High Tide Juice Company, Westerly

Check out the surf cams. Matunuck. Misquamicut. The Ocean State hardcore ride the waves year-round, any weather. If you don’t feel like a dip in the frigid Atlantic, however,  endless summer can be found nearby at High Tide Juice Co. Decorated like a traditional surf shack, the shop’s mission statement explains that the menu and philosophy of the juicery were inspired by the surf lifestyle in Rhode Island and Hawaii. Surfboards and memorabilia adorn the shop, along with local art, rustic wood tables, and comfy lounge chairs. Overall, it’s a bright clean space, which reflects the menu, but also enlivens the back corner of a shopping plaza between downtown and the beaches. A favorite of those attending the barre and yoga classes at adjacent Barre Coast, High Tide offers fresh juices and smoothies, smoothie bowls, including the popular Acai bowl, salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Recommended: Buffalo Chickpea, with chickpea salad, cheddar, vinegar peppers, onion and greens, all in buffalo sauce. An additional house specialty is Nitro Cart’s Nitro Cold Brew, served on tap, in which iced coffee is infused with nitrogen to produce a creamy frothy beverage without the need for milk or sugar.
