Kinfolk - give a fork

After a long trip back from the airport, I went searching for that one essential ingredient to every Melburnian's day; solid, artisan, kick-starter coffee. In a tired decaffeinated state, I dragged my bags from Spencer Street station into Kinfolk cafe on Bourke Street.

A lovely man took my bags to stow them, directed me to a cosy table, poured me a glass of water, and took my request for a cafe latte pronto! This is Kinfolk hospitality! If you didn't already know, Kinfolk is not only a cafe, but a social enterprise, which means all the profits support community projects locally and in developing countries, and many of the 'staff' are volunteers.

The coffee, food and service are first class and there is definite 'warmth' and an abundance of happiness at Kinfolk, in the staff and the cuisine which transfers to the customers. For breakfast, I ordered the 64 degree egg with kale, avocado mash, cured maple bacon, garnished with beautiful eatable flowers. Divine! Take yourself to Kinfolk and improve your karma, or why not volunteer? Support a movement that actually 'gives a fork'.
