TASTE FOR THE GOOD STUFF: James and Kylie Pheils from Mama-P have created a cafe you want to eat at if you really care what's in your food.

TASTE FOR THE GOOD STUFF: James and Kylie Pheils from Mama-P have created a cafe you want to eat at if you really care what's in your food.

Mama-P cafe, located on the Pacific Highway at Charlestown,  is nominated as a finalist in the Excellence in Small Business (-20 FTEs) category at this year’s Lake Macquarie Business Awards.

Specialising in guilt free healthy desserts, vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free options, Mama-P has gone from a hobby at home to a wholesale range then on to their very own flagship store.

Founders James and Kylie Pheils began doing all of this with a purpose.

One of their children developed asthma, eczema and allergies so they decided to get back to basics, cut out processed fake foods and begin to cook from scratch.

“We saw amazing results and wanted to be able to provide the community, especially those with intolerances, allergies, illnesses or personal dietary choices, with the same real food options,” Kylie said.

“There’s a huge demand for healthy living as people are becoming more aware of how food makes them feel.

“We are passionate about not only being able to create healthy options, but have it taste amazing too. 

‘We have incredible staff that share our vision and work so hard.

“We are excited to celebrate this achievement with them. Win or lose, for us it’s all about spreading the word that real food rocks.”
