Melbourne is an awesome city with tons of nutritious food options to satisfy your inner health nut. Breakfast being the most important meal of the day, we wanted to recommend a few of our favourite city spots. For those who love to brunch, give these menu options a try at our favourite cafes:
Located in Elwood, Combi is a hub for health foodies and coffee lovers galore. A small cafe with a top notch food menu, we recommend these items to try.
Shine On Smoothie
The perfect combination of sweet and green, try this delicious smoothie that’s full of nutrients. Packed with banana, mango, chia seeds, passionfruit, spinach, mesquite, vegan protein powder, probiotic powder and housemade almond milk - you’ll get your health fix and your taste buds will be happy too!
Best acai bowl in town, hands down. It’s made in the food processor to ensure perfect texture, and is decorated with edible flowers, and topped with yummy ingredients like caramelised buckinis. Perfect for a morning pick-me-up, it’s delicious and presented beautifully.
Located in South Melbourne, this restaurant is both parts elegant and sleek and has a wide variety of items on their menu. For meat-eaters and veggies, there are options for everyone.
Soaked muesli with australian grains, house-made yoghurt, seasonal fruits & flowers
Equal parts simple, light and nourishing, this meal is a great way to start the day. Protein in the morning is important for sustained energy, so the grains are key. We love the house-made yoghurt and decorative flowers, too.
Tataki ocean trout with a raw kale & pickled vegetable salad, seaweed, nuts & poached eggs
This meal offers a healthy dose of protein-packed trout and poached eggs. Sea vegetables are nutrient dense and full of important minerals that our bodies may be lacking. A healthy and savory option.
Situated among the bustle of trendy Northcote, with all-day breakfast and cold-drip coffee for those hot summer days, Barry cafe has an assortment of awesome items on their menu.
Crunchy peanut butter, heirloom tomatoes, salt and pepper peanuts on toast
The perfect pick if you're feeling adventurous. A spin on the usual toast-for-breakfast option, it will surely satisfy your savory and nutty cravings.
Raw broccolini, kale, avocado, black pearl barley, chilli, basil, activated almonds, coriander, pepitas, soft boiled egg
For a hearty breakfast that will leave you feeling nourished, try this green and protein breakfast option. Almonds and eggs for protein, greens for your healthy dose of superfoods, chilli and basil for extra flavour - it’s jam-packed and yum!
Just off of Nepean highway, it’s a little ways out of town but worth the scenic ocean view drive. They are famous for their superfood smoothies and acai bowls and a great option if you want a day trip out of the city.
Bowl with the lot
The title speaks for itself, so if you’re looking for a healthy dose of decadence, you’ve found it. Blended with banana and coconut water, sprinkled with caramelised buckinis, strawberries, coconut chips, chocolate goji berries and topped with a bliss ball. Yum!
Mint + Lime popsicle
For the perfect summer refresher and a light treat post-brekky, try one of their popsicles. Mint and lime is our option to keep cool on a hot summer’s day.
