As a student of UC it’s almost my designated duty to turn my nose up…
Beat the crowds, ditch the drive and stroll into one of your local suburban gems this Sunday.
Little Oink – Cook
This diverse menu has a very punny sense of humour and is stacked with great breakfast options for all you north siders. Located in the inner north suburb of Cook, Little Oink is ideal for anyone who wants a delicious breakfast but doesn’t want to battle the crowds in the Braddon. Guests can sit and have a cuppa in the tea garden or tuck into a huge ‘boar-sized’ breakfast.
Fox and Bow – Farrer
Sitting against a lavishly decorated laneway, Fox and Bow has a colourful and upbeat atmosphere. Sink those little paws into some sweet scrumptious Princess Fiona (as pictured) or cure that Sunday hangover with one of the best bacon and egg rolls this side of Lake Burley Griffin.
Ricardo’s – Jamison
Our love affair with Ricardo’s in Jamison continues to flourish. Their impressive array of spectacular breakfast dishes won’t just satisfy the tummy but they’ll have you twirling your fork in hesitation because they are almost too beautiful to eat.
Teddy Picker’s – Campbell
The best kind of love is new love! This relatively new player in the Canberra breakfast scene, owned by four young locals, is quickly unlocking the key to our hearts with their delicious plates.
We also hear the Teddy Picker’s staff are quite accommodating with any dietary requirements or special requests you may have (thanks guys!).
Ha Ha Cafe – Belconnen
Situated smack bang on the shoreline of Canberra’s underrated brother lake in Belconnen, Ha Ha Cafe offers an unexpected but welcomed A grade atmosphere. Dine inside and admire the quirky wall paintings created by local Canberran artists or relax on the outdoor patio beneath some delicate cherry blossom trees, just metres from the waterfront.
Double Shot – Deakin
The crusaders of all things breakfast, from strawberry and cream hotcakes to a paleo platter and everything in between, Doubleshot Deakin is tucked into a corner near Deakin shops, offering inner south residents a scrumptious fulfilling breakfast sheltered away from hectic Sunday morning routine of Manuka. And the best part, free parking!
Space Kitchen – Woden
The in-laws, or someone else you need to impress in town? Well, the Space Kitchen in Woden will definitely show off your sophisticated culinary tastes. Being the baby sibling of Ricardo’s, you can expect nothing short of magnificent from the presentation of their meals. This futuristic cafe offers a dynamic breakfast menu and an irresistible morning tea dessert cabinet that I promise no one can say no to. Open Monday to Saturday.
The Knox – Watson
Hungry for eggs and avocado at one in the afternoon? The Knox in Watson has an all day breakfast menu jam packed with anything to please that pesky brunch craving, whether it be sweet or savoury. They also offer plenty of vegetarian options as well as a customised ‘Little Knox Kiddy’ menu. Everyone is guaranteed to be satisfied.
