Why Us You Ask?

We embrace and draw from our forefathers middle eastern heritage but revel and embrace our bae, Australia. Which is why as modern Australians we have a menu that reflects the food we all love from around the world, including middle eastern, Italian and Asian. As a modern Australian eatery there are no worries if you want to switch up a dish a little. Our chefs are happy to make or tweak a dish so that it titillates your desires.

If you haven't experienced us before, you are missing out! We have a reputation for consistently high quality food, a super friendly team catering to your every culinary whim and a warm welcoming and fun atmosphere. If you don't feel comfortable enough to unbutton your pants after eating such a great meal with us, the only reason could be because you must have accidentally forgotten your underwear. Anyone who has ever met someone with Lebanese blood in them and let's be honest, this is Australia so who hasn't? Knows, that we will not let you out of our sight until we have fed you the greatest food ever known to man to the point you can't walk. Only then when you are euphoric from great food and drink will we let you go.

We don't just change with the times with our ever changing and updating menu here at Niche on Bridge in Richmond either, we change with the hour! We have a full breakfast menu in the morning. Let's face it, house be damned... life is not complete without smashed avocado! We all know that! During the day we are a cafe serving the best coffee in the world because, this is Melbourne after all. Then at night we are a full restaurant. We never get bored or boring around here with that much going on in a day, every day.
