Fresh Earth calls itself a food store. Which it is. It is far more than a restaurant. It has a bakery out back where it produces some of the breads it serves in its restaurant and sells in its shop, whilst the food it serves has an emphasis on vegetarian, organic, local and healthy food. So you will be able to get wheat-free bread served with your breakfast, soya milk with your coffee, and a rich assortment of vegetarian and vegan foods.
It’s an all-round healthy place to eat. The food is also incredibly nummy and devoid of all the nasties like colourants and preservatives. Eat there on a Saturday and you’ll be subject to their ‘Table of Abundance’, an all-you-can-eat buffet that looked fairly incredible, made only with natural and organic ingredients. The shop is very well stocked with health supplements, whole foods and organic, alternative body and household products. I could spend hours there.
