Green Bees Organics is a café you know you’ll come back to after just the first visit. It’s a café where you feel comfortable staying to read your book or chat to the friendly staff while you sip on your delicious smoothie or enjoy a nutritious meal.
I had driven past Green Bees Organics a few times and wondered why I hadn’t noticed the charming green café before. That’s because this wholesome West End café is only three months old, though you honestly can’t tell — the organic, gluten free and dairy free menu is fresh & refined, the staff are easygoing, and the meals are seriously spot on.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Green Bees Organics offers health-conscious and food-intolerant folk a place where they can delight in fresh, nourishing food & drinks that are gloriously tasty.
For brunch lovers like myself, their all day breakfast menu items include Zucchini Omelettes served with Beetroot Hummus + Greens; Poached Eggs, Avocado + Baby Spinach on grain free toast; and Vegan Pancakes served with hazelnut ice cream, chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries — heaven!
Green Bees Organics also offers lunch & dinner meals such as a Lamb, Pumpkin + Cashew Open Pie; Sweet Potato Chips; and a Vegetarian Open Pie with kidney beans + pumpkin — as well as a fridge full of fresh salads, raw cakes and vegan cupcakes. For my first brunch at Green Bees Organics I ordered the Açaí Bowl as well as the Protein Punch smoothie, which was packed with banana, cacao, raw protein powder, chia seeds and vanilla. The flavour brought back fond childhood memories of drinking Milo, and I was overjoyed that I’d come across a nutritious alternative.
And because I clearly can’t help myself, I ordered a raw vegan Chocolate Slice. No regrets here, it was damn tasty.
As for the açaí bowl, it was divine — Green Bees do not mess around when it comes to açaí bowls. Not only was the açaí thick and delicious, but it was beautifully decorated with slices of banana, apple, shredded coconut, chia seeds, heart-shaped strawberries and not one but TWO layers of chocolate granola. Just as I thought I’d eaten my way through the granola on top, I found another generous layer buried beneath.
With nutritious, delicious food and a beautiful green + recycled wood decor (complete with cute succulents and plants), Green Bees Organics has quickly become one of my go-to healthy Brisbane joints.
