About A Boy & A Girl | Newstead

This isn’t just about a boy and a girl. This is also about simplicity, honesty and goodness.

The day Steve met Jodi was the day an exciting new chapter of their lives began. The boy has almost three decades of experience in the hospitality industry and is a very knowledgeable collector of fine wines. The girl is a nutritionist and has a genuine love of simple and natural good food. The boy and the girl fit perfectly well - personally and professionally. So they tied the knot the day before the grand opening of the cafe - and opened a new food business with a promise.

About A Boy & A Girl is the coming together of Steve and Jodi’s skills, knowledge and passions. This organic wholefood market, cafe and cellar is committed to spreading the word about healthy food and excellent wines, ciders and beers. Steve and Jodi understand that everybody is unique. We have our own paths to wellness and happiness, so they carefully source a wide range of nutritious food, drinks and wellness products for their customers.

Whether you need vegan food, biodynamic wine or chemical free handmade soap - About A Boy & A Girl has it in stock for you. You can even get nutrition advice and wine masterclasses in house.

Retail Space Design

About A Boy & A Girl truly keeps the comfort and happiness of their customers in mind. Do you need goji berries and coconut oil to strengthen your immune system? You can find these in the market’s longspan shelves. If you are vegan or lactose-intolerant, you’ll enjoy specially made ice cream in the market’s freezer.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables fill their merchandise refrigerators. All of these are fresh and pesticide free, grown by local farmers or home gardeners. Food Strategy’s designers specified retail shelving and countertops with open cabinetry to maximise space in the market - every inch has a purpose.

One wall has a wine box that displays About A Boy & A Girl’s curated collection of organic, biodynamic, vegan and preservative free wines. Are you a thirsty diner? You’ll love About A Boy & A Girl’s Wine Wednesdays. If you prefer beer or cider, there’s another display case in the dining area.

You can enjoy nutritious meals in the cafe’s dining area, which has booth seating indoors. Two more cashiers process purchases before the administration area.

Commercial Kitchen Design

Customers of About A Boy & A Girl can order delicious food fresh from the kitchen. Refrigerated display cases showcase baked goods that are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian or paleo, such as super seed banana bread, apricot granola and carrot cake.

A specialty grinder and coffee machine brew organic coffee beside the cashier. Keeping true to the culture of the place, you can have almond or soy milk in your coffee without extra charge. Smoothies or juices, made in high powered blenders, will make you go back again and again. We personally recommend Green Goddess - About A Boy & A Girl’s special blend of bananas, pineapple, spinach and coconut water. Several types of storage equipment are available in this area. A refrigerator and freezer are tucked under the counter.

Are you planning to open an organic market or cafe? Contact Food Strategy for consultation and an excellent commercial kitchen or retail design.
