Watch out Melbourne, It appears that Adelaide is beginning to adopt the reputation of being a city of Instagram-worthy breakfasts. Karma and Crow, Richmond’s hidden gem of breakfast heaven, is certainly contributing to this and putting us on the map.
You know those gorgeous fluffy hotcakes with candied bits and what appears to be fairy floss that pop up over social media? Well Karma and Crow is where you can devour them again and again – I think I’m going to need to stop myself going back to eat these pancakes every Sunday breakfast. Their famous ricotta hotcakes are served with poached stone fruit, praline butter, labneh, sesame and hazelnuts topped with floss and maple. The hot cakes were fluffy, all toppings were perfectly balanced and each bite gave a new explosion of flavour in my mouth – I would recommend this dish a thousand times over.
The menu is completely unique and offers more than just the stock-standard bacon and eggs- it features coconut sago pudding, house cornbread served with spicy chorizo, tomato salsa, chipotle and avocado moose, and roasted pumpkin on ciabatta served with sautéed greens, tahini and feta, roasted cauliflower, and crunchy pepitas – just to name a few. Not to mention, the baristas at Karma and Crow can make a decent cup of coffee. That is really all you can ask for on a Sunday morning. Their breakfast, lunch, drinks and coffee are available for takeaway and are vegan-friendly.
This café and artist studio collective are tucked away on Richmond rd. but you know you’ve reached it when you see the huge ‘coffee’ sign on the white exterior, lighting up the path to brunch heaven. Once you’re inside there’s an abundance of greenery from living plants, high ceilings, natural light, revamped old furniture, quirky home ware pieces, and all-round cheerful vibes. Karma and Crow offers table service by the approachable and accommodating staff.
They give local creatives the opportunity to use their beautiful studio space to showcase their pieces or run workshops. Last month, Karma and Crow hosted a recycled clothing market featuring brands such as Camilla, Witchery, Country Road, Zara and more. This Sunday they will be introducing their first textile workshop where participants will create a beautiful hand-crafted loom kits with Rachel from Wunder Weave.
Go on, head to Karma and Crow next time you’re looking for the ultimate Instagram and to-die-for breakfast.
