There is no doubting how beautiful Sydney’s Northern Beaches are. We’ve rounded up three healthy cafes in Manly and Freshwater that are absolute must visits, whether you live north side or not!
Tuck into a fresh feast in Freshwater at Albert & Moore. This cosy corner eatery features rustic timber and white painted brick interiors and with their menu is just as impressive. Think superfood smoothies and paleo friendly meals. Some of our picks include the Post Workout smoothie, which contains coconut water, berries, banana and protein powder and the smashed avocado with poached eggs, ricotta and basil oil on fresh cut sourdough. Yum! So enjoy a north side run (or swim if you’re happy to brave the chilly water) and finish it off with a super satisfying superfood feast!
Think sensational coffee and an eclectic menu of fresh, health-conscious meals and you’ll have a rough idea of what you’re in for at Showbox. Forgoing the typical beachy looking fit out and opting for a more raw and urban decor, this cafe oozes coolness. In other words the perfect weekend spot to give you that real getaway feeling just a short trip from Sydney’s CBD. Sip on a cacao smoothie or fresh almond milk latte while tucking into the wild rice salad with salmon sashimi and a soft poached egg. It might sound like a strange combination of healthy foods but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
There is so much to love about this hip little health haunt, which is attached to The Shop Next Door, one of Manly’s coolest surf stores. However, order of choice would the delicious combo of Spring Wellness sprouted loaf topped with smashed avo and sunflower sprouts or a fresh daily chia seed muffins washed down with some homemade chai with fresh almond milk and honey. Yum! Just when the health foodie lover within us all thought it could not get much better, they also stock our favourite Orchard St Cleanse juices and smoothies and Citizen Cacao raw chocolate. Our go-to post Manly spot for brunch or a healthy weekend treat.
