I’ve been wanting to try Henley’s Wholefoods since the first time I went to Paleo Cafe but every trip to Bondi Junction has been to try new dishes at Paleo Cafe. Eventually my sister and I decided it was about time to give Henley’s a shot.
The cafe is located in the same commercial building, but it’s easy to miss. You have to go down the stairs (towards the gym and sports supplement store) and you’ll find it.
Henley’s philosophy is well-aligned with mine, and that’s why I didn’t mind travelling all the way there to support their business.
Everything at Henley’s is gluten-free (except the toast) and they have a tempting array of healthy sweet treats and breakfast-type stuff. They also have some ready-made salads if you’re in need of healthy takeaway.
On the beverage front, they sell Botanica cold-pressed juices and offer almond milk for the coffee. We ordered our long blacks before I remembered the almond milk (we’re so used to standard cafes!). Coffee was on the strong/sour side.
But we were there for brunch and that’s what we got. The green eggs: baby spinach-egg ribbon scramble, baked polenta, chorizo, avocado, red onion, cilantro and tomato salsa were nice but a lot different to what I was expecting. More like an airy egg muffin, if you wish. Flavours were pleasant but lacked salt and kick.

The weekend special, an open omelette with lamb sausage, red onion, tomato chutney & Sonoma toast (ordered without the toast), was tastier IMO. The presentation was beautiful. The ingredients in both meals were high quality (for example, I could see they use organic eggs and not just plain free-range) and super fresh.
