A locavore is someone who insists on a diet of locally-grown or -produced food – also known as the 100-mile diet. The metric conversion is 160 kilometres, which is the radius in which Locavore Cafe sources its ingredients.
Between its contemporary breakfast and lunch menus you can find supplier names proudly listed, including Crust & Co Artisan Bakers, Meat at Billy’s and Echo Valley Farms. For coffee, Marvel St Roasters from Byron Bay just sneaks into the specified radius.
Its beans are available to purchase in bulk along with all of the relevant coffee paraphernalia, from V60 filters, Chemex and the like.
The aura of the venue reflects the fresh mentality, with its stylishly pared-back fit-out. As expected, the breakfast and lunch menus change regularly to keep up with providers, but nostalgic dishes such as the corned beef fritters are consistent crowd favourites.
The contrasting drinks menu caters for both the health fanatic and the sweet tooth with both kombucha and a PB&J milkshakes available.
