With the vegan trend taking off to new heights, plant-lovers can only be thrilled by the number of new places that are surfacing all over the place. A new arrival to the Gold Coast, SeraBar is all set to fill tummies the vegan way and ensure that everyone is pleased with their delicacies.
How did Serabar first lay roots?
The Wright family had to start life afresh when they moved up the Australian coast. Apart from the move being a big change, the family also decided to hop on to the vegan wagon and adopt a new and healthier lifestyle. This is when they decided to start a vegetarian superfood café in Burleigh, called SeraBar.
Having come from England, the family had to haul themselves around the place a lot as the father’s military career kept taking him places. According to the mother, Claire, the family decided to move to Australia to experience a quiet, balanced life and they certainly have received that, and more.
The idea of filling tummies with vegan food began when their daughter Amba began cooking vegan food at home, after learning about raw and plant-based foods. Given the outdoor lifestyle that people are used to here, a healthier lifestyle just went hand in hand with a healthier diet.
What runs this superfood café?
This café is wholly a family affair with Carina Wright, Claire Wright, Dean Wright and Amba Wright putting in their all, to keep customers happy. Claire claims that her daughter was the real inspiration behind the café. Although just 18 years old, Amba was in charge of cafes and bars in the past and now brings all her past experience to the table.
With a menu that contains healthy, plant-based meals, the food served here is plain delicious. You don’t even have to be vegan to enjoy all that they have to offer. However, you can never get tired of eating here as the menu is always changing, with new discoveries being whipped up every week and specials of the day that will tempt your taste buds.
At the Top of the Menu
Apart from the range of smoothies, desserts and drink options, you can indulge in a breakfast that includes peanut smash, a bean porridge with vanilla and the most loved, avo smash with tofu bacon and the super duper big brekkie.
You can make a bigger meal of your lunch or dinner with classic nosh excluding the meat. You can dig into burgers, fries, pizzas, tacos or go in for something a little less heavy like the tofu skewers and salads. When it comes to smoothie options, you can try the unique variety that is offered here, from choc shock to the original acai.
For the family, coming up with a vegan menu for the café wasn’t all that hard since they were also experimenting at home. For them, it was merely preaching what they practiced. All the food here is tasty, plant-based and homemade. Thus, the family is aiming not just to fill tummies and satisfy customers with their food, but to inspire a generation and get more people opting for vegan options.
