Lodged in Joburg’s unofficial bookworm capital, Richmond, this brand spanking new cafe has grown in popularity with Milpark, Auckland Park and Melville locals. The Richmond Studio Cafe is owned by ex The Star photographer, Antoine de Ras and INL editor, Mantombi Makhubele.
The Richmond Studio Cafe is decorated in similar fashion as eateries found in neighbouring Melville. You can expect face brick walls, old cameras and wooden table tops. The shop specialises in coffee, cakes, pastries and brunch menu items. Enjoy savoury croissants and other exciting breakfast and lunch options. Steering the kitchen is Cape Town born Stuart “The Chef” McClarty, who is well known for his baking prowess.
The Richmond Studio Cafe is home to freelancers, journalists and creatives who sit down for their daily java fix. Do yourself a solid and check this cafe out before it becomes too cool… well, you know what we mean.
