Breakfast at Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder

Submitted by on October 16, 2009 – 9:58 pm6 Comments

Unlike wrapping paper, Richmond Hill wastes no time in covering up the the goods. Show me the fritters!

Details: 48-50 Bridge Road, Richmond, Victoria Phone: 03 9421 2808 (google maps)

Surroundings: Large open space filled with natural light. Shelves filled with local produce. A cheese room lurks near the front counter awaiting temptation.

Liquid Consumption: Cappuccino X2.


Mains: Corn and coriander fritters with smoked salmon, poached egg, spinach and Tomato & Capsicum Relish (pictured above those tempting jams)

These crunchy babies were too good. It reminded me of mum’s salmon patties (which reminds me that I have to post the recipe).

The crunchy coating revealing the sweet juicy corn kernels bursting in your adrenaline filled mouth.

The highlight of the show was definitely the salsa combined with the yolk from the poached egg and fresh salmon finally folded amongst the fritters. I went beserk. Moaning and groaning like a damn maniac. Of course I didn’t care.

‘The Lot’: 2 eggs cooked as you prefer with bacon, mushrooms and tomato. This should’ve been called “The Excessive” I swear I heard my jeans button pop out as it could no longer hold the fort. Poor guy.  Some nice ladies nearby were in hysterics as they couldn’t believe how large the meal was.

The mushrooms were the king on this plate with the buttery juices flowing out like Niagara Falls.


The Cheese Room. Most of their cheeses are homemade, rather than being mass produced. We had a taste of their farmhouse cheddar and goats brie. Of course I was beside myself and couldn’t resist buying a couple hundred grams worth. The Farm house Cheddar was the winner- slightly crumbly with the right amount of bitterness.

Service: The waitress staff were friendly. Cheese room attendant at the time was ok.

Bring a date here: Of course.

Brekkie with friends? Well, that all depends on whether your friends actually wake up before 12PM on a weekend.

$$$: 40 + Cheese

Food Rehab Verdict: Sent me to food rehab (book this place now! Wowzer) – Greenlight

Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder on Urbanspoon

Where would you recommend I go for breakfast next? I like cheese….

    That breaky looks delish! Who needs egg benedicts when you could eat this! Bring on the corn fritters the look really good made to perfection!

    Im really glad you found my site. I’m always on the hunt for melbourne food blogs. Im usually in melbourne for work but I rarely eat out cos im uncomfortable eating alone. :(

      Hey Leona- thanks! Yes, the fritters were too good. Next time you’re down, you should come along to our food blogger get togethers. We just pigged out at Pizza Express (post to come) on the weekend which Mattt Preston also reviewed. I’m permanently stuck in food rehab- but I wouldn’t want it any other way! :)

  • Leona says:

    lol permanently stuck in food rehab LOL!!! I like the sound of that. Wow cant wait to read a post about you guys hoeing into mmmm pizzzzzaaaa..

    Will be a while till im back in melbourne. Will be there for a week during the aust open period hope to try some places then. Sux im not hiring a car though… those hook turns freak us sydney ppl out.

    • Adrian says:

      Hey Leona- LOL, yes, I’m only being honest! Yes, I’m still trying to find time to write the post about our dinner…bah!

      Cool, summer is the bomb down here. Agreed, hook turns are the poo and I try to avoid them as much as possible. Luckily I live near the city so I can walk.

  • I confess whenever I see corn fritters on a menu I order them! Somehow if you eat them for breakfast you don’t really consume all the calories right. At least that’s how my theory goes! 😛

    • Adrian says:

      Hey Lorraine- ha! Agreed. Eat what you want for brekky (and I mean anything) and you’ll have the rest of the day to burn the guilt (calories) off. I think it’s our blogger duty to consume more than the norm. Right?

      mmmm, reminiscing about freshly baked corn bread from NY. Good ol soul food. Help!
