Simple Café – Where healthy meets delicious

Simple Café specializes in vegan and gluten-free fare and personalized meal plans and nutrition services. Founded by Nicola Cooper, this concept stemmed from Nicola’s own journey to healthy living. It is now a thriving community café advocating the importance of a nutritionally-sound lifestyle.

In conversation with the founder, Nicola Cooper.

The team at Simple Café

What is Simple Café all about and how did it start?

Simple Café started small by us wanting to get healthy ourselves. Our friends and families noticed the benefits of our new healthy lifestyle and asked us to help them out. We are a team of nutritionists and dieticians, so everything on our menu is nutritionally designed. We specialize in healthy snacks, salads, juices, smoothies, protein shakes and natural electrolyte enhancers.

We provide consultation, bespoke meal plans and conduct workshops. Most people shy away from doing a meal plan as there are several misconceptions about it. We aim to educate people on maintaining a nutritionally-analysed diet that helps fuel their health goals in a safe and effective way.

How did you learn about Sapaad and what has been your experience?

As our business developed, we researched POS tech providers who could provide a comprehensive solution to fit our unique operations. We found Sapaad to best complement our meal plans and our day-to-day operational requirements. We can easily set up our custom meal plans in Sapaad and schedule it for weekly or monthly. Meals are auto-printed in the kitchen on the day and prepared fresh.

Sapaad provides easy access to monitoring our sales and revenue with live reports. We love that we can identify sales trends in our business, at a glance!

What’s the one piece of advice you would give to aspiring restaurateurs?

Be prepared to work hard and love what you do! Most importantly, hire employees that care. It reflects in the food and customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.

What are the must-haves at Simple Café?

I reckon our must-haves are the Go Bananas Protein Shake, Cacao Lullabye Smoothie, and Bean Burrito.
