HOT: The Fair Foodstore, 135 Church St, Richmond

Corner stores are a great thing for neighbourhoods, but a corner coffee shop is an even better thing for creating a sense of local community.

HOT: Top Paddock, 658 Church St, Richmond

And the winner is…Top Paddock! From the team behind phenomenally successful cafes APTE, Liar Liar, Three Bags Full and Two Birds One Stone comes a big, bold, seven-day-a-week eatery.
