This little cafe came highly recommended by my new bf. It's a bit of a hidden gem, tucked in between some other cafes and shops on the busy Nobby's Beach strip. Everything on the menu's pretty healthy, there's a huge fresh juice and smoothie menu plus plenty of gluten free meal options.
I ordered the Bali omelette, which is an omelette with a kick of chilli, coriander, ginger and garlic, served with fresh spinach, gluten free toast, slices of papaya sprinkled with desiccated coconut and a special dipping sauce. The flavours in this meal remind me of holidays spent in Thailand. This is definitely my kinda food...no boring ham and cheese omelettes for me!
My bf ordered the Acai breakfast bowl. Pronounced aa-sigh-yee, these purple berries are a superfood from the Amazon in Brazil. The acai berry pulp is served with gluten free granola and fruit, topped with a sprinkling of coconut. It's quite refreshing and tasty, so much better than normal muesli fruit bowls, which I find way too dry and avoid like the plague. Plus the fact that they are super healthy of course, means they score a big tick from me.
And to wash it all down...a fresh carrot juice smoothie! So if you care about what you put into your body, you'll want to become a regular at the Smoothie Shack.
Don't forget to check out their lunch menu too for a variety of yummy quinoa dishes...yes quinoa! And finally, my recommendation to the Smoothie Shack would be to please stay open in the evenings too.
