Eating out in Canberra

Canberra Urbanity: Eating Out

A list of places to have meals, coffee and snacks

There is also a list of breakfast places – click here

This is a random listing – based on visits at different times and on the experience we had. If circumstances are peculiar, then we will indicate this.  The ratings are based on the sort of food each serves compared to my own expectations; and I like good coffee. So watch this space as the list grows!
