I swear, sometimes I think I work in a cave and live under a rock.
Had a call today to join some friends for lunch at The Wholefood Kitchen.
“The Wholefood Kitchen. It’s been open 3 months.”
“Reaaallly?” said the tapped in, switched on, destination: here&now girl.
So I arrive and here are the girls sitting in old school floral armchairs sipping their chai in front of a fire (not a wood burning one).
At this point I would really love to show you the pretty, old school, mixed up plates that our delicious food was served upon but I was so busy tucking in to what was on those pretty, old school, mixed up plates, I forgot.
… but this kind of sums up the whole ethos that Nykki and Leah are trying to instill
in their little cafe.
Home grown …
Home made … with lots of love.
Healthy… and inspiring. And very delicious.
Now here’s the other thing. The girls are sourcing as much of their produce as they can from (nearly) right next door. And I did know about this. I’ve got the blog post to prove it.
The Bathurst Wholefood Co-op is really going from strength to strength.
We’re very lucky to have so many people in Bathurst volunteering their time
to help make it a success.
… and without sounding corny there is a real sense of love in both these shops.
It makes shopping joyful instead of soul-less supermarketing.
So my friends, you have no excuses now. You too, can be part of the wholefood
experience happening in the arcade next to (hand over mouth mumbling) Coles.
The Bathurst Wholefood Kitchen is open Thursday and Fridays from 9-3 and Saturdays from 9-2. The Co-op is open the same days, similar times and they’ve just added Wednesday openings too. Their Facebook page is not a bad way to keep in touch with what’s happening.
I have to get out more. This is embarassing.
