Part 8: Planted - Brisbane's best organic café

I have been to Planted Wholefoods Co. twice now and loved it. The café (serving out of an old caravan) which is solely devoted to preparing and selling organic and ethically as well as locally produced food and drinks can be found in Brisbane's West End near the great Boundary Street Markets. The café donates a meal and a drink depending on the vendored product and helps out overseas communities in need with a vegetable kit to become more self-sufficient in the future.

As if this wasn't enough already, Planted offers amazing and also very healthy food. I had a vegetarian wrap the first time I was there and a mouthwatering beef burger the second time. If they are sold out, then they are sold out. There is no endless food delivery letting infinite food go to waste.

Planted's idea of dealing with food is very inspiring and should definitely be taken up by many more restaurants or cafés. Find out more here.

You can visit the Planted café 7 days a week. Be aware though that they only serve food from 7am till 2.30pm and coffee is served from 6.30am till 3pm.
So get up early and have a taste of their great breakfast or their freshly made coffee.

Find Planted at:

93 Boundary Street
West End
QLD 4101

Part 7: Montville, Sunshine Coast

The beautiful small town Montville is situated on the Blackall Range overlooking the Sunshine Coast. Driving up there is fascinating, since you pass all sorts of landscapes. First of all you start off at the beach, continuing to flat land and then gradually entering the rainforest (which makes you think that the nearest city must still be miles away) and then eventually reaching Montville by surprise.

The church in the photo sits directly at a nice lookout making magical weddings or other services possible. You can actually see all the way through the windows to the scenic lookout.

Montville has got a lot of shops, galleries and an amazing café to offer. As we visited Montville we had a delicious breakfast at the Poets Café and strolled along the Main Street to look at the shops.

It's easiest to reach the beautiful and almost untouched hinterland of the Sunshine Coast with a car. Since the towns are all close by, a roadtrip is definitely recommendable. If you ever plan a trip there, make sure to check out Maleny and maybe go for a walk around the Mapleton Falls National Park to take a look at the waterfall there (pack stuff for a picknick as well to enjoy in the rainforest).
