Melbourne’s Spot On Café expands

For several years it has been a culinary adventure for young restaurateur Izzy Abrahams.

At the age of 24, Izzy changed careers from his job with an audio-visual company in Port Melbourne and followed his dream to become a successful caterer and restaurateur.

His first business, Passionate Cupcakes, involved creating and delivering succulent desserts to local kosher grocery establishments. While delighted with the response to his cupcakes and desserts, Izzy dreamed of something bigger. So when a café space on Glen Eira Road became available, he took a leap of faith and created Spot On Café.

Starting a new business, however, was not an overnight success. It took three years to build the brand.

“This is not unusual for restaurants anywhere in the world,” Izzy pointed out. “Many new restaurants struggle in their early days. Some don’t make it.”

Luckily, it wasn’t the case for Spot On Café, with their mouth-watering dishes and desserts, attracting customers who were soon lining up and making reservations weeks in advance.

Nonetheless, a lifelong learner, Izzy was on the lookout for fresh opportunities. He noticed a niche for a pleasant local function eatery that offered a generous space, cosy atmosphere, delicious kosher food, convenient parking and a great vibe.

“So three and a half years after the opening of Spot On Café, we’re expanding to fill that gap market,” Izzy said.

The new Spot On eatery and function venue located at 132 Glen Eira Rd, Elsternwick, hopes to experience the same success as the original Spot On Café.

Hundreds flocked in to see what the new place was all about on the very first day on 23 July.

Izzy commented, “We are now serving more classic dishes than those on our original menu. Guests can expect to enjoy brunch favourites like Eggs Benedict. It’s served on a rosemary hash and topped with Hollandaise sauce. It’s been an instant hit.”

“Great food with astonishing presentation and exclusive ingredients,” customer Samuel J. Kiumbo said. “Local chefs are simply superb; kind and professional staff and awesome quality and price. Strongly recommended!”

From its early beginnings, the new Spot On Café has catered to the needs of its customers by offering car parking spaces with dedicated spots for guests living with a disability among many diner-friendly accommodations it offers.

It seems that Spot On’s new location was as well thought out as Izzy’s previous two food ventures have been. The best testimonial to prove this is the seven functions booked at Spot On for the month of August alone. The space is perfect for all kinds of events, with capacity for over 100 guests; be it a small music concert, birthday parties or corporate promotions.”

What makes Spot On stand out from its competition? It looks and feels like an iconic Australian café that just happens to be kosher.

Spot On Café invites their loyal customers and new guests to come over to 132 Glen Eira Rd, Elsternwick. “Drop in for a coffee or a bite to eat at our new premises. See what we have to offer,” said Izzy Abrahams.

One recent diner commented, “The moment I stepped into Izzy’s new spot, I envisioned my daughter’s engagement party happening right there. It’s an ideal location for a family function. It’s modern looking, filled with natural light, and the food is just out of this world. If you haven’t tasted Izzy’s brunch dishes, you don’t know what you’re missing!”


Spot On Cafe is open Sun 8am-4pm, Mon-Thu, 7am-4pm and 7am-3pm on Fridays.

    Spot On is as its name suggests. It stand out amongst Melbourne’s kosher eateries and is the perfect response to those who think kosher food can’t be delicious. All it needs is a few IPAs on its drinks menu!
