Who we are

Hear us raw!

Leafy Greens – where delicious meals come naturally.

Are you ready to enjoy not just a different lunch or breakfast, but a whole new way of life? A visit to Leafy Greens Café could be just what you need to fall in love with food all over again – and an important step towards loving yourself, too.

Through providing a different kind of eating experience, we’re encouraging people to change the way they think about and enjoy food. Leafy Greens is a place to eat, meet and retreat – a green, shady sanctuary from the traffic, malls and inboxes that can consume so much of our energy.

If you’re inspired by spending time out of the city, you can take some of our countryside flavours home with you: the Leafy Greens Shop stocks everything you need to create great meals and snacks in your own kitchen – and delight and surprise your friends and family.


Our food Philosophy

The Leafy Greens food philosophy is closely aligned to the ancient rural advice: “eat real food, mostly plants, and not too much”. This same wisdom underpins the cuisine of some of the healthiest cultures in the world, from the Mediterranean to Asia. We see growing, preparing and serving real food as a profound way of expressing and love and gratitude for Nature.

We are only too aware of the difference between food that comes from plants, and food that comes from a plant or factory. Too much of the commercially available food in our supermarkets bears very little resemblance to real food. Over-processed and over-packaged, it has been stripped of any goodness it once contained.

Instead, it’s often filled with chemicals, refined sugars, GMO ingredients and preservatives that could be doing untold harm to our health. At Leafy Greens, we follow a very different (garden) path.

Our food philosophy is defined by respect for the earth and for human health; by curiosity about our minds, bodies and souls, and by a determination to make things a little bit better, one plant-based dish at a time.

Our is to reconnect people to Nature through the enjoyment of living foods. We help people to experience fresh flavours free from guilt or anxiety, and to enjoy feeling more positive, energetic, and better able to meet the challenges of everyday life. We want to show you that far from being restrictive, a vegan or vegetarian diet opens up a world of delicious, nutritious possibilities and can transform your relationship with food, your body, and our planet. It’s time to open your mind, heart and mouth to the quiet revolution that’s sweeping our fields and streets.

Green is so this season

Even in winter, our garden provides.

At Leafy Greens, we keep things fresh by changing our menu as each new season rolls around, to make the most of the fresh, seasonal produce from our vegetable garden.

It’s the best possible way to ensure that every meal we serve is packed full of food that’s at its best, and that you receive all the goodness of the sun, soil and rain with each forkful. By growing different crops at different times of the year, we’re able to replenish the soil we depend on, and keep our chefs inspired with constantly changing colours, textures and flavours.

Fresh, local produce is better for you and better for our planet – there are no chemicals or excess packaging involved, and we can really cut down on the food miles (it’s just a short stroll from our orchard and garden to our kitchen – perhaps just as well, as it’s a journey we often make several times a day!).

Having a farm on our doorsteps also has other benefits: it contributes to a calm, tranquil environment in which to work, relax, eat and dream. With life in abundance all around us, we’re reminded at every turn just how much we have to be grateful for, and how much we want to share with friends old and new.
