Quick Chop! The Annex Cafe

The Annex Cafe - 3 Waterloo Street, Glenelg SA 5045

I had visited The Annex Cafe many times for quick takeaway freshly squeezed juices and raw treats but today I decided I would sit in and try something from the lunch menu.  The Annex Cafe is a tiny cafe with indoor and outdoor seating just off Jetty road in Glenelg.  They aim to cater for many types of dietary needs including vegetarians, vegans, gluten free and paleo.

Soul Bowl $15

Attempting to have a healthy eating day I selected the 'Soul Bowl' which is described as a deliciousness of goodies including a marinated salad of mushroom and kale, avocado, beetroot, cucumber, tomato, dehydrated crackers served with Annex made hummus, pepitas, alfalfa, mung beans and sauerkraut.  I wanted healthy and healthy I got!  Each ingredient was strategically placed in the salad bowl with the small round crackers placed on one edge.  It was a small to medium sized bowl, so if you were particularly hungry it would probably be worth adding the organic chicken breast or smoked salmon for a few extra dollars.

All the ingredients were fresh and I liked the inclusion of the sauerkraut for some tang and the crackers and pepitas for crunch.  The homemade hummus was tasty and creamy and mixed with the other vegetable juices helped to make a bit of a salad dressing as there was no oil or vinegar type salad dressing added.  My only disappointment was the missing mushrooms!  It seems on this occasion the mushrooms were forgotten as I was only lucky to find one thinly sliced piece of mushroom floating within my marinated kale. 

So if you are looking for a casual, quick and super healthy breakfast or lunch location then this is your place.  It is especially lovely if you are able to snag a window table to bask in the sunshine and add a little vitamin D to that nutritious meal you're enjoying!
