Service was poor. After we were sat on a table and got our coffee orders, nobody attended to take our food orders for atleast 25 minutes. Waiters just walked past and avoided us despite seeing that we still have the menu sheets on our table. We had to initiate to look for a waiter to get our orders. Also, when I asked for the bill the waiter just literally gave us the bill receipt and immediately walked away without any instructions where and how to pay. Food is average, too expensive for its worth but hands down to presentation. Ambience is fantastic, too especially the outside area.
I highly recommend the hotcakes, they are incredible. Best hotcakes ever. Really good food and service. I come here like every week, its my favourite little spot.
Was hoping for a 2 hr sitting, was only given a 75 min sitting.. asked that we had to leave
I really like the atmosphere ,good coffee and food.
Great food, prompt service, would definitely book in to go again.
Waffles are amazing and gluten free!
This was a lovely place for a late lunch with family. We sat outside, it was gorgeous and the food delicious with a twist. They didn't have a kids menu but the front of house staff were very obliging and happy to organise the waffles, hotcakes or eggs and bacon to kids size.... We had a really nice time
The waitress was extremely rude and abrupt, she had terrible service and manners.
Amazing food, fantastic service and unbelievable coffee
Caught up with friends, food was great, service was excellent. Highly recommend.
Top paddock is great across the board, great food, cocktails, aesthetic and set up of the cafe, the staff are really friendly and very COVID safe. It was really welcoming and would definitely visit again.
Lovely staff, great food, good vibes! We'll definitely keep coming back
Great food, great services
The food was very good. They make great coffee and staff is very friendly
Food was delicious and staff were so lovely. Would come back again any time!
Great food and loved the outdoor dining idea. Coffee wasn’t as good as I remember from last time but still worth the visit for the meal!
Good food. Nice place. Nothing to outstanding. But still good to visit and have brunch/breakfast here and there.
Best. Will definitely recommend and coming back again
Good value. Would go back.
I has a nice outdoor area too, which looks great for sunny days.
Always a great experience with lovely ambiance and great food and coffee.
Great service from staff.
Great food & mimosas!
Busy inside but nice atmosphere👍🏽
Beautiful as usual, nice waitress, great coffee and great food 🤍
Great cafe, accessible and with good food and service.
lunch with a friend in the open Church st our meal tasty and portion size perfect , when breaking bread with a close friend the quality of the the fare is paramount we loved our lunch thank you
We had breakfast with a friend and enjoyed the food very much. We had the chilli eggs and the top paddock breakfast. All good quality. Coffee was great.
Given the current climate and time limitations the team were very polite and respectful not to push you out and gave us 25+mins notice time was coming up
Love Top Paddock ... it does get very busy so need a bit of patience but all good !
The chili eggs were nothing to write home about. Like atleast nail eggs!
Top Paddock is incredible. Service, food and coffee. Incredible.
This is my go to place when I have to customers out to lunch
Delicious food, coffee not to my taste as have a long black, too bitter.
Great atmosphere in the heart of Richmond. Delicious food!!!
I caught up with an old school friend whom I went to school with in uk after 40 years
Fabulous place for lunch or brunch. Lovely atmosphere and fabulous food and staff. A really interesting menu and everything I have had was delicious. A total must are the ricotta hot cakes. Delicious and a work of art!
I understand we’re in covid restrictions but I don’t appreciate the servers being aggressive when presenting the bill when I hadn’t even finish my coffee due to time constraints. Out of everywhere I have been lately in Melbourne, they approach is quite rude and aggressive.
Good Cafe with interesting menu. Same owners as Kettle Black with some similar menu choices. Lovely food though some options such are quite light. Recommended
Disappointed with beef brisket, turned out to be dry which I did not expect especially in comparison to how it was the last time I ate. First time being disappointed with the place.
Great service and great coffee topped off with a nice bustling vibe. Would also recommend for client meetings.
Good brunch place. Dishes are plated prettily. Ambience is ok if you are happy with club-ish music playing in the background while having brunch.
