The hand ground almond croissants at Lize & Bath Cafe are what I imagine food heaven to be. I literally plan my train trip to work so I can jump off at Museum station and walk via this café to have one.

The buttery, salty, nutty decadence is a treat that my waistline really cannot afford to have, so I limit myself to succumbing to their crunchy, gooey goodness only once a week!

I stumbled upon Lize & Bath a few months ago when I started using the walkway underpass from Museum to Park Street.

The Café seems starkly out of place against the retro print shop, newsagent and alterations shop who are its neighbours. I stopped as it was always busy, the staff looked friendly and the food and coffee always smelt so good. Since that first coffee, I haven't looked back.

Lize & Bath (a combination of Elizabeth & Bathurst streets), are Bo & Michelle, a food-loving couple who were driven to find wholesome alternatives for their family when their firstborn suffered eczema and clean eating provided a remedy. Their ventures include Vim & Tonic bar and the Lize & Bath organic café in Sydney's CBD. They are a couple who are passionate about life and are committed to providing high quality, organic sourced products that respect the consumer and the environment.

Their focus and drive is simple; source organic, bio-dynamic and locally produced/pastured ingredients and make them accessible to everyone at affordable prices.

They source a variety of high-quality foods including Lewis & Sons' range of FODMAP friendly, gluten free, Paleo friendly Charcuterie, Biodynamic Oranges and Bananas from QLD organic growers.

For breakfast, if I am trying to be healthy, I grab a Superfood Granola - delicious goodness with apple, coconut, quinoa, yoghurt and Paleo friendly.

If I am not being super healthy, I grab a muffin, croissant or the waffles served with freshly whipped honey butter for breakfast.

Lunches consist of house made salad boxes and soups that change daily. They offer 3 soups daily - choose from combinations such as cauliflower and parsnip, kale and cashew, and pumpkin and coconut.

They do amazing muffins, banana bread and macadamia brownies.

You can get your Kombucha, a range of Pukka herbal teas, energy balls and also try innovative dishes such as turmeric lattes with organic coconut milk.

Lize & Bath serve gorgeous healthy smoothies such as the Ba-Zinga which has no added sugar, the sweetness is from fresh organic medjool dates, high in potassium and fibre as well as chia seeds for omega-3.

For me, however, it is all about the delicious coffee and the unpassable decadence of the Almond croissants.

So if you are in the city mid-week and looking for a delicious treat, head underground and look for the warm yellow and black shopfront and bicycle out the front.

Make sure you try the croissants, but please leave me the last one on Tuesdays!
