When you’re looking for a place to brunch, Richmond has plenty on offer. And Long Story Short has a relaxed space with an exciting menu to satisfy your brunching needs. Did I mention they have awesome hot chocolate spheres with marshmallows inside. Yep, that alone is a pretty good reason to visit.
The venue has a relaxed vibe with modern wooden furniture and low hanging lights.
Hot chocolate at Long Story Short is quite the experience.
You pour the hot chocolate over the sisko chocolate sphere and it melts down and surprise marshmallows pop up. It’s heaps of fun and delicious too. But a heads up for the photo enthusiasts, eventually the hot chocolate will go cold so make your photo session a quick one.
There were two flavours, a milk hot chocolate and a matcha maiden white hot chocolate.
The soft shell crab was crunchy and the burger bun was covered in seeds (sesame, pumpkin), which added a nice texture. It was filled with fresh herbs and slaw.
If buns are too carby for you, they also do a soft shell crab salad which is the crispy fried soft shell on top of a fresh and crunchy slaw.
The pork ribs were tasty and tender. It was served with a savoury salad with watermelon pieces. I loved the watermelon it was fresh and went well with the ribs. Yum.
Can’t go wrong with chilli scramble.
A brunch staple, smashed avo with poachies.
Salmon with crispy skin and grain salad with lots of texture. Quinoa, buckwheat, lentils, barley, dried grapes, almonds and fresh herbs.
The Pepe Saya buttermilk pancakes were thick and fluffy (very filling) and had layers of caramalised banana and peanut butter in between. It was topped with a sour cream and vanilla ice cream.
They have cold drip coffee with different drop times so you can decide how strong you want it. It starts from 10 seconds and goes up to a 60 second drop. The longer the time between drops, the stronger the coffee.
In short, the coffee is strong, the hot chocolates are awesome and it’s a great place to enjoy some tasty food for brunch.
I heart Long Story Short!
