We’re a lucky bunch on the Sunshine Coast. We’ve got the best beaches, best weather, and direct access to some of the greatest produce in the world. So it would only stand to reason that a renowned chef would make our slice of paradise his very own home.
And that’s exactly what is happening. Alejandro Cancino, of Urbane fame, is moving to the Coast and opening up his own vegan cafe. This has to be the most exciting culinary news we’ve delivered to you all year.
With a large and ever-growing vegan community on the Coast, Cancino has decided to make the sea change not only for lifestyle reasons, but also for ethical ones. He is an ardent vegan and has now decided that he no longer will work or serve dishes containing animal products.
We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Cancino will be making the bold and ambitious move to Kuluin, a tiny suburb near Maroochydore, and opening a small cafe that will seat 30 diners. The cafe is set to open in September and we can barely wait!
The cafe will be casual, unpretentious and bursting with plant-based creations that will leave our taste-buds dancing. The cafe will serve brekky and lunch. There's even talk of an adjoining restaurant further down the track. Stay tuned for deets.
