Mr. Piña Fruit And Vegetables
Mr. Piña is part of a chain of fruit stores (others are Mr. Berry, Mr. Melon, Mr. Coco, and Mr. Kiwi) in Brooklyn that would probably serve juice for twice the price if it were in the West Village. The locations all look like your basic no-frills bodega, but with aisles of fresh and inexpensive fruit instead of overpriced laundry detergent. You pay with the rest of the shoppers at the register, and then bring your receipt over to the juice bar. Also like your bodega, there are regulars who know exactly what they want and might push you aside if you take too long to order (if you need inspiration, the menu has suggestions for just about every ailment from allergies to hemorrhoids). Last time we were there, our juice barista made too much and instructed us to chug until she could fit it all in our cup. We’re OK with any place that determined to give us our money’s worth.
