After having quite a miserable saturday, our weekend was definitely not off to a great start… In an attempt to lighten our dull moods today we treated ourselves to a lovely lunch at Richmond’s fabulous Feast of Merit. Boy were we overwhelmed!
Where to even begin…
We should start by acknowledging their philosophy:
‘..Being local, ethical and sustainable is part of what drives our philosophy. Feast of Merit is a social enterprise owned and run by YGAP. All of our profits help make the world a better place… Consider our food as Middle Eastern spring meets Melbourne… We deliver this with our farm to table philosophy.’
Keeping this in mind we could immediately see their approach to food through their menu options. With their menu evidently being all about providing food that is sustainable and wholesome.
Without a question we were drawn to their selection of hearty salads and choice of added protein (milawa chicken, BBQ fish or beef)
Opting for milawa chicken with a roasted root vegetable salad, we were quite literally blown away and unable to find the worlds to describe the explosion of intense flavours that made us feel so good inside.
Despite our temptations to devour Feast’s jugs of sangria, we finished our meal off with a rich long black. Just d i v i n e.
This meal took us back to that one time in Berlin where we came across a beautiful cafe called Oliv. We enjoyed the most amazing feed of our trip, that being a chicken leg accompanied with a chickpea and feta salad. Delish!

Anyway, about five hours ago when we were actually sitting at their wooden tables, sipping coffee out of their ceramic cups.. We were attempting to find the right words that would paint a picture of the setting for you all. So when it comes to their interior, we’ve decided that it simply reminds us of a rustic farm house.
Keeping this short and super sweet, we would like to just say that this cafe is truly i n s p i r a t i o n a l and all for a good cause. Definitely check out Feast of Merit. It is every cafe junkies heaven.
