Four.Ate.Five Rating 8/10

Four Ate Five is a very popular little cafe in Surry Hills, very busy, trendy and healthy. This is my current number one breakfast/brunch/lunch spot. Four Ate Five is my favourite for multiple reasons; first of all they make great coffee. Second of all, they make amazing smoothies and juices and they also sell Kambucha. And most importantly the food is amazing! The cafe is quite busy but the waiting time isn’t too long.

My all time favourite breakfast option is the Avo on toast. Four Ate Five provides their own version of it. It’s called Heirloom tomato, avocado, goats cheese ($16), it comes with
cashew,coriander pesto and Dukkah. And it’s completely deconstructed which makes it more fun.


Baked Eggs ($18) is my winter favourite at the moment. It’s warm and spicy and absolutely delicous and feeling. It’s everything you will ever need on a cold morning. It comes with almonds, feta, moroccan tomato sauce and a toast. It’s too good! I have my own version of this dish, actually, that i often make at home for breakfast, so stay tuned, i will share it with you all soon.

The 485 ($19) is another good option, it seems like this is their signature dish. It’s a healthy bowl filled with boiled egg, hummous, marinated feta, pilpelchuma (chilli paste)
red cabbage, israeli pickles, radish, chopped salad and comes with either pretzel or a bagel.

My lunch favourite is Pulled Pork Salad ($17), it comes with crispy noodles, spanish onion, shredded carrot & capsicum, sesame seeds,coriander & sweet soy dressing. It quite large for salad, so definitely worth the money!

As mentioned earlier, coffee is amazing and comes in different types and varieties. Freshly squeezed juices are also available and most importantly they make pretty great smoothies. I’ve tried Fight The Power Superfood smoothie ($10), it’s made with banana, soy milk, cacao, maca powder, dates, cardamom and sea salt. I love that they add sea salt to it as it gives you that awesome combination of sweet and salty, if you are fun of that then definitely add this to your order.

And you if you are into the whole Kambucha trend you absolutely must try Java’s Watermelon and Mint Kambucha, it is seriusly the best Kambucha flavour you can get! I will write a post on how to make Kambucha at home shortly, for those of you who like DIYs and i will include Watermelon flavour in it.

Organism – Rating 7/10

I am starting my first blog with my absolute favourite café – Organism. It is a hidden gem, and it took me a while to even notice it as I walked past it quite often.

Organism café is a renovated town house on Crown Street in Surry Hills. If you don’t know the area well, it is very close to Kawa café. The interior is very welcoming with a cozy homely feel, being an interior designer by trade, I always pay a lot of attentions to the surroundings and décor.

Also being a health freak, I absolutely loved the fact that Organism uses organic ingredients (hence the price), fresh produce and all the dishes appear to be healthy but absolutely delicious. Another great thing about Organism is that you can get free wifi, which makes it a perfect place for those of you working outside of office.  My usual weekend would start there, with my laptop, an espresso, a juice and an amazing meal.  It is a nice place to sit down and get some work done.My favourite dish used to be Black Pasta Salad, unfortunately I have noticed that it is no longer available 😦 . The staff is very friendly too, the lady who runs the place is super cute. Continue reading “Organism – Rating 7/10”
