Breakfast in Canberra?

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?

thanks holden, navigation was never a strong suit…

and mark, haven’t been for a while – new bub does that to your social life – but last i went was delicious, and much better than carlo’s had on offer… the size of the establishment didn’t worry me – or did you mean serving size? i thought it quite adequate; perhaps they’ve shrunk their helpings… btw, welcome to the riot.

I understand there’s a cafe in Fyshwick which will do you a nice bowl of pasta between 9 and 11am to go with your coffee.

My wife and I had a nice eggs benedict each at the cafe accross the road from injoy a couple of weeks ago, not bad prices, I think it was called Federation Cafe (maybe).

Yeah, to bd84 and Rawhide kid, did the OP say, Hey can you suggest something totally useless that does not contribute to this post at all? I didn’t read that anywhere in the post… I dunno maybe I missed it, this is a thread about eating out, not cooking your own breakfast.

I’m a big fan of the usual’s Cream and Gus’ while normally fairly busy they have a good selection of food. Poachers Pantry out in NSW normally has a good feed, it is a brunch menu instead of breakfast, but still very enjoyable. (it’s only a 10 min drive north of Hall).

Edgars is awesome. Eggs benedict and beer.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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 🙂

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.

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.

satis, in downer shops, does a great breakfast.

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

+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.
