Great spot for breakfast or soup and sandwich, very reasonably priced, quick and quirky service. The owner is the cook, server, and cashier - Penny. She has a crusty exterior but is a softy on the inside. Perfect poached eggs, fluffy pancakes, and quick service.

My friend and I agreed to meet for lunch at the Fisherman's Boot. This cafe is really a dive, that being said one certainly can't complain about the prices. I opted for the homeade soup and sandwich for under $6.00.............how cheap is that?

We went for breakfast a couple times last week. Very inexpensive and well prepared breakfast. Nice to see that not all the diners have disappeared. If you live in Richmond this is a hidden gem.

Penny's cafe is a long time fixture, located in the business end of a busy fishing yard at the end of Trites Road in Richmond. Most regular attendees try not to tell anyone about this sleeper to keep it to themselves! What you will find...More

Breakfast is a basic meal, nothing fancy but sustaining, a foundation for the day and lashings of coffee. The Boot delivers! Well done food, great price, interesting atmosphere but if you need to rest your face on the table no one will object, lots of...More
