Dreaming of a South American vacation? Aren't we all. Heading to a Hamilton cafe isn't quite the same, we know — but thanks to Petrichor & Co's menu, it's a cheaper and more convenient way to pretend that you're venturing away from home.

Drawing upon owners Paula Moreno and David Ariza's Colombian heritage, the new addition to Racecourse Road adds a taste of something a bit more far-flung than your usual suburban eatery fare to their house-made daytime menu. That includes Veneziano beans for those after a coffee, plus huevos rancheros with chorizo for breakfast. Who doesn't want to start their day with Mexican-style eggs?

Of course, it's not just the food that'll help satiate your holiday cravings, even if you do opt for something like French toast with pear, caramel popcorn and berries (yes, really), or a quinoa and black bean burger. Sitting in Petrichor's sunny outdoor area will also brighten up your day — and yes, we mean that literally.
