“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

I always go to Good Brother before work, the coffee is always tasty and keeps me going all morning no matter who makes it. Their muffins are pretty good as well. And the free wi fi is a bonus.

“Good Brother is...Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Hidden away in an walkway off the side of the main Dickson drag, Good Brother is one of those places you long to find. It's a little bit different, slightly hidden and the people who go there know what they're looking for- tasty food and good coffee.

The inside's a bit dark but they also have some outdoor space. Service is generally quick, the coffee of good quality and well made (have had one burnt one though). The food is tasty but can tend on the slightly expensive side for what you get.

For those wanting an alternative to just your standard cup of coffee, Good Brother is worth seeking out- I'm glad I did, ditto for my wife and daughter!

“One of the best coffee places in Canberra!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

This coffeeshop is hidden in Dickson Plaza, but offers fabulous coffee. They although serve tasty food and egg & bacon rolls. When I lived in Downer, I would always stop by at this place to taste fantastic coffee in Canberra! Expensive although good value for money. Bring cash.

“Excellent coffee and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

I am stoked that finally there is a cafe serving Campos coffee in Canberra! Breakfast is excellent too - the salmon frittata was freshly made, creamy and delicious. I will definitely go back.

“Surcharge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Outdoor breakfast with family, spent $140 then wanted to charge $5 to put on my cc.
Need to say upfront that here is a cc surcharge.
