Paddington Grind: Cafe, Paddington (14 Sept 2016)

339 Oxford St, Paddington NSW 2021

Humble cafe in Paddo

Seems like a very humble family run cafe. The decor is simple and a bit tired looking but the friendly service gives it a cosy feeling as you watch the local regulars popping in for their morning coffee fix. Chai Latte ($4) uses Chai Me Organic Chai with quite a nice flavour. Skim Latte ($4) perhaps a little pricey but uses Toby's Estate Coffee with a strong flavour kick. Babyccino ($0.50) comes with two marshmallows and I'm surprised how well they do this one. Comes in a paper cup and has about half froth and is quite a reasonable price. Blueberry Bagel and cream cheese ($5.50) is good although not sure why it's served with vegemite on the side. Bacon and Egg Roll with caramelised onion and barbeque sauce ($8.50) is pretty tasty and a decent size to fill you up for a breakfast on the run. There's a few muffins and pastries at the counter and a fridge in the middle of the cafe with plenty of sausage rolls stacked up on the bottom shelf. Must be a popular choice for some reason. If you have toddlers just keep in mind the cushions on the wall bench aren't fixed so can easily slide off which can be a little dangerous for them. I think these guys are so old school they're not on social media — just pure and simple hospitality.
