Paleo Café, with their signature orange chairs, opened recently at 310 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction and is a welcome addition to a block that is fast becoming a gourmet hub.
“Eat Clean Live Lean” is the motto and philosophy behind Paleo Café, which began in October 2012 in Cairns, with Jai and Marlies Hobbs’ vision of providing a convenient, healthy eating and shopping experience based on the Paleo Lifestyle. A Paleo diet incorporates mother nature, mixing a balance of lean meat, seafood, eggs, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and berries. The diet excludes dairy, grains, gluten, sugars and preservatives.
When I visited for breakfast last week, I was pleased to see so many gluten free items on their menu. As I am lactose intolerant, it’s always a problem dining out, but Paleo’s menu had plenty of choices for me. I began with a wonderful Revitalise Smoothie, made from berries and coconut milk while my partner tried the Immune Boost Juice. I then tried the banana pancakes served with berry compote and whipped coconut cream, really delicious, I can certainly recommend these. My partner also loved the Salsa Verde Eggs, consisting of poached eggs, bacon, roasted tomato and toast with salsa verde and rocket. Yum. Definitely worth a return visit.
Breakfast runs from 7am to 11.30am, followed by lunch 11.30am to 3pm. The menu offers a large selection of delicious choices for both breakfast and lunch, plus there are also Specials which change regularly. Everything is available takeaway. Kids under 10 have their own special breakfast and lunch menu for $8
There is also a display of tasty treats to take home plus a selection of logo branded clothing items for sale as well as The Paleo Café’s Lifestyle & Cook Book. More: http://www.paleo-café.com.au
