Il Fornaio is a long standing cafe in St Kilda. Established in 1994 the cafe has been serving the locals great food and coffee for over 30 years. Recently the menu had a complete overhaul with the majority of options changing to plant-based.
The new menu designed and developed by Plant Based Cam introduced a number of new options to substitute animal products. Items included a avocado based hollandaise which is rich and creamy just like you want a hollandaise, just without the egg.
Another item that was a passion project by Cameron was the Cubano. A traditional Cuban sandwich that was turned on its head and made completely vegan with a slow cooked jackfruit centre.
Il Fornaio changes with the times and adapts its menu, which is a great trait. Looking forward to seeing the future menu changes with them.
