Bitten Goodfoods on Lonsdale Street is arguably trendier than the street itself. A progressive health food shop with a sexy Instagram, extraordinary smoothies and a café which has moulded to suit those on any limiting diets including low inflammatory, vegan, grain free, dairy free, gluten free, paleo & organic diets.
Owned by power couple Alex & John who are the driving force of the café and grocer designed to offer locals a holistic approach to food. One that inextricably links our emotional state to our physical health. The humble foods at Bitten are deeply satisfying for more than just their tastes with a menu full of items you won’t find anywhere else around Canberra.
The café creates foods to teach locals how to use Bitten grocer ingredients in everyday home cooking. Alex has created a space where her team can offer advice on pantry swaps to substitute bad habits and share tips on the kitchen. Equally as important, the cafes other function is to reduce waste from the supermarket. Finding ways to minimise waste well beyond a keep-cup is something Alex thrives on day-to-day.
Your caffeine fix can last longer at Bitten, they have a range of different ways to enjoy your morning coffee, including the Bulletproof Coffee, Coffee Infused Kombucha and Specialty Lattes formulated with a mix of adaptogens (plants that help your body resist stressors) and provide your body with real cellular (ATP)energy.
