Craving some organic sweet treats and delicious vegan food? Get excited–Sweet Bones is bringing us another café and bakery! This time, in Scullin.
Known for their delicious menu options and oh-so-cool vibe, the Canberra café and bakery changed the face of food in the capital in 2012 with its hand-crafted vegan menu – and with a cult following for their cinnabons alone, the announcement of their new northside location could not have come at a better time.
Opening at the Scullin shops in early 2022, co-owner Emily Brindley says the new store will still have Sweet Bones’ iconic menu items like the Smashed Avo Toast and The Notorious B.I.G but it will also have some hot new additions.
“We will have a fryer…We’ll have doughnuts, hot chips and popcorn tofu and things of that nature as well,” says Emily.
While they say a second café was never on their radar after buying in Scullin in 2018, Emily and her husband Russell became incredibly involved in the community, beginning Scullin Traders with the simple goal of revamping the local shops.
After Scullin Traders had to shut their doors due to COVID-19 restrictions, the opportunity to open a new café in the prime location suddenly presented itself and the duo decided to jump at the chance.
“We were supposed to start back in September….now we’ve decided we are fully committed and we’ve just started a demo in the shops,” says Emily.
With more baked goodies on the way, the duo say Sweet Bones Scullin will have more of a community focus compared to their Braddon store as they hope to continue to bring new life to the shops.
“It really was a community effort,” says Emily.
“There’s been a few people who have really been working hard behind the scenes to revitalise the shop…we have two really beautiful murals there and there’s such community involvement with the shops.”
As Emily and Russell get ready to treat Scullin to sweet treats with their iconic funky flair, all we can say is grab your stretchy pants: you’ll need them.
