NATURAL HEALTH FOOD STORE
Victoria businesses, condos, and apartments in the core, As a natural health food store, we CARE about the Water we use for your beverages! We’ve gone “over the top” and have in line for all of our water: a structuring unit (a series of strategically placed mineral ion balls where the water is given back it’s life force, like running over a waterfall and infusing it with healthy magnesium and a negative anti-inflammatory) and a filtration unit. We then use an alkalizing stick to also alkalize the water to a PH that helps create a superior tasting drink! If you’re following a vegan or cleansing diet, you’ll be pleased to know we make our own ORGANIC, RAW, SOAKED Almond Milk. We soak our Almonds overnight to reduce the Phytic Acid and make the milk more digestible and nutritious.
We sweeten it slightly with dates and add Sole Brine (salt water from Himalayan Salt Rocks) to make the perfect non dairy alternative. We use beans from The Coffee Lab in Rock Bay (a few kilometers away!) where Aaron roasts our special blend perfectly. We Make all of the regular Espresso Drinks plus some more unusual Coffee/Tea Bar Drinks.
