Carrot & Kale: Juice, Smoothies and Your Health


Carrot & Kale and owner Megan Bartelt were featured in the latest edition of the Oshkosh Independent Magazine.  The health-focused juice and smoothie cafe, located at 110 Algoma Blvd, officially opened this week.  Current hours are 7am – 3pm. 

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Megan Bartelt is on a mission to improve the health and well-being of folks who live and work Oshkosh. And green juice is part of that mission.

Bartelt and her team are opening Carrot & Kale Organic Juice Café this July in the heart of downtown Oshkosh. The café will be across the hall from Bartelt’s newly located acupuncture and wellness center, together creating the Bartelt Holistic Health Center.

The café will center on organic, locally sourced ingredients with fresh, made-to-order juices, smoothies, and smoothie bowls (eaten almost like frozen yogurt with toppings such as coconut shavings, chia seeds, and fruit). Future plans include light breakfast and lunch options, as well as healthy snacks.

All offerings will be free from preservatives or added sugar, and the menu is planned to evolve with the seasons to capture the utmost freshness and health benefits.

“The community is ready to support…”
