Juice bars.  What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear those two words?  Before Nekter, I did not have a lot of experience with juice bars so I had no idea what to expect.  I imagined a place that sold cold pressed juiced as well as freshly made juices in store.  The only fruit I assumed I would see would be apples and whatever else you can mix with veggies to make a healthy drink.  Instead, here is what I found.

When I walked in, I noticed the atmosphere was welcoming, bright and cheery. Their menu is very easy to understand.  It is separated by acai bowls, juices, and smoothies.  Based on my initial expectations, I was genuinely surprised to see smoothies and acai bowls on the list.

After looking over the menu for several minutes (everything sounded delicious and I was having such a difficult time choosing), I ordered the pitaya acai bowl.  I was hooked after the first bite.  Since that first visit, I have gone back almost every Friday as a special treat for the end of the week.  Now, I have a “usual” bowl (banana berry bowl with pitaya toppings) but I have tried several different bowls, juices, smoothies, and to go treats.  Sometimes I take a juice to go for lunch.  Everything I have tried has been delicious and there isn’t anything I have tried I would not recommend.

I love how convenient Nekter is for me and most of Plano.  It is located right off of Park and Preston, which makes it easy to run in after a barre class or before a shopping spree at Trader Joe’s.  They have a free app you can download in order to earn “fruits” and free menu items.

They also have a couple of different juice cleanses available for purchase online and in store.  I have not tried it yet, but when I do, I will post my review.

Raves:  The friendly staff, delicious food, fresh fruit, healthy choices, calorie count on menu for those that need it, organic/whole ingredients, menu variety, convenience, and all of the prepackaged juices and treats.

Hesitations: Price- however getting real/quality fruits and vegetables is expensive, so they charge what they need to.  It is just more expensive than “typical to go” breakfast/lunch.  If price is your setback, go for the acai bowl.  With all the whole toppings, you really get your money’s worth.

Overall: Go there!  Try an acai bowl then come back and try more, but beware because it may become a weekly tradition.
