Czegs’ in Richmond claim to have the best coffee in town! While This Girl hasn’t tried the coffee in any other establishment in Richmond, Czegs’ certainly does a coffee good enough to rival any of our great Hobart cafés.
This Girl went along for a leisurely brunch and jaunt around Richmond recently with previous local Cute and Too Cool!
When we arrived there was a line up out the door, some waiting for coffee, some waiting to order – we were worried we had found somewhere amazing but there was no room at the inn!
Thankfully Czegs’ is somewhat like a Tardis; there are two rooms inside filled with tables as well as outdoor under cover and open-air tables. It was overcast but warm, so we chose outside undercover, which we were happy about when the clouds eventually opened up!
What we ate:
Eggs Royale, poached eggs served on house-made pumpkin bread, cold smoked salmon & spinach topped with hollandaise. The spinach was cooked with garlic and the hollandaise was a lighter version that worked so well with the rich salmon. Their pumpkin bread was soft, yet dense and so tasty. I was happy to see that you can purchase their house baked bread to take home!
Eggs Benedict; poached eggs, hickory smoked bacon and hollandaise on home-made sourdough.
Big Brekky; eggs how you like (Cute went for poached) with house-made sourdough, chipolatas, fried mushroom, grilled tomato, hickory smoked bacon and tomato chutney.
Breakfast is served until 11:30 am and then they serve from their lunch menu with options such as: tea-smoked duck, Tasmanian seafood cocktail salad and This Girl’s favourite; croquets, Czegs’ version being smoked salmon, parmesan and chive served with a rich consacé sauce. They also have a very impressive list of vegetarian options including a black truffle risotto.
This Girl is very keen to go back and give some of these options a try.
They’ve recently re-started their dinner’s on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6pm, keep an eye on their Facebook page for their dinner menu.
Czegs’ is at 46 Bridge Street, the main strip of the little village of Richmond, and is a welcoming café in a beautiful historic building with fantastic food and great service – oh and I’ll say it again, they really do make a good coffee! Check them out on Facebook and Instagram.
It’s easy to disregard Richmond because it’s a place for tourists but locals live there and us Hobartians shouldn’t miss out on the good stuff going on there.
Be a local tourist, go out and support our small towns browse amongst the shops and try their cafes.
