana coconut bar for a few bucks.

The juices are freshly made and also pre-made. The smoothies can be veganized, easily. I like the add-ons here like almond butter, agave, greens, coconut yogurt, ginger and fruit. The smoothies are not all vegan and not all raw, but the juices are, so be happy with that. It's all gluten free, though. Great ingredients for those interested in maca root, ginseng, acai, cacao nibs, chia and goji berry- many of the most popular healthful additions to our diets. Some more processed add-ins like protein powder, algae, amino acid and superfood blend.

For Portland, it's pricy, yes. For others not from Portland, this place is very affordable considering the high quality.

This place is tasty and makes me happy in a downtown that can be less veg friendly than the rest of Portland. Thanks, Kure!

Pros: Raw foods galore, Plenty of gluten free, Super fresh

Cons: No tables for seating, Not all vegan, Not all raw

Mostly liquids..

This is mainly a juice and smoothie outlet but they have some cooked oatmeal. I had a delicious acai bowl for breakfast and really enjoyed my (hot) matcha latte. I also picked up a raw BLT from Pixie Retreat, which was fabulous. They had other takeaway treats from elsewhere, as well.

Pros: good music

Cons: limited seating
