Drop by Greville St to the new Ladro X NICCOLO street-side cafe. We popped up a pilot last Spring and due to popular demand it’s back and we’re now serving BREAKFAST eats…All our pastries, bread and coffee are made in Prahran within a block of Ladro with an aim to keep things uber local and of the highest quality. Sadly we can’t find an avocado grower in Prahran, but that hasn’t stopped us from smashing it up on toast for you! The best bit is our regular Ladro menu is available during our usual Ladro hours giving you even more choice.
Gluten & Dairy challenged peeps, we have you covered too!
MON-FRI  –  7am – 3pm
SAT – SUN  – 8am – 3pm

At Ladro we believe we have a responsibility to make sure we choose sustainable practices in our business. We could bore you with all the reasons that matter to us, but we reckon you’re probably on the same page.

So we now recycle 100% of our organic waste in a bio composting Closed Loop unit. [In Greville St + shortly in Gertrude St]. From chicken bones to carrot tops and eggs shells, in it goes! And now you’re able to take some of this super potent plant fertiliser home to use in your own garden…only $2 a bag. Be warned, your garden could resemble ‘The Day of The Triffids’…it really is powerful stuff. We’ve already donated some to Fitzroy Primary School + South Yarra Primary School for their veggie gardens and all reports are 2 green thumbs up!

We were also the very first restaurant 4 years ago to have a Rooftop Honey hive on our roof to make honey, now with a rocking 60,000 amazing bees on our roof. You’ve been eating our sweet honey for years…
Thanks to the great folks at DHMSCo we were also one of the very first restaurants in the country to use bottle-less mineral water via eco-kegs. We even make our own wine with the guidance of some of Australia’s best wine makers, pop it into kegs and serve it in carafes for you to enjoy reducing bottle wastage.
We also use only the most sustainable timber in our wood-fired ovens from The Green Centre.

Thanks to a little CSP shout out with Ingrid + Sean [co-owners] all the great stuff we do at Ladro is out there so you can not only eat delicious food but know that it has been made with love by people that care and sustainably.

See you soon at Ladro, Fitzroy + Prahran.

Streetsmart FOH All Stars Dinner

Ladro-Sean-Kierce-FOH-Allstars-StreetsmartSTREETSMART AUSTRALIA PRESENTS

If you haven’t heard about Streetsmart Australia and all the wonderful work they do, led by founder and CEO Adam Robinson, then you need to!
Since 2003 Adam has led a growing team including the organisations patron Tim Costello (CEO World Vision) to raise much needed funds to beat homelessness. All funds raised are donated to grassroots organisations via grants to help those in need and raise community awareness about homelessness. 
Tonight, as we have done for many years, Ladro will be participating in the annual Front of House All Stars Dinner to raise funds for Streetsmart Australia. Last year, along with half a dozen restaurants, we managed to raise a fabulous $25,000.00 on the night! Tonight Sean Kierce (co-founder Ladro, smiling above) along with one of our chefs will be donating food, time and expertise and we hope to beat last years figure…this years FOH All Stars Dinner will be held at Union Dining.
…Go Sean + dig deep tonight folks!
If you can’t make it tonight and want to make a contribution go here.
