Sadhana Kitchen Bondi
Sadhana Kitchen, an organic-wholefoods and raw-food cafe, has expanded slowly. It opened in 2012 in a shared space in a Newtown yoga studio, then moved to Enmore. Bondi followed a couple of years later.
It took two years to find the ideal beachside spot - a former Thai restaurant. Founder Maz Valcorza has kept the space’s existing exposed brick. Every light hangs from the end of a copper pipe, as though the plumbing’s been pulled straight out from the walls.
The menu features plant-based, ethically sourced fare, sprinkled with the latest “superfoods” (activated grains, nuts and seeds). Everything is prepared at a temperatures below 40 degrees Celsius to make sure that there is the least amount of intervention when preparing ingredients. But Valcorza still prioritises food that's hearty, familiar and indulgent.
Choose from a selection of nutrient-dense smoothies such as The Warrior with berries, banana, chia seeds and sprouted-brown-rice powder. There are also breakfast bowls of cacao nibs and a Cheezeburger, a vegetarian patty topped with homemade vegan cheddar.
