Drop in here for freshly pulped bespoke juices. Ingredients are listed Play School-style on the wall in best felt pen. No fancy names, just organic shots of fruit and veg to your personal specifications. Liquid offerings as fresh as they get churned out at the counter.
Personal touches include a thermos of rip-roaring ginger tea – as much as you can drink – which are set out with the salt and pepper. Plus a musical ambience. In the window there is an electric guitar and on the left, as you enter, an upright piano. Ready for rousing Salvation Army-style singing to exhort people to take the path to foodie righteousness.
Backstage, and on view, in the kitchen, they whip up dishes of the day, with the accent firmly on produce from the vegetable patch and orchard. And not just stews and pies. One very popular staple here are the Japanese-style wraps – a meal in themselves. All this fine fayre can be consumed at table or ordered for take-away. In the spirit of back to basics customers are seated on wooden stools at designer benches. At the weekend Bob’s is a popular brunch address.
Bob the Boss has also committed his healthy recipes to man bag-sized hardbacks which are available to purchase both here and at the founding establishment, Bob’s Juice Bar at 15 rue Lucien Sampaix in the 10th. Scrumptious and healthy cookbooks – including multiple ways to turn out a muffin! (Though not the delectable “Bob” himself.)
