Since new chef was arrived, they use fresh ingredient and they have best hamburgers in Canberra. Also look out for lunch specials on the board!

Not many good place around the G for Brekky but this place never disappoints, my breakfast today was so yummy. Poached eggs, bacon, hash brown, wilted spinach and mushrooms with capsicum relish on yummy toast. The coffee and juice was lovely as well. Well done Early Doors keep up the good work. The staff are very friendly as well.

Early Doors is small quiet cafe, the one where you could sneak down there for a couple of hours and knock out some work on your notebook. I've caught up with many people there for an informal chat. Look, we go there regularly and the food is always cooked well and its nice. The prices are reasonable as well. You... More

This is our second time back here and we completely forgot how beautiful the food is. Just had the chef special "French Burger" and the taste was nice, clean and simple. Nothing overdone and the meat patty was one of the best I have tasted. Also tried my first "ice long black" and completely hooked now. Give the place a... More

This is such a cute, roomy, relaxed, café......I just loved it. Indoors and outdoor seating. The lunch was, a toasted turkey, brie, and cranberry sandwich: but it was the best. Just the right size.
