Let's face it, Brisbane has everything any devout foodie loves; great ice-cream, great gourmet food and great fruit and vegetables. But when it comes to finding a good vegan and vegetarian organic café that doesn't break the bank, there is no better place to satisfy those cravings than Gather and Feast.
The catchy name, edgy street art frontage, cool café style vibes and a fantastic menu has made this local haunt an institution for anyone living around Caboolture. Weekdays at Gather and Feast is buzzing with activity from when they first open in the morning at 6:30am with the locals opting for a grab and run Brekkie wrap, before hopping on the train or the local playing catch up with friends over lunch. Gather and Feast has a menu to die for, staff who are friendly and fast, and is open six days a week. Open for breakfast and lunch daily, menu offerings include berry fruit punch spritzer, freshly made vegan dragon fruit and vegetable pie with salad, vegan burgers, vegan cakes made to order and vegan pancakes, just to name a few.
Tucked away in a side street only a stone's throw from the Caboolture train station, Gather and Feast has created a cult following with their clean healthy and creative homemade dishes. Using local produce and supporting local farmers, they won a 2019 Forkies Award for using seasonal food in their menu. But wait, these superstars also won another two Forkies Awards for the Go To Venue to Nourish your Body and Soul (Fitspiration) and Runners Up for the Best Smashed Avo. The owners of Gather and Feast have created a surprisingly authentic experience in a suburb that is easily written off by many Brisbanites. It is a perfect blend of casual café dining and homey contemporary vibe, with plenty of seating that doesn't disappoint. The café provides inside and outside dining options, along with a dog-friendly area outside, underneath the Hawaiian style hut. This alone is something to check out, with the large wooden benchtops and seats to chillax in, while sipping on a fruit punch spritzer. This innovative café is putting Moreton Bay Region on the map in many ways that is both inspiring and hopeful for our future.
