A new Cafe, selling speciality coffee and organic food has opened its doors in Hervey Bay. With the name, ‘The Front Room’, it certainly is a great place to come together. Standing alongside the Holistic Healing Haven, Matt wanted all of the furnishings low key and bought locally to create a low energy feel, just like you would find in your lounge-room at home.
Matt Suckling is the front man as Owner, Barista and Vegan Chef. Matt said that, “I could see there was a much needed gap in on the Fraser Coast Food Scene. This is my first time in business, and it is a dream to own a cafe”.
About seven years ago Matt healed himself from depression by studying and researching nutrition. He got strict and changed his way of eating. Matt would now like the opportunity to pass on what he has learnt.
“We are hoping to teach people to be more conscious of their food choices. Eating organic gives you more energy throughout the day, and gives you that light and satisfied feeling”.
The menu is constantly evolving, at this point in time it is a light menu offering Acai Bowls, these are the cafe’s signature dish full of nuts, berries, granola, yoghurt, coconut, and a few other healthy delights. There is also a range of raw organic sweet treats, and beverages. More will be offered in time as the staff find their feet. One of the crew, Rhian is just completing her Nutritional Medicine Degree, and has also created an app called, ‘I got real’.
Holistic Healing Haven are loving their new location since their move from Fraser St, Urangan to their current location at 399 The Esplanade at Torquay. There is a definite feeling of community as you walk through the doors. You will find a shared space full of Healing Practitioners, massage and beauty, therapists, and a gift-shop. Make sure that you pop in for a visit.
