“Nice For Brunch”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I ordered the Big Ben and it was definitely one of the best brunches I've had in a long time! It wasn't too crowded and service was quite good.

“Perfect for a tasty, quick lunch.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Sandwiches were awesome! Service was efficient and we managed to having a relaxing work lunch relatively quickly, also love that they had no problems splitting the bill.

No cutlery was provided and the sandwiches are so big, tasty bits fall out, and the only napkin provided was under the giant sandwich so wasn't much use. (Maybe we are messier eaters than most?)

“Great tasting food, good service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Breakfast was delicious and was served up quickly together with our drinks. Service was warm and friendly, and kids enjoyed the cushions that were lying around. Will return when we next visit Canberra again. The menu was extensive and everything sounded good!

“Casual lunch under the arches”
Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

This cafe is in a nice location in an old building on the city fringe. Fantastic sandwich selection and they use free range meats and eggs. Lots of gluten free sweets on offer and fresh squeezed juice. Service can be v sloppy. On my last visit my order was unavailable but the waitress didn't inform me for a good 30 minutes. That's.not the first time I have had trouble - they often run out of vegetarian selections. It's a nice place on a sunny day as long ad you have time to spare..
