Puremelt Vegan Burger

What do you get when an eco-jeweller and a chocolate-making goddess come together with a shared passion for making delicious food, mix it together with a love of all things organic, gluten free, cruelty free and locally sourced?

Mullumbimby’s first and only 100 per cent vegan burger place and chocolate lounge! Not what you were expecting? Neither did we, but we’re excited! Those of us who have been fortunate enough to enjoy the decadent chocolate lovingly hand-crafted by the beautiful Sarah and her lovely crew at Puremelt, are well aware of just how good it is.

What you may not know is that many of the deliciously rich and creamy creations don’t actually contain any dairy. This hidden gem has been low on the vegan radar until now. With a huge range of local, organic milk alternatives for coffee, homemade hot chocolate, dandelion tea, chai, turmeric latte, and milkshakes, a chocolate cookie that some say will change your life, vegan sorbet, of course the famous chocolate, and now a pop-up burger shop of an evening. What more could you want in one place?

The burger night is kicking off on Friday and Saturday evenings, showcasing a range of burgers that Jed promises will be ‘mouth watering and delectable’. With your choice of hand-cut sweet potato or desiree potato fries, the burgers are organic and vegan.

Sarah and Jed say that they want people ‘to be able to fully enjoy your meal knowing you are supporting local farmers, creating a lesser impact on the world’s resources by choosing cruelty free, and nourishing your body with the best organic produce the northern rivers has to offer’.

‘We aspire to do our part in looking after this beautiful planet and all of its inhabitants. We would love it if you would be a part of that too. What better way to help maintain this pristine chunk of Earth we call home than eating organic, ethical, healthy, cruelty-free food?

‘The Pure Melt Chocolate Lounge is paving the path for ethical business ideals, and we are so excited to give Mullumbimby the option to enjoy its first 100 per cent vegan burger place. Though we can’t do it without the love and support of our community, so pop in and be enticed by the delectable handmade chocolate, enjoy a creamy coconut mocha, or indulge yourself on a guilt-free burger of the scrumptious variety,’ they say.

Sarah and Jed would like to invite everyone to come in, meet their friendly crew and see how delicious, easy and affordable eating organic and cruelty free can be.

Puremelt Chocolate Lounge and 100% Vegan Burgers.
53 Stuart St, Mullumbimby. Ph 0406 422 465.
