The cafe that cares.

We ensure the best taste and quality by preparing each meal to order by hand (that means no shortcuts like microwaves). This is because we believe that real, whole foods provide the best source of nourishment for your body.

You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy plant-based food (although we certainly encourage it!). There are many great benefits to living a plant-based lifestyle, not the least of which is the taste factor!

The Sunshine Coast Cafe with a difference.

Dine with us in the café, or take a little something away with you. We have two great locations so no matter where you are on on the Sunshine Coast, Cafe Nurcha is just around the corner.

When you see our offerings, you will be spoiled for choice and struggle to decide! So before your visit, be prepared and take a look at our menus online.

Be warned though, there’s so much good stuff on there it’s almost impossible to choose!


Bruno De Paula

Nurcha Family, we would like to introduce you to Bruno – Our Head Chef!

This is the man behind so many of our delicious dishes here at Nurcha! Although you may not always see him front and centre, Bruno has been creating magic in the kitchen for a few years now at Nurcha.

As a vegan himself, Bruno understands how important each and every detail is – the colours, the textures and of course the flavours.

Bruno says that his secret in the kitchen is love.  He makes sure that the feeling of love from his heart goes into every dish he creates.  Every stir, every pour, every slice; it all comes from the heart.  Knowing that he is creating a good experience for people is the cherry on the top for our Bruno!

 Nurcha don’t use a deep fryer or microwave, and Bruno loves this! It forces him to get creative.

“I love Nurcha for so many reasons; the customers, environment, animals, respect and more,” says Bruno enthusiastically.

Bruno’s positive, hard-working attitude is motivating and uplifting to be around for all of the team.

The Nurcha Ethos

We understand that in today’s society, it is hard to maintain an earth-friendly approach at all times. But we need change. We need to make a difference. How do we achieve this? We do so by TRYING.

We don’t need a handful of people doing sustainable living perfectly, we need MILLIONS of people doing it imperfectly.


We walk the walk AND talk the talk. We live by our values. What you see is what you get – from our staff, to our food, to our product ranges.


From our products, to our processes, to our packaging and even our decor choices, sustainability is always our close to our heart. We aim to do no harm. It is a hard call, but we work hard to achieve this in all that we do and offer.


Nurcha sources food products locally whenever possible. We collaborate with local businesses and producers who have values that align with ours. Our lifestyle product offerings are always produced ethically and we carefully curate this before adding any new brands to our range.


We all seek to find our “tribe”. Diversity, tolerance and community are what we strive for. We embrace all beings and wish happiness to all. Everybody is welcome at Nurcha.


We believe that to create change, we must accept change. We embrace new technologies in a bid to evolve and forever improve on our sustainability practices and the footprint we leave on the earth.


We carefully select our product ranges and menu items to ensure that they can be enjoyed by all. Our planet can never benefit if only a small few can afford to live sustainably or eat vegan. Our pricing structures are designed to be within reach of everyone, regardless of budget.

delicious choices for everyone

But I’m not vegan?

Well, why not?! Just kidding! We understand that everybody has the freedom to make their own life choices. Free will is so very important.

BUT, there’s no harm in giving it a go. You might be surprised when you sit down to a 100% plant-based menu for the very first time.

We regularly collect the empty plates of those who eat animal products to choruses of “that was not what I was expecting at all” and “I didn’t even notice that there was no meat”.

Veganism is, of course a lifestyle that we are passionate about and encourage people to embrace. But if you’re not quite “there” yet, or even if you’re nowhere near, we would love for you to visit us and learn about all of the beautiful jewels a plant-based diet has to offer.

We promise you that you won’t be disappointed. If you are a foodie, an explorer, or an adventurer wanting to embrace new experiences, challenge yourself to enjoy a vegan lunch or dinner at one of our Sunshine Coast cafes. And prepare to have your mind blown!
