Il Gobbo comes to Essendon!

I’m always excited to learn of a new vegan business opening up (especially food) so I was most pleased to learn that Il Gobbo has opened on Keilor Road in Essendon.  Offering a selection of burgers, hot dogs, a burrito, nachos, lasagna, spaghetti with sauce and fries for your meal, I decided today was the day I had to go  ;)

Even though I’d looked at the menu online at home, I still had some trouble deciding on a burger because they all sounded great.  In the end I decided that because I am a Veganopoulous I had to get the Fully Sick Wog Burger.  I really liked the patty and the onion, sundried tomato, vegan bacon and cheese with the fresh basil and tomato worked well together.  Definitely something I’d get again once I work my way through the menu!


The fam inhaled two bowls of fries that were nicely seasoned:


I very much enjoyed my meal and service was lovely  :)  Go check it out!  Essendon peeps, well done on scoring such a tasty cafe!

I forgot to take a photo of the outside (a common theme with me) but here’s the inside:


Il Gobbo is located at 305 Keilor Road, Essendon.  Tram 59 stops right outside (stop 51).  Look for a green shop with signage for Down to Earth tattoos (who use vegan ink)– the cafe is in the front!

Il Gobbo has been visited by The Good Hearted and Vegawesome.

  1. Oooh, I’d read about this place and can’t wait to try it…but I wish I hadn’t shown this post to H though. She turns 18 next year, and now she knows the tattooist uses vegan ink, she’s planning her first tattoo…(I’m too young to have a daughter with a tattoo!)

I've moved to ! Please go there :)
