If you need convincing that the vegan revolution on the Sunshine Coast is still at an all-time high, yesterday’s opening of the new Soul Kitchen Bakery is the definitive proof.
Opening their original pop-up in Maroochydore back in 2018, locals were devastated when the team closed up shop late last year. But after countless calls from old customers, begging them to create a permanent storefront, Soul Kitchen Bakery owners Shirley and Hugh Forster found the perfect space to re-launch their dream in their hometown of Buderim.
Following three months of hardcore renovations, the new Soul Kitchen Bakery officially threw open its doors yesterday and it was no surprise, that vegans flocked to feast on the all-vegan bakery’s sweets and check out the new premises.
Eclectic and quirky, this much-loved bakery offers everything we've come to know and love at a ‘usual’ bakery sans the animal products.
The range of vegan and gluten-free products at Soul Kitchen Bakery are extensive with both savoury and sweet offerings to be gorged on. Think: doughnut holes, Oreo cheesecake, Snickers cupcakes, lemon meringue pies, ginger nut cookies, blueberry lemon muffins, burnt caramel blondies and their very special Soul Brownies. You can even order a whole damn cake.
If your sweet tooth is missing, don’t fret, the team has introduced a bunch of café-style dishes to their menu, including a raw burrito, stew of the day and a delicious vegan nachos dish.
The bakery’s interior is super colourful and a mash-up of vintage mirrors, mismatched chairs and street art. You’ll find more seating here than the last spot, with tables both inside and outside for those who want to pop by, order a sweet, sip on a Montville Coffee, and stay a while.
A revolutionary business for the Sunshine Coast, Soul Kitchen Bakery is located smack bang in the middle of Buderim. And the best news of all is, you can bring your non-vegan friends here and they wouldn't even know the difference.
