New Juice Bar Receives Approval

Laguna Beach’s Planning Commission last week approved a conditional use permit for Juice and Shakes, a fresh juice and take-out salad shop at 154 S. Coast Highway, formerly occupied by Haagen Dazs.

Owner Chris Keller, who owns two other Laguna Beach restaurants as well as a bar, aims to capitalize on the flourishing juice. And he’s a fan himself, admitting he maintains his physique by relying on juice drinks three days a week.

After three years on Diamond Street in a building remodeled as a spa, bridal salon owner Judy Morrison recently relocated her formal wear shop Paradise Creations to another Laguna Beach storefront, 1891 S. Coast Highway.

While the shop is still in transition, the doors are open and taking care of girls seeking prom dresses, said Morrison, of Laguna Niguel, who’s operated the shop formerly located in San Clemente and Mission Viejo for 30 years.

Recently, the shop, Tanya Clark hair salon and photographer Ed Krebs outfitted high school student Sharlene Zarrabi for an academic scholarship competition.

“When the need arises, we try to help people out,” said Morrison, who choose her pursuit because “you make people happy.”
