This place is the unofficial bookworm capital, and has become the popular spot with Milpark, Auckland Park and Melville locals. The Richmond Studio Cafe is owned by ex The Star photographer, Antoine de Ras and INL editor, Mantombi Makhubele so you can imagine just how much creativity flows around this place.
This place is the combo that you need; comfort food and warmth…
Melt My Heart
I had to use that as a heading because the minute you lay your eyes on the food at Richmond Studio Cafe; you will realise that it works for being the greatest options for comfort food.
Best believe, even though it might not always turn out well – we do eat with our eyes, however the one think that really exceeded my expectation was how lovely the food here is. The food is absolutely amazing, almost like soul food but with a modern twist to it.
This spot specialises in coffee, cakes, pastries and a brunch menu that generously full of variety and much to choose from. Enjoy savoury croissants and other exciting breakfast and lunch options that will have you weak at the knees. My number one has to be the spicy chicken mayo sarmie (not that I’m diverse whatsoever where chicken and may come together.
As much as I talk about heartwarming food – nothing quite like a warm environment full of spontaneous gestures that make you want to enjoy butter popcorn and hot choc.
The nostalgic materials of wood really bring the vibe and place together, making you feel right at home. It’s a slice of heaven really, the Richmond Studio Cafe has become a home to freelancers, journalists and creatives who sit down for their daily java fix. It’s quite motivating.
