Our History

Nourish by nature

Hi, lovely people of the Gold Coast and beyond! We are the Cardamom Pod vegetarian, plant-based eateries in Broadbeach on the gorgeous Gold Coast, and beautiful Byron Bay.

We are inspired by the art of creative tasty cuisine and take much pleasure when folks benefit on a healthy and happy level from the foods we prepare. We started our careers doing non-profit catering for events like music festivals, vegetarian clubs at various Universities, food relief food for life, and cooking large feasts for Krishna temples around the world, along with various cultural events.

We were fortunate enough to become the head chefs in the famous Govindas’ group of restaurants in Darlinghurst in Sydney in the late nineties. We also started the now omni-present Byron Bay Bliss Balls – a now very popular gluten free snack, before we started the first restaurant in Byron 14 years ago.

We are excited to be sharing global food trends, scrumptious recipes, unique and exotic mock-tails and lots of tid-bits about the art of food from a healthy and tasty perspective.
