Shop 14, 425 Bourke Street Surry Hills 2010

In 2015 Venus Wholefoods’ founders Michelle Hughes and Tim David set up shop in The Stables precinct where their healthy lunchtime fare earned a loyal following. Eighteen months later Venus moved to a larger space across the road.

Hughes and David designed and built the new cafe themselves. The street-facing shopfront has sun in the morning and outdoor and indoor seating. The fit-out features concrete, tiles and greenery.

There is a grab-and-go style fridge and a large salad bar for which David makes seasonal salads. Vegan options include plant-based versions of classic meat dishes such as chicken schnitzel; jackfruit pulled pork; walnut mince; and a veggie sausage.

Venus serves Single Origin Roasters coffee and its signature, feel-good smoothies, including Love (banana, kale, spinach, coconut milk, chia seeds, super greens), Friendship (banana, mixed berries, almond milk, maca powder) and Empowerment (banana, almond milk, cacao, mint, chia seeds).
