“At this small veggie cafe – sitting just the right side of hippie-dom – fresh organic ingredients are excitingly combined in soups, salads and drinks.

How about a kale, peanut butter and avocado smoothie?

For breakfast there’s quinoa porridge or banana and amaranth-seed pancakes, along with French-press coffee and numerous tea blends.” – Lonely Planet
