Nestled within the bustling South Melbourne Market, Stall 56 is a designer slice of healthy paradise.
Happy Place, a slick juice bar and cafe, is the crystallisation of popular nutritionist and bestselling author Lola Berry’s holistic wellness philosophy.
A collaboration between Berry and friend Salvatore Malatesta of St ALi, the Happy Place menu is centred on wholesome ingredients and is impressively accommodating to special dietary requirements.
Offerings include 12 seasonally rotating smoothies customisable with four milk (or mylk) alternatives; cold-pressed juices; and a cabinet brimming with raw paleo treats.
Plenty of portable salad options, including umami-nirvana The Emmami, which combines purple kale, cured salmon, tangy green apple and bonito flakes with a drizzle of miso dressing and tendrils of radish sprouts, give people a convenient, healthy takeaway option to make sad desk lunch a little happier.
