At Bedlam we believe in healthy living and access to one’s innate sense of health. That’s why we decided to put a juice/smoothie bar in a bookstore. The information and awareness you feel in your own body from the foods/drinks you ingest, is just as important as the information and awareness you glean from the pages of a good book. Body and mind are one. It’s the western world that has split them. So we wanna create a little revolution and help you put them back together again.
We support local farms, use organic and/or sustainably/ethically grown produce, and are also committed to using methods that reduce our waste. See our FAQS page for more information about these terms and the green methods we employ. The purity/healthfulness of the ingredients you put into your body matters. We believe in eating/drinking the rainbow!
Our list of juices/smoothies is an evolving thing, with seasonal drinks and specials. Over time, we will be adding more to this list. So please come by and check us out in person!
