Nourish Real Food Cafe



Nourish Real Food Café is a cool charm-filled all day breakfast café and mini-providore in a beautifully restored character building in Ipswich’s historic Top of the Town precinct.

Inside is a splendid mix of old and new with exposed handmade brick feature walls, gleaming white tiles, polished concrete floors and, out back, a mobile vertical herb garden with goldfish pond.

True to its name, the emphasis at Nourish is on healthy, with the owner Jess a qualified naturopath bringing her knowledge to the table.

Food served here is organic, seasonal and locally sourced where possible and in addition to the menu, there’s a small range of healthy ingredients available for purchase, including a line-up of serve-yourself nuts and coffee beans.

The all-day breakfast menu offers tasty choices such as Shakshuka (baked eggs in a Middle Eastern spicy tomato base, topped with feta and served with sourdough), Breakfast Chilli (Mexican-style savoury mince topped with a fried egg and served with house made chilli jam and corn bread) and a luscious Eggs Benedict (poached egg with hollandaise sauce, spinach, sour dough and country style bacon from locally renowned Schulte’s butchery) or something light and cold such as a Choc Nutty Acai Bowl or House Made Bircher Muesli with fruit and yoghurt.
