Had one of the best bacon butties and good coffee just beware that you should not be in a hurry when visiting as service is quite slow and it is always busy here. Good staff comfortable surroundings in & out.

Called in for breakfast. The service was great with friendly staff. The eggs benni was yummy as they use free-range eggs and bacon. Well presented and quickly served. The cafe is clean and tidy. Would recommend to all.

The cafe is inviting and staff welcoming. The cabinet food is well presented, however the sweet products override the savoury. The breakfast ordered was delivered in good time, well presented and tasty, Good coffee too.

My husband & I called in here mid - afternoon for a late lunch & didn't want anything too heavy. The lady serving us happily said that they could split a meal into two plates for us instead of sharing from one plate.... The slices/cakes are mouth watering & different to what you will find in most cafe's. Yum Yum... More

Right beside the Richmond Mall. Very handy for a coffee, breakfast or lunch. Great place for casual business meetings and suitable to impress visitors to the region.

It isn't easy to find a good cafe in Richmond for brunch on 27 December, but we did. The service at Ambrosia is professional and efficient. The coffees are good, and the food tasty.

Bit dissapointing was the ordering at the counter, this makes it all a little less personal and more transactional, like a gasstation. While the food... More
