Miss Green’s colourful vegetarian dishes, vibrant smoothies and tasty salad bar options have generated a passionate following in Red Hill and beyond. Miss Green Red Hill has been serving up fresh salads made on site daily, like the popular peanut noodle and Moroccan spiced cauliflower salad. However, in April, Connor Sahely and Maddie Rotar took over the reins from Adam and Michelle, of Johnny Ripe Pastries, where Maddie had worked for five years. They’ve continued to serve up the rainbow with gusto ever since.
At just 19 and 20 years old respectively, Maddie and Connor certainly know how to delight the tastebuds of their customers. The salads on offer change seasonally, and customers can build their own salad bowl to create their own delicious combination. While you’re there, pick up a cold-pressed juice or smoothie to go with your bowl of goodness. Locally made muffins, homemade dips and chilli, nachos, avocado and mushroom pesto toast offer hearty winter warmers — not to mention a nourishing soup of the day and fresh homemade vegetable pasties made daily — in addition to a sweet treat of homemade cashew cream and baked pears.
Their wholefood menu is vegan; however, coffee options include cow’s milk. Incidentally, their coffee of choice is Little Rebel Coffee, and customers are offered a 50c discount if they bring their own cup.
With the whole menu designed to be taken away in bio-packaging, it’s perfect for those hectic days. Or sit back on the benches next to the vivid mural by Mornington Peninsula artist Meredith Gaston. With gluten-free and refined sugar-free options, you won’t want to miss this up-and-coming health food café. Maddie never stops inventing, so you’re sure to discover a different item on the menu every two weeks, and with a new menu predicted to be released in spring, this foodie destination will become your new local.
