I rarely get the chance to visit Richmond for brekky, however I did have an appointment in the area and thought I would try and find something quick for a coffee and something to eat. I didn’t have to walk far before walking up to the Old Barber Shop Cafe.
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
This small cafe offers a hand full of tables inside and additional seating on their front alfresco area. Being a beautiful day, I decided to enjoy what few sunny summer days we’ve had so far. The fit out stays true to the Victorian style house the cafe has taken over.
With a cosy neighbourfood feel, elements of the Victorian era come through with a few hints of modern aspects to give the space a cosy, yet funky vibe. The service was attentive, however with only one other table there, it did take a while for my coffee to arrive (well worth the wait though!).
The menu was simple with all your favourite dishes to choose from. I went with the usual, ‘Bircher Muesli’ with caramelized figs, plum, toasted hazelnut and honey. I loved the sweetness from the figs and plum and the added crunch from the toasted hazelnut. It was a rather simple dish, however quite tasty.
Overall it was a great breakfast. The food and service were simple and homey, yet very tasty. A great place to go for a quick bite to eat.
