Wilfred and Smith is a popular local cafe in the middle of residential Essendon. It’s petite and the interior navigation may be tricky for prams, but it does have high chairs and a large disabled bathroom with change table to cater for families.

When it’s warm the cosy front courtyard is the best place to hang out with kids as there’s a little more room to roam.

The food is a cut above cafe standards, particularly given the size of the small kitchen.

We try the French toast topped with caramelised banana, bacon, berries and ice cream. It’s a decadent and prettily arranged dish.

I have the black forest porridge – chocolate crumble sprinkled over a creamy oat porridge with raspberry/cherry compote. It’s soothing and filling, perfect for a wintery day.

The pastries and sweets are made on site and the doughnuts ($4.50) are big soft pillows of fried dough adorned with various toppings such as Nutella and espresso chocolate.

Perfect for a post-park treat with your Allpress Coffee! Wilfred and Smith is just a long walk/short drive from Montgomery Park and Essendon Traffic School.
