Richmond Hill Café and Larder (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Grab a seat for a breakfast dessert of caramelised banana and pecan praline pancakes with honeycomb, and Canadian maple syrup or give them a day's notice and they will rustle you up the king of picnic baskets to take on a sunny adventure around Richmond. If you are more the DIY type then roll up your sleeves and delve into the cheese room to frolic amongst the fromage.
This establishment has one of the oldest cheese rooms in Melbourne and was originally owned and operated by the city’s culinary matriarch Stephanie Alexander. Once inside the stylish, temperature-controlled cheese cellar it’s hard to think about anything other than cheese. While Comté is a staff favourite the larder’s curated foreign and domestic range works for many tastes. Their creamy sheep’s milk Ossau-Iraty is a knockout. The lunchtime chicken schnitzel is served with a nice sprinkle of grated truffle Pecorino; the more cheese-centric breakfast Croque Madame makes good use of the larder’s Gruyère and Parmesan.
