While Caphs in Manuka has a long history and is well known by locals it has recently become part of the 2015-16 Canberra Entertainment Book program, offering a complimentary main meal if two are ordered, or 50% off if you’re dining alone.This provides a good opportunity to try Caphs, if you haven’t already, and to also enjoy excellent value.
Another reason to try Caphs is that it’s open 7 days, from 8am until late, and very helpfully even serves breakfast all day (even for dinner if a particular dish takes your fancy).
It also offers BYO at $3.50 per person corkage.
Both indoor and outdoor seating is avaiable.
Breakfast dishes include:
Caphs Haloumi Special – $19
Two poached eggs on a bed of rocket and mixed olives, served with smashed avocado, grilled tomato and grilled haloumi on artisan toast
Sirloin Steak (400gm) $33
Char grilled and served with fresh lemon and Diane sauce (Pepper sauce, Mignon and Mushroom Sauce are other options)
There is also an interesting range of Paninis on offer ($15.50 served with fries),as well as Burgers for about $16 (all served with lettuce, tomato and fries)like the Steak Burger – $16 Eye fillet marinated in dijon mustard with caramelised onion.
It might also be good to choose one of the salads:
Caphs Smashed Avocado Salad – $15.50 on Italian toast with grilled haloumi, grilled tomato, mixed olives, rocket and lemon dressing (Add Grilled chicken $5, Poached eggs $3, Crispy free range bacon $3.50) (sounds not unlike the Caphs Haloumi Special breakfast dish?)
