The national capital is spoiled for choice when it comes to cafés and restaurants. Our award-winning status is well deserved, with chefs lovingly creating menus using the freshest, local produce.

There are three main dining precincts within walking distance – City Centre, Braddon and New Acton – with Manuka/Kingston just a short drive away.

Try AKIBA in the city, EightySix at Braddon and A.Baker in New Acton. Brodburger at Kingston is worth catching an Uber for!
