I feel like I’m living in the hub of the booming health world. With so many up and coming healthy places – cafés, restaurants, holistic treatments and fitness options – we are spoilt for choice here in Sydney! These are my personal favourite healthy spots, I hope you enjoy – if you call yourself a healthy foodie, these are the places you must visit!
Porch & Parlour, Bondi: Divine for healthy breakfast bowls, sautéed greens, dukkah eggs and delicious sprouted toast. There’s no better place to enjoy an almond milk latte overlooking beautiful Bondi Beach.
Bread & Circus, Alexandria: Amazing wholefood salads that change every day, using the freshest seasonal ingredients. I also love their vibrant and healthy breakfast options – generous fruit platters and grain-free banana pancakes.
Lox, Stock & Barrel, Bondi: This is a local favourite of mine – great for an easy lunch with a buzzing atmosphere! The roast pumpkin salad with quinoa and a miso-sesame dressing is my go-to. I love their healthy options – they really cater to a healthy diet and open for dinner too (order the Turkish-style eggplant with quinoa and mixed nuts – you will not be disappointed!)
Bondi Wholefoods, North Bondi: Another Eastern Suburb gem. I adore their breakfasts – especially their paleo bread with eggs, sautéed kale and avocado. Their lunch salads are a great takeaway option too.
Sadhana’s Kitchen, Enmore: For any vegetarians or vegans out there – you must visit Sadhana’s. Incredible, inventive vegan options and show-stopping Cocowhip (coconut flesh, whipped and frozen like ice-cream, served with their divine raw treats).
Acai Brothers, Bondi: Best Açai bowls in Sydney!
Sefa Kitchen, Bondi: Go here for beautiful Middle-Eastern homemade wholefoods. I love the slow roasted lamb, Brussels sprouts and pumpkin.
Little Jean, Double Bay: My pick for a special Saturday night dinner. They have a delicious produce-driven menu and source all their meat sustainably. Always consistent and great staff. My personal favourite is the salmon with cauliflower and yoghurt-tahini dressing.
Nomad, Surry Hills: Really good modern Australia cuisine with lots of healthy options – think grilled meats and generous vegetarian sides.
Billy Kwong, Potts Point; My pick for delicious, fresh Cantonese food. Great healthy options and a real focus on local and organically sourced produce.
Orchard Street, Bronte: My favourite juice bar in Sydney. Amazing raw treats too. Try their Adrenal-healing elixirs or Cashew Chai. They also have stores in Bondi and Paddington.
The Health Emporium, Bondi: A divine health food shop and takeaway food bar all in one. Their Green Goddess Smoothie is to die for!
The Shop & Wine Bar, Bondi Beach: Amazing organic wine selection.
Scoop Wholefoods, various locations: For all your bulk food needs – I love shopping here before baking. A great range of gluten-free flours, nuts, seeds, superfoods and chocolate coated almonds!
About Life, various locations: A great wholefood store on a supermarket scale. Everything in there you need for your fridge, pantry and delicious salad bar for a quick lunch!
Bondi Farmers Markets, Bondi Beach: Held every Saturday. I love to stock up on fresh produce here – organic fruits and vegetables, fresh flowers, incredible freshly baked bread and brewed chai from the Chai tent.
Dr Earth, Bondi Junction: Another great health food store with a great variety of fresh and packaged produce.
Endota Spa, various locations: A beautiful group of spas around Sydney. I love their facials and their organic range of skin care.

The Langham Day Spa, Sydney: For a luxe spa experience – spend the day in their serene underground spa sanctuary.
The Last Resort, Bondi: For my once-yearly Colonic.
Bondi to Bronte Walk, Bondi: Start in Bondi and walk along the amazing coastal track to Bronte. One of the most beautiful walks you can do in Sydney!
