Coco Bliss takes over Press on James Street

James Street has been given a health kick this week as the superfood savants behind Bulimba’s Coco Bliss Superfood Bar take the reins at Press.

The charming little kiosk perched on the edge of James Lane has proven that if you build something positive and believe in what you do, the punters will come. It was with disappointment that locals eyed the ‘closed for renovations’ sign in recent weeks, but as the new management rolled open the windows and unveiled a fresh new menu, all was forgiven. Candice Collier and Mellita Rayner – the two livewires behind Coco Bliss Super Food Bar in Bulimba, The Lazy Elephant lunchtime delivery service and formerly Happy Little Dumplings – have now brought a healthy new slant to Press. Many of the old Press favourites remain, but they’re now joined by Coco Bliss signatures like the nutrient-packed pink pitaya bowl.

Health-focused munchers will be seduced by a large range of gluten-free, dairy-free, raw, vegan and refined sugar-free nosh, while those in need of a sweet temptation can also meet their match. Start the day with a chia seed pudding, green smoothie or Genovese coffee teamed with coconut milk, Bonsoy or Barambah Organics milk. Fend off the daytime grumbles with body-happy treats like gluten-free banana and walnut bread, ‘clean’ cupcakes, fruit or savoury muffins, or Jocelyn’s Provisions’ beloved chocolate and macadamia brownies. Lunch options fill the belly and tick all the nutritional boxes, with a changing selection of salads like quinoa with roast vegetables, rice paper rolls, generous chicken sandwiches and flavour-packed roast pumpkin and chickpea patties. Press is also now open on Sundays.
