Our Roots

We came from humble beginnings…from creating and experimenting with homemade recipes over the kitchen table…to selling plant-based street food….to creating a spot where we can now share everything we have learned on our amazing journey!

Guava Favourites!

From our Big Vegan Breakfast to power your day to a Coconut Spicy
Rundown Curry with sweet Potato and yams. Move on to try our special
Plantain Lasagne to our Guava Plantain Balls, you will be more than satisfied.

Our Powerhouse Juices

Feel the Caribbean vibes with one of our natural juices: Tropical Bliss, Papaya
Mint Twist or try a Revitalise. Immerse yourself in one of our powerhouse
smoothies – Irish Moss filled with amazing nutrients and ranked as one of the
highest superfoods, Peanut Punch, or a Coconut Brew – served all day and

something special? treat yourself to our signature house-made natural drink,
Sorrel, amazingly refreshing with a cool taste!
