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 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?
THIS IS HOW MUCH WE ATE! we are so bloated we couldnt even finished them!
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! :)
Tropical Parfait $6.90. Nom nom noM!!!
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
Orange & Honey ORGANIC YOGURTS. Not too sweet and healthy!! :DD
Apple 'n Passionfruit ORGANIC YOGURTS. Personally Im not a passionfruit person. So... I would go for the other two yogurts lol
Mixed Berry MUESLI :) So much textures going on Im a happy person! :)
Tropical BIRCHER MUESLI. See the Chia seeds on top?? :) What makes a good breakfast now? :)
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
Blueberry Almond Waffle $9. Like the shape. I like Waffle, so nom nom nom! But again, not a berries person haha.
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! :)
The fresh Lemonade! :D
