The up and coming suburb of Officer in East Melbourne has a new vegan hot spot, Chelles Soulfoods Cafe. Owner Rochelle Hayes has been making raw desserts under the same name for a few years now and supplies 15 cafes in Melbourne.
Rochelle, or Chelle, has always dreamed of owning her own cafe. She started out working at Mr Black Juicery on smoothies and making all the raw desserts until she ventured off on her own. She has been clean treating us with her Raw Snickers and Mars Bars and recently the Raw Magnums.
Now, you can find these treats and much more at the brand new plant-based cafe that aims to Nourish Your Soul with delicious cruelty-free food. You can sit down at the beautiful new cafe, but the whole menu is also available to take away.
The menu at Chelle’s Soulfoods is an all-day breakfast and lunch feast. You will find everything from nourishing smoothies, juices, and raw desserts. Flip to the other side of the menu and there is something for everyone, we recommend the choc chip pancakes which are also gluten-free and the savoury crumpets with housemade baked beans, cashew cheese, spinach and hemp seeds. Other items include avo toast, pumpkin toast (sourdough with smashed pumpkin, cashew cheese, pumpkin seeds and alfalfa sprouts). Also, a full smoothie bowl menu topped with all of Chelles raw treats is sure to leave you completely satisfied.
