We’re always on the lookout for new healthy hotspots here at Sporteluxe. And we’ve stumbled upon a fantastic little gem on the Gold Coast which we think you’ll love!
Introducing Vivre a Vie, an organic bakery and cafe in Mermaid Beach. Lara Forsyth is the brains behind the venue and super passionate about healthy eating. “We like to think we are a part of a change that needed to happen,” says Lara. “It all starts locally. If we all start making small choices with what and where we choose to eat it will change the industry.”
Organic all day breakfast and lunch options are served seven days a week. There is also a fantastic range of baked goods, cold-pressed juices and coffees. Amazing house made organic sourdough is available every Saturday and Sunday. Not only is the food organic, there are also gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, vegetarian and vegan options available all day. Everything is also packaged in a manner that is completely compostable, biodegradable and made from renewable sources. Lara and her crew really are as thoughtful as they come!
The food isn’t the only beautiful thing about this venue. The garden can seat up to 50 people so diners can enjoy the stunning weather the Gold Coast has to offer, with grass underfoot and a coastal breeze in the air. “I designed the garden to compliment the casual feel of Vivre,” explains Lara. “Parents can sit back and enjoy a coffee or meal while the kids have room to play.” Sounds great to us!
