Thanks to Ashley from FOOD-pampering yourself  (a platform that connects bloggers, restaurants and food lovers), Winston from The Hungry Excavator; Ming from Sweet and Sour Fork; and Michelle from the Bake-a-nista and I went on a tasting session at the new Cacao Green opening at Tivoli Arcade, Bourke Street. And thanks to Cacao Green's management team (Alvina, Josh, Jesse) for their kind gesture  :)

The Restaurant

The grand opening of this new store coincided with Fiesta Malaysia 2012, that is 30 March. Great decorations and ambiance, good lighting and is more spacious compared to its original store on Swanston Street.

The store places itself at the entrance of Tivoli Arcade, on opposite of  the tram stop along the busy Bourke Street. This makes it a more convenient place to grab your healthy breakfast before heading off to work/university via tram? :)

I especially like the travel guidebooks on the shelf, just hit my soft spots.

What to Eat?

Picture
THIS IS HOW MUCH WE ATE! we are so bloated we couldnt even finished them!
Picture
Mixed Berry Parfait $6.90. I am not a berries person but I dont mind eating this whole day. The berries sweetness is just right and I like the crunchiness of the granola on top! :)
Picture
Tropical Parfait $6.90. Nom nom noM!!!
Picture
Fruit 'n Crunch ORGANIC YOGURTS $6. They are ORGANIC YOGURTS, not Frozen yogurt. And hence would taste a bit bland as compared to Fro-yo. But with few toppings, they are yummeh! And Healthy!! :D
Picture
Orange & Honey ORGANIC YOGURTS. Not too sweet and healthy!! :DD
Picture
Apple 'n Passionfruit ORGANIC YOGURTS. Personally Im not a passionfruit person. So... I would go for the other two yogurts lol
Picture
Mixed Berry MUESLI :) So much textures going on Im a happy person! :)
Picture
Tropical BIRCHER MUESLI. See the Chia seeds on top?? :) What makes a good breakfast now? :)
Picture
Honey Bread with Mixed Berries $8. A generous slice of honey bread. Served Hot. Like the crunchiness and sweetness!! :) But eat it fast, otherwise it could get a bit soaky :O
Picture
Blueberry Almond Waffle $9. Like the shape. I like Waffle, so nom nom nom! But again, not a berries person haha.
Picture
Warm Quinoa Pudding with Strawberries $7.50. Honestly, I havent even heard of the word Quinoa Pudding before this (you could see how unhealthy I am :P). The texture is a bit different from other grains, a bit too funny to my liking, but worth a try! :)
Picture
The fresh Lemonade! :D

Like you, I am also a food lover. Your blog is great in finding good food and restaurant. In weekends I took your blog as a reference for outing. The restaurant that you introduced above had a great ambience. Thank you for another nice place.

Great read, I just passed this onto a co-worker who was doing a modest analysis on that. And he really got me lunch because I found it for him .So let me rephrase that: Thanks a lot for lunch! My best regards.
