This has to be one of my favorite places! I have been a few times now and am happy to say every time I go, I really struggle ordering because it all looks amazing! The hotcake was beautifully presented and really yum, but sadly I couldn't finish it. The next time I had the bacon and egg roll which was... More

Good coffee but meh food. We ordered the soft shelled crab burger (small and ordinary), eggs and the ricotta hotcake. I think they tried really hard to be creative with the hotcake which came out as huge single piece instead of 2-3 small pieces at most other places but then the result was a spongy cake that wasn't completely cooked...

I was recommended to visit Top Paddock by a friend and wasn't disappointed. It's a jiving, groovy place with great coffee and eclectic menu. There is seating inside and out, so dogs allowed. Inside there are bid tables that you can share with friends or anyone else that joins you. There are booths, stools, high tables, low tables - quite... More

This is the IT place for brunch presently and a vibrant, bustling place to meet friends, exchange news and people-watch. Arrive after 10am on a weekend/holiday and be prepared to queue for ages. The menu has a wide and creative selection to suit all palates and diets... and the servings were large enough to satisfy. We had long blacks, lattes,... More

Had breakfast again at Top Paddock. Yes, it is still worth the wait, tho this weekend, as it was only the two of us, we were seated straight away. Larger groups need to put their name down with the Door Girl, and wait to be called.. Just a warning, the group of four, with a pram and a child in... More

We have tried to eat at this cafe on numerous occasions, but were turned off by the long queues of people waiting for a table. This morning we succeeded, as it was a weekday and was busy, but had a few spare tables. For breakfast, we chose the omelette with leeks, green tomatoes, jalapeños, and a side of chorizo. It... More

Variety and service. Consistently good. Food is always top notch. Great vibe and always buzzing. Sometimes there is a wait for a table but well worth waiting. Food comes out quickly.

This place has a fabulously busy vibe and awesome coffee. Staff were super friendly and helpful - finding my Mum a proper chair vs a stool during a crazy busy time. The soft shell crab and brioche were delish, as well as the salads and cakes.
