One by One
One by one….. I’m working through Melbourne’s best cafes. My latest adventure has brought me to Keilor, a suburb north-west of the city. It’s where David, Joseph and Marco opened up their café, One by One, over 2 years ago. What began as a pop-up coffee spot, serving coffee through a 1m x 1m window, has now grown into a full café. The name is a nod to their humble beginning; a time when they planned what is today, a welcoming café designed by a young carpenter who was a customer at that time. The menu offers a ‘modern Australian café fare’, with the usual favourites high on the list. There’s the colourful Acai bowl garnished with protein balls; Eggs Benny with seeded mustard hollandaise; and a selection of salads and burgers for those feeling like a wholesome lunch. Credit goes to the chefs for this work of art in a bowl. I definitely appreciated the fresh fruits and house made protein balls. It’s wonderful to see more and more cafes championing gluten free and vegan dishes as staple parts of their offerings. Coffee by Ona was on point, with a natural Ethiopian to match the fruity breakfast bowl. Find them at 37 McFarlane Street, Keilor.
