The healthy eating scene in the CBD is getting bigger and better. One of the newest additions is Cross Eatery, whose early reviews got my attention thanks to the words “Feather & Bone” and “kombucha on tap”. To find this place, look for the sign in the photo below.
I heard the coffee was good but was not my type. Not bad, just not as smooth for my South American palate.

As I mentioned before, they also offer kombucha on tap. Hopefully more cafes will follow this trend.

These guys make one of the best paleo-friendly breakfasts in the area: a Cross breakfast salad bowl with raw sprout, kale salad, probiotic cabbage, activated nuts and poached egg. I added a (generous) serve of Feather & Bone pastured raised ham and called it a meal.

For lunch, they have a few specials and a roast meat (I missed out on the lamb and the pork belly) with two salads. The day I visited, they had pulled beef brisket, made with Feather & Bone grass-fed beef and serve with house made pickles, which was very tasty. The serve was a bit small, FYI. I had it with broccolini, chilli, garlic & mustard dressing and burnt Brussel sprouts, citrus, walnut, and witlof.

This same meal can be ordered in a box to take away as in the photo below. They also do a box with two salads plus F&B ham.
