AboutUs

OurStory

FacePlant is the brainchild of husband & wife team Pasha & Edey. Having a combined experience of over 50 years in hospitality, they wanted to share their passion and philosophy of a plant based diet that is delicious and fulfilling.

It all began in 2017 down the road on Pakington St in a small arcade, then moving to a corner location again on Pako, and now to this beautiful and historic old Fire House.

Our aim is for your experience to be ‘next level’, and to make you want to FacePlant everything you try.


OurPassion

Edey’s passionate approach to food comes down to 3 goals really:

  • Create unique dishes
  • present them aesthetically & interestingly
  • and most importantly, every single bite be packed with amazing flavours

She prides herself on the details and consistency of all these factors so much that she preps, cooks, and plates every single meal herself.

Pasha, the face and voice standing front and centre at the bar, also prides himself on making every coffee and drink equally exceptional, and when time allows, offers a wealth of knowledge to any seeking great conversation.

Top this off with a vast assortment of truly remarkable house-made sweets by our incomparable pastry chef Gemma, and you have the winning trifecta.


 
  • After months of waiting for Faceplant to reopen I was not disappointed. The new premises are superb and their food and coffee is on point. In fact, it was that good I had a serious dose of contentment after my meal. You know the type, just like that wave of contentment that washes over you after a good root. Yes it's that good.👌

  • Loved the food and staff were extremely friendly. Smoked tofu was delish, and special mention to the absolutely incredible pastry chef that created the cinnamon scrolls and donuts. Highly recommended

  • Incredibly well considered menu of plant-based food. So hard to choose, everything sounded amazing, will have to go again and again! The decor is lovely and earthy. After an accidental spill the staff were very generous and looked after us well. Took a piece of cake take away and I've been thinking about it ever since (drool)!
