Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more
Like every second cafe in town, Kinfolk has great food and a focus on superfoods, local producers, and seasonal ingredients. What makes it special, though, is the feel good factor – the cafe donates all (yes, 100%) of its profits to partner charities.
Kinfolk cleverly increases profits by ’employing” volunteers. Patrons also get involved by voting for their preferred charity using the coffee bean system – just drop a coffee bean into the jar bearing your preferred charity’s name. Front runners at the moment are Urban Seed, a charity supporting the homeless, and the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre.
Of course none of this would work if they didn’t have good food, but from what I’ve seen and tasted, this place has the food down pat. My cured ocean trout salad with quinoa, kale, asparagus and pickled onions was very tasty, and so full of superfoods that I felt extra good about myself. Of course, I then went and ruined it by having a salted caramel cookie sandwich later in the day… maybe there’s only so much healthy my body can accept in one day? But I digress.
Too bad my first choice, the avocado smash, was sold out for the day. Could’ve spent another day not saving for a deposit…
