pillar of salt, richmond

i stopped into pillar of salt the other morning after a failed office chair expedition at officeworks… desperately in need of caffeine and in the mood for something fresh, light and savoury.

the cafe use five senses coffee, which i enjoyed – strong flavour with no bitterness or unpleasant aftertaste, and i took a second for the road which was equally as satisfying.

smashed avocado on toast with poached eggs, truss tomatoes, chilli, coriander and mixed seeds.
sad to say, i was a bit disappointed. my eggs were well under-cooked: watery and the whites far too runny. and while the avocado and lemon were fresh and light, i ended up with more of the truss tomatoes down my scarf than in my mouth – the juices sadly splat everywhere!

inside, the cafe was surprisingly busy for a monday with bench seats along the window – great for some people watching. staff were reasonably friendly and service was adequate. i definitely had the monday blues so perhaps can blame it on a poor menu choice, but unfortunately i left wishing i’d walked the extra 300m down church st to top paddock.

verdict: up against some tough richmond competition
