Candice Kiss – Gather & Feast, Caboolture

Originally from Bundaberg, Candice knew there was nothing else she was ever going to do except work with food. Upon leaving school at 16, Candice moved 12 hours away from home to the Whitsundays where she worked in an array of restaurants from small dining to large franchises. Before even completing her apprenticeship, Candice was offered the opportunity to be head chef of a restaurant in Adelaide before moving on to do a seasonal stint in Cape York where she learned to work with native ingredients such as Green Ants, Kakadu plum and desert limes.

From Cape York, Candice settled into a café in Toowoomba for 9 years before opening her own vegan food truck. After this was received exceptionally well, the next step was obvious - her own restaurant. For 2.5 years now, Gather & Feast has been serving up an indulgent brunch-based menu catering to vegans, sugar-free, keto, gluten-free and your everyday sweet tooth's! Annie Lane, her second café, opened in April and is doing just as expected - wonderfully delicious!

Address: 7 James St, Caboolture

Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 6:30 am – 2:30 pm, Saturday 7:30 am – 2:30 pm
