About Life Cafe – Bondi Junction, Rozelle & Cammeray, Sydney

Sustainable fish of the day

Sustainable fish of the day

I’ve been going to this cafe for a while now. It’s a place that has established a large number of ‘devotees’ – from health nuts to weekend brunchers. I love to go there after my weekend yoga class for brunch or to grab a dairy-free smoothie.

What’s good about it?

As well as the healthy menu items, it has a range of specials every day and freshly-made salads and snacks, and there are quick take-away options as well as dining-in meals. Every day it offers freshly pre-prepared things like frittatas, vegetable stacks and other items which are great on the run. It also caters for all diets. Everything on the menu is clearly marked with the diet it meets – including gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, sugar-free – so it makes it really easy for people with dietary sensitivities or specific requirements.

Menu – what’s paleo

There are so many paleo choices on this menu! My favourites include:

For breakfast

  • Coconut quinoa porridge with banana, walnuts, chia seeds and cinnamon – this one is filling! So only order if you are hungry :)
  • Egg nourishment – organic eggs scrambled with quinoa, tomatoes, kale and raw pesto – delicious and will make you feel super healthy
  • Rainbow super smoothie – with coconut water, cacao, raspberries, raw vegan protein, coconut oil, chia seeds, LSA mix (linseed, sunflower seeds, almond meal), aloe vera, maqui, acai wild gubinge, raw camu camu, raw organic afa blue green algae – you haven’t lived until you’ve tried this!!

For lunch

  • Sustainable fish of the day – always fresh and the perfect balanced meal
  • Signature kale salad (on it’s own or as a side to a meal)

About Life is in three locations which makes it very convenient for those in the Eastern Suburbs, Inner West and North Shore! I’ve only ever visited the Bondi Junction location, however they also have cafes in Rozelle (for the inner west pale eaters) and Cammeray (for North Shore). It’s open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch.

They also have a shop that sells all kinds of organic produce and natural ingredients.

    I would skip the items containing quinoa and vegan protein (??), other than that sounds good!

      Thanks for your comment. Yes I have to admit I don’t really know what’s in the ‘vegan protein’ but I assume it’s a soy-based protein powder (not really paleo). You could always order without :)
      As for quinoa, you have inspired me to write a blog post about this! I get so many questions about quinoa…what is it, is it Paleo etc etc. Personally I include it in my diet but I know there are mixed views on whether it is Paleo. Watch this space!!

  • […] energy so after my morning yoga class I grabbed a ‘Super Rainbow Smoothie’ to go from About Life Bondi. If you haven’t tried one you haven’t lived! It’s packed with goodness including […]
