A hit with the Stirling locals, Dunn & Walton is health and wellness paradise! They have their finger in every organic, gluten-free pie. Best known for their certified organic produce, their space also features a bulk food section, sustainable living items and a takeaway cafe.
The business started 25 years ago in a local market garden shed in Gwelup. In 2015, they set down roots in Doubleview on Scarborough Beach road as D&W. The store is something special. It’s fitted out with concrete floors and wooden furnishings in a style that I would describe as ‘industrial boho’. It’s very instagrammable. No matter what time of the day I visit, it’s always buzzing with locals doing their shopping or grabbing a guilt-free bite to eat.
D&W is a certified organic shop, meaning that they don’t sell anything that ISN’T organic. Yes, that includes the takeaway food and drinks too! As someone with dairy and gluten intolerance, it can be hard to find delicious food. D&W makes healthy eating easy. No matter your dietary requirements, you will find something for you.
L-R: Soy Matcha Latte, Cave Sandwich, Sweet Chilli Tempeh Turmeric Wrap.
Dessert: Peanut Butter Blondie, Blue Bounty, Not-A-Twix
The drinks menu will leave you spoilt for choice! It features hot drinks and smoothies galore with a bountiful choice of extras to add some zing. Mushroom powder, vegan ice cream, hemp protein, bee pollen or maca anyone?
Introducing my favourite item: the Cave Sandwich. It’s vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and packed full of warming roasted veges and Japanese mayo. It’s their hearty winter special and get this- the bread is made from broccoli! Now I’ve seen everything.
The business has a strong emphasis on minimising waste, with only 5% going to landfill. There are no plastic containers or cutlery in sight and they never gave out plastic bags, even before the ban. Make sure to dispose of your waste in the appropriate bins!
If healthy living is your jam, D&W is a must-visit. You will love poking around the shelves of organic cosmetics, food and dry goods and ogling at the quality of the fresh produce. Even if you’re just there for the coffee, chances are you’ll be inspired to leave with something new to try. This time saw me leaving with a paper bag of raw cacao powder for my Winter hot chocolate cravings!
What’s more, D&W recently launched an online shop where you can order your fav organic products and groceries and have them delivered to your front door. Prioritising your health has never been so simple!
