The Verdict

Like their older sibling Kinfolk, Sibling café is more than just a trendy place to eat and Instagram.

It looks every part a modern café should, with deep green, leafy wallpaper and exposed brick walls, except their floor staff is run entirely by volunteers and all profits are distributed between The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre or The Cathy Freeman Foundation—depending which one is voted by customers.

Breakfast is served all day (as it should be) with moreish options including a “Grainola” with coconut, ginger, miso yoghurt, finger lime and mango, and kimchi scrambled eggs served with nori, turnips and buckwheat crisps.

If you’re up for something a little more out there you can’t go past their pan-fried milking yard chicken livers served with peas, shallots and sorghum. Yeah, wow.

The lunch options remain just as quirky with offerings like Kangaroo tail braise with peas, labne and rice crisp, and smoked zucchini with fermented chilli, cornbread and slaw. They clearly mean business when it comes to flavours.

Make sure you check out their ‘Sibling Sundays” if you want to gorge yourself on plant-based share plates and endless filter coffee and pet nat wine for just $33.

We really can’t think of anymore reasons to visit Sibling. Incredible food, filter coffee and they give back to charities and their volunteers? Doesn’t get any better than that.
