Time Out Melbourne

A mainstay of Elgin Street for nearly a decade, there’s something comforting about seeing all the food at Big Harvest cooked right in front of your eyes as you entertain a cup of Genovese coffee. Whether it’s their lentil, mint and feta; herby nutty brown rice; or tuna, black bean and chilli salad, the fun of eating at Big Harvest is not knowing what delicious salad is going to grace your plate that day. Sit outside on their makeshift wooden box tables and chairs while eating your still-warm orange flourless cake. A place for the health conscious with plenty of gluten free treats on hand.
