It’s truly inspiring to see someone’s passion become a tangible thing that other people can enjoy, and this is precisely the case for Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen.
Owned and run by nutritionist and healthy-food lover Jacqui, Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen is the coming together of her passion for wholesome yet delicious food, and her desire to share her food and knowledge with others.
Just from talking to the lovely Jacqui, I could sense how dedicated she is about this philosophy and it was amazing to see how she had turned this into a beautiful space full of nutritious, fresh, delicious and affordable housemade food.
The cafe itself is an inviting space full of light, recycled wooden tables + stools, and vibrant greenery catching your eye. Having taken over the space from her Greek family’s friend, the space is rich with tradition and even with its fresh + modern revamp, Miss Bliss still provides a meeting place out the back where her grandfather and his friends can drink coffee and eat biscuits together.
Completely free from refined sugar and processed ingredients, Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen caters to all, with options for gluten free, dairy free, vegetarians and vegans. The cabinet is plentiful with delicious chia pots, vibrant fresh salads (perfect for takeaway lunches), baked treats and Miss Bliss’s famous Bliss Balls.
The cafe’s breakfast menu is inspiring to say the least. Imagine House-made Vegan Granola with coconut yoghurt + milk of choice; Coconut Quinoa Porridge with seasonal fruit + chia jam; Acai Bliss Bowl; the Wellness Board including poached eggs, sauteed greens, sweet potato hummmus, sauerkraut + beetroot relish; and more. Plus delectable smoothies, cold-pressed juice and a variety of specialty teas.
This morning we delighted in trying three breakfast dishes: the Toast ‘n’ Toppnigs, 3 Egg Omelette and the Not So Nutella Bliss Bowl.
The Not So Nutella bliss bowl was visually stunning and my personal favourite. Made with acai berries, banana, cacao, coconut nectar and almond milk, the Not So Nutella was smooth, velvety and rich with chocolate flavour.
The chocolate Bliss Bowl was topped with housemade cacao granola, toasted hazelnuts and strawberry + banana slices – a dream for chocoholics and healthy foodies alike. I loved how nourishing the Bliss Bowl was, while tasting equally indulgent. The kid in me relished the idea of having Nutella for breakfast.
The 3 Egg Omelette (1 yolk, 3 egg whites) was beautifully presented and full of flavour thanks to the sage roasted mushrooms, blistered tomatoes, and sauteed kale. The light, fluffy omelette paired so well with the fresh produce and herbs, with the crusty sourdough adding a wonderful texture.
The Toast ‘n’ Toppings was the dish that particularly caught our eyes. Served atop housemade gluten free and grain free nut + seed bread, the colours of the three different toasts were just stunning. Of the four toast toppings we chose the Smashed Peas + Pomegranate Relish; Sweet Potato Hummus w/ Roasted Capsicum + Sauerkraut; and crunchy Natural Peanut Butter w/ Banana, Coconut Nectar + Goji Berries.
Although all delicious, the Sweet Potato Hummus toast was the standout for us. The hummus was creamy, perfectly seasoned and married with the sweetness of the roasted capsicum and the tanginess of the sauerkraut. The fresh nut + seed bread was wholesome and added a delightful texture to the three toast toppings.
On Jacqui’s recommendation we tried the Latte and Chai Latte made on coconut milk, and they were lovely.
It was an absolute pleasure to not only enjoy the vibrant food at Miss Bliss, but to also experience such warmth and friendliness from Jacqui and the staff. Miss Bliss Whole Foods Kitchen is a gem of a cafe and I look forward to its bright future.
