Welcome to Patch! Richmond's much loved paleo-inspired cafe. Co-founders Tom Davidson and Jacob Burke have brought together their mutual passions for clean eating and a healthy lifestyle to create a very unique Melbourne eatery. Set in the old, heritage restored Channel Nine studio building, you'll be instantly won over by the scale of the place.
Just look up when you walk inside to see how tall the ceiling is! The sense of openness and space is what sets Patch aside from your usual cafe. Choose between sitting inside at the long bench top, at one of the smaller tables, or outside either under cover or out in the sun. You're surrounded by incredible architecture everywhere you look. This is one of Melbourne's best redevelopments. While creating a fresh and new feel, the charm and atmosphere of the old television studio stomping ground still remains.
Now to the food - you are in for a treat! Whether you're paleo, gluten/dairy/sugar/grain free, or a lover of every food, you'll be catered for and deeply satisfied at Patch. Head chef Brett Tait is always trying out new and inventive combinations, as well as offering the classic eggs, bacon and sides. The Breakfast Salad and Paleo French Toast are two stand-outs. Speaking of toast - Patch makes their own Paleo bread, which you can buy to take home. You'll also find exquisite coffee by Code Black, Almond Milk Co, an array of fresh juices and tempting, guilt-free sweets in the cabinet. Patch really is a delight on all five senses. You'll walk out feeling nourished, satisfied, relaxed, energised and incredibly happy for choosing to spend some of your day in this superb Melbourne cafe.
