“Consistently good coffee, great cooked breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The popularity of This Cafe tells the story. Coffee and cooked breakfasts are definitely their strengths. Service is usually fast and the staff are very friendly. A mix of clients from retirees and families to 'tradies' and business people.

I have coffee here about 5 times per week - have been known to find an excuse to stop and have one. The baristas at This Cafe are among the most consistently good in Canberra and they use a coffee I really like (Vittoria premium).

I've also had their cooked breakfast (eggs, bacon, etc) on several occasions. Goods sized and tasty breakfasts at a fair price.

I had lunch here once - it wasn't quite up to the standard I hoped for, so I've stuck with breakfasts & coffees since.

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Good value, portions are big and the food is good. It's nothing special but if you're after a decent feed, this is the place to go.

“Fast friendly good quality food. With brillian t coffee. Bravo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten here six times now and every time has been good. The staff are helpful and show they are interested to serve you. (Often rare in Canberra). The food is well prepared and served quickly. The coffee is great and was served before we got back to the table. Although the decor is a little bland the atmosphere is still better than other places in the area. Well worth the visit on a lazy day.

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This Cafe is always a good spot to visit.
Last time we ate breakfast there, I decided that I just had to share this experience.
The service here is always friendly and very prompt, you order from the front desk and pay for it, then they bring the order to your table.
We ordered bacon and eggs (scrambled) and Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and bacon. We also ordered cappuccinos.
The coffee arrived promptly and the meals shortly after.
I was surprised when the chef brought the meals to the table personally.
The presentation was superb, something that you would expect from a 5 star restaurant.
Talk about pride in your work!
The meals were cooked perfectly and we were very satisfied.
The cafe is well situated just outside Gungahlin Marketplace and captures the traffic heading into Woolies.
You can sit inside or outside, but in the Canberra winter we chose inside as we are wimps.
If you are heading past, call in and visit, you will be pleasantly surprised!
