I didn’t realise how many cafés were in Marrickville until just recently! A bit late I know but better late than never I say! I was catching up with the lovely E and her son Boo and suggested this place. Kelby’s was established in 2004 and can be found in Marrickville. It’s a quirky café, very relaxed atmosphere, groovy music and has a rustic charm to it. They even have mother’s room with comfy sofas that can booked in advance for up to 8 people! Will have to suggest this next time for my mothers group!
Menu is vast and has a slight Mediterranean twist. They have daily specials written on the wall.
Started with the chai latte, it was good but I thought it lacked a little flavour, not enough chai or cinnamon!
I couldn’t go past the garlic mushrooms on toast ($8) and added avocado and sausage, which was chorizo at $3 each. The garlic mushrooms were scrumptious and the chorizo cooked to perfection. It was indeed the breakfast that I needed and wanted.
E couldn’t go past the Egyptian sauté of sweet potato, fetta and dukkah served on chunky hommus toast with poached eggs ($13). It looked fabulous, however, E informed me that it sounded and looked better than it tastes. She thought the flavours didn’t quite work but it did look good though!
Service is friendly and definitely baby friendly! I would happily go back again to try their French toast or even their sandwiches – they sound delish!
