Making life better is the concept behind Melbourne’s New Leaf Cafe, where guests from all walks of life are welcomed with open arms. Established with the purpose of strengthening the local community through creative outreach and excellent food, while at the same time providing a safe space for families, outsiders, and those looking to start anew, the cafe on Woods Street is committed to making a difference in the lives of Newport residents. Open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday, New Leaf Cafe is a caring alternative.
A popular choice among busy parents and their children, New Leaf Cafe on Newport’s Wood Street provides a hospitable environment where guests are greeted with positivity and kindness. Lovingly decorated throughout, this Melbourne cafe is casual with modern touches and chic lighting. Featuring a separate dining area complete with a jumping castle, toys, and even an outdoor play area, New Leaf encourages diners to bring along the little ones for a hearty breakfast and plenty of good clean fun.
In addition to providing a space for personal development, Melbourne’s New Leaf Cafe also offers contemporary Australian cuisine alongside excellent pasta dishes, high-quality coffee and plenty of options for the kiddies. Did we mention the all-day breakfast? Go for the decadent French toast with maple syrup, or opt for a big breakfast complete with sausages, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, fried tomato, baked beans, mushrooms and sourdough breads. The burgers are also excellent, and include beef and chicken schnitzel varieties. You’re invited to turn over a new leaf at this humble Newport cafe, but make sure to reserve a table ahead of time!
This is a Fantastic little cafe excellent value for money and lovely staff. It is easy to miss given it is not in a strip of shops but well worth finding
I was recommended to add this place to my list of choices for my daughter’s 1st birthday and Naming Day through an online mother’s group. The commitment taken and service was far superior to some of the finest restaurants across Melbourne. My daughter’s birthday was a huge hit. The length taken to decorate and cater for the function was actually in its own league. I literally turned up with my guests and cake to an amazing, well thought out and planned room with constant customer service for my guests. I cannot think of another place that compares to it. The setting is casual, flexible and relaxing, targeting families with younger children (crawlers/toddlers). This venue also provides a cafe that has a safe and secure play environment both indoors and outdoors for children to enjoy at anytime. The food is cafe style with great coffee. Doors are opened for you while you push a pram through. Mother’s, dad’s, families can enjoy adult conversations while children play close by safely. The best thing with all of this though is that it provides opportunities to people that live in our community when no one else may give them a chance to be employed. For this, I take my hat off to Kylie whom has grit and commitment and to your amazing team you have nurtured. It’s utterly inspiring. X
Outstanding service. Loved the kids playroom. Plenty for my 3yo to do. Even a mini jumping castle. And of course the food was great too!
Was a nice quiet spot for breakfast. I like the values the place is built on.
The service was very timely and the food was good in taste and quality. However some of the staff members were unattentive and unresponsive. When asked to follow up, they would either not return or take too long to get back with a response.
It was a very quaint place with friendly service. I love the concept of helping those who are struggling in life great and hope that the business continues to grow.
Cafe was small but comfortable. Staff very friendly and service was quick. Menu was good and food was excellent.Will definitely be returning and recommending cafe to family and friends.
The Big breakfast was a winner - fabulous mushrooms were the standout. The strong coffee, surprisingly to them, met with the approval of the aficionados in tow.
Great coffee. Fantastic area for kids to play especially in winter. Love that this cafe is helping the community. We will be back again. Thanks
Staff were very friendly, pancakes & coffee was great. A good place to catch up with friends & enjoy a chat. Recommend a visit soon
