Sitting in Kinfolk is like sitting in a birdcage, books, vines, birds, cages and miniature paintings dotted throughout the cafe. If you look carefully into the vines you might even find a mini windmill. Despite being near the hustle and bustle of Spencer St Kinfolk is a serene cafe staffed by volunteers and also donates all profits to development projects.
Kinfolk does feature my greatest fear: communal tables, however its a small cafe and with a such a relaxed, cool vibe it wasn’t stressful at all. With wooden tables and chairs, it is a piece of the country in the city.
The Kinfolk menu changes according to the ingredients they have available, but if the breakfasts Miss. J and I had this morning are anything to go by, the breakfasts are good.
I had the ‘Smashed Avocado, Feta and Capers with a Fried Egg’, it was delicious, maybe a little heavy on the dill, but such a great combination of feta and smashed avocados.
Miss. J had the Brioche French Toast with Smashed Avocado, Mushies, Asparagus and Crispy Pork’. It was something she’d had before and would have again and again. The brioche blends nicely with the avocado and mushies whilst the asparagus and crispy pork add a nice contrasting texture.
I loved everything about Kinfolk and I can’t wait to breakfast there again.
And, do we want to stay for breakfast? Everyone should head to Kinfolk not just for breakfast, but to support some great development projects
