One of Wise Cicada's Favourite Reviews What's This?
My mum does pretty much most of her grocery shopping here, so out of curiosity my sister and I decided to stop by and pick up one of their famed smoothies. We were told by the woman at the counter to take a seat because they’re made from scratch and could take a while, so we sat at the lovely big communal wooden table in the middle of the cafe area. At $12 each the super-food smoothies are a little pricey, but considering the quality of the ingredients that go into them, they’re worth every cent. And they’re absolutely delicious!
After our smoothies we decided to have a browse of the store, and each of the staff members who walked past us gave us a friendly greeting with a smile! We wandered up and down the aisles finding all kinds of interesting health food, and we’ll definitely be back to get another smoothie (and maybe buy some ingredients so we can try come up with our own smoothies at home!).
I also bought a Chocolate Rough, which had in it goji berries, coconut and a few (non-peanut) nuts, and it was so much better than any chocolate baked product I’ve had at bakeries. Wise Cicada also have a great range of skincare that I’m looking into purchasing at my next visit. Love Wise Cicada, it’s literally quite impossible to leave this place without a smile on your face!
The food is always super fresh and salads are not only satisfying, it is also very delicious.
A must visit experience.
I trust this place and believe there should be more healthy places such as Wise Cicada in New Zealand.
Very helpful young man behind the counter went to the kitchen and the chef came out and spoke with me. She said “let’s make a plan” and we sat down and discussed number of people coming, dietary needs and what she could whip up for me to take away.
So while I indulged in a delicious flat white and a seed cookie (Yum), and my daughter had a very delicious vegan chocolate brownie, Pia cooked up two beautiful dishes for me to takeaway! She even lent me her baking dishes to bring back.
AMAZING service, and so friendly!!! I have already pinched a bit of the scrambled tofu for my own lunch yesterday, to try it out, and because I could not resist. It was so amazing! One of my dietary requirements, was that it would have no garlic or onion. That is an amazing cook that can create an entirely animal product free dish with no garlic and no onion that tastes that amazingly good!!! Thanks guys, you are AWESOME!!!
Con: shop is overpriced, except for some items (much cheaper in other shops)
I love the oasis in Newmarket for its cafe with its organic treats! Unfortunately you can easily miss it as it’s not very inviting from the street. Savoury dishes are wonderful (just 10$!!), salads, coffee, Chai Tea and a sweats (Bliss ball and Muesli slice) are great too. The breakfast buffet is again a bit overpriced for not much variety (could do with some veggies or salads). But everything tastes amazing – and of course the best is that it’s all organic! I was also fascinated by the different kinds of water you could chose from. And the coolest thing is that this place is open until 7pm!
The shop sells some great products but you can get many of them cheaper elsewhere. Some fresh produce and the eggs are good offers.
Highly recommended for all those of a spiritual, hippy or ‘goodwill to all’ kind of a bent.
