    Yes I'm from Melbourne... It was a good coffee but I'm not sure it's Canberra's best... Not by a long shot.

    Grab an iced espresso, and make sure they give you the orange peel! My go-to place when I want to be in Melbourne.

    Very busy at 8 am on a work day. Lycra. Brigade here in force.

    The melted cheese and chorizo panini is too much! So filling - doggiebag required for the other half!

    When waiting in the inevitably long line, remember to act nonchalant. Pouting is optional.

    I come here for the... Coffee. Yep. Not the girl that serves Fridays.

    try portobello mushroom. It's unexpectedly delicious. Will try the beefie stuff next time.

    When overwhelming positive reviews don't quite do a place justice you know you're in for a treat. Full points for decor, as well.

    Awesome coffee. Possibly best in Canberra! Great sandwiches too!

    kmra · April 8, 2012
  • Jonathan M.

    The banana bread and paninis make for a great start to the day, and are big enough for 2 to share!

    Jonathan McFeat · April 6, 2012
  • Quyen T.

    Who thought of combining iced espresso with orange peel? Genius!

    Quyen Tran · April 3, 2012
  • Carolyne K.

    Still the undisputed best coffee in Canberra. Two blends available each day. For straight espresso, try the Mojo Rising.

    9am Wednesday and ppl lining up almost out the door. Why? Because it's impressive. And I didn't see the staff struggle at all. Got my coffee and baby Elvis toastie within 2 mins. Top notch place!

    Quyen Tran · October 25, 2011
  • Ryan M.

    Do not come here when it is busy. The staff struggles!

    Ryan Mongan · August 26, 2011

    Try an espresso or ristretto when they're serving the Guatemalan blend.

    Cuban panini is the bomb!

  • Shawn L.

    Best coffee in Canberra. Very 'Melbourne' in fit-out and feel. Fixies on the wall, hanging pendant lights, brekkie table with newspapers. On-site roasting, wood-fired oven is up! Nice.

    Shawn Low · January 24, 2011
  • Viv Z.

    Try the museli!

    Viv Zilla · January 23, 2011

    Open for great coffee and delicious cakes; the pizza oven will be firing up in the new year.
