First look – The Pedlar (Campbell)

Cafe interior

After a pretty good experience with the new 79&Fine in Civic recently I was keen to try out more of the new eateries Canberra has on offer. Is it just me or does a new place to eat pop up every weekend?
I’d heard about a new gastropub in Campbell that wasn’t at the Campbell shops [...]

5 To Try: Healthy breakfasts in Braddon


Braddon is known for its good coffee and abundance of bars and brunch venues. But no longer does your breakfast have to be a guilty pleasure. I’ve compiled this list of healthier breakfasts you can try in Canberra’s foodie hotspot. Whilst each of these places has more calorific (and terrific) options on their menu, below [...]

At Home with Sophia: Baked Gravce na Tavce (beans) and eggs


Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day. I would pick poached eggs and crispy bacon over a muffin any day! I also love eating breakfast at home; not only is it half the cost, but 95% of the time, it’s a better meal than what I could buy at a cafe. Sometimes though, [...]

Creative Cookery: Banana hotcakes


I made this yummy dish on Wednesday when we had a bit of morning at home. My son was very upset and didn’t want to go school so I thought, if I make his favourite breakfast it’ll cheer him up and it surely did! When I was pregnant, I loved berry hotcakes at the Bees Cafe [...]

The Brunch Run – Wilbur’s Cafe Bar

By 16 January 2016 HEADLINE ARTICLE

I’d heard a lot about Wilbur’s in Hackett, that it was a great place to take kids (but wasn’t a “kids’ restaurant”), the food was great and that the atmosphere was good. I’d never even been to Hackett shops so I was keen to put a face to the name so to speak, and ventured [...]

Dreaming of liberty and croissants

By 23 November 2015 HEADLINE ARTICLE
Dream Cuisine - Serina Huang

On a rainy Saturday morning, I sat with my kids enjoying flaky croissants over chai latte and babychinos. My three-year old absently nibbled on the layers of pastry on my plate, some of the 27 laminated layers in the fresh-made chocolate croissants and Viennese style breakfast pastries at Dream Cuisine. It is some of the [...]

The Brunch Run: Damn Fine Roasters, Westside Acton Park

By 14 November 2015 HEADLINE ARTICLE
Damn Fine Roasters

The edgy shipping container village down by Lake Burley Griffin may not be top of your list for weekend breakfast.
I’d been there during Art Not Apart last year and was impressed by the set up, especially the view from the bar on the top floor. With art exhibitions in containers, live graffiti artists at [...]

The Brunch Run: Black Pepper Cafe

Black Pepper

Across the road from the Belconnen Arts Centre and with pretty views of Lake Ginninderra, Black Pepper scores highly on location.
It also meets my key criteria for a brunch venue: it offers all day breakfast on weekends. Commit this to memory for the next time you need a late morning fry up after a big [...]

The Brunch Run: Poppy’s

By 24 October 2015 HEADLINE ARTICLE

I love the wide, elegant front courtyard at Poppy’s café at the Australian War Memorial. It seems almost too grand for a weekend breakfast outing on approach, but once you’re seated is a relaxing spot for a coffee and bite.
We were there for a post-Mt Ainslie climb brunch, partially inspired by Lisa Martin’s post describing [...]

Books at Breakfast with Jane Caro

By 12 October 2015

[ 23 October 2015 at 7:30 am; ] Jane Caro has been described as ‘a woman who has seen it all, and isn’t afraid to talk about it’. Join Jane as she reveals the delicate balancing act performed by women juggling career and family, explored in her memoir, Plain-Speaking Jane. Breakfast includes a selection of mini pancakes, seasonal fruit, assorted muffins, and tea and [...]

Weekend Cafe Hot Spot: Cupping Room, Canberra City


One of the things I dislike the most about favourite cafes of mine is when they change their menu. I almost have a mini panic attack because it’s no longer familiar to me. So recently when I heard that Cupping Room changed their menu, I was genuinely concerned that it was no longer going to [...]

Where to spoil Mum in Canberra this Mother’s Day

bookplate mother's day

If you’ve left it to the last minute to organise Mother’s Day breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, stop panicking and start reading.
Our guide to Canberra cafes and restaurants offering special Mother’s Day menus is certainly not exhaustive, so let us know what we’ve missed in the comments below.
Bookplate at the National Library is hosting lavish [...]

