Really enjoyed the decor, food is great and service is fine. Pretty cramped seating area during covid but over all great for lunch with a friend
Great airy venue with v friendly staff. Large satisfying serves. Coffee could be stronger, but definitely recommend
The potato rosti was undercooked and very floury
Lovely food all very fresh and tasty. Great veg options.
Great food and atmosphere. It is a very busy cafe and service was lacking due to this.
Very noisy and difficult to hear. Food good. Serve staff nice just need to check water and drinks more regularly.
I absolutely love that place! The food is always amazing and the service is normally amazing too, however this time I felt that it wasn’t as good as usual. They never asked us if we were after more food or beverages and just brought the bill straight away when we actually wanted to other more food and also it took them a very long time to clean the table.
Great service and ambience but I paid $24 for an extreme amount of maple syrup on the much anticipated ricotta cakes. Dish completely ruined by the hot cake swimming in sweet sickly syrup…
Acoustically challenge, need more staff as service was slow.
I felt like this spot was the emperors new clothes. The food lacked anything special about it and was ridiculously over priced. I paid $6 for a side of avocado and I got half an avocado still in its shell with a spoon and a wedge of lime. Avocados are currently $1 each!
Our toast didn't even come buttered! A child's breakfast was an unbuttered piece of thick dry toast with a poached egg on the side.
The juices and smoothies were nice though.
Also, it was very loud... don't go if you want a nice catch up with someone because it's too loud and your table is only for 75 minutes!
great coffee, food was good but we had to wait a long time for our food to arrive.
Always a good choice for a lovely breakfast catch up with friends. My advice is go early to beat the queues and the rising noise level that occurs when it is busy, the noise can make a nice catch up a terrible one.
Thanks for making my birthdays special! Food was delicious :)
Always love dining here and Kettle Black. Love their ricotta pancakes. I just think they are on the pricier side.
Great place for breakfast or brunch. Good coffee.
My wife and I enjoyed a “post-lockdown” celebratory brunch at Top Paddock. I had ‘The top paddock’ which is their version of a big breakfast - superb cooking and generously portioned. My wife had the eggs Benedict which she found very tasty. Service was prompt, warm and hospitable. Overall a fantastic way to be done with lockdown 4.0. Thank-you for your hospitality, Top Paddock, we’ll see you guys again sometime.
Beautiful place very attentive staff food was tasty and beautifully presented unfortunately I didn’t finish my food due to discovering a long strand of hair imbed in my food we were offered a small version replacement to take away as I didn’t want to eat any further & at the start of one of our coffees we had a small hair floating on the top. We did alert our waitress and it was handled very well and professionally
Delicious food, good coffee. Nice ambience and not too busy. Imagine it can get very noisy when really pumping.
Great food (esp the waffles), beautiful cafe, good service
Good food, service was a little bit slow - very large dining area.
Wonderful ambiance, excellent service, beautiful food. Thank you for a great experience.
Food + drink was delicious but ambience was a little noisy. The service was a like over zealous..the waitress stood at our table waiting for me to put the last morsel in my mouth and my plate was whisked away...
Food is good however it is definitely overpriced. $5 for one piece of halloumi!
Great tasty interesting fresh food. Friendly service.
Food was very normal, not have much options. Food and coffee were cold
Great food and coffee. I would recommend Top Paddock highly
Great Ambience. Food was nice but pretty standard. service good.
great food and service - enjoyed the space. Will return for lunch
Staff showed us to our seat and then completely ignored us. Had to ask for a coffee after 15mins and to have our order taken.
Very accommodating when I asked for an extra two seats to be added to my original booking of 8. Service staff tried very hard, only hiccup being one plate being collected before the person was finish - that dish had come last by a fair amount of time and to person in question is a slow eater, so I am sympathetic to why that mistake occurred. In any event, they fixed that issue. I do wish there was more flexibility with booking times as we had to wait around a bit before we could sit down (post yoga class group brunch).
Good as usual. Limited menu. Not much for children. Noisy
We ordered coffee, egg Benedict and buttermilk hotcake. Both dishes were in good size. Dishes came fast.
I am not a coffee expect but I like the decaf soy latte, very smooth, well balanced to my taste.
Eggs were perfectly cooked. Interesting to find out that the restaurant used a kind of a potato rosti with coconut instead of sourdough or bread in the egg Benedict dish. Personally I prefer bread. The thick bacons were tasty and not dry.
Maybe I am a “sweet” person. I really like the buttermilk hotcake. Visually the dish was filled with color. It had different kind of flavors that blended smoothly, and bite sensations with soft from hotcake, blueberry and ricotta cheese , crunch from grains, nuts, and slightly brown bottom of the hotcake that made the dish more fulfilling. I will order it again though I found it was a bit too sweet.
Excellent menu. Great ambience - love the light, airy space of Top Paddock. Will definitely return!
A great menu and good wine selection, I also loved the fit out. Service was a little bit hit and miss but overall a very enjoyable experience!
Service was great and the food came out at reasonable time! I had the pork belly and it just melted in the mouth
Absolutely loved the food, excellent customer service and the vibes. Outside was stunning!
Hey Chloe, Your excellent feedback is most appreciated. We will make sure to pass your praise along to the team on the floor and in the kitchen. we look forward to seeing you back at Top Paddock soon. Kindly the Team at Top Paddock
Some lovely food here in this bustling cafe. Great for groups! Though be warned - it does get quite noisy during peak times.
Make sure you talk to the wait staff if you have any allergies or dietary requirements to avoid any confusion at the start.
Food was amazing. We had a great time. The only bad thing was it was noisy.
Coffee wasn’t drinkable! Disgusting very disappointing for a $120 breakfast
We were there on a public holiday so a 15% surcharge was added to the bill which is fine if the staff are getting paid penalty rates. But wouldn’t they get that on every Sunday anyway ?
I found the menu restricted in options and could do with 2 or 3 extra items particularly a meat and salad option.
Quality of food and coffee is outstanding.
Service was very friendly and helpful but ran off her feet.
We passed up on a 2nd coffee after lunch as no one came near us while she had a break.
