We rarely head out to Richmond for breakfast, however this weekend we had an appointment out this way, so thought to make the most of it and check out a new cafe. It was pretty much where ever we could find a parking spot was where we were eating. With a quick stroll up Bridge Road, we came across Fifty Acres, which looked like a cute little (& busy) cafe, so was set to check it out.
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
Fifty Acres is a small cafe with a fresh, bright interior. Walking in, the space is left quite simple with a large feature marble bar, wooden bench seating, high ceilings, rustic timber floors and an abundance of natural light beaming off the white furnishings. There are a hand full of seats inside the restaurant and a few tables outside for those wanting some fresh air.
Arriving at the perfect time we didn’t need to wait for a table, however within a few minutes there was a line of people waiting to be seated. It’s always nice to go somewhere new and feel relaxed. The staff are friendly and professional and were very attentive with orders.
The menu matches the style of the cafe, clean, fresh and effortless. Coffee was a must so early in the morning, which was creamy, tasty and served in chic little black ceramic cups. Everything from Breakfast Burritos to Citrus Cured Salmon to their famous Pumpkin Pancakes made the list of amazing dishes to start your morning.
I decided to go with the ‘Bircher’ served with mixed berry compote, seasonal fruits, freeze dried raspberries & toasted coconut flakes. YUM! There were so many flavours in the dish, yet they all worked beautifully together. There was the freshness from the peaches and strawberries, followed by the crunch from the toasted coconut flakes.
Overall, I’m very glad we found this charming little cafe on Bridge Road. The staff were friendly and attentive and the cafe was quiet and relaxed, perfect for a Sunday morning brekky.
