With stylish, minimalist interiors of whitewashed brick walls and hanging plants, a menu of modern Australian cuisine and a team of baristas serving up expertly crafted cups of coffee, Richmond’s Holla Food & Drink is everything you could ever want in a local cafe, and so much more. Located on Victoria Street, whether it's for a quick caffeine fix, a spot of brunch, a leisurely lunch or some dinner paired with a few cocktails, Holla Food & Drink is a neighbourhood gem. The secret is out of the bag though, so be sure to book ahead in order to snag a table.
They had organised a lovely space for us to sit. Enough room for everyone to sit comfortably but still close enough to chat. Wonderfull decorated space and the food was wonderful!
Very good. food was high standard. well presented and cooked just right. Dumplings soft and tasty, beef cooked perfectly and moist. Excellent home made ice cream. Holla had a Nice variation on offer with staff who were attentive yet not overbearing. One of the better places we have been in the last 12months without doubt.
VERY impressive all around ..... Holla Holla .... Not often I stumbled upon a restaurant that can do breakfast, lunch and dinner well. This medium size establishment along Victoria St, Richmond, Melbourne is just that. By location it's unexpected, as it stand on the esplanade of Melbournes Pho's & Vietnamese food centrum. I must say it's a welcome addition, exceptionally challenging to find a great coffee along this esplanade. An "arty" kinda breakfast & lunch, taste, balance and fantastic presentation - "excelente", we've tried nearly all on the Menu - see photos. Had one of the "hottest" chilli sauce so far ..... insanity. I shouldn't add it as it ruined my Salmon and Rosti, MY MISTAKE, it should go on a burger .... :-) It was a scrumptious, yummy "omakasen" (let the chef cook) Dinner menu. Fresh oysters Sardines on toast with smoked butter and green tomato salsa Housemade pork belly sausage roll with bush tomato ketchup and romesco mayonnaise 450g Porterhouse steak Duck fat roast chat potatoes Radicchio salad with pecorino vinaigrette Cheese plater Just a note to the Chef ..... an interesting Pork belly sausage roll, but I would leave Pork Belly "shape" the way it is :-) Leave the Pork Belly alone ....... don't want to create an uproar with 1,3 billion Chinese. I thank them for allowing us to drink our 2006 Katnook Coonawarra Cab Sauv that was "aired" earlier at home, even at a discouraging corkage charge of $40, it was needed for that Med-rare aged Porterhouse ..... match made in heaven somewhere. They do have some older wines, I think it was a 2009. The only suggestion that I would make, coffee; Rosso is okay but not there yet and not to wear your baseball cap while serving, although it's probably cool, Mama said it's rude. SAT 29/10/2016 Big Breakfast was spot on and med-rare Porterhouse just a tad over-cooked, but good. Please add a bit more than just hand-cut chips and salsa sauce, which did't go well with the Steak, grilled big mushroom, hot mustard sauce perhaps. Coffee and Pinot Noir were perfect companion. Much enjoyable SAT brunch. Thank you.
