A new cafe has popped up in Springfield, but there’s a lot about it that will be familiar to locals.
Remedy Espresso Cafe owner Mel Friedberg said the name of the business reflected her philosophy about food, that it is the remedy to most of life’s troubles.
Mel purchased the cafe at 11/1 Springfield Lakes Blvd when it was still known as Dark Horse Coffee and recently re-branded for a fresh start.
She is continuing the previous cafe owners reputation for catering to keto, gluten-free, vegan and nut-free diets.
The nut-free kitchen sources eggs, produce, meat, bread and even honey from local suppliers and farmers and offers a seasonal menu of simple wholesome food, from house pancakes to avo on toast.
Mel is conscious of the cafe’s impact on the environment and uses biodegradable, plant based take away cups to sell it’s traditional Merlo espresso.
The cafe is also still dog friendly, with heaps of outdoor areas where pampered pooches can relax, while their humans sip on a freshly brewed Merlo latte or tuck into a gluten free eggs benedict or a vegan vege stack for brekky.
Remedy Espresso Cafe is open seven days a week from 5.30am Monday to Friday and 7.30am Saturday and Sunday. They also offer breakky on the go options like toasties and wraps.
