Our Owner


Purple opened her store in 2015 but has been with the Leaf Family since 2008 when the first Leaf Café was opened in North Sydney.

Purple is a bubbly character that lives by the rules of go hard or go home. She’s a funny, passionate and caring soul, which is why she has such a big fan base at The Ponds! Purple works hard to keep all her customers happy. When she’s not busy working, Purple loves to travel. Her next dream holiday destination would be to South America where she can experience their food, culture and coffee farms. Being a barista and café owner, it would be a truly enlightening experience to see how the beans are cultivated and then sold!”
