Are you looking for delicious and healthy eateries when travelling? Wellness Advisor Kavisha Jega has you covered. Her latest Healthy-Eating guide is for our beloved harbour city, Sydney.
Nelson Road Tuck Shop
60 Bronte Rd, Bondi Junction // @nelsonroadtuckshop
Whenever in Sydney I’m always sure to make a brunch stop at Nelson Road Tuckshop. A short stroll from the Bondi junction shopping strip, it’s the perfect place refuel before or after a shopping haul. The café produces many things in house, from the butter, smoked meats and all their bread, and pride themselves on providing wholesome fast food. The hot smoked salmon, lemony scrambled eggs, lentils, roasted brussles and pickled fennel on house made pumpernickel bread is a definite must try and so too are the delicious quinoa falafels. Yum! Eating healthily, ethically and seasonally has never been easier.
Venus Whole Foods
352 Bourke Street, Surry Hills // @venuswholefoods
The perfect place for a healthy breakfast or casual business meeting. The vegetarian salads at lunch time are the BEST!!! They serve smoothies, cold pressed juices and some raw desserts as well. Must try seasonal and wholesome food.
The Farm Wholefoods
81 Macleay Street, Potts Point // @thefarmwholefoods
This place is part bulk health food store part whole food cafe. Serving an innovative whole foods fare. Breakfast is the best time to come with an extensive breakfast menu including options for gluten free, dairy free, vegan, vegetarian and paleo dietary requirements. The smoothie bowls are the bomb as to are the chia pots. A great selection of take away options too. Don’t leave without trying a coconut milk hot chocolate either!
2 Brighton Boulevard, North Bondi // @orchardstlove
With locations in Bondi, Bronte and Paddington, Orchard Street is the best place to drop in for an organic cold pressed juice, nut milk, smoothie or raw food. The best selection of cold pressed juices and smoothies in Sydney hands down. The raw food menu is good if you’re looking for breakfast or lunch options. They also have a wide variety of raw treats, hot elixir menu and kombucha on tap.
Porch and Parlour
17/110 Ramsgate Avenue, Bondi Beach // @porchandparlour
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (only wed-sun), Porch and Parlour is a great place to spend a lazy week day or weekend brunch. The menu is brimming with plant based meal options. The green breakkie bowl or raw cosmic salad with ocean trout are two of my faves.
Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen
21 Fountain Street, Alexandria // @breadcircus
With an array of healthy breakfast and lunch options, you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice at Bread and Circus. Using organic and biodynamic produce wherever possible, the menu includes sweet and savoury breakfast options, salads, soups, sides and an extensive drinks menu (coffee, tea, cold pressed juices and smoothies). The salads are to die for and the sandwich boxes are the perfect healthy lunch on the go. If you can, save a little room for dessert and visit the Pana chocolate shop next door.
