Wild Yam Health Food Store & Vegetarian Cafe, affectionately known as The Yam to locals, has been in existence for over a decade. From a time when The Yam used to be a health food store and yoga room, this popular herbivorous venue now presents a cafe specalising in vegan and raw foods. The Yam's current owner Amy, a kind soul with a passion for clean eating, took ownership of the establishment 4 years ago.
Wild Yam Health Food Store & Vegetarian Cafe is becoming known for is specialty raw cakes and slices. The amazingly nourishing caramel slice is making quite a name for itself and I can personally vouch for The Yam's delectable raw chocolate brownie.
