BEST NEW BULK BIN ON THE BLOCK (2009)

Naturewell

Conveniently located two doors down from the vegan joint with a rock & roll waitstaff, and a block up from local raw favorite, Cru, Silver Lake's new juice bar, smoothie stop and whole-foods bulk bin, cinches it: Hipsters have gone health-crazy. Naturewell's pristine bulk bin is well-stocked with whole grains, dried fruits, granola, nuts and seeds, and offers a rockin' selection of loose teas, refrigerated kombuchas, superfood staples and packaged snacks, but it's really all about the juice bar. The menu features a dazzling selection of fruit and vegetable juices, along with exotic ingredients like mangosteen and açai, as well as kale, broccoli, ginger and berries. While some offerings lean toward the spendy, there are a couple steals that'll keep you going all day: Purificane, a biodegradable cup of fresh coconut meat, coconut water, wheatgrass and cane juice, detoxes your system and fills you up fast. Eastside yerba-mate addicts may flood the aisle waiting for their fix of freshly brewed life juice, but try a yerba-mate smoothie: blended with coconut meat, coco water and agave, it's like a cosmic orgasm in your mouth, only better and cheaper. Plus, they serve homemade vegan bakery goods, wash all produce in clustered alkali water and play Radiohead. How can you not heart Naturewell? 3824 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. (323) 664-5894.
