We always enjoy dropping in here when visiting Canberra as their breakfasts are wholesome and delicious with lots of vege alternatives. There are internal & external dining areas.

A regular here, I would get the bacon egg roll when I feel like a big breakfast. It is very tasty and so filling, sometimes I won't even need lunch. Staff is always pleasant to deal with there too.
