Suz has always believed that behind all the chaos in life, there is a calling for Peace and Love. She is often described as a Phoenix rising from the ashes with her instincts as a natural leader, knowledge and passion to succeed. Soul Tree Cafe is her brain-child that reflects her life’s journey both literally and metaphorically. It is the result of her desire to have a creative corner where one can experience peace and warmth in the company of a glorious cuppa coffee and enjoy a chuckle over a glass of bubbly.
It all started with a dream of creating a space that brings the phrase “home to homey” to life; a place where we get to experiment with our creative ideas to deliver healthy organic food using high quality produce. Enter: Soul Tree Café, where gourmet food meets a peaceful ambience.
We decided to place the cafe on the grounds of The Flour Mill that arrived in Summer Hill in 1922. Its landmark silos appeared in the 1950s as the capacity grew and has been the reason behind some of Australia’s favourites loaves- until operations wound up in 2009. With its rich history that complements the beautiful Summer Hill surrounding, it’s the perfect place to give the Soul Tree Café its chance to build a strong community with their own stories of bonhomie over coffee and bites.
The taste behind the final cup of coffee is the result of its origins. At Soul Tree, we consider our coffee to be our pride and that reflects on every cup we serve. This is why we partnered with the Kaffeina Group, a famous boutique roster from Coburg Melbourne that started in 2014 to give cafes and coffee shops an opportunity to design their own signature UBlend. Called the 102 Blend, ours is an exclusive blend of beans imported from five different countries of Brazil, Costa Rica, India, PNG, and Kenya. It is a full-bodied coffee designed to give you a rich mouthfeel with its tasting notes of toffee, butter, green apple along with a touch of spice, that leaves you with a lingering finish.”
