We often visit this Richmond icon with beautiful food & service to match regular on the food trail for year with many happy meals. Love the aroma of the cheese room & larder for some special treats.. Never changes but gets better

Three for lunch, small hawiian pizza, chicken, mushroom and spinach risotto, and a chicken souvlaki, with bowl of chips, a coffee and a green tea and hot chocolate. All for $54 at a beaut wide table including terrific access for wheelchair. Friendly service, good atmosphere and I reckon would be ideal at evening. Very happy with everything and will call...

My wife and I enjoyed the opportunity to have breakfast at RHCL and it was a delight. It was a rainy day so outside seating was not available and as a result it was a bit cramped. But we managed to get a seat straight away at the bar. There was a little delay in getting served as it was... More

Morroccan Eggs were amazing, my 10yo son loved having steak for breakfast and the smelly chess room comes into the category for Food Porn, I spent $80 on smelly cheese and they vacuum sealed it and I took it back to Perth (Hand Luggage) much to wife's delight. Brownie points for me ;)

I have been coming to this restaurant for a few years during layovers in Melbourne. It changed hands recently and has been given a slight makeover, which hasn't added any significant value to the ambience. The staff are still pretty friendly and the food is well prepared and fresh. A recent menu change seems to have been for the worse,... More

Had a Cudo voucher for a charcuterie board and main meal, plus glass of wine. When we turned up they didn't have record of our booking but were able to get us a table. We really enjoyed all the food and had a hamburger for main. The only thing we didn't enjoy as much was the chips they were a... More

Friendly approachable staff-my water glass was never empty which I was impressed with. Also most amazing pancakes we have ever eaten, thick but still incredibly light and fluffy wow.

Service was very good in this light and airy restaurant. The lunchtime menu was excellent, with a fuller menu to choose from too. Separate to the main restaurant is a small deli area selling a small range of local produce and of course there's the cheese room. A glass walled room sealed off from the restaurant where you can go... More

Went to this café with family for brunch one Sunday morning. Have been to this café before hence our reason for returning. The food was excellent, the coffees hot and the service friendly. The restaurant because it is very popular can be quite busy, so thank goodness we reserved a table beforehand. The only issue is that can be quite... More
