The Frond Cafe
New Farm eatery The Frond Cafe is a community-minded cafe with a charitable lean, offering an ever-changing menu of wholesome options with little-to-no chemicals, preservatives or additives. Currently, the menu is divided into sweet and savoury options, including colourful creations such as house-made granola topped with Greek yoghurt panna cotta, spring onion waffles, stuffed portobello mushrooms and French toast with poached pear. Toby’s Estate has supplied its ethically minded El Futuro blend for The Frond Cafe’s coffee service, which includes espresso, cold-brew and batch-brew options. Cold-pressed juice is also supplied every 48 hours from Stanthorpe, made from apples and oranges deemed not pretty enough for sale by grocery corporations. Taking full advantage of its leafy position, The Frond Cafe is also selling picnic baskets filled with sandwiches, desserts, fruit platters and cold drinks for groups of two, four or six. The Frond Cafe is giving five percent of its profits to a rotating selection of charities. To further promote environmental awareness, all takeaway cups cost 30 cents more than dine-in coffee or brew enjoyed in a Keep Cup. That amount is then donated to Positive Change for Marine Life in Byron Bay, which engages in a range of initiatives to protect our oceans, reefs and wildlife. Finally, The Frond Cafe’s space is also being utilised for various functions and events, with a tailored and multi-faceted offering suitable for large parties and gatherings.
