Last year when we conducted our Foodie Awards, we asked you to tell us which type of foodie place was missing in Lane Cove. You told us that Lane Cove was missing an organic/wholefoods cafe and store.
Well things have changed since our Foodie Awards.
- The Source Bulk Foods Co will open on 4th March 2016;
- Greenhouse Salads opened last month;
- Super Mix Juicery has introduced new healthy wraps and rice paper rolls;
- Go Vita Lane Cove has introduced all natural peanut butter. In fact Go Vita has been serving the community of Lane Cove since 1953 and as such are one of the few remaining original health food stores in Sydney. They sell supplements, organic & gluten free, natural skin care & cosmetics; and
- About Life will be opening in March in the old Thomas Dux premises.
Australia’s largest and fastest growing holistic lifestyle hub and will open its sixth store in Lane Cove on Thursday 31st March 2016. About Life offers a one-stop shop for natural groceries and wholefood nutrition under one ethical, sustainable roof.
From staples to superfoods, About Life has you covered, rain, kale or shine. It’s not just a wholefood supermarket, offering a café, self-serve food bar and catering service to boot. About Life’s food is delicious and bursting with the goodness of clean, chemical free practices from fresh fruit and vegetables locally sourced and grown, to pantry staples, meats, dairy, bread, deli, green household, health and beauty, including About Life’s very own private label offering premium products without the premium price tag.
About Life Cafe
But wait, there’s more; there is also the About Life’s Cafe. The Cafe is dedicated to inventing wholefood dishes so damn good, it will be hard trying to decide what to order. Choose from an array of hearty superfood meals and salads to satisfy and nourish the body, along with a delicious range of hydration juices and smoothies. The coffee is equally as good, using premium roasted, certified organic and fair-trade coffee beans. Looking for something a little different? Why not swap your morning coffee for a ginger turmeric latte?
In addition, Nature’s Servery self-serve food bar is perfect for a ‘grab and go’ nourishing bite. With hot and cold menus changing seasonally and available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, items include Coconut Cinnamon Rice Pudding and Cacao Rice Bircher, a selection of whole food salads such as their signature Raw Lasagna, Raw Zucchini Noodles with kale pesto and Cauliflower Tabbouleh, and nourishing hot foods from Turmeric Mustard Pork and Kale Pasta to Scrambled Pumpkin Tofu and Beetroot Quinoa Risotto.
Catering comes naturally at About Life; with the experienced team doing all the hard work for your next event or office catering needs. All dishes are made from clean, nutrient dense ingredients that not only taste delicious but are also good for you too. Catering for all diverse diets, available for pick up or delivery, About Life catering provides effortless entertaining.
Wellness Team and Cooking Classes

The in-house About Life wellness team is dedicated to inspiring and informing others through wellness knowledge and nutrition including cooking with the view that food is medicine.
