That soy matcha latte, ommmggggg so good and creamy! As for the breakkie, simply delish. Random online found, which will be a gem I will definitely recommend and come back to. Thank you so much, from the service to the food and the vibe it is a pleasure to see hospitality with such a level of professionalism and greatness! Keep it up! X

I booked a table outside as we had a fluffy with us but when we arrived the table was booked inside. Luckily the restaurant was not busy at the time and we were given a shared outdoor table. Food was okay. The hotcake was huge, v.pretty but too rich, stoggy and sweet (the hot cakes were presoaked with syrup). The chilli scramble was interesting but will not be ordering it again. The atmosphere, decor/indoor outdoor area was good and the staff was very friendly and attentive.

I had the Heirloom tomatoes with the stracciatella - a match made in heaven. Best meal I've had in a while - we're going to do it at home.

My french toast was divine, an amazing balance of flavours and the best brunch out I have had in a long time. My friends blueberry pancakes was one single pancake and was extremely thick and stodgey, she was unable to eat them and was quite disappointed. Described as "a vanilla cake with not enough to cut through the sweet." All other food coming out of the kitchen looked amazing.

LOVED the Top Paddock, a recommendation for breakfast on our visit to Melbourne from Adelaide. Everything fantastic... just too noisy and struggled to hear each other.

Top Paddock seems to be able to maintain a consistently high level of service and quality of food. I recommend making a reservation when available to avoid the wait that can sometimes occur for breakfast or brunch

We booked a table but ended up on one end of a communal table. This has happened before and frankly you should specify if the table is not really a table when the booking is made. The communal table we were on was quite wide and we had to shout across it to talk to each other. Great food but terrible table which should not have been classified as a table on the booking. Would put me off booking this way next time.

Great breakfast selection and awesome service as always. If someone actually buys a caramel slice id love to hear about it in a review, they always look amazing but need to pay off the mortgage not take out a new one :)

I was disappointed with my choice of a kale salad with beetroot and fennel. A huge bowl of kale and a tiny amount of beetroot and fennel. Almost inedible.
My friends hot cakes were very good.
The service was rushed and not particularly friendly.
I won’t return in a hurry.

The food and ambience was great however the experience was a little let down by the service. We were sat in a corner and staff would just walk past without checking in on the section. We had to actively look for someone to take out order. Otherwise, place is great and I would recommend it for a Brunch session.

We went for brunch on Saturday and it was good but nothing special. The food was a bit above average and the staff seemed slightly dis-interested in us. Had heard great things about Top Paddock being one of the best brunch spots in Melbourne but would completely disagree. We left very disappointed.

Overall experience was good. Food and coffee was good. Only thing was, they had ran out of Turkish bread and had to substitute using sour dough, for the beef brisket roll which was disappointing.

For such a popular cafe I was really disappointed. Food is well overpriced and the coffee was awful. Of a group of 6 of us, 3 of us couldn’t drink our coffee. One was sent back and was still terrible when a new one was made

Went to Top Paddock with a friend to try out lunch at cafe. Choice of food on the menu was ok but not fantastic. Quite disappointing. We have been to other cafes that offer similar if not higher quality food than Top Paddock. Serving is small and price is similar to other cafes in Melbourne. Ambience is only ok but not super great. Staff was good and quite attentive.
