Former hatted, world-class chef Tomislav heads up the kitchen of Summer Hill’s newest café, Soul Tree Café, promising a variety of healthy and hearty dishes made with a whole lot of soul. The café’s open and relaxed interiors create a welcoming atmosphere, making for the perfect addition to Summer Hill’s Flour Mill precinct.
Soul Tree Café is the brainchild of entrepreneur Suz Gursahaney, who set out to create a warm and inviting eatery in the Inner West’s Summer Hill. Together with Tomislav, the team will be serving up a menu that focuses on the Summer Hill community and pays respect to Suz’s Middle Eastern background.
Customers can expect dishes such as baked Turkish eggs with baked organic eggs, braised chickpeas, tomato & oregano harissa paste and sheep’s milk labneh; a breakfast-style plate that focuses on a picnic experience with soft boiled egg, chickpea falafel, smashed avocado, tatashe chilli relish and rye caraway; and, of course, there’s something notable on the menu for the sweet tooth – the French toast with cinnamon sugar, blackberries, black figs, freeze-dried mandarin and Golden Gaytime ice-cream.
Soul Tree will be serving up a Kaffeina ‘UBlend’ coffee blend known as ‘The Soul Tree Blend’ – a nod to Suz’s heritage, combining beans from five different countries including Brazil, Costa Rica, India, Papua New Guinea and Kenya. Soul Tree is the only café in Sydney to stock this specific coffee blend.
Soul Tree Café is located on the grounds of The Flour Mill that arrived in Summer Hill in 1922, and its rich history provides the perfect place to build a strong community where locals can catch up and share stories over coffee and delicious bites.
Designed by owner Suz, the light and bright space features grey stone, natural timbers, mosaic tiles and white walls. The fit-out creates a vibrant mood that showcases the artworks, furnishings and mural.
“We wanted to create a café with an amazing food and beverage offering that is focused on the community. Our goal is to become the epicentre of Summer Hill and be affectionately known as “The Local,” says owner Suz Gursahaney.
Soul Tree Café is a contemporary, homey café hangout for Summer Hill locals, workers, visiting tourists, families, students and the health conscious. Soul Tree Café is open for all-day breakfast and lunch, Monday to Sunday from 7am–3pm.
