Lunch @ Frankies at Forde

I don’t remember how I came across gastropub Frankies at Forde, but the website menu had such a variety of food that I organised a group lunch there one weekend. There is plenty of indoor seating as well as outdoor seating out by the street and in a rear courtyard. Orders including drinks are taken […] Read more…

Burgers @ Beef & Barley

The next eatery to join the recently opened Cinnabar and 7th and Bake at the Kingston Foreshore is Beef & Barley. Offering gourmet burgers and craft beers, Beef & Barley has a very laid back hipster vibe minus the plants with chipboard and timber decor. The outdoor seating provides a combination of benches and high […] Read more…

Lunch @ Cornerstone

I have walked past Cornerstone Cafe in Weston Creek numerous times and finally organised a group lunch one weekend. The first thing to catch my eye were the hipster looking timber spools reused as tables, and timber high tables outside. The menu stuck to the window for passerby’s showed inexpensive prices which was another reason […] Read more…

Brunch @ Double Shot

Having meant to go back sooner, I realised it had been over a year since my last visit to Double Shot in Deakin. I finally returned to Double Shot last week, during the Christmas/New Year shut down period, as it was one of the few eateries that remained open in Canberra. The menu had so […] Read more…

The pollieburger experience @ Hoi Polloi

A few of Canberra’s food bloggers were recently invited by the team at newly opened restaurant Hoi Polloi in Old Parliament House to create a new Australian politician-inspired burger (the pollieburger) that would become a permanent addition to the Hoi Polloi menu. The name ‘hoi polloi’ is Greek for ‘the masses’ and is a fitting […] Read more…

The new Ricardo’s @ Space Kitchen

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Ricardo’s Cafe’s second venture in Woden that has been kept heavily under wraps. Ricardo’s Cafe in Jamison offers a fantastic and tempting range of cakes and cronuts so I couldn’t wait to see what the new concept cafe would be offering. Ricardo’s revealed the name of its new […] Read more…

Weekday lunch @ Milk Crate Cafe

Milk Crate Cafe in Civic has been open for a few weeks now. With photos of the funky looking cafe being posted on my social media feeds, I made this a lunch time destination on a day off. Milk Crate Cafe is located at 12 Moore Street. Not too hard to find as the number ’12’ […] Read more…

More schnitzel @Schnitz

Fast food chain Schnitz recently opened at Westfield Woden. Offering hand made and pan cooked schnitzels, there is plenty on the menu to suit most palates. There are 14 types of schnitzel rolls/wraps to choose from, your plain schnitzel or parma with salad and chips, gourmet salads, smaller snack sized options like schnitz sticks, and […] Read more…

Dinner @ The Meating Room

After trying the breakfast pizza at The Meating Room in Weston Creek, I couldn’t wait to head back for dinner. Mainly for the deep fried mars bar cheesecake that I keep hearing about. A friend organised dinner there one night and I was happy to tag along. I was glad that a booking had been […] 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…
