After their opening night just a few weeks ago, Home Vegan Bar are the newest addition and flagship location to the Home Pressed Juices family. A quick two minute walk from Southern Cross station, the new kids on the block are decked out with not only a fixed menu but a fresh salad bar, vegan wine on tap and a range of raw desserts. They’re currently open from 7am-4pm, but if you’re not quite up for day drinking on your lunch break, their hours will be extending to 9pm from the 1st of August.

With a feature wall of mother earth, fresh greenery and modern style booths, the calming atmosphere Home Vegan Bar exudes will have you at your most relaxed state, eating and sipping on a range of cruelty free goods. Not only are the team behind this establishment conscious about the ingredients used in their menu, but in choosing to have wine on tap they’re looking after our environment as well. Serving the perfect glass of wine every time, the premium wine cylinders you’ll find at this location from ‘Tap.’ have helped eliminate 190,3222 bottles from landfill thus far, and the refill process used at Home Vegan Bar is zero waste. Although there’s only wine on the menu at the moment, come summertime the bar will have cold pressed cocktails and an exciting array of alcohol that align with the companies’ values.

With a strong focus on nutrition and utilising plant based ingredients to their full potential , the menu is centered around a fresh salad bar, a simple and wholesome lunch option that differs daily. We recommend the cheesy broccoli and cauliflower, a mouth-watering twist on the normally dairy-filled classic, and there’s always an option to add protein to your mix such as tofu or falafel. If you’d rather something warm, they’ve covered base with a range of hearty curries and soups , and their fixed menu comprises of dishes such as a big vegan breakfast to help you power through your day.

The Workout Warrior smoothie is a favourite among staff, combining almond milk, rice protein, almond butter, mesquite, cacao, maca, cinnamon, dates, banana, and vanilla for a touch of sweetness. You’ll also find to-go juices which are cold pressed at the bar’s external facility and stocked in house to purchase, and you’ll get $1 off if you bring your bottle back to reuse. Operations Manager Sophia strongly believes in an ethos that minimises the establishment’s carbon footprint as much as possible, making your experience dining here one to feel good about.

All of the house made desserts you’ll find at Home Vegan Bar are raw, gluten and refined sugar free, made with only organically sourced ingredients. The Caramel slice will melt in your mouth, mirroring the iconic dessert without the guilt that’s so often felt afterwards. Sharing the dessert cabinet are more raw treats from Manuko, and you’ll also find a small range from CBD newcomer’s Weirdoughs, who supply grab and go pastries such as the infamous chocolate croissant.
