Kinfolk cafe- Melbourne cafe

Kinfolk cafe is a charming little cafe located at 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne, on the Southern Cross Station end. It is a social business, similar to Streat, with customers being able to choose to fund various social enterprises.

First I want to write about the interior. According to their website, it was completed by volunteers and they’ve done a great job. I especially love the feature wall, with small canvases of birds roosting on a huge black tree. There are also gentle reminders that all of the staff are volunteers except for management, which makes me appreciate the good food and coffee all the more.

Kinfolk also support four different project partners, with punters being able to nominate which one they support by placing a coffee bean in marked jars. It’s a similar system to Grill’ds new system of nominating charities for your support, and it’s a nice way of feeling involved with how your money is going to help.

The food menu changes daily, but my personal favourite is the Convent Bakery pies from the Abbotsford Convent. They’re a bit pricey for a meat pie and green salad, but the overall experience is totally worth it.

Their website is here.
