This cute little cafe is certainly a must go place! Fantastic for the health conscious, vegan and or anyone who appreciates the ideology of mind, body and soul. The food is healthy and doesn't lack taste. All food items are elegant and look like pieces of art. I had a "soul bowl". I struggled to eat the meal. There were... More

We stumbled on Alchemy on a driving trip to Penguin and are glad we did. Not only is the setting "different" in a very quaint way, so is the food. There's a big emphasis on healthy eating which fortunately translates to tasty eating. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her dish, poached eggs with salad and mushrooms on pumpkin bread. My lamb... More

A delightful cafe that serves an impressive range of raw cakes and desserts, as well as some lovely vegan options for lunch. They provide many gluten free options, and even some nut free options. Comfy couches to recline on inside, and a cute courtyard outside (for soaking up some sunshine). Friendly staff, wide range of vitamins, essential oils, healthy products,... More

The cookies and cream raw cake was the best cake I've ever had. My children keep asking to go back there, they've got no idea it was healthy. Great coffee and delicious gnocchi too.

We stumbled across Alchemy passing through as tourists in the area. What a gem, so very different to the usual cafes. The food was healthy and very tasty. It is more than a cafe with food and drinks, it also offers a vast array of alternative therapies, books, suppliments etc. I wished I had a place like this close to... More

We have been semi-regulars at Alchemy and always loved the atmosphere, quirkiness and relaxing ambiance. Drinks have always been great. Food can be a bit hit and miss, but generally pretty good. We walked in through the front door (now the only entrance/exit) to find an ugly work station/desk where there once had been church pews, and tables of people... More
