‘Tiger mottle' is apparently the pattern that emerges on the surface of a perfectly extracted espresso, which should give you some indication as to how seriously this Paddington cafe takes its coffee. Housed in a restored terrace, Tiger Mottle has been attracting both purists and more adventurous coffee drinkers since it opened in mid-2008. Along with the usual suspects, you'll find drinks like the ‘maple mottle' - a double ristretto with maple syrup, chilli and cream. The breakfast fare is nothing to be sneezed at either, with a menu that includes coconut pancakes, house-made muffins, bubble and squeak and a breakfast salad.
