We enjoyed a morning break here with our grandchildren. It was the perfect venue with a convenient inside table. The kids loved their chai lattes while we found our coffees very good. The accompanying sweets were divine. We'll be back.

First time we’ve eaten here being glad to find something open downtown on a Sunday morning. Both shad Dobi’s Big Breakfast which was great but a few items weren’t as hot as the rest of the meal. Coffees were great!

Always popular, Dobinsons is a bit of an institution in Canberra city. The cakes are amazing, the coffee very good & the meals have always been of good standard. I had the French toast for breakfast & the others had various forms of egg dishes...More
