The 508 University Ave. cafe opened on Saturday, June 30, in a large space on the ground floor of a brand-new building at the corner of Cowper Street and University Avenue. It's the first of three outposts the Danish chain has announced for Palo Alto.

On the menu are fruit and vegetable juices, which start at $7 (for a small, 12 ounces) and go up to $10 (for the large, 10-ounce "signature" juices). Juices include the "Prince of Green" with lemon, pineapple and cucumber; the "Pick Me Up" with raspberry, banana and apple; and the "Green Shield" with spinach, kale, broccoli, cucumber and apple.
There are also smoothies ($7 for a small and $8.70 for a large), sandwiches ($8.90) and coffee.

The modern space has ample seating and conveniently placed electrical outlets to enable using laptops there, which several people already were on Monday afternoon.
Joe & The Juice is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
The company is opening two more locations, one just blocks away on 240 Hamilton Ave. and another at Stanford Shopping Center.
