And at this time if year you can't go past their fruit mince tarts! Consistently great cake selection, best sandwiches in town . Delicious sausage rolls... pies....quiches...pretzels. all made on the premises. Coffee fabulous. Great freshly made juices to order. Oh....and did I mention the friendly staff. Very relaxed. They even make their own gluten free turkish rolls! Yum.

Lots of sandwich options but still the best steak sandwich in town. They also do amazing vanilla slices (and you can oder a huge vanilla slice cake if you so choose... which is great for an office party or other big gathering)

Love this place - food is all freshly baked and prepared on the premises. Really, really good! Cakes and pastries well worth the calories. Staff lovely.

We purchased a tray of sandwiches for a lunch meeting, each sandwich had a different, interesting and delicious filling, the bread was so fresh it seemed almost fresh out of the oven. They were so good we picked up another tray last week for a road trip to the snow. Buy a tray over the counter or for bigger trays... More

Don't be put off by the apparent size of the cafe...it's small. But the service is wonderful whether you are having an in-cafe serve or takeaway. Amazing how fast the service! The food is so fresh...while the sandwiches, salads and cakes and pies are to die for, they also do meals...to order! Even the fitness freaks from the gym go... More

I always pop in for a visit when I am in town. Great variety of menu items so there is something to suit everyone. The vanilla slice is AMAZING and I nearly always take some away for my family. Nice quiet place to read a book on a cold Canberra afternoon

After reading the reviews decided to meet a friend there for lunch. Sandwiches are interesting and fresh. Great bread used as well. But everyone is right, try the vanilla slice it really is great. Good people behind the counter as well. Will be going back to try some of the pies and another vanilla slice.

Thank katem1901
