Melbourne’s best healthy breakfasts on the go


It wasn’t long ago that finding a healthy takeaway breakfast  in Melbourne was like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.  But our prayers are now being answered by  cafes, juice and smoothie bars expanding their offerings to satisfy our growing appetites for a healthy, convenient kick start to our day.

Here’s my pick of Melbourne’s best…

Green Cup – South Yarra
OMG hot pick: as hard as it is to go past the signature Green Cup smoothie, the smashed avocado on seeded bread with chilli (or chia) is seasoned to such perfection, it’s like a flavour explosion in your mouth – if sweet is more your thing, the Matcha Maiden mango green smoothie is pretty good too.

OMG hot pick: Though renown for their organic superfood smoothies, the sweet toasted sprouted bread with tahini, banana, honey, chia seeds and cinnamon is a breakfast that will stop you in your tracks!

Green Press – CBD
OMG hot pick:  The low GI breakfast burrito is the perfect hand held start to the day.
