Melbourne’s popular gourmet salad, soups and spuds bar, Famish’d, has recently opened a second café in the reinvigorated St James building, overlooking AMP Square on the corner of Bourke and Williams Street. The offering is delicious and simple – healthy, fresh salads and salad dressings made from seasonal produce, offered from a set menu or by individual design at the salad bar.
The first Famish’d café (on Little Collins Street) was created by Georgia Samuel, an ambitious ex-corporate lawyer who identified a gap in the market for healthy city lunch options. Since opening its doors in 2010, long queues are a common sight and it is easy to understand why.
Reflecting the recent trend toward creative and healthy eating, Famish’d offers an ever-growing menu of interesting salad favourites at reasonable prices.
We were kindly offered the opportunity to sample a Famish'd salad and opted for the “Design-Your-Own” salad which we made by selecting the following options:
1. A Base (or a mixture of Bases);
2. Five salad bar items;
3. One Specialty Item; and
4. A Dressing and a bread selection.
Our salad was well-made and came in a very generous serving size and was made of fresh and delicious ingredients.
With an energetic vibe that is as vibrant, crisp and colourful as the ingredients on offer, Famish’d cafés offer guilt-free lunch options with fast and friendly service. We cannot wait to try more of their healthy, fresh salads!
