We’re big fans of eating healthily and cutting down on body-hating nasties, but let’s be honest, sometimes these so called ‘yummy clean eats’ can be, well, boring and a little bit repetitive. And with the rise of clean eating, organic and healthy cafes in Melbourne, the search for something nutritious, and lip-smackingly delicious, not to mention exciting, is becoming trickier.
With some of the best cafes in Melbourne hopping aboard the ‘healthy eating’ train, these days it takes more than just your average barista to appeal to foodie loving patrons out there!
This is where Street Organics comes in. The cosy space, located on High Street in Malvern, has long been considered one of the best healthy cafes in Melbourne to treat yourself to super tasty eats and treats that not only make you feel good, but also use the best of the best organic produce.
The menu at Street Organics is like heaven for Melbourne’s clean eating crew. Boring salads and bland juices? Fughhedaboutit, Listers! The food here is more along the lines of super smoothies, zingy cold-pressed juices, brekkie bowls and savoury eats.
Start your morning off (or scoff for a midday meal like we did!) with one of Street Organics famous breakfast bowls—these babies have to be seen to be believed! We went coco-loco with the Coconut Bowl, a fresh young coconut filled with coconut meat, banana, chia seeds, goji berries and almond meal, then opted for the Acai Bowl for ‘second lunch’ (don’t judge!)—an amazing combo of acai, frozen banana, berries, seeds and nuts. The (organic) crème de la crème, though, is the Paleo Brekkie Bowl—a #foodporn worthy confection featuring layers of banana, coconut yogurt, blueberries, chia seeds and nuts.
Fans of the liquid breakfast or lunch have options aplenty too! Want to go green? Then the kale, spinach and chlorella based Green Smoothie, or the FODMAP friendly Stinging Nettle blend, will be right up your alley. Perhaps something sweeter? The Cacao Coconut Shake or Banana Chai Smoothie will hit the spot.
On the savoury side, Street Organics dish up a variety of scrummy light meals that’ll totally cause a case of food #FOMO. From toasted sandwiches and housemade wraps on either rye or nori, to perfectly spiced pulled pork (our FAVE!) and smashed avo, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Lactose-intolerant caffeine fiends are also in for a treat at this healthy Melbourne cafe; Street Organics use freshly made nut milks (take your pick from almond, coconut or cashew) to create some of the best coffee in town! Perfect come 3pm or on the weekends when you need a pick-me-up. (Hot tip: add a bliss ball or raw cheesecake slice…you won’t regret it!)
That’s not all Street Organics offers, though. On top of being one of the best healthy cafes in Melbourne for tasty organic eats, Street Organics is also a must-visit if you’re looking to stock up on fresh produce and pantry staples. It’s all about local love here; the fruit and veggies are sourced from local organic farmers markets, so too are the nuts and legumes. Cold-pressed juices, kombucha, jun and smoothies are made fresh each morning and bottled…even the organic chocolate is made specifically for Street Organics by Ministry of Chocolate, which is located right across the road.
If you can’t get in to Street Organics to do your weekly shop, don’t fret! They also have an online store, making it a cinch to stock up on all your kitchen needs. Simply browse the hundreds of products online, add to cart, and Street Organics will deliver it right to your door. The best organic food in Melbourne plus home delivery; if that’s not convenience, then we don’t know what is!
Whether you’re right into the clean living lifestyle, or just want to dig into some healthy, delicious and oh-so-purdy food, Street Organics in Malvern is a must-visit. This healthy Melbourne café is a fave of the clean eating crowd and, in our humble and hungry opinion, is totally worth crossing town for!
