Review: Zeitgeist Cuisine (Sydney CBD)

Sebastian was intrigued/worried when I suggested a plant-based cafe for a lunch catch-up. He offered to bring some jerky for me in case I passed out (I didn’t. I eat meat-free meals here and there and I’m fine).

Zeigeist Cuisine‘s philosophy is to offer healthy plant-based food in an area that desperately needs it (i.e. Sydney CBD). Their meals and treats are packed and ready to grab, but you can eat them there, too. Keep in mind the cafe is small.

Small cafe, small menu. Not a bad thing when most items look appetizing; makes it easier to choose.


I don’t normally order smoothies but I figured I had to try one for the sake of blogging. The virgin espresso martini (cold brew coffee, dates, vanilla, cashews) was awesome: not too sweet, perfectly caffeinated.

The Raw Rainbow Pad Thai (rainbow zoodles w/creamy coco satay dressing) was our favourite. I loved the inclusion of spiralized beetroot (one of my favourite vegetables!), the variety of veggies in general, and the great sauce.

The Green and Gold (roasted vegetables, spiced chickpeas, quinoa, activated walnuts, green leaves, chilli, turmeric dressing), while more “conventional” was great, too.

We were given free goodies to take home: a raw Znickers bar for me and a brownie for Sebastian. The bar is on the sweet side, so it’s best to cut in small pieces and share.

Zeitgeist Cuisine is a great new addition to the handful of healthy places to eat close to work. I’m glad we gave it a try.

  1. That espresso martini smoothie sounds really yummy, just my kinda drink. I like how it is not too sweet. Some days it is nice to have a break from meat … did I really just say that??
