What happens when a retired Italian butcher from Essendon meets the grandson of an English butcher? They build a café of course!
Sure, not the most obvious answer, but that’s how Wilfred Smith was created.
The site of the café is a renovated butcher shop on a hill, a solitary store amongst suburban houses. The owner has leased the premises to Matt, a long-standing member of the restaurant world in his first venture into café-dom.
It seems fit then to name a previous butcher shop after another butcher; Matt’s grandfather Wilfred Smith. Fate sealed the deal.