Breakfast on the go

By 4 September 2013 FEATURED ARTICLE

A photo has made its way to us causing us to ask the question; is the importance of safe driving practices greater than the importance of a hearty breakfast ?

All day breakfast in Canberra?

By 1 July 2013

Hai Rioters, it’s the missus’s birthday on Monday and I was hoping I could probe your collective minds for good suggestions in places that do all day breaky.  
We’re both nighttime people so anywhere that stops doing breakfast before midday is probably out of the question.  
I know it’s not much notice but I’m hoping [...]

Pancake Parlour’s Red Dawn. A breakfast review


The Pancake Parlour in the Civic Bus Interchange has been around so long it’s passed from its cool phase, to a daggy phase, and might just be re-emerging into the warm sunlit uplands of cool.
Barcham and I have been ensconced this morning for the mobile office review (to come later) but we kicked things off [...]

You Are Here festival breakfasts

By 17 March 2013

You Are Here writer in residence, Andrew Galan has submitted this article about the You Are Here festival breakfasts, which you should all probably go to, because why not spend breakfast with lovely people.
Nic Delatovic’s Festival Breakfast with Matty Ellis and Luke McGrath
YouAreHere’s series of festival breakfasts are informal chats occurring most days between one [...]

Good breakfast in Canberra??

By 21 September 2012

I love breakfast and am desperate to find a great breakfast spot in Canberra but everywhere is terrible and overpriced.
I went to Beess & Co in Yarralumla on the weekend and it was appalling…even the toast was bad (and how can you mess that up??). A few weeks ago had Urban Food and nearly $60 [...]

Silo’s Black Breakfast makes Gourmet Traveller

By 16 August 2012

Thanks to Poetix for the tip. Gourmet Traveller’s list of “Great Australian Breakfasts” has a Canberra entry:
21 Black breakfast, Silo Bakery
Silo’s black breakfast is uncompromising in both name and flavour. A dense house-baked rye and grain bread chimes with the deep and earthy qualities of black pudding. Borage flowers and sweet pickled radish add a [...]

Fm 104 declare ratings victory

By 14 September 2011

Canberra FM have sent in the following:
104.7 has continued its unbroken 4 year run as Canberra’s favourite radio station and 5 years as the regions number 1 commercial radio station. Scotty & Nige also continue to dominate the Breakfast time-slot with the most people listening to them over any other show with 83,600 listeners over [...]

Fancy country cafes/restaurants for breakfast?

By 29 August 2011

Anyone know of any nice breakfast cafes around the Sutton/Collector/Bungendore area?
Looking for somewhere slightly up-market for a special breakfast. Something along the lines of the now-closed Lynwood Cafe or Poacher’s Pantry is what I had in mind (and before you hit the reply button, yes, the actual Poacher’s Pantry is an option, just wondering [...]

Breakfast in Canberra?

By 2 July 2011

A friend of mine, a food blogger by profession, is in Canberra tomorrow.
He would like to check out ‘the local fare’.
I have taken him to Silo before. He thought it was ‘okay’.
He is lovely but I really do not want to kick off my weekend with ‘hmmm, these poached eggs aren’t runny.  Gosh that coffee [...]

good friday breakfast – anywhere open?

Pretty self explanatory really.
Is All Bar Nun open?

Early morning breakfast in Civic?

By 16 December 2010

Where in Civic does a good early morning (7am) breakfast?
Any suggestions?

Breakfast in Canberra?

By 30 July 2010

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 [...]

Anzac Day Dawn Service – Where to go for a club breakfast ?

By 4 April 2009

[ 25 April 2009; ] With only 3 weeks to go before Anzac Day. I am looking for a club that does a bus out to the dawn service, then afterwards back to the club for a breakfast. All for a fee of course.

So many clubs used to offer this service but I am yet to find any this year.

I [...]

Breakfast review: Edgar’s in Ainslie

By 9 November 2008

Edgar’s might be a pub, but they open for breakfast and after a hard night Allstarring we were in need of something within an easy stumble of the Ainslie lair.
It’s the second time I’ve breakfasted there and I’m becoming a bit of a fan. The service is fast. The quality is good, and the prices [...]

Breakfast – Sat 28 June, 9.30am

By 18 June 2008

I flagged the idea of a Riot Act breakfast get-together a few weeks ago, and have had a couple of responses. Although I had originally suggested this weekend this Sat is now out.
 So I’m proposing Saturday 28 June at 9.30am at a central location. I am not going to post the venue in this thread [...]
