Soul Mama Restaurant

Home > Melbourne > Restaurants
Published July 13th 2011
If you're in the mood for fresh, healthy vegetarian food with a doorstep view of the ocean, Soul Mama is the place to go.

Soul Mama is not only supportive of ethical causes, but a few notches up from your usual hippie joint. In the midst of upper end St Kilda lies the most picturesque vegetarian restaurant in Melbourne, with a slightly relaxed feel.

The first thing you notice as you enter the restaurant is the amazing view of the ocean from within its high glass walls. I've been here a few times at sunset during summer for dinner, and the view is breath taking.

Sitting right on the beach, Soul Mama offers a vegetarian buffet with a variety of cuisines from Italian, Chinese, Indian and all else in between. I'm sure classy isn't the first word that comes to mind when one says 'buffet,' but worry not, this place defies the norm. As you choose the size of your meal from small, medium to large, you're then bewildered. Choices, choices, choices. What to choose? You seriously are spoilt for choice here with so many fresh delicious menu options, there's not a single person who's plate isn't filled to the brim as they lick their lips back to their table.

The food is made fresh daily, which you can easily tell when you start eating. The best thing about Soul Mama is that the menu options constantly change with the seasons, so you're never bored with the same menu. Yes, vegetarian diet has a lot more choices than you may think, and Soul Mama proves just that.

The staff are friendly and willing to help out, as you're initial visit may be confusing. It took me a few visits before I figured out 'how things work' here. You have to first be seated, and once you've decided what meal option you want, you then order the plates, only after which you can line up at the gourmet buffet. As you fill your plates with steaming hot items, you get to sit back and relax and eat your meal in the serenity of this space. A beautiful ocean view, a warm detectable meal, you're in bliss.

Soul Mama is definitely a restaurant worth visiting on your next outing in St Kilda. Maybe ending with a stroll along the beach with some ice-cream could top the entire experience, but I highly doubt you'd be dissatisfied either way.

Soul Mamas is one of my favorite vegetarian places. The view is lovely, the food exceptionally good and the desserts, divine.

Apparently this business has now closed down, it doesn't appear they have relocated anywhere.
