Sunday brunching is a favourite Melbourne pastime.
I woke up this particular Sunday with a hankering for Top Paddocks blueberry and ricotta hotcakes,and my mum always told me to listen to my body,and you can’t argue with that reasoning.
Melbourne smiled on me with warm sunshine as we arrived at 9:00am and where asked if we were OK with communal seating.
I’d eat those hotcakes in a dark alleyway so I agreed,hunger wins.On Our previous visits the wait times were about 30 mins and this cafe is always packed and today was not a exception.
The location is on Church St in Richmond amongst all the furniture shops ,one of my favorite shopping strips. This café has many appealing attributes,from a well thought out menu to beautiful timber & white tiles interior that gives off an open airy feel, while you feast together with all the other trend setters and go getters .
All the dishes here are beautifully presented and taste delicious.
You can not go wrong with whatever you choose on the menu with both a good selection of sweet and savoury dishes.
Top Paddock most famous and instagramed dish is of course the hotcakes if you live in Melbourne or have guests this is a must have dish.
The top paddock team also run Two Birds One Stone & The kettle Black
