The Raw Kitchen‘s Fremantle Markets stall has been one of my weekend staples since my first foray into raw. Now Heath & Emma have established a funky cafe in Fremantle’s Piazza Arcade.

What we ordered.
This was a family outing [thanks, Mum & Dad!] and each of our selections cost between $8.50 and $14.50, with the smoothies priced at $8-$8.50.
Mum was so rapt with her raw pizza slice ($8.50) and “Spice is Right” smoothie (spiced with cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, agave, almond milk, vanilla bean) that she offered multiple tastes to all and sundry.
Dad devoured his raw pasta ($12.50; spiralised zucchini + a rich tomato sauce) and “Strawberry Sip” smoothie pretty quickly…
…though I did manage to pilfer a mouthful before it disappeared.
I arrived at the cafe still in want of my morning coffee, so I felt compelled to order the “Morning Glory” smoothie, with its blend of coffee, cacao, banana, maca, agave and almond milk. I coupled this with an entree-sized serving of nachos ($14.50) and was filled with instant happy.
Little one was more than sated with his “Strawberry Sip” — but that didn’t stop him from sneaking tidbits off every other plate!
The glass straws were a quaint touch and I am sure they made the smoothies more sumptuous.
I don’t have any complaints about this little adventure. Although I would have preferred more mint in my mint cacao swirl [I love bold flavours! In terms of price, I think it was $3.80], it hit the spot and I would order it again.
I urge you to visit, especially if you are a rawfood skeptic. And if you are new to raw, The Raw Kitchen’s offerings are a fabulous introduction.
It’s hard to believe that something so good for you can be so darned flavoursome.
