This guilt-free grocery store and café, which stocks all the usual natural products from washing powder to vitamins, has been a longtime favourite of Inner West residents since it opened nearly two decades ago on a once-sleepy stretch of Darling Street.
Aside from the usual dried goods, they've also got an extensive range of food, both on the shelves and ready-made. There’s a bar for nuts, a bar for salads, a bar for hot food, one for dessert, another for yoghurt and fruit and even one for pizza. And now, a cheese counter! Just walk in, fill a box with whatever you feel like eating and walk out with your head held high – and a sense of smugness that will follow you for the rest of the day.
About Life also has stores in Bondi Junction, Cammeray, Double Bay and Surry Hills.
