I'd dreamt of opening a cafe since forever, and in 2011, we opened vegas & rose in the beautiful city of Ballarat, regional Victoria. We'd moved there earlier that year from Melbourne with our two children both under the age of 3.
Such fun, but so many crazy long hours, and after 5 amazing years we closed the doors to spend time with our young family. You know how it is, chasing that work / life balance thing?!
I couldn't stay away from my love of baking and creating for too long though, and opened the vegas & rose online store in 2018.
I love supporting our local growers, suppliers, and using seasonal produce wherever possible. Big fan of our backyard organic veggie patch too!
Not sure if we'll do the bricks and mortar thing again. Never say never, right? We do love a good pop up event though and you'll find vegas & rose popping up at local foodie events ( which is always super fun! )
During the warmer months we open the vegas & rose little pink door for ice cream sandwiches and coffee frappes! Keep an eye out on our socials for all the details!
Thanks for stopping by!
