If you’re craving something sweeter, then we’d recommend ordering the French toast with Dragon sorbet, banana brulee, honeycomb, berries, orange labneh and fairy floss; the ricotta hotcakes; or some amazing Halo-Halo waffles (complete with berries, coconut jelly, jackfruit coulis, ube ice cream, pearls, stick-o and creme caramel) for a delicious start to your day. If you are after something healthier, the café also offers a tasty House Made Granola or plain toast with your choice of toppings to get your day started right.

The little ones will be happy with waffles, ham and cheese quesadillas, eggs and bacon on toast, and chicken chips, all featured on the kid’s menu at just $10 each.

Why not add a drink to your order? Sure to offer a much-needed pick me up for every type of coffee addict, the café offers a variety of coffee, loose leaf tea, and hot and cold drinks to quench any thirst. You’ll also find all the milk alternatives including soy, lactose-free, almond, oat and coconut. Oh and there’s freshly squeezed orange juice.

Finding food that accommodates specific allergies can be challenging if you’re anything like me. Options are usually minimal if there are any at all. However, the good news for my fellow celiacs is that Kaldero Café has an extensive range of gluten-free options. Most of the menu is either gluten-free or offers gluten-free alternatives like gluten-free bread that promise to tickle your fancy. Vegetarian and Vegan options are also available, with the café doing its best to be as accommodating as possible for its patrons.

There is no reason for you to not stop by this hottest new breakfast and lunch spot for a much-needed food or drink break.

Kaldero Cafe is open 8 am – 4:30 pm Mondays – Saturdays and Sundays 9 am – 4:30 pm. Make sure to visit their Geelong location at 206-208 Ryrie street.
