Julien Moussi’s got plenty of hospitality cred: he’s part-owner of The Collective and Boss Pizzeria, and he heads up Camberwell’s My Other Brother. For Legacy he’s working with Kristy-Lea Deva and Nicky Campbell (who doubles as executive chef).
Positioned on the ground floor of an upmarket apartment complex, Legacy features a liberal use of red brick – on the floor, in the furniture and even as a feature wall. It’s a solid fit-out and surprisingly bright considering the main materials used.
The menu is health-conscious with colourful variations on the usual suspects such as kale, açai and chia seeds. There are raw superfood smoothies such as the protein-powdered Purple Paradise, with mango, blueberries and mint.
Options such as the pulled pork, full cooked breakfast and fried chicken will ensure no stomach goes home empty. There are also doughnuts and pastries made on the premises.
Single origin and filter coffees are by Small Batch, with a custom blend from Dimattina for the rest.
