200 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1Z2
Daily Press Juicery is an accessible juice bar located on Queen West. The Daily Press Juicery specializes in making fresh juices with a hydraulic press using a unique technique to create cold-pressed juices. These juices are made from a combination of fruits and vegetables that can provide a boost to your immune system or detox your body.
It is difficult to find accessible spaces on Queen Street West so I was happy to stumble upon this place when I did. The entrance has a short, but steeper slope to get in (if my calculations are correct, it is over 1-metre long = 1:6 slope), and automatic door buttons are on the inside and outside of the building. The outward swinging door has a 36-inch wide frame and has a ¼-inch lip to overcome.
Once inside, the floor is all finished concrete with no level changes. There are two bench-like tables in the juice bar that are 29-inches high, but require at least 25-inches of clearance to sit comfortably underneath them which come with removable seating. The other seating options are higher tables attached to the wall near the entrance that have a 38-inch clearance and removable bar stools.
Behind the front counter there is a gently sloped ramp with railings on each side leading up to the accessible washrooms. There are identical male and female accessible washrooms that each have the doors opening inwards, and a door frame of 35-inches wide. Aside from not having automatic flush buttons or door openers, inside it is very spacious with appropriately placed grab bars and clothing hooks. The standard toilet has a bowl height of 17-inches, and there is one grab bar located directly above the toilet parallel with the ground. The other grab bar is 30-inches above the floor on a 45-degree angle located beside the toilet. There are two toilet paper dispensers in each washroom, one is 22-inches from the ground, and another is directly above it 49-inches from the ground. The sink has 29-inches of clearance beneath it and the piping underneath is insulated to ensure people don’t burn themselves by getting too close. The soap dispenser is push-operated and free-standing, and the paper-towel dispenser is 37-inches from the ground. Both the sink and the door handles have handle levers making it easier to manipulate.
This juicery has a modern-age feel to it and the freshly-made colourful juices are beautifully showcased on the right side of the store, which you are able to sample! When I was there I tried the ‘Sunset Blvd’ which was recommended as a great morning drink after a long night (it was very good!). Aside from great tasting healthiness in a bottle, the staff I spoke too were very friendly and readily available to answer any questions about the products.
Daily Press Juicery is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am-9:00pm and 10:00am-9:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. This juicery is at the Queen West and St. Patrick Street intersection, and Osgoode subway station on Line 1 is just 2 minutes away. There is public parking at a garage on St. Patrick if you are traveling by car.
