Your new 'Happy Place'
Newly opened at stall 56 at the South Melbourne Market, Happy Place by Lola Berry, a collaboration between nutritionist Lola Berry and coffee king Salvatore Malatesta of St Ali.
Happy Place is a juice bar and cafe located within the popular South Melbourne Markets, serving up a huge selection of pressed juices, smoothies, raw treats and more. The menu offers a great balance between sweets and savoury items and is designed to have each customer leaving, feeling as though they've nourished themselves.
