The Organic Cafe | Maroochydore

The Organic Cafe in Maroochydore is a casual style cafe where you can get light and healthy meals made using organic ingredients:

We offer a great menu and a wide variety of dishes with the casual approach of counter order sit down service, take out, or grab and go. Try our delicious freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, coffees and teas. Stop by for a specialty salad, sandwich or something a little more substantial.

Not only do we strive for the freshest organic ingredients, we ensure that our suppliers have the right organic certification to provide the necessary quality and freshness. There are several certifying bodies which uphold the guarantee of the organic produce that you buy and which we serve at The Organic Café. BFA, NASAA and DEMETER are just a few that certify the produce we supply. For a farm to become certified organic is a lengthy process. It may take years to rid soil and land from harmful chemicals and pesticides and return the level of nutrients to produce healthy crops.

The Landsdowne Cafe | Hobart

Looking for an organic cafe in Hobart? The Landsdowne Cafe has a great reputation:

This tiny bolt hole of a cafe has swiftly become a local favourite and a poorly kept secret among the West Hobart latte set. One can hardly blame those loose-lipped fans for spreading the word; cafes such as this deserve all the publicity they can get. The tables are often packed with satisfied brunchers, tucking into dishes made with mostly organic, local produce, such as scrambled eggs with buttered leeks or French toast with caramelised orange and organic maple syrup.

Sandcastle Organic Cafe | Fremantle

I eat mostly organic food at home but rarely when I go out. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that the choice of organic cafes and restaurants is very limited. However, there are a few organic restaurants around and Sandcastle Organic in Fremantle is one of them.

The Sandcastle is one of only a handful of restaurants in Australia who have decided to focus on organic ingredients. We match organic beer, wine and spirit to cuisine of excellent quality and presentation. Our focus extends to organic producers worldwide, but we endeavour to support local and boutique products in Western Australia. We have undertaken this organic specialisation as a result of our commitment to the pursuit of increased quality in all that we consume, and that which we offer to our customers and friends. We hope you enjoy the food, wine and ambience of The Sandcastle.

A review of Sandcastle Organic can be found at Abstract Gourmet:

Sharon got a curry puff and I ordered some bread and olive oil. I think I subconsciously judge a place by the quality of its olive oil. Luckily they use some very nice organic stuff that was quite peppery and managed to hold its own against the balsamic vinegar.

On to the mains. I couldn’t go past the centre cut fillet of beef on oak smoked mushrooms… The decision was made and a glass of Grenache Shiraz Cabernet to go with it. The beef was excellent, although sadly, not cooked the way I asked. I asked for medium rare and it came out a most definite medium. Still tender, but scarcely pink as far as my eyes could tell in the glaring 4pm autumn sunlight. It was already late enough though, and it was still very edible, so I waived the offer to recook it, and instead was offered my drinks for free… a lovely compromise.

Overall the food was great. Rich earthy flavours and complimenting textures from each dish we tried. Definitely a place to try if you’re looking for a healthy change or a tasty distraction from the sterile masses. The owners are very friendly people too, good service is always a delight.

I haven’t been to the Sandcastle but I’ve heard a few people mention it and all have given good reviews. Feel free to leave your review by leaving a comment.

The Green Grocer | North Fitzroy

Review of the Green Grocer by Michael at Where’s The Beef:

The Green Grocer doubles as a small organic foodstore and a cafe specialising in organic breakfasts and lunches.

I went for beans and avocado to accompany, Krusty settled for just the beans and J-Files opted for mushrooms and hash-browns. All of us settled on poached eggs – with good reason. The eggs were perfectly cooked – fluffy whites gently encasing delicously gooey yolks. The beans are worthy of a mention as well – spicy and flavoursome.

Tiger Tiger Cafe | Perth

Abstract Gourmet has an excellent review of Tiger, Tiger, a Perth cafe serving delicious coffee, hot chocolate, and some organic meals.

Clare is slowly carving out a little slice of the CBD for her very own, and crafting it into the kind of place where people can feel comfortable hanging out, and perhaps find a bit of solace in this hectic (wait am I talking about Perth) city. Complete with plush booths, eclectic furniture (sourced individually), a burgeoning herb garden, and some damn fine coffee.

The coffee they are using is Fiori (more on them later), and it’s really starting to hit its strides. On a cruisey Thursday morning last week I popped in and sampled a fine short macchiato that had excellent body, as well as just the right amount of sweetness from the milk to keep my taste buds happy. Clare and roving barista Jackson are pumping out some great shots, and are producing what would be the peak expression of the Fiori blend at this point in time.

Aside from the coffee (and a superb hot chocolate with desiccated coconut in it), they also have a little kitchen, and make fresh meals daily and have a commitment to using organic produce.
