About Us

At The Healthy Owl our focus is making deliciously healthy good-for-you food using real wholesome ingredients - and we make everything right here in our kitchen!


The idea for a Bakery/Cafe that offered easy-to-access, affordable and healthy food had been in the back of Lora-Lee’s mind for quite some time and in July 2013 she opened The Healthy Owl in North Waterloo to do something about it.

Her first priority is that everything must taste great - it must be healthy, but if it doesn’t taste great, it doesn’t make the menu! New items are tested by staff first, tweaked if necessary and then tested by a few regular customers who have offered to provide feedback. Only after an item has received glowing reviews by all parties is it added to the menu. ‘O.K.’ just doesn’t make the grade!

Preparing everything from scratch on site means that Lora-Lee and her staff can readily answer customers’ questions regarding particular ingredients, items they are seeking to avoid or would like to add to their diets. Ultimately, it means that all our customers can enjoy worry-free great tasting food that is also deliciously healthy.
