I’m forever in Canberra it’s like a second home now, I wanted to round up a couple of my favourite places to visit to accompany my brunching guide and to get you outside of the civic centre
I can’t pass up a sweet treat so when I heard about the ‘freak shakes’ of Canberra I couldn’t not go! With fair prices, $9 for a ‘baby size’ or the regular size is $12, personally I can eat either with no problem but you are staying for lunch then a baby shake will do!
With changing choices I went straight for the ‘Micheal Jackson’ with brownie, roast Marshmallow with vanilla & chocolate ice cream!
I love a good burger and am always on the hunt for a new place to try, now Broadburger have opened in a permanent home at the old bus depot markets (Kingston) it’s so easy to plan a day trip to both!
My poison is the double cheese which is coated in American mustard and tomato relish and easily eaten with a side of fries. With prices starting from $14 for a single burger chips are purchased in addition.
Located in Braddon this burger joint has people flocking from all over to try their delicious creations!Housed in an old mechanics garage just outside of the city centre centre these guys serve up burgers and fried chicken with a range of shakes or beers with prices staring from $15 Including a massive portion of fries! I went for the double deluxe which was amazing, cooked through and juicy with the greasy sauce oozing out!
Hands up who likes a doughnut? Well these guys are not to be missed while your in Canberra. Being a little exclusive makes things even more so exciting. These beautiful crispy on the outside squishy in the middle stuffed doughnuts are delish and enough to sway me to an unhealthy breakfast and an early Sunday start to catch them before they sell out at the Sunday regional farmers markets (Best be there before 10am to get your hands on one) They also are now stocking in Ainslies IGA and Deakin IGA store along with vegan choices at the cruelty free shop, delivered 3 times a week!
As they don’t have a website follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
Located in one of my favourite suburbs ‘Gold Creek’ I just love coming out for a walk and some lunch over a sunny afternoon. Cafe enjoy is located next to the Dinosaur museum with ample parking and park and fish pond for the children.
They serve their full menu all day meaning if you fancied a burger for breakie then order away!
I’ve eaten breakfast and lunch here on different occasions and am always pleased with the portion size and haven’t been disappointed yet! Chicken parmigiana is my perfect lunch but a bacon and egg roll with coffee for under $10 is a bloody bargain breakfast!
As they do not have a website sure to check them out on Facebook for opening hours.
Thumper & Miss Bunny
Another located in Gold Creek this gorgeous hideaway is located inside the old red brick schoolhouse. With fresh coffee, Toasties and cakes this is the perfect place for a catch up or a drink in the sunshine.
Another restaurant without a website, check them out on Facebook for opening hours.
