It's not unusual to find a queue of hungry Canberrians waiting to take away some of the delectable homemade pastries (try the black-currant and Cabernet tart) and breads. It's also possible to sit down for breakfast, brunch, or lunch at one of the few tables. The eggs with chilli jam are popular, while the thin, crisp sourdough pizza topped with a mixture of mushrooms and hint of blue cheese is mouthwatering. Many people complain about the rude staff, but don't let it
keep you from going—the food, especially those pastries, can make you forget the brusque service. Still, don't expect a place where you can linger for hours over brunch and the papers.
