Will Tomlinson, the owner of Hunters Harvest, is a former world boxing champion. During his career, lean and nutritious food was as integral to his success and training, to maintain a weight of 59 kilograms for the super featherweight boxing division.
He always followed a balanced diet, eating mindfully and responsibly, but struggled to find cafes and takeaway joints that offered that type of food. So he started his own.
Hunters Harvest is open all day until 8pm, catering not only to the lunch crowd but those looking for a quick, convenient and healthy dinner. The menu is filled with hearty salads and bowls, and a range of smoothies.
There’s no coffee on the menu, but you can order a cup of bone broth instead. The most expensive item on the menu – a slow-cooked beef bowl – cost $17.
Tomlinson chose to use durable plastic containers for takeaway items that can be re-used at home – he also encourages customers to bring their own containers.
The interior is minimal but playful, with a peach-pink and royal blue wall and striking geometric timber cladding behind the counter.
