The Avocado's rise to fame and the generation it represents have undergone much criticism, with many experts eagerly awaiting their collective downfall. But they obviously don't eat at Touchwood in Richmond…

Not only is the avo-smash alive and well at this inner-city cafe, it's absolutely thriving and even offers a value for money that even top economists would not dare deny - should they emerge from the Twittersphere!

Here, in one of Melbourne's most expensive suburbs, the creamy GEN Y 'gold' is piled so high that you can't help mentally calculate the number of avocados used (at least 2) and divide it by the reasonable $16 bill.

Perched on a throne of two generously-sized slices of sourdough and topped with mixed seeds and fresh coriander, the sides of beetroot relish and pickled red onion are the glass slipper to this tasty brunch dish.

Add a poached egg (for $4) and there's no way anyone in their right mind would ever choose to save for a house deposit instead.
