New Odyssey Juice and Java is located on the same block as the bus station downtown. For more than fifteen years the New Odyssey has been a gathering place for creative people and their friends.
The current location is the fourth incarnation of the New Odyssey coffeehouse which is named after the legendary Odyssey Coffee House - brainchild of Cynthia Wooten (County Fair cofounder, City Councilor, State Representative). The Juice bar began as an offshoot of the Genesis Juice Coop and was originally located in the 5th Street Market. In the Spring of 2001 Terri Gann and Walter Hunt two of the original 'Juicers' reopened the New Odyssey in it's present location. New Odyssey regularly hosts artists and events including the occasional Top Secret Techno Dance Party.
Refreshing Smoothies, Delicious Food, Compelling Art and the world's largest free hanging neon mobile are only some of the attractions of the New Odyssey Juice Bar. Fresh Juice is produced on the premises and fresh roasted coffee from Café Mam is brewed into Espresso by artistically inclined barristas who take pride in their work.
New Odyssey serves only fresh squeezed, raw juice, squeezed from organic fruits and vegetables grown locally. Order a shot of Wheat Grass Juice and watch as Walt takes a scissors to the tray of sprouted wheatgrass and juices it right before your eyes. These fresh juices are the base for a profusion of delicious smoothies that refresh and renew.
For Vegetarian delights Terri's cooking can't be beat. Using only fresh ingredients and a cooks intuition for making the luck of the harvest work, she regularly puts together amazing daily specials that take advantage of seasonal vegetables. Her shepherds pie is not to be missed.
Additionally there are lots of delicious and nutritious sandwiches and entrees that will fill you with the energy to fuel amazing deeds. Soups that satisfy that comfort food craving and fresh baked muffins and cookies to give you that early morning kickstart.
Using only Organic, Shade-grown, Fair Trade Coffee beans New Odyssey's Baristas produce works of art in a cup. If you are looking for that magic drink to restore your SuperPowers, this may be the place to go.
