Ten Places to Visit in Paddington September 10 2014, 0 Comments

Some days are made for journeying through vintage treasures, snacking on delicious foods, and getting lost in whimsical nooks. Paddington is all about these days, and so are we! To help you along with planning out your ultimate day, we have compiled a list of our Ten Places to Visit in Paddington. 

 

 

Atticus Finch Cafe - 83 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington

"Good coffee, good food, good company, good times."

For complete enjoyment, I'd recommend bringing along a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. Couldn't hurt, could it?

 

 

Francesca's Flowers: Cafe Florist - 46 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington

"Francesca's flowers is a florist in Paddington with a relaxing tea room specialising in exquisite teas. For the caffeine addicted we have awesome coffee."

 

Your eyes are in for a treat as much as your taste buds are! This is the place to forget about your worries for a while. If you'd like to get crafty and want to exercise your green thumb, Francesca's Flowers also runs regular workshops.

 

 

Kettle and Tin - 215 Given Terrace, Paddington

"Located in the hub of Brisbane’s bar and dining scene, our Paddington Queenslander is a bustling meccah for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and late night drinks."

 

Need to start the day right or need to wind down after work? Look no further than number 215.

 

 

Le Bon Choix - 251 Given Terrace, Paddington

"The sumptuous creations of Le Bon Choix are more than just an indulgence of the palate."

 

It's like Chanel ... for bakeries. The gorgeous architecture of Le Bon Choix is complemented perfectly by its delicious baked goods. For the record, I highly recommend their caramel donuts.

 

 

Blake & Taylor: New & Recycled Furniture Pieces - 11 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington

"When inside the store, look up to see the original curved metal butchers rail where they once hung the meat. It is now used to display vintage English tubs, beautiful vintage frames and other interesting objects."
One step inside will have you inspired.

 

Hobohemia - 285A Given Terrace, Paddington

“'My Hobohemia is the place to be.' We hope you'll agree ...”

 

With all these intricate treasures, it would be hard to disagree.

 

 

 

Knitch - 85 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington

"Knitting, crochet, felting, workshops, create, handmade."

You can't miss this beautiful place. Just keep an eye out for the crocheted everything!

 

 

Government House - 168 Fernberg Road, Paddington

"His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC is the 26th Governor of Queensland and representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queensland’s Head of State."

 

Beautiful gardens and rippling flags set the scene for a day at Government House.

 

 

Retro Metro: Quality Second-Hand Clothing - 297 Given Terrace, Paddington

Every item has a story. Every shelf is filled with decades and must-haves.

 

 

And last but not least ...

Ra Ra Superstar - 284 Given Terrace, Paddington

We couldn't resist, for we treasure sustainable, vintage, and handmade fashion and accessories. If you're feeling nostalgic, why not come by and play dress ups? Follow the pink-brick-road and canopy of multicoloured umbrellas.

 

 

 Are you ready for some adventure?

Lots of love,
