Bulletproof coffee wasn’t something we were expecting to find in a cafe in Geelong! The term ‘Bulletproof’ isn’t a general term talking about good/consistent coffee either, that we were expecting. We’re actually talking about a new brew that’s taken the world by storm.
What’s so different about it? It’s coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil. That’s right Lavish Cafe Geelong puts butter in your coffee if you ask for it. Don’t worry, it doesn’t kill you, and because of the types of fats that go into it there are numerous benefits gained from a healthier heart to a happier outlook on life.
Although we’re quietly passionate about the topic and a big fan of the movement we won’t go on about it any more but you should read more about it here!
So the rest of the cafe… What a find!
Shane Goodall has been at it for 10 years running in High Street Belmont. His background as a chef and attention to detail would be what’s helped him outlast everyone else in the strip.
They have many varieties and micro-lots from Axil. When your long black arrives it comes with tasting notes and some sparkling mineral water to cleanse the palete before sipping. The options seem endless. If you’re after something other than espresso, Lavish Cafe Geelong has cold drip, bulletproof, filter, chemex, aeropress, a blended home made almond milk latte, Vietnamese ice coffee and Japanese ice coffee. Plus teas, smoothies, milkshakes, ice chocolate and more. It’s an impressive range.
The furniture is made of reclaimed timber and there’s also a park next door if you want some fresh air or have kids that want to run around.
On the menu is a seasonal list of wholesome breakfast and lunch options as well as a completely seperate menu dedicated to baked potatoes. Lavish Cafe Geelong caters for the health conscious as well people with special dietary needs and preferences. They’ve got you covered if you’re paleo, vegan, raw vegan or gluten-free.
