Archie’s All Day is officially your number one destination for food in Melbourne. Add it to the top of your list ASAP because it is out of this world, incredible! Located in the ever so cool Gertrude Street of Fitzroy, this cafe turned diner, hits all the right buttons. For starters, the graphics and fitout of the place is bang on perfect, with pops of pink amongst the white and timber.
Secondly, and most importantly, the food is delicious! The menu proves very difficult to choose between the many incredible options, but rest assure, no matter what you pick, you won’t be disappointed. My sister and I couldn’t just pick one each, so let’s just say we were full for quite a long time. The Ricotta Hotcakes with Lemon Curd, Roasted White Chocolate, Coconut Rice Crisps, Mascarpone and Lemon Verbena Syrup is hands down the best breakfast I think I’ve eaten. In fact it trumps the scrambled eggs at Bills in London, which is huge! The lemon is not at all sour, the hotcakes themselves are light and fluffy and the coconut rice crips provide the most perfect crunch. I even liked the mascarpone! Honestly, I could not fault it at all. It was much the same story for the Smashed Avocado Toast with Fetta and Dukkah. The flavours and the fresh ingredients are what make this so incredibly special. Lastly, the Vanilla Oatmeal with Banana, Pecan, Coconut and Maple, is something so different to anything we have ever tried.
Basically, this place is hands down, home to the best breakfast I have ever eaten. So do yourself a favour and go there the next time you’re in Melbourne!
