New York Tomato ~ Richmond


Located in the hidden backstreets of Richmond, where New Street and York Street meet, hence its name New York Tomato, is a gem of a find. Maybe it's because on the day I was in good company or perhaps the coffee and the chef worked their particular magic on me; nevertheless I found comfort in its simple surrounds, enjoyed my food and coffee, and my imagination was titillated by the fact that it was a conversion from someone's actual home.

The cafe business itself has changed hands a few times, but I'm told the building itself is still owned by the same owners whom also have other businesses i.e. The Aviary Hotel and The Vic Bar in Abbotsford.

New York Tomatos very own brand and blend of coffee and teas


The current owners of the New York Tomato, John and Raul have owned it for the last year and a half and have developed their own line of coffee and teas. Organic rainforest alliance coffee by Melba is their own brand and it was delicious. The teas are organic as are their soft drinks and they also serve alcoholic beverages.

They cater to vegetarians, vegans and gluten free diets on request and have quite a good selection on the menu ranging from $7 to $19. They choose to use organic or Fairtrade products but don't do split bills or large changes to menu items on the weekend.

Delicious !


Don't you love the sound of Bircher muesli with blanched almonds, grated green apple, cinnamon, backyard honey, berry compote and natural yoghurt? There's a choice of home made jams, honey, curds and preserves for your organic toast or you can have some gluten free macadamia and cranberry muesli to name a few. There's a variety of bruschetta, baked eggs, and some NYT favourites like autumn eggs which are poached with beetroot relish, duka, spicy hummus, baby spinach and Danish feta. There's also various sides you can add to complete your breakfast.

They have classics like pumpkin salad, carrot and chickpea pancake, quesadilla and others along with toasties and fresh sandwiches New York Tomato style. Didn't I say it was a gem of a find? They do not have a webpage, but do have a Facebook presence. Dessert is not listed on the menu, however they do have cakes, slices, croissants and such like at the counter.

The cafe is open Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm during the week and on the weekend they start at 7.30 am on the Saturday and 8am on the Sunday with a finishing time of 4pm
