A wellness eatery which believes in delivering an exceptional guest experience, Alkalizer offers a space in which you can feel more connected and balanced while enjoying good food and even better coffee.
Alkalizer is the first of its kind in the South Western Sydney region and is committed to aiding you in making healthier, yet scrumptious life choices with ease. After all, as Virginia Woolf said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
Alkalizer’s philosophy is to spread positivity by balancing, nourishing, renewing and energising their customers via a holistic food and beverage experience. Its founding owners have almost ten years in the hospitality industry and recognise the need for an eatery where diners can relax and enjoy fresh and wholesome food and beverages.
Through their carefully planned gourmet meals and drinks, ambience and team, they infuse positive energy into the bodies and souls of their customers. They’re a lifestyle café that promotes wellness, mindfulness and self-care – you can pop in for a low acidity coffee, high protein snack or an all-important well-balanced meal – eat in or takeaway – and feel that life has been harmonised for the day.
“I was in the coffee business for more than 12 years – I was roasting coffee, drinking coffee, making coffee, training people in coffee,” owner Shefali Kapil explains.
“It came a stage where I had to stop drinking coffee because my stomach just couldn’t take it anymore.
“I ended up getting some advice about the benefits of an alkaline diet – a body that is more alkaline will fight off diseases better than one high in acidity.
“I started thinking about how to make a better, healthier cup of coffee, for myself first, but I started planning to open Alkalizer so then it became a matter of how to make it better for everyone.”
One of the healthier options Alkalizer offers its diners is alkaline water, with all proceeds from their sales going to charity. Good for the body, good for the soul.

Garnering Rave Reviews:
“Such a lovely family run business. Dedicated to healthy, nutritious and tasty food. And let’s not forget the great coffee too. I’m very partial to macchiato’s and they don’t disappoint. Super convenient in the CBD of Campbelltown for business meetings and very accommodating for events catering too. Thank you for opening up and giving a great cafe option in Campbelltown.”
“Amazing tasty food, the best (and biggest!) turmeric lattes and espressos that hit the spot everytime and awesome roasted coffee beans for at home – always the best service with staff going above and beyond, so friendly and helpful. We have eaten here for breakfast and lunch and also dropped in just for coffees or lattes and without fail it’s always amazing!”
