You’re running late - but not so late that you want to skip breakfast altogether. Do the drive-thru at Jucivana, a little shack the color of a carrot that should be your go-to for three reasons. One, the juices are all delicious, whether you go for something green or something chocolatey. Two, they’re very substantial. And three, most of them are under $6. If pastries and espresso are more your style, you can get those here, too.
