Science and trivia buffs aside, few would think to name a cafe after the chemical symbol for the acid compound found in organic food. But when sights are set firmly on offering meals that are as organic as possible, it's a fair call. Before the healthy food-phobic flee they should note: COOH's take isn't mung bean-bland. There's a beef burger with the lot, including free-range beef patty, bacon and cheese; zucchini buckwheat fritters with avocado, roasted tomato and smoked salmon; and house-baked treats, from muffins to mini pavs. Recycled furniture and exposed brick echo the earthy message, and coffee is roasted on site.
