Cork Street Cafe, Gundaroo

8 May

Forty minutes from Canberra, Gundaroo is an historic village where there’s a lot to see, eat and drink along its main street – Cork Street. Along the street is the Gundaroo Pub and further up is Grazing and Capital Wines.

Today we’re at the the Cork Street Cafe, an institution on the site of the old police station across the road from the pub. The cafe proper is in the horse tables; a barn of stones and bricks.

Pizza Artigiana, Jamison

16 Feb

It’s increasingly common these days for me to first get notice of a new restaurant through Facebook: friends liking the page, or a sponsored post. So it was for Pizza Artigiana which I first heard about through its common presence in my newsfeed since back in May last year.

The answer is L’Artista.

Mint Garden Bar

5 Dec

Canberra has a thriving blogger community, but it’s not often we see each other face to face. Thanks to the organisation skills of one lovely lady, some of us self-proclaimed foodies descend on Mint Garden Bar at the Gorman House Markets to have a Christmas catch up (and for some of us, first meeting!).

Siren Bar, Gungahlin

17 Oct

Siren Bar and Restaurant opened in Gungahlin this past July and it’d been garnering considerable buzz. So, after dragging Boyfriend out to Bonner to see just how far away it really is, I decided it made sense to have lunch at Siren and see just what everyone was talking about.
