Particle Cafe, Avondale Heights

Recently, my friends V and C took me to breakfast/brunch at Particle Cafe at Avondale Heights to say thank you for me storing some things for them in my garage until they sorted out their new storage arrangements.

Particle is out of the way if you don't live in the area, but it is well worth seeking out.  It serves paleo cuisine, and it is all served beautifully - almost too good to eat.

My breakfast choice was the Rainbow Bircher Muesli ($13) pictured at the top of this post.  You can see how beautiful it was - underneath the flowers and other garnishes, the oats were a vibrant reddish colour from the fruit juice they were soaked in.  The dish also featured pear, hazelnuts, coconut yoghurt, dehydrated mandarin, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and dehydrated raspberry dust.

We also bought some sweeties to try - this paleo carrot cake:

and a paleo Persian love cake:

Flavour-wise, I liked the spicy carrot cake best, but both desserts were gorgeous.  However, noting that they are paleo, don't expect them to taste like the traditional versions of these treats.

If you live in the north of Melbourne or don't mind travelling to seek out a great place to eat, give Particle Café a go for some tasty, beautiful, healthy and non-boring food.

It's very pretty food and quite an unusual name too! I would imagine that's what the cafe in a science wing at a uni might be called :D

The muesli looks so beautiful, almost too beautiful to eat. I have had some raw kind of paleo desserts and they were very different, but not bad.
