Healthy Food for Healthy Living

This place seems to have lots of healthy options although the service did seem to struggle a bit when they got busy. This actually made me feel a little uneasy and stressed which counteracted the holistic natural ambience the store was trying to create. The tasty Chicken Wrap came out in a timely 10 minutes while the Zucchini and Haloumi Fritters and Brown Rice Tamari didn't make an appearance until about 30 minutes. The Zucchini and Haloumi Fritters came with a nice dressing but needed more to help with the pancake dryness of the fritters as the second one underneath was left with no dressing. I was expecting a more crispy type of fritter but it was more like a pancake. The well presented Brown Rice Tamari was quite nice although quite salty in taste as well. Oh, and check out the size of the glass tumblers for water — they were nearly as big as the bottle hehe :-)

PROS: Healthy ingredients, Organic produce
CONS: When busy the service seemed quite stressed and there was a long wait for food
MUST TRY: Eating healthier

Garlic and Thyme Chicken Wrap with Cous Cous and Rocket $8.50

Brown Rice Tamari with vegies topped with tempeh tofu and shoyo seeds $15.50

Zucchini and Haloumi Fritters served with minty lime yoghurt dressing $15.50 — Needed more dressing for second fritter underneath.
