Head Barista

About Deliciously Ella

Our brand has 3 simple values: Live better. Be useful. Make veggies cool.

What started of as a blog by Ella to help herself live better has grown into an app, recipe books, supermarket products and a deli - all with these 3 values at the heart of everything.

Our deli is the home of what we do and somewhere we want people from all walks of life to feel welcome and experience the joys of eating tasty vegetables.  Located just off Oxford Street means it can get very busy at times but we like to keep the atmosphere upbeat and vibrant! Our upstairs area is bright and airy with an open kitchen, beautiful deli counter and a big sharing table. And our comfy basement seating is often a cosy spot to sit and work or catch up with friends over a coffee.
