There are very few things that evoke the same thrill as a child in the middle of summer, hearing the distant tune of the Mr. Whippy van rolling down your street.
Nevertheless, Laki Papadopoulos and Mark Price from Transformer Fitzroy and Vegie Bar are recapturing this excitement for everyone to enjoy with their latest Brunswick Street venture, Girl & Boys. If this wasn’t enough to get your mouth watering, they have also opened a new take-away branch of Vegie Bar under the same roof.
Dedicated to dishing up decadent but healthy plant-based treats, Girls & Boys is Melbourne’s newest takeaway vegan dessert bar. While still dedicated to slinging classic raw slices, cakes, smoothies and spiced mylks to Melbourne’s vegan population, it is mainly drawing a particular focus on vegan soft-serve ice cream, gelato and thickshakes. With the help of pastry chef, Jackson Magner, Laki and Mark are sticking to their vegan, refined sugar-free roots and scooping up delicious icy treats such as caramel and miso gelato, and coconut-based soft serves with chocolate raspberry topping.
Laki and Mark’s new venue is the gift that keeps on giving. Under this same roof is the new Vegie Bar Take Away, featuring all of your favourite Vegie Bar dishes, ready to eat at home on the couch in your ugg boots and trackies…oh, and it also delivers.
Anyone who has walked past Brunswick Street’s original Vegie Bar at 7pm any night of the week knows just how busy that place can be. The boys are on a serious, and seemingly very successful, mission to encourage more people to eat healthy vegetarian food that is not only kind to their bodies but also to the planet. For them, this extension was a natural step in growing their business.
Open all summer from 11am until late, Girls & Boys and Vegie Bar Take Away are a perfect match made in vegetable heaven, placed in prime position in the heart of Fitzroy.
