Review – Nourish’d, Gardens

Nourish’d in Gardens is a café-slash-juice bar that serves us frenzied city folk in an environment that is laid back, tranquil and wholesome.

Address: 177 Kloof St (the old garage on Hof St)

Hours: 7am-5pm Mon-Fri, 9am-1pm Sat, Closed Sun

The best part about Nourish’d is they are (almost solely and wholly) devoted to sustainability. But you don’t need to focus on that when you eat there – it’s as if they have done all the work for you! By supporting them, you are essentially supporting a drive towards trying to reverse many current environmental issues that face us. From bamboo straws to ethically sourced sustainable ingredients, they have it all sorted! Best you do your bit for the environment and go grab a bite to eat immediately!

Their menu is extensive and has (mostly) vegan options, some of which include:

  • 12 different vegan juices ranging from R45-50
  • 5 different 30ml shots (R30), including Wheatgrass Shot and (if you aren’t a wuss like me) a Hot Shot
  • 9 smoothies that are all vegan-friendly to choose from (R50-58)

*all of the above come with a R10 refund if you return your glass jar/bottle

Not to mention, coffee and other drinks! Too much choice!

All-in-all a fantastic experience: a coffee, a smoothie and a “shmooshy” sandwich (without the avo for me). Would I go back? Of course! It’s a little oasis in the middle of the city. Utter perfection!

    Today’s service was beyond bad. Not only did i wait 10 minutes to place my order, I was told that several items on the menu were unavailable, as they had run out of some of the ingredients. Perhaps a chalk board, listing what’s not available, would be time saving for us loyal customers. Lastly, please bring back the wonderful lady that used to be at the counter, she was pleasant and professional, a far cry from the current replacements.
