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.



The Yam's fresh smoothies and juices will quench your thirst and fill you with goodness. The cafe's popular smoothies are made with cashew nuts and water to create a clever yet tasty nut milk.
