Braddon

Lunching @ Marble & Grain

The latest eatery to open up in the Braddon precinct is Marble & Grain at the newly opened Avenue Hotel. From its name, and emblem of a cow in a suit pouring a glass of wine, it’s safe to suspect there to be a menu filled with meat and wine. My partner and I are […] Read more…

Brunch @ Eightysix

I missed out on trying brunch at Eightysix during Good Food Month so I was really happy when I found out Eightysix brunch is here to stay! Brunch only available Sunday’s. I headed in early in the morning and got a seat at the kitchen counter (best seats in the house). I’d seen a sample […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Lonsdale Street Roasters 7

I took a few days of leave and, of course, planned my days around where I would eat. I decided to finally try out Lonsdale Street Roasters 7 after its expansion onto the second floor of the building. I went in for an early morning breakfast and it was already busy with people hanging around […] Read more…

Weekend brunch @ Black Fire

After my first visit to Black Fire for lunch last weekend, a group of friends and I went back to try out the breakfast menu.

First look @ Black Fire (Braddon)

I’d been eagerly waiting for Black Fire Restaurant in Braddon to open its doors. Specialising in authentic Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine, the dinner and dessert menu was up on the website before the restaurant was even open causing me some serious hunger pangs. Located on Mort Street in the Habitat apartment complex (next to the […] Read more…

Lunch @ Vitis Eatery Braddon

Vitis Eatery opened up in Braddon a few weeks ago taking over what was O’stratos on Lonsdale Street. The restaurant is open and spacious with bi-fold windows at the front that open up for diners sitting at the bar area to look out onto the street. Cage-like fencing surrounds the bar and is filled with […] Read more…

Opening night @ Bentspoke Brewing Company

The highly anticipated double-storey microbrewery, Bentspoke Brewing Company, had its opening yesterday at 11am. Co-owned by former head brewer at the Wig and Pen, Richard Watkins, a crowd of Canberra beer lovers were there for opening day/night. Located in the Habitat apartment complex in Braddon, I could see a queue outside at 5.30pm as I […] Read more…

First time @ Lonsdale St Roasters 23

After receiving news that Lonsdale Street Roasters’ brand new kitchen was open, I headed in one morning to try out breakfast. I made my way to the counter where a massive blackboard with the menu written in chalk hangs against the wall. I see that Flute Bakery bread is used at LSR 23 as they […] Read more…

First look @ Tranquilo Espresso

On a cold grey morning, some friends and I decided to brunch at the recently opened Tranquilo Espresso, which replaces Four Buds cafe. Located on the ground floor of the Mode 3 building on Lonsdale Street, the small cafe faces Autolyse and Lonsdale Street Roasters 23. The cafe is in a small nook with just […] Read more…
