DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
It's the mecca of everything organic. Food store and cafe to devotees of all things fresh and wholesome, the green grocer does organic like nobody else.

Seasonal vegetables and fruit – fresh and ripe, the way they should be - line the shelves, artisan breads arrive daily in every shape and size. There are organic meats, cheeses and ice-creams as well as wines and beers. Take-home meals are sold under the name, Slow food fast. Just as we like it! Enrol in the cooking school and be taught by Tanya Connellan (chef) the exotic dishes of a North African banquet or the secret of transforming lentils into elegant pulses.

At the back of the store is the cafe. Here you dine among the produce. For breakfast, you can't go past the field mushrooms poached in red wine on polenta or the fruit compote of seasonal fruits spiced with cinnamon and honey. The autumn roast vege salad is perfect for lunch as are the pies and pasties baked by the grocer. Organic wines can be ordered by the glass. Or for something different, try one of the bio-dynamic beers. Tea lovers will be well satisfied with a choice of 18 teas. Try the desert flower and watch its petals unfold.
