Urban Food Store
Tucked beneath The Phoenician building in the heart of bustling Surf Parade, Urban Foodstore combines cafe-style dining and fresh, healthy on-the-go eats with a curated selection of everyday shopping essentials. You can swing past for a smoothie (which are all vegan), an acai bowl or coconut soft-serve, settle in for a hearty weekend breakfast or long lunch, or a grab a house-made sandwich, a few pieces of fruit and an on-tap kombucha on your way back to the office. While you’re at it, you can get yourself a litre of almond milk for the fridge at home, some organic snacks for the cupboard, and take home a Byron Bay Pizza Co. Margherita for dinner. Dang, you’re out of toothpaste? You can get that too (and it’s all natural). On the menu you’ll find everything from French toast with vegan coconut soft-serve through to salted savoury buckwheat pancakes, which are topped with fresh mozzarella, basil oil, beetroot hommus, walnut, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, grape, radish and lime. To sip? There’s Allpress coffee pouring, kombucha and kefir on tap, organic nitro coffee, fresh juices, and plenty of coffee alternatives.
