Egg of the Universe
Harry Lancaster couldn’t fight the appeal to combine food and yoga. “We just couldn’t resist bringing the two together,” says the director of Egg Of The Universe in Rozelle.
The Egg Of The Universe wholefoods café occupies the sun-dappled courtyard nestled alongside the building where classes are held. Fresh from their day’s practice, dewy-faced yoga-goers stream out the back door and into the open-air seating area, a peaceful space that belies its busy roadside setting.
The menu offers the full spectrum of wholesome food. For guests in search of a cleansing meal, there’s the light organic chicken broth with seaweed and unpasteurised miso; the seasonal ‘perfect circle salad’ with cashew cheese and activated pesto is ideal for vegan diets; and the 12-hour slow-cooked, spiced biodynamic lamb stew will suit those after hearty comfort food.
The cafe’s list of suppliers shows consideration for local artisanal producers, sourcing sustainably-raised meat from Sydney’s Feather and Bone, sprouted grain bread from Purelife Bakery in northern New South Wales, cultured butter and crème fraiche from Pepe Saya, plus organic or chemical-free produce wherever possible.
