Conveniently located outside the building I’m interning at, Top Paddock is my go-to coffee place in Richmond, and so much more.
Firstly (and clearly the most important factor), the coffee is fab. It’s a little pricey, but quite normal for the area, and definitely worth it!
When you first walk in, the cafe has a ‘to-go’ counter from which you can satiate your caffeine cravings. If you’re feeling a bit peckish, grab one of the little treats (vegan options, obvi) to take with you!
The rest of the large space is for dining in, with extra tables outside for sunny days (or those brave enough to face the winter chill). Your mouth will quite literally water when reading the ‘eat in’ menu, but if you don’t want to face the ever-present crowd of Melbournites that flock to the cafe, the take away options are equally amazing!
