Brunch @ The Drawing Room

I caught up with a friend who lives in Crace and decided this was the perfect opportunity to check out the newly opened The Drawing Room at the Crace shops. Located underneath a brand new apartment complex, The Drawing Room looks stylish with large windows and glass doors (that look like they will open up […] Read more…

Brunch @ Muse

After the recent launch of Joe’s Bar at the East Hotel in Kingston, Muse has opened up nearby. Part book store, part wine bar and part cafe, Muse offers a sleek new hangout all day and night. There was no signage out the front of the East Hotel (yet) so J and I walked in […] Read more…

Brunch @ Maple and Clove

I hadn’t been back to Maple and Clove in Barton in years (basically since it first opened) so I made some time to go back and rediscover. I see that the signage out the front now looks better with the green vines growing over the wall. The inside looks modern but down to earth with […] Read more…

Lazy May’s Cafe (Tuggeranong)

Dishes include dessert sliders for breakfast, salads, toasted paninis, tapas, beef short ribs, various burgers including a 16 hour pulled […] Read more…

Brunch @ Red Brick Espresso

One of the cafes that has long been on my list of places to try is suburban favourite Red Brick Espresso at the Curtin Shops. This cafe has been around for a while and it seems that everyone I know has dined here. I knew it was located at the Curtin Shops but I didn’t […] Read more…

Lunch @ Urban Pantry

I hadn’t been back to Urban Pantry in a looong time so it was time to go back and check it out. I remembered Urban Pantry in Manuka as being packed on weekends and it is still the case. J and I walked in and stood around for a while waiting to be seated. It […] Read more…

Burgers @ Grease Monkey (Braddon)

Another week and another Braddon eatery opening! The latest addition to the Braddon precinct is Grease Monkey with ‘burgers you’ll go apesh*t over‘. Grease Monkey is an American burger joint and bar offering 6 types of burgers (with complimentary chips), greasy fried chicken, milkshakes and dessert. There are also 2 breakfast options (with bottomless tea […] Read more…

The Meating Room @ Weston Creek

I’m officially a new homeowner. Hello mortgage. Over the last week, I’ve been packing, moving and unpacking. With no time to cook, it meant a lot of take away food. One morning, I decided to get up early to try a new eatery for breakfast before continuing on with more moving and unpacking. I drove […] Read more…

Barrio Collective Coffee – Braddon

Over the long weekend, a friend and I headed to the newest coffee bar to open in Braddon – Barrio Collective Coffee. Located next to The Hive, the entrance is easy to miss (I walked past it a few times) before noticing the minimal signage against the glass window shopfront. Stepping inside, the coffee bar […] Read more…
