With a beautiful fresh menu, organic Leaf & Berry coffee and a bright, plant-filled space – the locals of Caboolture, QLD have never had it so good.
The place is buzzing. Even on a weekday, regulars are quick to grab the best spots while plates of beautifully prepared food whizz out to all corners of this bright, welcoming cafe.
Candice, the owner of Gather & Feast, is brimming with energy. She needs it, having just added a second cafe on nearby Bribie Island (Annie Lane @annielanecafe) all while raising 5 kids. Yes, this is someone with a very full life.
Clearly, this is not her first venture in hospitality. Starting a chef’s apprenticeship at age 16, Candice moved all round the country plying her trade until the opportunity finally came to start her own business.
Her first venture was a food truck, moving around the circuit of local markets & events. While this business was a success, Candice quickly realised that a full cafe was what she really wanted to pursue. So when a spot in Caboolture became available, she was ready to snap it up. Candice explains “We saw a viable gap in the market. Everyone around me told me it wouldn’t work…I disagreed and proved them wrong”
They were wrong. The constant stream of customers and a passionate following on Instagram show how the local community has embraced Gather & Feast.
The menu here is as unique as it is delicious.
Fresh, healthy & vegetarian items are a feature, such as the ever-popular ‘Potato Hash Stack’ or specials like the ‘Vegan harissa roasted mushroom and avocado smash with coconut labna’.
How have the locals reacted to items like these? “Surprisingly well” Candice explains “even the meat eaters love them…”
Now, that’s not to say that more indulgent items are forgotten. Take for example the ‘Pancakes with housemade rosella jam, coconut ice-cream and persian fairy floss’ delicious…I’m not sure I need to say any more.
For coffee, the team chose our certified-organic Leaf & Berry blend. The delicate, fruit and nut notes of the blend are an ideal compliment the sophisticated flavours of the menu.
Like everything else, the coffee is beautifully presented by the baristas on their sleek, white La Marzocco Linea PB (with a cute custom green logo to match the decor).
Delicious coffee & incredible food. With a cafe like this in town, I’m sure the locals are thinking – who needs the city?
