ABOUT THE CAFE

Cafe’s That Care Interview – Laura of Mileto’s Cafe



Originally from Korumburra in South Gippsland, Laura and Pepe ‘Mr Fix it’ Mileto moved to Melbourne six years ago to operate a deli. Three years later Mileto’s was re-vamped into a comfy, ‘home style’ rustic family run cafe, specialising in traditional Italian bites. Laura was kind enough to tell us a little about her cafes philosophy.

Mileto

The space began its life as a butchery, deli and fruit shop sixty years ago. Six years ago we took over and opened a Deli selling cold cut meats and ready-to-serve foods such as cheeses and salads. Every once in a while our clients would ask us for something a little extra. It started with Minestrone soup, then Panini and snowballed from there. 

In our third year we saw an opportunity to expand, and so one Christmas we renovated and Mileto’s cafe was born. 

What do you think are the importance of health foods in your business?

Whole, healthy foods in our business are extremely important not only because our customers demand fresh ingredients, but because it is something that we grew up with while living on a farm. 

We serve fresh organic foods and we make all our own gluten free and spelt breads, except for croissants. In summer we have a large selection of fresh, crispy salads and in winter we have a diverse soup list.


What’s Mileto’s philosophy towards wellness?




Restaurants and cafes here in Chapel Street is don’t provide wholesome healthy take away foods, which I find strange. That’s why customers that come to Mileto’s have the option of taking away anything that’s on the menu.


We also cook from the heart and only use the freshest ingredients. We don’t ‘ever’ buy commercial, instead we source all our ingredients from the farmers market and get our veggie burgers and falafels freshly made.

I always source fresh whole foods and create classic Italian meals that are simple and tasty, and I wouldn’t serve anyone food that I wouldn’t eat myself. I believe it is this philosophy that keeps our clients coming back over and over again.
