There's nothing quite like taking some time out in the morning to enjoy a good breakfast, but if you do get the chance where do you go? We're after Canberra's best breakfast spot, and we want your help. Do you know somewhere with a unique breakfast menu, or the place that does perfect poached eggs? Fill us in on all your favourites so we know just where to go.
If you're in the city you can check out Mocan Green & Grout, a popular place on Marcus Clarke Street. The line up at the coffee window is always long, but if you slip inside and grab a table you feel like you're eating in a friend's very cool kitchen. Their breakfast menu has some beautiful options, like granola topped with rhubarb and rose, and they'll also do you a good coffee or a freshly squeezed juice. It's great to grab breakfast here when everyone else seems on the go, but you just get to relax.
On the weekend you can take a bit of a drive and head down to Pod Food and Pialligo Plant Farm. They've got some good egg dishes, as well as some interesting options like the french toast with toffee macadamia nuts, strawberries, and vanilla bean ice-cream, or the Kipfler potato soldiers with soft free range eggs, avocado, and chilli jam. Pod Food will also get your morning off to a bang with one of their Bloody Marys.
Head out to Yarralumla and you can try Farmers Daughter, where their crunchy caramel coated banana bread makes a delicious breakfast choice. It's disappointing that they don't offer freshly squeezed juices to go with your morning meal, but their bottled juices are pretty tasty. This is a great little suburban cafe with a great breakfast menu to boot.
Let us know if we've already mentioned your favourite breakfast spot, but if we haven't make sure you add it to the comments. If there's a place that ticks all your boxes, we want to hear all about it.
It would be useful if you included (a) opening time for breakfast week days and weekends if different and if you need to reserve a table (b) prices for the dishes you are recommending (c) coffee prices eg espresso, double espresso, flat white etc.
