This morning before work I went out for breakfast with Synonymous and our friend Fei. We wanted to go to Flaunt on Bridge Road but the door informed us that “Irene has the flu”; so instead we continued wandering down the road and stumbled across Raw Cafe. Here we were warmly greeted by Darren, who has been the owner of Raw for 3 years and is one of those people who are just so suited to working in hospitality; very cheerful and charming and welcoming.
Raw has seating indoors and out; we sat outside as it was a beautiful, rare sunny morning today. After two great lattes (only $2.50!) we ordered from the extensive menu; Raw has all the the breaky usuals (Benedict, big breaky etc) as well as a full page of sandwiches to choose from, each of which is named after an AFL team. Synonymous had this…
“Richmond’s greatest breaky roll” – soft roll with egg, bacon, tomato relish, cheese and lettuce, $6.90. Indeed, it was pretty great; the tangy, slightly spicy relish made it stand out from other breakfast rolls.
Great service, lots of choices and good coffee – and at $15 for a big breakfast and a latte it’s very reasonably priced.
