Today I took my fiancé to one of my favourite healthy cafes, Mondays Wholefoods in Kingsland. Featuring a covered courtyard overflowing with natural greenery, the cafe is warm and welcoming; the perfect spot for a relaxed lunch. We enjoyed their Mondays Benedict with organic pullet eggs, whole potato rosti, wilted greens, vegan hollandaise & parsley pistou, adding bacon & mushrooms, and their Ambrosia Waffles – buckwheat waffles with coconut ambrosia, berries, vegan meringue & toasted coconut. These were complemented by coconut milk hot chocolate & emerald (matcha) latte. Our lunch was wonderful in every way – friendly service, calm atmosphere, and of course, delicious food. Our highlight was the soft, creamy sweetness and subtle berry flavour of the ambrosia, and the earthy, wholesome flavour of the buckwheat waffles.  

A lover of natural, rustic chic spaces, I found inspiration in their natural autumn colours, bohemian style cushions, teapots & essential oils on their shelves, some luminous citrine (my favourite healing crystal), and even some floral styling wedding inspiration. If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a moment of calm, good food and nature, Mondays is the perfect place for a cosy meal.

Love,

Today I visited a lovely vegan friendly cafe in Mt Eden by the name of The Midnight Baker. For the first hour or so, I enjoyed a good book while enjoying the cafe’s famous Freedom Loaf – a wholesome seeded bread high in protein, fibre & good fats – with spiced cookie almond butter, and a warm turmeric latte. Deceived by how little the toasts looked, I found them incredibly filling & nourishing! When my friend joined me for lunch, we had the red velvet latte, an Earl Grey tea, toasted banana bread and deconstructed ‘pulled pork’ tacos.

The ‘pulled pork’ part? It actually consists of jackfruit adobo, salsa, slaw, and an amazing vegan aioli I mistook for sour cream. (It was so delicious I asked for extra aioli.) The warm, rustic decor of the cafe along with wooden furniture & greenery added to the homely atmosphere. I’m happy to have found a spot perfect for healthy & natural food, or even simple, cosy mornings with a good book and a warm latte. 

PS. My experience was made even better by the fact that the cafe was playing this song during my visit. Rest in Peace Mac Miller. ❤
