At Grown, plant-based dining is their philosophy. Through a brunch and dinner menu, the team demonstrate that plant-based doesn’t equal boring meals.
They offer innovative dishes like spice chai porridge for brunch, and for dinner there’s confit artichokes, and more traditional dishes like homemade fettucine.
They also go that extra mile to ensure that the wines and beer are vegan friendly, always looking out for their diners.
85 Vulture St, West End
Miss Bliss is only concerned with one thing, wholesome food, and boy does she deliver! They serve smoothies, acai bowls, specialty drinks, and a creative menu that will entice you instantly.
You could give their mango panna cotta French toast a try, or toss-up between the herbivore or carnivore burgers. Little Miss Bliss, you have the wholesome food angle on point!
1 Ella St, Newstead
A simple view of ‘eat donuts for breakfast’ is what motivates the team at Nodo. The café has an obsession with whole-healthy-food and have gained a reputation for their baked, not fried, donuts.
The seasonal menu is original with items like popcorn prawn toast and frozen matcha yogurt. The team at Nodo ‘put the fun back into wholesome food’.
50 Burnette St, Brisbane CBD
At Felix for Goodness, they have a less direct approach compared to others. The CBD café is quite spacey and focuses on preparing delicious dishes that use fresh and nourishing ingredients, proving that there’s no need for compensating on flavour.
Their creations range from poppy-seed pikelets, to hippy bowls, and even lamb spring rolls. If you’re craving something sweet after all that wholesomeness, you can expect treats like oat and maple scones or an olive oil chocolate cake, just what you needed right?
Cnr Macquarie St and Florence St, Teneriffe
If fueling your body is a top priority when choosing on where to eat, you should definitely be considering Wilde Kitchen. All dishes are prepared with locally and organically sourced ingredients, and can cater towards gluten free and paleo diets.
Wilde Kitchen’s all day menu, which can be swapped for the vegan alternative menu instead upon request, lets diners know what categories each dish falls under, including low-carb, healthy fats, or nutrient dense. Order a serve of the savoury sweet potato waffles or the chilli crab omelette and feel your body smile from the inside.
Shop 2/39 Hercules St, Hamilton
If you know what’s good for your insides, you’ll add Pineapple Express to your café bucket list. The health conscious café serves up healthy, super fueled dishes that are extremely colourful and tasty.
The menu has a key that is applied to each dish, highlighting the benefits that each dish provides, including high protein, antioxidants, and refined sugar free.
Have a try of their Pineapple nachos or the healthy hemp fish and chips for a taste of nutritious deliciousness.
So with that summer motivation kicking in, and wanting to fuel your body with all the good stuff, you know that Brisbane has a range of eateries– all with nourishing your insides as their philosophy!
