Lazy weekend mornings catching up with your squad or a cute date with bae, brunch is the only answer! That limbo period between breakfast and lunch, where foods on either end of the spectrum are available, brunch aims to please all! Canberra has some great options and we’re here to give you a list of cosy winter brunch locations.
The Cupping room
A veteran favourite of Canberra brunches, the Cupping Room has a solid reputation for delicious seasonal food that caters to a variety of dietary needs. With an all-day menu featuring classic brunch favourites like perfect poached eggs and fluffy French toast, it’s easy to see why it’s a loved by locals.

Sweet Bones Bakery and Café
Canberra’s resident vegan friendly eatery, even the most dedicated of omnivores will find something to eat. With all-day breakfast and delicious sweet treats on the side, Sweetbones has it all. The pancakes and loaded banana bread are highly recommended or try out the breakfast burger with a tofu scramble for something a little different.

Nestled on the edge of No Name Lane in the centre of the city, who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast? Not Doughnut Department. Alongside delightful baked doughnuts exists a small, yet flavoursome all-day menu. Bruschetta is good any time of day, but it’s even better with a doughnut base! The chia pudding and cheese on toast are definitely not ones to pass up either.

Locally sourced, fresh and delicious, Teddy Picker’s is a
top choice for brunch. It’s simple food and brunch favourites done incredibly
well. There’s plenty of alternative dietary options on all the meals so those
of you with intolerances or allergies, here is your
latest friendly place to eat! If you’re stopping in, you really can’t say no to
the French toast – because who can say no to custard and vanilla bean ice cream
