BentSpoke Brewing


Cheese and wine? Ha! Cheese and beer is the future, friends. And, with over 18 beers and ciders created on site, BentSpoke is Canberra’s leading independent brewery. As for your cheese fix? Well, there’s really only one sensible choice here: Smoked Mac ‘n’ Cheese Balls! They’re literally breadcrumbed balls of freshly made macaroni cheese, and they’re utterly delicious. Perfect gastropub eats.

A Bite To Eat, A Drink As Well


Gotta love a good self-explanatory café. A Bite To Eat, A Drink As Well fully delivers on both of its eponymous promises, and does so within a pleasantly jumbled, quirky and chilled-out environment. It’s also perfect for for a cheese-laden breakfast, serving up a lovely morsel called ‘The Gouda Life’. That’s a gouda toastie with a fried egg, complete with your choice of barbeque pork or beans.

“Expect a mish-mash of furniture and a laidback attitude to customer service. If you can handle waiting a little longer and aren’t in a rush this cafe is worth it. Not your usual cafe fodder it offers plenty of interesting dishes, catering to vegetarians too. Plenty of kitsch decor add to the relaxed mood.” – Colsie

The Three Cheese Mac n Cheese at Smoque is a thing of true beauty, served piping hot and packing a proper cheesy punch. It also complements the meaty mains with true aplomb. So if you love cheese but also happen to be partial to hearty, hickory-smoked American feasts, then Smoque is pretty much the best place ever.

Anyone fancy a spot of fine, Parisian-inspired dining with cheese aplenty? Yeah, we thought so! One of several highly regarded eateries tucked away within the Hotel Realm, Buvette is a wide, elegant space dedicated to sumptuous flavours and supreme comfort. Take a moment to marvel at the huge centrepiece painting, and tuck into the most delectable twice-baked Comté soufflé you ever tasted.

Pizza Artigiana


It’s cheesy pizza time! Proper, wood-fired Italian pizza to be precise, dripping with a multitude of fresh toppings. Tuscany-born maestro Silvio Miceli is the man behind it all, describing his work as an “art form”, an “obsession” and a “passion”. Naturally, the ‘Quattro Formaggio’ is the way to go, with mozzarella, gorgonzola, provolone and shaved pecorino. Fantastic!

“Cracking Pizza – Beautifully crafted. The pizza and Beer is true Italian, absolute winner.” – browna1
