Whether you are a vegetarian, carnivore, vegan, require gluten free or simply want to eat healthier, Planet Matterz in Morningside has something for you.
Planet Matterz is an organic food store and cafe located on Wynnum Road.
The cafe has a great selection of organic salads, roasted vegetables, lasagnes, sandwiches and pies. The breakfast menu has something to tempt everyone, with some special options for the kids. A small cabinet of desserts provides treats for those with a sweet tooth. Pop in for a selection of tea, coffee and bottled drinks. Fresh juices and smoothies are made on request.
This cafe has a relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Choose one of the tables and chairs or settle into the comfy lounges on offer. Grab an outside table to make the most of a gorgeous Brisbane day.
The cafe has a good sized dining area, so there are no problems with feeling jammed into a small space or manoeuvring a stroller around.
The cafe is child friendly with a children's sized table and chairs set up in one corner as well as a small amount of toys to keep the kids occupied. The mothers group, I witnessed on the day of my visit, all with newborn infants in tow, seemed relaxed and happy in their surroundings.
The well organised grocery store has a good range of food products including organic meats, seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products and grains.
The grocery store sells a lot more than food. For those wanting to adopt a more organic lifestyle there are cleaning products, skin care, hair dye, soap, baby products and much more.
Check out the in store bulletin board for what is happening around the local community or further afield.
Is this place still open? We walked there a few weeks ago on a Sunday morning for a look and possible brunch and it was shut. It looked like they had newspaper up at the windows when we passed in the car this last weekend ;o(
