Foodies interested in healthy, gluten-free, sustainable cafes have reason to rejoice after The Good Place recently opened outside Kawana Shoppingworld.
My Kitchen Rules semi-finalist Scott Gooding and business partner James McGovern are the brains behind the venue.
Focused on a farm-to-plate experience, The Good Place uses local suppliers Walkers Seafood Mooloolaba, Forage Farms in Kybong, Maleny Dairies, Your Mates Brewing and Warana’s Kai Coffee beans.
“We are always acutely aware of our food sovereignty and take special care to select proteins which are sustainable and ethically raised,” Mr Gooding says.
“We believe in doing business with kindness, carefully selecting suppliers and business partners who align to our vision of ‘doing good’.”
The cafe caters to food allergies and intolerances and has vegan-friendly options.
- The Good Place ethos includes fair trade coffee, MSC-certified seafood (caught without the use of nets), regenerative farming and produce sourced locally and ethically.
- For every kilo of coffee sold, The Good Place plants a tree through onetreeplanted.org, as it continues to work towards becoming a carbon-negative business.
