It takes more than just a wholesome meal to feel good, and Holy Bowly has the extras nailed. There’s fresh greenery, an abundance of natural light, and the activewear-clad clientele might well motivate you to exercise. Unlike many “superfood” bars, there’s plenty of seating inside and out, so you can kick back with the morning paper and soak up the rays.
All-day breakfast includes the signature sprouted “holy bread”, which takes two days to prepare, topped with smashed avo, Meredith goats cheese and dukkah. Lunch offers a vegan lentil burger in a gluten-free bun with housemade tomato relish, avocado, tomato and garlic cashew sauce. Then there are smoothie bowls topped with all manner of colourful decorations.
The drinks selection reflects current health fads. There’s Bulletproof coffee made with organic butter and MCT oil, and the Feel Good Choc smoothie with raw cacao, cacao nibs, mesquite, banana, raw honey and coconut ice-cream. A pantry provides healthy essentials, and a takeaway fridge houses cold-pressed juices and raw cakes.
Holy Bowly is also host to a range of nighttime events, such as meditation and vegetarian dinners, advertised via its Instagram page.
