For all the nature lovers and healthy foodies you’ll be happy to hear that Observatory now has a new eatery and to add to that it’s also vegan. Nourish’d Café & Juicery has already proven to be incredibly popular with their cute beach hut style café just off Kloof Street. This sister branch is larger and more spacious and is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood. You’ll find it just across the way from the iconic Bijou – look out for the palm fronds and you can’t miss it.
So what’s on the menu? You can expect cold-pressed juices, decadent smoothies, smoothie bowls, gourmet sandwiches, rainbow bowls and more. We tried two of their rainbow bowls which were incredibly delicious, fresh and fulfilling. With names like Moonshine Bowl and Glittershine Bowl, well they already put a twinkle in your eye!
The decor is simple and unfussy with copper and gold accents and plenty of lush plant life to add a focal point. I’m definitely looking forward to a second visit and to try more of their dishes.
