The little side patio is backed with a country white fence and the beginnings of a garden.
Marking the 15th Los Angeles store opening of Pressed Juicery, and the new Brentwood location also features the pretty spectacular “Freeze.” A Pressed Juicery original, the popular vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free frozen soft serve treat is prepared from only the ingredients found in juices.
