Urbanity: Breakfast in Canberra
A list of places to have breakfast
Visits to suburban cafes during 2014 for weekend breakfast/ brunch; we live inner north, so it will be those within easy range. Watch this space as the list grows! all reviews – click here
Hudson’s of Dickson, Dickson Shops
There are three cafes in this location, with Hudson’s being in the middle. I have been to Hudson’s too many times to recall. It is Hudson’s in name only – in that the original owner moved on years ago and the present owners retained the name.
The service is always friendly and very good and this cafe always delivers. Hence it is popular with locals.
We arrived for mid morning breakfast on a Monday. The place was busy – and please note that you need to go inside to order.
Coffees arrived fairly quickly and were very good (good). The food arrived soon after. The mushrooms on toast that I ordered was a generous serving and was very good (very good). The other order was for the Pumpkin Tofu Patties and salad which was delicious (very good).
The atmosphere is always cheerful; can be noisy inside – but that depends as always on whether children are controlled.
In the past we have had many breakfasts here and they always deliver yummy and classic style food. It is totally recommended. It is a good place to meet friends.
Recommended: Rating 8/10 (will always return)
