Oh, the locals in Rozelle aren’t going to be pleased. We’re lifting the lid on their newest yoga slash wholefoods café.
Egg of the Universe is a wellness and wholefoods café concept that’s well, done exceptionally well. Here’s why:
It’s more active than your usual café visit. At Egg of the Universe you’re welcome to tag on a Power Vinyasa class in the BodyMindLife Yoga studio upstairs (we love pre-ordering a fresh coconut water and mango smoothie so it’s ready post class).
In the rear courtyard there’s a beautiful, big Chinese Elm tree to sit under. Its calming surrounds make it ideal to breakfast, brunch or lunch here (on your own table or at the communal one), enjoy a movie night or partake in a Seasonal Feast.
The menu shouldn’t freak you out. Egg of the Universe’s wholefoods concept is about preparing food using produce that hasn’t been overly refined, processed or denatured. You can expect nutrient dense offerings where your appetite agrees less is more.
Vegans, omnivores, and those with gluten free or dairy free needs are looked after. Whatever your preference, you’ll love the Perfect Circle Salad, a selection of raw and fermented salads, cashew cream activated nut pesto, tahini dip and raw seed crackers. B.L.A.T comes served as an open sandwich filled with Feather & Bone Melanda Park Free-Range Bacon, avocado, heirloom tomato, wild leaves and aioli on Bread & Butter Project sourdough. The melt in your mouth Burrawong pasture-raised organic chicken pate is difficult to resist, as is the slow cooked organic chicken broth with shitake mushroom and unpasteurised miso.
Here it’s about being a part of a community. The premises are a pick-up point for Food Connect and Feather & Bone, cooking classes and whole foods workshops are coming soon. There’s a wellness centre in the pipeline too.
Harry Lancaster and his co-owners share a palpable love affair with seasonal produce sourced from high quality providers. Their menu is influenced by nutritional science and nurtured by traditional wisdom.
The genius stroke; when food tastes this good, you’re not really thinking about whether it’s good for you.
