Three friends and culinary wizards at the same time Tyler, Gibb, and Lek are working on Paddington Social which is currently taking shape on Given Terrace in the spot formerly occupied by Sichuan Bang Bang and Pizzeria Violetta. The pizza oven has been taken out and the team is hard at work implementing a charming shabby-chic aesthetic inside and out.

Paddington Social’s offering is designed around the venue’s dual kitchens, which allows all three to flex their creative muscles across cafe-style dining, baked goods and a nighttime eats. A typical day at Paddington Social will start at the cafe, which will see Tyler whipping up a menu of classic breakfast options bolstered by a range of baked goods made in house. Gibb will be overseeing the bakery portion, which will not only supply the cafe menu but will also offer a stand-alone range of freshly made croissants, muffins, tarts and more.

No matter what field you work in, it pays to be versatile. Versatility is going to be one of the main draw-cards for Paddington Social, a multi-faceted eatery looking to open in mid-June.
