Brown Cardigan Cafe

Wearing something woolly, warm and the colour of coffee is optional.

No, Paddington's newest eatery doesn't have a dress code, but no one at Brown Cardigan Cafe will stop you wearing something woolly, warm and the colour of coffee. And yes, if you've been to Decked Cafe on Latrobe Terrace, you'll probably feel like you've been here before.

After a significant makeover, the revamped, renamed space is now big on bench seating and big on comfort, if the new moniker hadn't already given away the latter. Think of it as the kind of place you could settle into for a long-haul brekkie or a lazy lunch. Or both, should the feeling strike (and we predict that it might).

When a cafe boasts Mars, Oreo, Malteser and Cherry Ripe milkshakes on their menu, you know you're not going to want to leave in a hurry. Pairing one with an early morning burger will give you a great dose of sweet and savoury sensations, whether you go for the egg and bacon option, or one laden with spinach and haloumi too. Or, opt for a sandwich and coffee for lunch; it's a classic combo for a reason. Either way, you won't want to rush out the door — but you will want to hurry back.
