“Legacy is a health conscious café set in the heart of Camberwell, a leafy suburb 15 mins out of Melbourne’s CBD”
We purposely arrived at Legacy (click here) at 10am to miss the morning and lunch rushes, which we’ve heard this place is accustomed to. When we arrived at the hole-in-the-wall cafe in Camberwell there was no queue but by the time we sat down and placed our order, the place was full and buzzing.
The cafe’s long industrial & minimalistic dećor was very welcoming. Legacy’s mood is relaxed and homely thanks to the very liberally used red exposed brick, (which is in featured in just about everything, the walls, the floors, the benches and even the communal table) and the glimpses of timber and polished concrete that peep through the bright red bricks.
With a decent selection of raw smoothies, chia puddings and superfood bowls for the health conscious customers or the house made donuts and butter-milk fried chicken for anyone wanting to indulge a little, you can see why this café is destined to be one of Melbourne’s hot spots.
What we ate:
AVOCADO FETTA MASH – w/chilli, heirloom tomatoes, radish & black sesame seeds with rosti (this was an optional side)
MANGO & VANILLA CHIA PUDDING – edible flowers, strawberries and macadamias
ROYAL REECE – Peanut butter, raw cacao, banana, chia seeds, coconut shavings and almond milk
PICCOLO* – one of the best coffees i have had in Melbourne
The chia pudding was light and the mango puree at the bottom was a great touch. Our Avocado & Feta Mash was good, but not great, lacked a little bit of a flavour. The Royal Reece smoothie was pretty epic, along with my salted peanut butter cookie!
*The coffee is worth making a special mention – my piccolo was one of the best coffees I have had in a while.
A big thumbs up for this hot spot.
