Walking down Main Road Green Point craving a healthy fix after a day of exercise? Osumo is a chain of natural healthy food cafes located in all the hot spots in Cape Town. Easily found by their distinctive blue and white logo, they boast four stores located in Sea Point, Cavendish Square, Canal Walk and on our doorstep in Green Point. Phillip, the manager of Osumo’s Green Point store, chatted with enthusiasm about his franchise, telling us about the strong philosophy this South African brand keeps.
Osumo was born in 2006, with a goal to provide fresh, nutritious and at the same time tasty food for gym junkies and sports fanatics who want to enjoy some sweet treats while keeping their diet balanced. The menu is exceptionally varied: from oats and eggs for an energetic breakfast to gluten, wheat & fat free rice noodles, or if you are looking for a quick snack for lunch they offer scrumptious salads and wraps.
Osumo is famous for their delicious smoothies and juices, all made with quality ingredients and fresh fruit. I tried the Cacao Bean super charged smoothie with whey protein powder, which is perfect if you need to recharge before a workout or after a nice run on the Sea Point Promenade, but still want to feel light.
I must admit it tasted amazing, and the best part is, you never have to feel guilty. Their Green Point location is easily accessible and the environment is cosy and super friendly thanks to the lovely staff. There is free Wi-Fi in all their stores, which is perfect for social media addicts like myself.
So what are you waiting for? Give it a go and enjoy this innovative and functional alternative to fast food.
