Tried it virtually after it had just opened for the year. Handy to bus terminal and Novotel in Northbourne Avenue. Can sit inside or out. Quality of food is excellent and prices are most reasonable. Service is efficient and personable.

Had breakfast here after checking out other venues which charged twice the price for the same food. A few steps away from the Novotel where we were staying. Very friendly, helpful service- moved outside tables for us so all four could sit together. Good quality service and very generous and tasty coffee- the Manhatten bagels were huge. Very relaxed atmosphere... More

Lovely food and great coffee. Morning sunshine was great. Seats were a bit hard. Central location. Six of us had breakfast and all enjoyed our meal.

Fantastic food fantastic value and great coffee. A step away from the Novotel and beats their breakfast and lunch hands down on service value and taste!! Highly recommend the Manhatten Bagel.

Happened upon this place by chance as we missed our bus, couldn't be happier that we did. My wife said the coffee was fantastic and her halloumi sandwich was lovely. I had a chicken and avocado sandwich, the bread was particularly nice. We were able to sit outside and take in all that passed us by. Highly recommend.

Whilst I was in Canberra, Coffee Ruckus were trialling a new flavour - Butterscotch. I had that both days. The coffee was excellent and the service was top notch.

Had breakfast in this tiny cafe of just a bench and three or four small tables. It was extremely busy, with the two-man team overwhelmed with orders. This in particular was the case with the barista, who appeared to be prioritising the takeaway coffees ahead of the sit-downs. Consequently, coffee service was very slow. Ordered the muesli and yoghurt which... More
