Café Volonte: The wellness brand opening across the city


Combining expertise to launch Volonteì

Meet the duo who combined their nutrition and fitness expertise to launch Volonteì.

Revolutionising the capital’s wellness spaces and featured as one of ‘London’s Best Studios to workout at in’ nutritionist and Le Cordon Bleu trained Vidushi Binani and fitness professional Haylene Ryan-Causer co-founded the hybrid foodie, fitness brand that is opening sites across the city.  

Ingeniously combining their knowledge, the flagship in Chelsea which opened in April 2022 was the realisation of their inclusive wellness concept combining the café with the boutique fitness studio. In September 2023 Vidushi and Haylene opened their second café only site in the heart of Piccadilly. The wholesome haven has transformed the iconic streets’ healthy food scene, offering a nutritionist approved menu of grab-and-go delights that help to make smart choices easy. Looking ahead this Spring the female co-founders are excited to launch their anticipated third site.

The name Volonteì, (translating into the French feminine noun for ‘willpower’) is inspired by their ethos of feminine strength and follows their belief that optimum wellbeing is achieved through a life of abundance rather than restriction. Celebrating all food groups, the café is an all-inclusive food experience with no food group side-lined. 

Breakfast from the Le Cordon Bleu trained founder includes Whipped Egg Omelette, Chunky Breakfast Fritters, and Greek Avo Toast, whilst lunch dishes such as a Salmon Sake Bowl or Thai Bangkok Bowl. Meanwhile, the boutique Energy Studio has been created from Haylene’s belief that the future of fitness studios should build community-led spaces that draw on deeper human connections.

Haylene personally trained Vidushi, nurturing a bond years before they became business partners. It is this personal relationship, combined with their contrasting expertise and ethnicities that inspired the female duo to create the future-thinking wellbeing space for thoughtful fitness, supported by nourishing dishes.
