Winter is coming, and nothing is better in the cooler months than face-diving into a pile of cake. This is basic human nature; whether you are carb loading or on the paleo diet, sweet treats are the best treats. So for those who are a little more caveman in their cake choice, here is a list of the best Paleo sweets our fair Sydney has to offer.
Booza Ice Cream
This Middle Eastern ice cream, made with mastic for a unique texture, is taking Sydney by storm, luring us in with their tempting flavours like coffee and cardamom and Turkish delight. And in good news, paleo people don’t have to miss out on the deliciousness! Booza also stock a range of coconut-based ice creams that are naturally sweetened so you can get in on the fun, with vanilla bean, dark chocolate and green tea flavours to choose from.

Then the raw carrot cake is calling your name, topped with coconut yoghurt it’s delicious on so many levels.
Centrally located in Darlinghurst, Proteini is the perfect place to snag yourself a Sunday morning sweet treat without any of the refined sugar guilt. They know all about raw, paleo and vegan, and make some delicious foods catering to all the different diets. Saying no to their strawberry and cashew cream slice is near impossible and the blueberry chia kisses are a knockout.
Any Sydneysider who knows their way around the Clean Eating hashtag on Instagram, or just enjoys pretty desserts, is more than familiar with Sadhana Kitchen. This cute Enmore kitchen is churning out the best raw desserts in Sydney, going so far as to offer a raw high tea full of raw cheesecakes, chia creations and organic coffees with coconut milk.
When cheesecake becomes paleo, it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing and the Pure Wholefoods team have nailed this beauty thing with their raw berry cheesecake. If Paleo Power Balls are more your style, they have a range of different raw balls to keep you full from breakfast to lunch and be the envy of the office.
Any place that does a raw custard tart is legendary in our books, and the one made at Mint Organics is doing Cronulla proud. Mint Organics does some fantastic raw desserts that look great, taste fantastic and leave you feeling happy and guilt-free. The chocolate mint slice and raspberry slice is always a stand out too!
Egg Of The Universe
Everybody needs a little love, and after your 7th disaster Tinder date, the love you really need is a delicious Love Cup from Egg Of The Universe. Paleo nerds and general egg lovers would already be aware of this Rozelle café, but the love cup is where the party is at. Layers of chia, fruits and other tasty bits ready to be devoured from the convenience of a cup. If we could swipe right on this paleo treat, we would.
AboutLife is known for their vast range of natural and organic produce, but beyond the aisles of chia and hummus is a fantastic café offering plenty of paleo sweet treats. From chia slice to avocado and cacao mousse, there is sure to be something sweet and delicious to satisfy even the strictest paleo devotee.
