Juice Jar Cafe
Juice Jar Café is Gumdale’s go-to for delicious fresh and healthy fare for breakfast and lunch along with smoothies, cold pressed juices, great coffee and baked treats.
Tucked away in Eastside Village shopping centre, Juice Jar Café has cosy indoor dining as well as al fresco seatng and plenty of free car parking available onsite.
It’s the food here that is the drawcard and worth a pitstop if in the area or passing through – for breakfast there’s choices like Huevos Rancheros (tomato, chill bean salsa, 2 free range eggs, tortilla and avo), Vege Health Kick (poached free range eggs, tomato, avo, mushrooms and chutney with toast), Greek yoghurt and muesli, a special Paleo breakfast and a couple of dishes that are available all day: Acai Berry and Pink Pitaya Bowl (topped with banana, strawberries, coconut and organic toasted muesli ) and the highly recommended Mediterranean – tomato, basil, Spanish onion, grilled haloumi and poached eggs on ciabatta.
For lunch there’s staples like Steak or Grilled Chicken Burger and BLAT as well as bountiful salads such as Lamb and Haloumi, Chicken, Avocado, Spinach and Strawberry or the Super Health Kick Salad (salad greens, tomato, cucumber, avo, nuts and seeds, carrot, beetroot, Goji berry with ginger, lime and coriander dressing). Or for something quick and easy there’s a range of toasted sandwiches for under $7 or choose from the delicious daily bakes like Angus Beef lasagne, quiches or frittatas, with or without salad.
Smoothies here are a house signature, as are cold pressed juices, with the former coming in flavours like Mango Tango, Very Berry, Caribbean, Acai Berry or Pink Pitaya and the juices a health kick in a jar - Immune, Detox or Liver Cleanse. The excellent coffee served at Juice Jar is from Byron Bay coffee roasters and tea is loose leaf, including English Breakfast, Earl Grey, herbal and chai.
There’s also a delectable range of sweet treats baked onsite, such as Banoffee, Caramel Apple Crumble, Coconut Rough Protein Balls, Citrus or Passionfruit tarts, brownies and Raw Cakes.
Need to know – Juice Jar café is child friendly, with high chairs available, plenty of room for prams outside and a small kids menu that includes Bacon and Eggs with Toast or Pancakes for breakfast.
