I do love a good brunch of a Sunday morning. A nice lazy meal with good friends and usually, good juice.
The day after the AFL Grand Final, we were all feeling a little dazed (not too hungover, mind), but peckish after a day of pizzas and nibbles and beers. Step in Fifty Acres. It was a short walk from our friends apartment, and on the main drag in Richmond. It’s on Bridge Street, nestled in between the outlets and pubs.
Fifty Acres is purely a breakfast, brunch and lunch kinda place (they shut at 4pm), and their menu boasts an array of delicious, but healthy eats. Totally perfect for our group of four with different appetites and tastebuds.
As well as having the coolest looking custom coffee machine, the atmosphere is light and fresh and the staff are very attentive – serving us water immediately after we sat down. The decor has that cool industrial air about it, that wouldn’t look out of place in Shoreditch – but not in a bad way!
I opted for the breakfast burrito (see below) and it was jam packed with eggs and corn, and was the right amount of food for my hungry belly.
My only complaint was that it wasn’t spicy enough for me, but I’m quickly learning that Aussies don’t favour the spice too much! For a regular person, it’s probably a perfect breaky burrito!
Keegan had meatballs, and our fellow diners had the fry up and the scotch egg.
Breakfast is served all day! Apologies for the lack for photos on this one, I was concentrating too much on having a nice time.
If you’re looking for somewhere a bit different, quiet and delicious, then Fifty Acres is perfect for you. With an 87% rating on Urban Spoon, you can’t really refuse!
