“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Caphs is the place to go when you want a good meal without a lot of fuss and expense. The menu hasn't changed for a few years, thank goodness. You can choose from an array of western, Asian and European favourites. It is always predictably good. All day breakfast and a range of sides means you can put together something you particularly like (for example I like smoked salmon, spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes which you can order with a piece of toast for a delicious, healthy, low fat and inexpensive lunch). The last time I went (March 25) there was a bit of a problem with slow service. But I recommend this place unreservedly for a good practical pleasant meal. The coffee is great and if you have room the baked cheesecake freshly made and delicious. I like the way the owner seems often around, clearing tables and taking a keen interest, even after many years of success. Caphs, please don't change, we Canberra residents love you.

“Good food and dependable service”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Went to Caph's on the advice of a local and found it to have a good range of meals at a reasonable price. I was in Canberra on business for the week so this is the kind of place that i look for when travelling. The specials were great too and the service was quite acceptable. I went on a week night and it was pouring with rain and it was more than half full so that says something too. Well done....

“Great Food and Location in Manukah.”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

Went on the recommendation of a local Canberrian to be surprised at the freshness of thefillet mignon and the multitude of mushrooms that acoompanied the meal.

This cafe got it right for me when in the last minute, my companion retorted that she was allergic to broccoil and the waiter gace her a helping and a half of bok choy.

We chowed down all of it!!!

“Solid dependable Canberra institution?”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We have been coming here for some years. The food is good for the price. The service this visit was excellent.. This is a long established cafe that has survived while others have been and gone. No wonder it's a favourite with locals and visitors. Don't go past the anchovy bread! This visit we had bruchetta and pasta and both were good. YMMV
