Vitalo Cafe Walkthrough

Over the past two or so years, Sacred Grounds’ Marketing Manager, Ali and myself have pounded the old pavement visiting some pretty fabulous partner cafes. So we thought for something a bit different, instead of making you all wait for our blog about Vitalo Cafe in Lilli Pilli next month, we’ve created a short walkthrough video so you can get the vibes from this beautiful new cafe.

Modern Organic: Cafe Profile

In the beautiful Central Coast suburb of Long Jetty there’s a Yoga studio with a bit of a twist. It’s called Modern Organic and this is one place you must not miss on your next trip to the ‘coast’. This place oozes wellbeing combining a beautiful organic cafe with body stretching, soul resting Yoga.

Modern Organic is owned by Kirt and Kiran, a husband and wife team with a passion for holistic health. This dynamic duo spent 10 years working in hospitality before pursuing their own ‘dream’ business, opening Modern Organic in March, 2016.

Modern Organic Specialties 

Imagine popping down for your regular Yoga class and then treating yourself to some delish Sacred Grounds coffee, organic, healthy meals or even a scrumptious smoothie. They’re all about inspiring others to make healthy choices that’s also great for the world as a whole. Over 20 Yoga classes are conducted every week as well as workshops and other events – so it really is a happening place. 


We asked owner Kiran about the businesses ethos, its heart and this is what she had to say…

We care. We care about our planet, we care for ourselves and each other. We care where our products come from and how they are made. Using local, organic and ethically sourced products is an essential part in creating a healthy and sustainable future.

Organic practices are not just about the certification; they are about the holistic approach that supports the earth, all lifeforms, the farmer and us, the people. In light of this, we offer a consciously prepared and nutritious menu utilising organic, local, sustainable & seasonal ingredients where possible.

We are passionate about health & wellbeing, we are creating a conscious community, sharing knowledge and bringing awareness to people about the importance of maintaining a healthy mind, body, soul and planet.

This is why Sacred Grounds and Modern Organic fit so well together. We share the same outlook on life, the same heart for our world, the people in all nations and the food/ beverages that we consume. Kiran said…

We aim to align ourselves with likeminded businesses who believe in ethical and sustainable practices, which is clearly seen throughout Sacred Grounds’ range of certified organic and Fair Trade products.

The Modern Organic Difference

This place is more than a cafe, it’s more than a Yoga studio, it’s a community!

We have combined two passions to create a conscious community of people on the Central Coast. Where in a lot of Yoga studios, students walk out after their class and back to their own busy lives, our students often come out of a Yoga practice and head straight into our garden dining to mingle with the people they have shared a class with. 

Although the cafe attracts its own unique clientele, with a lot of our menu options being vegan and gluten free, we love the fact that the dual business complement each other and both students and customers become not only friends but part of the family.

That is what’s missing in the world, don’t you think? A sense of community, taking the time to get to know each other in the flesh and choosing healthier options that not only benefit the consumer but the producer!

So if you’re ever in the Long Jetty area, make sure you drop in for a chat, a stretch or just a coffee and something yummily-healthy to eat. You won’t regret it!

The Shack: Cafe Profile

One of the best things about our business is hanging out with the people behind some of Australia’s best cafes and The Shack is definitely one of them.

The Shack began with an organic foundation that reflected its rustic, shack-like cafe design. Their aim has always been to create simple and healthy food that also tastes amazing! And I can testify to the fact that this is 100% true.

Raw Temple: Cafe Profile

The raw food revolution is upon us and whether you’ve jumped on board or not, there’s some really amazing raw options available you MUST try! We chatted to Ginger, the owner of the beautiful Raw Temple in Newcastle about this new wave of healthy eating and the philosophy behind their cafe.

What is Raw Temple’s philosophy?

Raw Temple is about showing the world that raw food is the smallest footprint and greatest environmental option a person can make, whilst still having awesome delicious meals, cakes and treats that take care of your body.

The range also helps those with dairy and gluten intolerance, coeliac, autoimmune dysfunctions and others and also every good person willing to let go of sugar and love themselves beyond their addictions. We’re proud of you!  

When was Raw Temple established?

The new foodies on the block, we only started officially in June 2016 but watch this little baby grow.

Why Vegan?

Why Vegan you ask! This really is the most responsible foodstyle choice that can be made today. So many areas on this planet need our help and being vegan ticks so many in one simple message and change of lifestyle. Being Vegan is truly the New Black! Putting the Earth and it’s Inhabitants back in the Red .. alive, well and flourishing for generations to come.

Why Organic Fairtrade Coffee?

We support Fairtrade and to have coffee and Sacred Grounds operate with this message means knowing that local and indigenous communities benefit and receive all they are entitled to be the best motivation to back brands that grow and import with this kindness and respect.

We have much gratitude to all who support local growing and production. And Organic well it’s been said before but seriously let’s stop poisoning our food our land and our waterways! It’s just not cool, it spells death, so we are 99.9% organic in all our purchasing – we always aim for 100% and although it’s not the cheapest, we know it’s the absolute best for our tribe of valued customers.

What does Raw Temple specialise in?

Raw Temple specialise in raw food, Cheezecakes infused with superfood powders, enhanced with kindness and the introduction of Australian Indigenous superfood powders and herbs.  

We offer custom cakes and are about to launch a raw vegan Wedding cake range, so brides…get ready. Raw Veganising everything you’ve ever eaten cooked is what’s going on with us.

Is there anything that Raw Temple offers that is unique?

Besides loads and loads of yumminess we hope that others grow to understand and appreciation enjoyment and fulfilment of choosing a raw food style so that we can change the face of the health system Down Under with our food choices. We offer specialised consulting on the drinks and foods you order to add in superfood powders the help deal with any health issues or ailments you are looking to address or avoid in the future.

Thanks Ginger! All the best to the amazing Raw Temple cafe in Newcastle. If you’re in the area, why not pop in say hi and enjoy some delicious and nutritious healthy treats, served up with some yummy organic, Fairtrade coffee. Sounds good to me!
