Breakfast in Canberra?

By sunshine - 30 July 2010 38

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best cafes/restaurants to go to in Canberra that serve breakfast?

I took the family to Silo in Kingston the other week and whilst the food was ok, it was very noisy not to mention expensive! $50 for eggs on toast and coffee for two.

I could have bought the whole chicken for that i’m sure.

What’s Your opinion?

+1 for A Bite to Eat.

Also try…
Beess & Co, Yarralumla Shops.
Pod Food, Pialligo Plant Farm.
Urban Pantry, Manuka.

Silo generally rates pretty highly, though, so you might be out of luck, haha.

A bite to eat is okay for the food, if you can deal with arrogant service.

If you can’t find Satis at Downer, try Watson Shops. 😉

Ellacure in Bruce! A little more expensive than other places, but given the quality of food and service, it’s worth it.

As well as the usual stuff, they also do home-made hashbrowns, haloumi, chorizo, etc. Nothing like having a ‘big breakfast’ that includes something a little different.

Pizzaz in Kingston is pretty good, although very busy and you can’t book. I prefer brunch there…fantastic ricotta fritters and calamari salad. Also if you live in Belconnen Ha Ha Bar on the lake is nice also.

I agree with the arrogant service, but the only time we went there the food was really average, hence why we never went back. I suppose there’s good and bad stories about everywhere…

My votes go to Cafe Injoy at Gold Creek and and Black Pepper in Belcompton :)

I think Cafe Injoy has gone down the hill this year … something fierce! Rude waiters, poorly cooked food (had an undercooked chicken breast where they assured me that a bit of raw meat in the middle is the way it should be cooked – thinking of beef me thinks!), louder than usual etc. Used to be a regular. Definately not going back. Oh, and cold coffee.
[End rant]
The black peppercorn in Belco is fantastic and always very busy. Great coffee, awesome food. So thats where we go now.

Otherwise – the HYATT is an fantastic experience. Expensive though but worth it in my opinion.

Woolworths, they sell cereal, milk, sugar, coffee, bread, sausages, eggs, bacon etc. A lot cheaper.

What ever happened to the good old making your own breakfast at home. You can make anything you want and know whats in it and its a lot cheaper too.

I couldn’t agree more prhhcd, I had a short comment ready to go earlier about my recent opinions of Cafe Injoy, but I decided to delete it given my friends are I were so fond of it for a long time.
But I won’t be going back for anything other than a cuppa and cake (if I have to meet someone or something).

The little cafe in the Jamison centre does a great breakfast, not a big place though.

Sometimes humans like to leave their houses and interact with other humans – strange but true.
