Enjoy breakfast with a Colombian twist at Hamilton’s Petrichor & Co
Just off Racecourse Road is a spacious and welcoming cafe that plates up incredible meals made from fresh and ethically sourced ingredients, with a distinct South American spin that will have your tastebuds enraptured.
David Ariza and Paula Moreno are a husband and wife tandem that have spent ten years working in Brisbane’s hospitality scene. Since arriving in Australia from their home country of Colombia, Paula and David have toyed with the idea of opening a cafe of their own, where they could showcase their unmatched love of food and quality, homemade meals. After getting tired of daydreaming about the concept the duo decided to finally go big, opening Petrichor & Co in Hamilton a few weeks ago. Named after the pleasant smell of rain after a dry spell, Petrichor & Co is a similarly refreshing addition to the Racecourse Road dining scene, specialising in all-day breakfast and lunch using organic ingredients with a distinct Colombian flair. A brand new corner space as been fitted out with kitchen facilities and a coffee counter, with an eclectic collection of furniture and plants hanging from the ceiling helping create a lived-in feel.
The menu offers a variety of meals for early risers and midday munchers, with a South American twist present throughout. Sure-fire winners are the huevos rancheros with chorizo and the power seed almond milk porridge with poached pear and berries. Don’t sleep on the rest of the menu though, with plenty of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options on offer. Paula and David are committed to sourcing only the best organic or free-range produce wherever possible, with the bread, milk and beef all organic, plus free range eggs as well. Petrichor & Co will be adding to its menu in the near future, with new additions set to include soups, arepas, breakfast items such as maple hollandaise eggs Benedict, homemade lemonades and healthy smoothies. Coffee lovers will be pleased to know that Petrichor & Co uses Veneziano beans for its brew, complemented by a small selection of tea and chai.
