Ricardo’s Cafe


If you’re packing a sweet tooth in Canberra, chances are you know Ricardo’s Cafe. It’s a bright, modern-looking haven of flavour, with a cake display so enticing that it sent us to our knees when we saw it. As for breakfast, go for the Autumn Waffles, with Tahini custard, Manuka honey, pistachio praline and coconut mascarpone. It’s mouthful after mouthful of delicious delight. Find out more

Double Shot Deakin


The first thing you’ll notice about Double Shot will probably be the fascinating wall of logs. The second will be the marvellous, intermingling scents of fresh baking and hot coffee, which you’ll definitely want to get in on. Try the Brioche French Toast, smothered in warm Nutella ganache and salted caramel sauce. Dreamy! Find out more

“Super yummy food and coffee, and great customer service. Very cute and relaxed atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend to everyone!” – Courtaknee

All darkly clad elegance and polished wood, Temporada is a very swanky place to enjoy some delectably fresh Australian tapas. It also excels in both the dessert and breakfast departments, combining them beautifully in the form of the banana, whipped coconut and pecan jaffle. This thing is simply gorgeous, and may well ruin all other jaffles for you forever. You have been warned…

Chatterbox is a spacious, yellow-splashed happy-zone of chilled vibes and tasty treats. It’s clean, leafy and full of awesome design quirks (like the spidery ceiling light), and is fast becoming one of our favourite Canberra brekkie spots. This fact is helped immeasurably, of course, by the wonderful vanilla panna cotta, complete with toasted muesli and a delightful seasonal fruit compote. Yum!

Sweet Bones


A rustic-punky looking joint with the friendliest staff you’ll ever meet, the award-winning Sweet Bones is Canberra’s leading organic vegan cafe. We’re aware that dessert breakfast might not be the first thing that springs mind after “organic” and “vegan”, but that’s only because you haven’t tried the Sweet Bones Short Stack. Pancakes, maple syrup, coconut whip, goji berries… need we go on?
