Tall Short Espresso



Tall Short Espresso is a bright cheery little coffee den that makes a perfect caffeine stop for Paddington commuters or those who like to linger with a morning paper.

Pull up a stool at the wall bench, a chair at the recycled wooden communal table or on the window banquette and enjoy a cup of excellent Dimattina coffee (beans of which are also for sale) and, if hungry, a side of muffins, banana bread, friands or iHeart Brownies.

And, from Friday to Sunday evenings Tall Short Espresso becomes a tiny community bar with crowds hanging out in the window and spilling on to the street. On the menu are craft beers, espresso martinis and the signature gingerbread mantini, with gourmet pies, cheese, crackers and snacks.

Need to know: you can text ahead on 0435 794 236 to order the coffee ready on arrival.

Nice to know - Four legged friends can also refresh here with a water bowl and their own bit of astroturf provided on the footpath.
