Antivice Juicery
By Christine Ottoni

Your One-Stop Antidote Shop

Anti Vice Juicery isn’t your typical juice bar. Located on College, just a little west of Ossington, the juicery joined this up-and-coming neighbourhood in May of 2015. “I knew I wanted to be my own boss," says owner Joseph Galiano. “And I had this gut feeling about opening a juice bar. So I decided to go for it.”

Carving out a space for community, kindness and health, Anti Vice is Joe’s solution for our modern vices. “When I was first opening," says Joe, "I tried to surround myself with goodness." And those good vibes are palpable at Anti Vice, which offers a laid back, warm space. The shop channels a zen, relaxed kind of energy, and has become a place for regulars and neighbours to drop in and hang out. Equipped with WiFi and seating space, Anti Vice feels like a community café.

Cheers to Your Health

Anti Vice’s juices are made fresh to order. The menu rotates seasonally and uses local ingredients wherever possible. Joe and his team are on site to consult with customers, and are eager to share their health and wellness knowledge.

The Immunity with apple, pineapple, grapefruit, Echinacea and Anti Vice’s chaga mushroom tea (brewed in-house) is one of the most popular on the menu. Looking to get your greens in? Try the Green Giant, a refreshing blend of cucumber, celery, kale, spinach, lemon and chlorophyll. Guests also have the option of customizing their own juice – just start with a base and add fresh fruits, roots and vegetables. Anti Vice also carries a range of local snacks and drinks, including Vams Culture Kombucha, Flow Water and Simply Bars.

“We try to help wherever we can,” says Joe, whose interests lie in eastern medicine and alternative health therapies. As a result, Anti Vice offers a few truly unique products for boosting immunity and addressing particular systemic issues. Take, for example, the Chaga Mushroom Tea, which is earning a citywide reputation for its range of health-related benefits. Chaga mushrooms are high in antioxidants and nutrients, and are known to boost immunity and improve digestion. Anti Vice also offers two unique Tinctures – Skin Glow and Root Down – which are liquid extracts made from herbs to assist with particular systemic problems in the skin and blood respectively.

Anti-Vice provides a variety of fresh juices.
Offering one of the most affordable cleanses in town, Anti Vice offers juices in 16- and 32-ounce glass bottles.

If you’re looking for a timeout from hectic city life, drop by Anti Vice for juice and a warm welcome. Joe’s number one mandate is to stay accessible, and this spot has really cultivated a unique sense of community on College at Ossington. “I wanted to create something that would stand on its own,” Joe explains, adding that he wanted his juice bar to be different. “The goal was to have a price point that was accessible and to make sure people feel comfortable coming in,” explains Joe. “We treat our customers like friends.”
