cafe, deli and space

a hub in the north

Melbourne has fast become a hub for sustainable living. We hope to contribute to this in the northern suburbs, by being conscious of our impact on the environment around us and on our own bodies.

As a social enterprise, we understand and recognize that we must aim to serve the community in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

We want to promote sustainability and social inclusion, and overall we want to contribute to the community we share with you.

Dragonfly strives to offer a comfortable – dare we say cosy – environment open to everyone in our community. Our space strives to operate through sophisticated, eco-friendly design features. And hopefully together we can create a place for everyone.


Dragonfly Cafe includes an area designed for younger members of our community. Other areas of the cafe offer spots for quiet contemplation. Our food is locally sourced – as often as possible – from producers with a predominantly permacultural method.


Ready-made products in our Deli are sourced from likeminded others with a passion for fresh taste! Our food is seasonal and always prepared with love and care, with a focus on nutritional density in line with contemporary nutrition knowledge. Therefore it not only tastes good, but it’s also good for you!


Parents will be able to relax in an area with child safety measures incorporated into the design. There is a community group space able to provide opportunity for community-run classes, like yoga, local art exhibitions, or info sessions on farming processes.
