Ristretto & Co
156-158 Northumberland St
Located in the heart of Liverpool, Ristretto & Co. is a cosy and snug café offering an all-day breakfast menu with delicious Campos coffee.
Walking down the small pathway into the seating area, we were greeted with a beautiful atmosphere full of colour and plants. Looking at the extensive menu it took a while for us to be able to decide! Eventually, we decided on something familiar, something new, and something sweet.
First up was the big veggie breaky. We chose scrambled eggs to sit on the side of the silverbeet, roast mushrooms, avocado, haloumi cheese and toast. It was a breakfast with plenty of different things on the plate - a smorgasbord all in one. It was big too so you won’t go hungry if you have this one.
Second were the corn and zucchini fritters with tomato and avocado salsa, rocket and a perfectly poached egg. It was another dish with plenty on it. We love fritters and having them topped with salsa and an egg completes it all so nicely.
Deciding to treat ourselves, the third dish was waffles with vanilla gelato, shredded roasted coconut, salted caramel sauce popcorn, fresh berries, maple syrup and Persian pashmak. It was bold and colourful and full of flavour. Can you resist going straight for the pashmak? We couldn’t!
To perfectly complement the wonderful food, we ordered a freshly squeezed orange, lemon and ginger juice and a steaming hot cappuccino.
We loved our visit to Ristretto & Co. The food was great, the service was too and it was such a lovely place! Thank you to all the staff there for taking care of us! Special thanks to Claire and April from CPM Online Marketing for arranging this visit.
