Torch is a funky cafe that lights up Swan Street in Richmond. It's one of the standout cafes along Swan Street with its grungy if not quirky design and yellow and charcoal themes. Very Richmond colours.

Ambience is enhanced by the cool modern art wall (including the funky animals), concrete floor, open counter area, yellow stools, retro tables and black communal table and yellow lamps from the ceiling.


Torch serves up great coffee with Genovese blends (one of my favourites as it has a strength I like).


Torch also does the business on breakfast options with Smashed avo on Noisette sourdough, and the ability for add ons such as the poached eggs I ordered. With slices of chilli on the avo this baby has some kick. 


Torch also serves up excellent Scrambled eggs with chilli, a cafe favourite. Or go for the Corn fritters or the delish cakes.


Torch has friendly engaging staff and a good number of regulars enjoy this cafe. An excellent sound system and ambient tunes make for a chilled experience.

 Torch is a great destination on Swan Street.
