Atherstone’s Local Vegan Café: Oh My Greens
Melton South’s vegan café, Oh My Greens, is a family affair. Cindy and William run the business with their kids James (head chef), Joel (James’ understudy), Peter (front of house and beverages) and Irene (marketing). Regulars will be pleased to know that Irene also just gave birth to a baby boy named Gaven. Head to Oh My Greens for delicious vegan cakes, burgers, soups, pastas and Southeast Asian inspired fare.
“We sell 100% vegan delicacies. I would say we offer a good East and West style fusion to satisfy different palates,” says Irene. “Our burgers are a hit because most of the patties are made in house, including the vegan sauces. And don’t forget our sought-after vegan cupcakes.”
Irene says Oh My Greens also has gluten free menu items to assist those in Melton South with special dietary requirements. “Some of our family members are gluten free so we are used to whipping up gluten free meals back home. We made sure that there is at least one gluten free item in each of our menu categories.”
Other food allergies are also catered for at Oh My Greens, reassures Irene. “As we are vegan, we only use soy milk for our coffee and tea. For customers with specific allergies, we always work with them and can even go to the extent of customising a dish for them. We have one customer that comes back every day for his customised regular!”
Oh My Greens has baby high chairs and utensils just for children. They are also in the midst of creating a brand new vegan kids menu. If you have kids of the four legged furry variety, Oh My Greens also has three outdoor tables where dogs are very welcome.
If you are after a vegan meal but don’t feel like eating out, Oh My Greens can also provide takeaway vegan food. You can also save time by phoning ahead to place your orders so it’s all ready when you arrive. Or if you don’t feel like leaving the house, they can provide home delivery to Atherstone for orders of $60 ($15 delivery fee applies).
Oh My Greens can also make customised vegan cakes for special occasions and events so that everyone can enjoy the dessert at your next party.
