In early 2015, after operating for several years at the Sunday Manly Creative Markets from Apple – the 1972 Kombi Ute converted into a mobile juice bar – Cathy, Mark and their daughters Lilly and Olive, bit the bullet and opened a bricks and mortar shop in the heart of Manly Harbour Village at 45 Cambridge Parade.
For the last four years, Love Juice Superfood Bar, Manly has been providing healthy alternates such Acai Bowles, Super Smoothies, Cold Pressed Juices and Vegan Treats. The menu was predominantly vegan, raw, gluten free and free from refined sugar and anything artificial. The frequent queues waiting to order gave some indication of what Manly locals thought of Cathy’s efforts.
Two years later they opened a second store at Cleveland.
Unfortunately, after operating for nearly 5 years, seven days a week, health reasons have dictated a sale of both businesses. Thank you, Cathy, Mark, Lilly and Olive for your healthy, friendly contribution to Manly. You will all be missed.
Lucky for us all, a superfood business will continue under the national franchise brand of ‘Bare Naked Bowls’. Call in and say hi to Casey Clark and welcome her to Manly Harbour Village.
