Health Freak Cafe

Health Freak Café is about clean eating, giving your body nutrients to live a healthy, more active lifestyle. Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body giving you energy, keeping your brain active and muscles working.

Health Freak Café in Subiaco is a relative newbie aimed at the health conscious and fitness fanatics among us. Now I’m not sure I would profess to be in either of those groups. I do love running and general exercise and I try to eat healthily for the most part but I’m largely about trying to find balance in life. Life’s too short to never eat cake or have a day when you just mooch on the couch and watch TV - but I digress.

Health Freak is on the corner of Albans Avenue and Railway Road in Subi and has a small indoor seated area and a larger alfresco option. I’ve been twice now. On my first visit I had accidentally forgotten I was going out for breakfast and had already eaten my morning muesli. So on this occasion I opted for one of their Weight Loss Juices – Gingered Pear ($8.00) – Pear, Celery, Fresh Ginger. It was a punchy concoction with a real hit of fresh ginger mingled with the subtle sweetness from pear. It was fairly pleasant.

It was also a pleasingly refreshing contrast to the piece of Raw Red Velvet Cake that Miss P and I decided we would share. Wow, raw cake does not mean any less sweet. I’m not entirely sure what was in it. I would guess dates and some sort of coconut product. It was nice, but not quite my cup of tea. I think I’ll always just favour regular cakegive me flour, sugar, eggs and butter any day of the week.

So on my second visit I was ready to enjoy a more standard option from their breakfast menu and went for Free Range Eggs on sourdough toast ($12.50) and a Morning Boost – Carrot, orange, kale, lemon ($8.00). Across the table Miss P went for a Carrot and Cucumber Juice and on the food front the Tofu Scramble capsicum, mushroom and spinach on sourdough ($15.00).

I didn’t really think too much of the Morning Boost. It was very light on in the flavour stakes and whatever flavour was there was further wish washed away with all the ice in the glass. Not my favourite.

I was more impressed with my eggs. They were just perfectly poached. Really enjoyed them, but would have preferred a different bread. The sour dough was a fairly dense affair, not my favourite pairing with the poached eggs. But great eggs. The little salad on the side was a nice garnish, with some added zing from the balsamic vinegar dressing.

So two visits in and I hadn’t been all that blown away by the experiences. I did love the poached eggs but not sure if that’s enough pull to get me back a third time. I can see the appeal for those certain folk who fancy heading somewhere that they know will offer healthy dining options but I’m probably not the target audience they are pitching for.

    There’s a new Health Freak cafe on Green St, Mt Hawthorn (near the Pirate Bar). I wonder if it’s same owners? Those eggs look amazing (now I’m hungry…!)
