BRISBANE will soon have the opportunity to grab more healthy salads and guilt-free treats on-the-go, with the opening of a second Botanica Real Food in Teneriffe.

Opening in May, the well-known boutique salad bar is another project by experienced chefs and married duo, Alison and Brett Hutley.

Foodies who love whole foods can expect to devour all their favourite salads and pre-packaged breakfasts as well as a few daily baked treats at the second Botanica bar.

Alison and Brett, said that it had been three years since they opened at Red Hill and believe they are ready to take on this new and exciting opportunity.

“All our health conscious customers have been asking for a second shop, so we couldn’t resist their demands,” Alison said.

“We recognise people are time poor and work hard, so we wanted to help them not only eat well but eat fresh real food,” she said.

“Botanica is making life a little leafier and a little easier.”

“All our salads, breakfasts and treats are a simple yet convenient option for people who are looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle or just to eat top notch produce

“The food is a tasty takeaway option whether it is at lunchtime, after work, for those dinner party additions or catering for a work function.”

Botanica now serves 19 unique salads on rotation and will offer a variety of seven at all times as well as a variety of gluten free sweets.

Opening hours will be the same as Red Hill: 8am – 6pm weekdays and 9am – 5pm weekends.
