Lunch in Avalon

Avalon, Australia

I love this little town tucked away in the upper half of the Northern Beaches in Sydney. Avalon is a tony but laidback enclave, chuck full of cafes, cute shops, and tea cup size doggies walking their owners.

We didn't eat out much during our 8 days up in the Northern Beaches because most of our meals were cooked at home.  However, we did manage to have lunch one afternoon at quaint spot called, "The Healthy Chef".

At "The Healthy Chef" most of the ingredients are local, organic and free range. The menu also comes with a "key" to help you locate dishes to meet your dietary needs like "Vegan", "Gluten Free", "Organic" etc. Carlos and I had lunch with my Dad and Step Mother and everything tasted wonderful.......
