Three little words guide the philosophy of Source Juicery: happy, healthy and whole. Michelle Motley, Lisa Hudson and chef Chrissy Stevens opened the small Edwardsville, Illinois, shop in March, determined to make it easy to eat healthy in a hurry.

The café is simple and sleek with a black-and-white color palette – a stark contrast to the bright and bold lineup of raw cold-pressed juices and all-natural smoothies behind the bar. The most popular juice, Sweet Green, features spinach, cucumber, pear, pineapple and lime. For something a bit more filling, choose from smoothies including Peaches ‘n Cream and Early Bird, which provides an energy jolt from a shot of cold-brew coffee from nearby Goshen Coffee Co.

A small food menu focuses on nourishing, clean dishes, including zucchini noodles with romesco; a quinoa bowl with kale, seasonal roasted vegetables, pepitas and curried sweet potatoes; nearby Cleveland-Heath’s much-loved kale salad; as well as a kids’ menu of juices and snacks. Power bites have already proved to be the shop’s most popular snack, available in flavors like chocolate-chia and Thai-spiced peanut.
