Canter & Colt cafe opens in Samford
The scenic beauty of Samford is second only to the fresh organic creations on the plate and in the glass at new raw organic cafe Canter & Colt.
Exhale and give your body an epicurean hug with a nourishing repast from Samford’s new cafe Canter & Colt. Owned by brother-and-sister team Rob and Carina Mystek, the petite space takes up residence on the porch of Four Seasons Organics, which has been operated by the siblings’ parents for more than a decade. The cafe sources all of its fresh produce from the adjoining food store, pleasing palates with 100% raw smoothies, cold-pressed juices, loose-leaf teas, certified-organic fairtrade Montville Coffee and wholesome breakfast and lunch items.
Ingredients like raw maca powder, hemp seeds and spirulina give the smoothies a healthy kick, while liquid respite also comes in the form of green juices, kombucha and coconut water. Tuck into a bowl of gluten-free or raw muesli with COYO or Barambah Organics yoghurt and fresh fruit, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon and a side of agave syrup, or the heartier C&C Smash featuring your choice of gluten-free pumpkin and pepita, spelt or kamut bread, topped with avocado, lemon juice, marinated fetta, tomato and sunflower sprouts. Fresh kale salads and Byron Gourmet Pies round out the menu, while vegan cakes from Carrie on Raw offer a sweet bookend to any meal.
Canter & Colt’s sustainable approach extends beyond the food, with Rob designing the fit-out himself and building it by hand with the help of his father. Recycled Australian hardwood has been shaped into low-set benches and tables, from which customers can soak up the Main Street breeze and enjoy the scenic outlook to John Scott Park. If the sunshine proves too tempting, guests will soon be able to grab a Canter & Colt picnic box packed with food, drinks and a rug to enjoy on the grass across the road.
