Gus’ open again

By johnboy 21 August 2008 23

Fret not people of Civic. Despite some concern about what was happening to the iconic Gus’ Cafe on Bunda Street I can report it is back open after a renovation and looking much the same as before.

For those who aren’t across the history (p 3771) it was the original owner Gus Petersilka who for years fought the petty grey bureaucrats who ruled Canberra for the right to put tables outside. He’s even got a plaque out the front in his memory.

So probably worth buying a coffee there at least once.

What’s Your opinion?

Holden an older sibling went to school with the 15-y-o and had been inside Gus’s house in Braddon. And I witnessed the hand-in-dog’s-mouth many times myself when I worked briefly at Gus’s as a schoolgirl. Gus was notorious – the police HATED him but for some reason couldn’t touch him.

It makes me feel a bit like I felt when I discovered I’d accidentally eaten dog meat in Russia.
