About RHCL

Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder is one of Melbourne’s most established cafes - housed in a carefully restored Victorian building dating from 1860, on one of Melbourne’s busiest shopping strips, Bridge Road.

Located in one of Melbourne's oldest inner suburbs, Richmond Hill Café and Larder is a stone’s throw away from the CBD, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Park and Olympic Park and is easily accessed by both trains & trams. We are located amongst the bustling Bridge Road shopping precinct – making it a perfect stop for a meal in between boutiques!

Our breakfast and lunch menu strikes a balance between traditional comfort food and creative, inspired dishes that will excite your palate. If it’s cheese you’re after, a rotating selection of cheeses from our fromagerie are available daily with the option of a matched wine course, as selected by our sommelier.

Our unique fromagerie is home to a diverse selection of local and imported cheeses, many of which we mature in-house and some of which are stocked exclusively by us. Our cheesemongers live and breathe all things cheese and will gladly impart their knowledge to answer any questions you may have.

Our larder celebrates all things food with a variety of oils, preserves, cured meats, cookbooks and other specialist cooking equipment and ingredients. Our online shopping service provides a safe and secure environment for lovers of great food to purchase larder and cheese room goods online, with delivery available Australia-wide. Many of the ingredients used throughout our menu are available for purchase in our larder, including our own range of preserves made to our own recipes.

Our cheese club is a fantastic way to have cheese delivered right to your door, even if you’re unable to make it into the fromagerie. Orders can be placed at any time and will usually arrive within 2-3 days of dispatch. Additionally, an annual membership entitles you to 6 exclusive cheese offers during the year – each offer includes a delectable selection of cheeses chosen for their seasonal quality and are available for less than retail price. Cheese club memberships can also be given as gifts – the perfect present for any foodie! 

In addition to our daytime café service, we also host a range of special events during the year, from our monthly themed dinners, afternoon tea and our ever-popular cheese and wine workshops. We are also available for private functions every night of the week - whether it’s a corporate canapé event or an intimate sit-down birthday celebration with family and friends, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and take great pride in making your event one to remember. Further information on each of these is available on the ‘Functions’ page.
