The Healing Power of Food

It is no surprise that when we reflect on the moments in our life that are most meaningful, the connection of loved ones and food are often accompanying. Embracing this belief, we are endeavouring to redefine the role that memorial parks play in the lives of our community. Providing an intimate and caring environment for family and friends to come together, Café Vita offers a variety of culturally & dietary diverse menus. Whether celebrating a loved one at an after funeral/memorial service or enjoying a relaxed afternoon at our cafe, we look forward to sharing our love for food with you.
