Actually Passion tree is the original concept, started in 2013 at 103 Elizabeth Street in Brisbane CBD. It started off as a dessert bar that happened to have great patisserie. As time went by and our patisserie, cakes and macarons became so popular, we decided to create a new brand called Passiontree Velvet which specialised in just that. The desserts that we were offering were still really popular so we also kept Passion tree going as well and in tandem, we opened the second Passion tree in Chatswood in Sydney in 2015. The original Passion tree in Brisbane closed in 2018 when the lease expired and the building we were in was earmarked for demolition and redevelopment.
Passion tree has been a strong innovator of desserts, and has been setting trends worldwide, we are started the trend of having brightly coloured ice cream cones, and turning them upside down filled with toppings that spill onto your dessert. It is much copied now, but it was first seen on our pancake stack, hence why we have been written about so many times by Buzzfeed for that item.
Also a first, you may have heard of freakshakes and that whole messy trend, but Passion tree are the originators of the Epic Hot Chocolate (makes more sense), where we put all the tasty compliments to hot chocolate, and stack them on top to make an epic hot chocolate concontion. So popular that its been written about 3 times by the Daily Mail in England.
