Little Red Review- Unwind Craft Cafe (East Keilor)

In the heart of suburban East Keilor, only a mere 17kms from the bustling laneways and skyscrapers protruding from the Melbourne CBD, comes Unwind Craft Café.


Opened in 2013, this retro-styled handmade heaven has quickly become a favourite place of mine to unwind and is kid-friendly (and puppy-friendly outside- thanks for the neat water bowl!) It’s really a breath of fresh retail air for the area and for Melbourne’s outer city suburbia in general.

Their support for the crafty types who make the most exquisite children’s ware, natural skin and hair products, jewelry, knit ware and home wares is unwavering. Each week since opening, I’ve purchased one or two items (or maybe more- shhhh don’t tell my husband) for my children and myself. Dresses for my toddler, mason glass ware for myself and indulged in their delicious homemade apricot cheesecake- heaven in a jar! ★★★★★

Apricot Cheesecake- delicious!


Unwind Craft Café is a trusted provider of Bendigo Wool, fabrics, craft supplies and for those interested in knitting and crocheting, designated timeslots in the week cater for a craft-and-chat: get together with your friends, share in some of Unwind’s enchanting delicacies in a space that supports the more classical and retro arts we all love.

The great wall of wool!


Whether it’s to sticky-nose around, to buy a gift for a loved one (I recommended the handmade vintage fabric dresses for the little girls in your life) or to catch up with friends over coffee and cake, I can’t recommend Unwind Craft Café enough. Open Tuesday through to Saturday, make the drive to chat to the uber-friendly staff and soon you’ll be (crochet) hooked, it’s a promise.
