the sweet meadow

We are a vegan cafe in the heart of Echuca, Victoria. 

We have created a beautiful space that we hope inspires people to live more of the sweet life, every day. 

It is through eating in alignment with nature and bringing people together to share food that we can all find the deeper sense of connection we yearn for. 


La Dolce Vita.

La Dolce Vita - Italian for "the sweet life." Whatever it is Italians call it, I'm into it. Loosely translated to mean a life that is full of pleasure and living to the fullest, to see it in person just head to southern Italy in August.

"Don't live the same year 75 times and call it a life."

I remember the ah-ha moment I had when I first read this quote by Robin Sharma. At the time, the idea of creating a vegan eatery had been swirling around in my mind for a while, but it was easier to promise myself that 'one day' I'd do it but right now I didn't have enough money/experience/skills to really go for it.

Recipe - Taco Me Home

Anyone that has been for a visit to a supermarket or food store lately has probably seen what we’ve seen - stock shortages, empty shelves and outright mayhem.

Recipe - Peppermint Slice

This slice gives after dinner mints a whole new meaning.

I love the different textures going on here - chewy base (thanks to the dates and rice malt syrup), smooth creamy filling and crunchy on top.
