To say that SMÄK is a PP favourite is an understatement. We might as well move in. From golden lattes to kick-start the day, to mid-morning protein hits, to business lunches and team meetings, SMÄK is the second home of Premium Performance HQ…with good reason!
At SMÄK (taken from the Norwegian word for “taste”) the approach to everything is fresh. From the interiors to the food, Scandi-minimalism reigns supreme. The polished concrete, indoor greenery, pendant light fittings and high ceilings create a calming yet vibrant space; nothing short of a nutritional oasis just off one of Melbourne’s busiest precincts, Chapel Street.
This crisp and clean aesthetic extends to every dish at SMÄK. With a focus on all things healthy, the food is inventive and stunningly presented. Each option is carefully crafted and the menu changes often enough to keep you interested. From acai bowls and matcha waffles to the ‘big brekky’ and corn fritters, the food is virtuous yet satisfying.
Founders Tom Fissenden and Callum Ellis are behind this health-conscious gem, which they created because of their desire for a feel-good space with simple, delicious and healthy meals. This approach extends to the entire SMÄK team, whose friendly and helpful service is just enough without getting in the way of your brunch.
Adding to the feel-good ethos, SMÄK strives for sustainability by supporting local growers and suppliers, and donates 1 per cent of all sales to Motor Neurone Disease Research. Like we needed further convincing!
