Tree of Us is the North Richmond cafe quietly churning out some of the best burgers in town. The venue was acquired by Andrew Carr in 2015, who's all about matching flavours and believes in quality over quantity, though the portions are still pretty generous.

Chef Cameron Thomas combines premium grass- fed beef patties from Swan Street’s Berties Butcher with well-balanced ingredients inside a brioche bun. Stand-outs include the onion rings paired with The Lumberjack – a burger consisting of Two Birds Ale and chilli pulled beef with slaw and house jalapeño-and-barbeque sauce.

The usual breakfast fare (granola, toast, omelettes) is served until 4pm. There's Atomica coffee and $2 Beroccas for any hungover desperados, but it’s that lunch menu that really makes this place.

Inside, drop- down lights mingle with hanging plants. Quiet murmurs fill the small space and the timber tables are filled with a constant rotation of regulars. Outside, the walls are adorned with colourful graffiti by local artist Putos. The back courtyard is a rustic deck bathed in afternoon sun.
