Welcome to Greenleaf Organics. This healthy and stylish cafe started as a smoothie delivery business, but given its popularity and success, it has evolved into a sleek eatery with an incredible organic menu. Of course, this includes a wide range of their delicious smoothies.
Although it was relatively quiet when we visited, we could appreciate that the cafe has the makings for a great atmosphere, with good flow and the unique addition of an outdoor patio.
In regard to our lunch, we started off with smoothies and given there are around 24 to choose from, it was tricky picking just a couple! Claudia tried the “Source” made with coconut water, dried mango, mesquite, cardamom, chia seed and ginger, while Laura had the “Jade” green smoothie with almond milk, kale, banana, cashews, spirulina, cacao nibs, vanilla, Himalayan salt, mint, lemon and maca.
Following this, out came our orders of the:
- Triple berry acai bowl, with acai, maqui and blackcurrents with sweet, organic banana and topped with crunching cacao grain free granola ($12);
- Hola Mexican bowl, with spiced black beans, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and chipotle mayo with chicken ($18);
- Falafel wrap, toasted with beetroot, carrot, avocado, goats feta, sprouts, mint and sumac dressing ($10); and
- Ginger Ninja slice ($7.50).
Our meals used fresh ingredients, were filling and well presented.
Claudia has been back multiple times since (yes, it was that good!) and has ordered the cold pressed coffee with creamy coconut milk, sweetened with a dash of maple syrup. This has become a favourite for her and she would recommend giving it a try.
We all agreed this café is a great option for ladies who have hungry man friends (or are themselves just hungry ladies), as they offer light options, along with heartier ones, so everyone is kept satisfied!
Highly recommend checking it out.
