Happy Days.

Isn’t it amazing when you stumble upon something absolutely new and refreshing in a city you’ve known for years?!

One-O-Eight Cafe and Yoga Room (named after the vedic universal number) came to Pune early last year with the dream and hope of changing the way Pune eats. Sourcing only the best products (best for your body and the environment) Bree and her team whip up the yummiest dishes that are sure to leave you feeling like someone just gave you a proper full-bodied hug (remember those?)

I’ve been eating at One-O-Eight for months now and it already feels like home. It’s one of those places in the city where you actually get to meet and talk to fun new people while getting some real good work done (I’m 10 times more productive working out of this cafe!) This week I was lucky to meet Alex, who’s a friend of Bree’s from Sydney, who also runs her own little cafe. She’s here for a few weeks to join Bree’s quest to change the way Pune eats and share exciting recipes with people who are eager to inject goodness into their daily diet.

Over a wholesome lunch, we chatted about organic food, the changing Indian palate, nutrition, food and children, Alex’s work back in Sydney and lots more.

Head over to One-O-Eight Cafe to remind your taste-buds of what food, real food tastes like. I know my taste-buds are still in shock.

Thank you Bree and Alex for such a fun lunch!

All important decisions need to start with the Minty Melon Juice - Watermelon juice with mint and chia seeds.
