Yaygit juice and smoothie bar opening in Ballard

A new juice and smoothie bar called Yaygit is opening in June at 5309 22nd Ave NW.

Yaygit is opening in the former Locust Cider location, which closed in November after five years in Ballard.

Yaygit (pronounced yag-it) is an acronym for “You And Your Gastrointestinal Tract.” The juice bar’s emphasis is on gut health, and will serve cold-pressed juices, smoothies, nut butters, salads, and coffee. The cafe will be 100% plant-based and will offer gluten-free options.

When it opens next month, the hours at Yaygit will be Tuesday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
