OUR

PHILOSOPHY

 

Good Food. Good Vibes.

At VIBE we like to keep it simple which is why we focus on those things that matter most to us - good food and good vibes. We believe food should be an experience, always vibrant, truly nourishing, made from plant-based ingredients which have been consciously and ethically sourced. More than a café, we create a space where people can recharge and restore both inside and out. We give people a chance to experience what a healthy lifestyle looks, feels and tastes like.

We challenge the status quo. We’re making healthy, plant-based dining part of popular food culture and accessible to everyone. Plant-based eating is the future and we want to create the best possible version of this through VIBE cafes.

Going back to basics doesn’t need to feel basic. Adopting a more natural way of eating and living is a transformational experience. Honouring what we put in our body and what we take from the planet raises the positive vibrations for all.

More than a café, VIBE shows you a way of life filled with balance, harmony, kindness and compassion.

Our approach to design encourages human connection and fuels the feeling of community and safety. We rise together by lifting others.

VIBE is not just for vegans, it's for the foodie who wants creative, vibrant and nourishing food using high quality ingredients and who cares for their body and environment. 

 

OUR

FOOD ETHOS

 

Food doesn’t just fuel our body, it impacts how we feel throughout the day. What we eat affects our digestive health, skin, energy levels but also our emotional body, our mood and motivation. We wanted a café concept which embraced, wholeheartedly, the powerful connection between mind and body. Our plant based recipes are specifically designed using honest ingredients to extract the maximum nutritional value. We wanted to avoid faux health foods like tofu and focus instead on wholefoods we know are nutrient-rich and good for your mind and body, following the 'earth to table' philosophy and including superfoods and adaptogens in our food and drink. We are obsessed about where our produce comes from and we are working directly with local farmers, ethical suppliers, primarily organic and chemical free to ensure we have the highest quality food we can. 

We embody the 'from scratch' way of cooking, meaning as much as possible is made from scratch in our kitchens, this includes our dressings, milks, cheeses, nut butters, pesto, jams and more. The only thing we don't make ourselves is our bread and kombucha. We are also using techniques such as activating, sprouting, dehydrating and fermenting our foods to again have an abundance of nutrients in our food in the most natural way possible for your body.

At VIBE we believe eating a plant based diet is the optimal way to nourish and care for the body and mind.
