Get my drift? – Dandelion and Driftwood (Brisbane)

by Hendra, Brisbane – Hidden away in a suburban street in Hendra is one of the most delightful little café I have come across. Dandelion and Driftwood is a tiny, but gorgeous café with a tea garden out the back.  by

Kinfolk (Melbourne)

Ordinary cafe this most definitely is not. It is much more – it is a social enterprise. For example, set beside the cash register are 4 big glass jars, each pertaining to a charity. Customers direct the cafe’s profits by placing coffee beans into their charity jar of choice. Last year, this little outfit funneled $100,000 into both local and international projects.
