The Merchant on Kingston Foreshore has much to offer. It’s open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has large serves sizes that are great for sharing.imageimage

Corkage is free if you buy your wine at the co-owned Prohibition Bottle Shop around the corner and show your docket.

There’s a lovely fun decor with both inside and outside seating.

While it’s popular and can get busy, the Merchant is happy to take bookings.

The menu changes every season but the current menu still includes many popular favourites.


The Almond Crossiants $8.50, are baked in house and must be the absolute best in Canberra. They are amazing!

There is also great flexibility offered in the menu. Breakfast is served until 3pm every day and bagels, baguettes and sandwiches are available from  6:30am until the afternoon.

The baguettes $13/$14 are huge and enough for two modest appetites.

The French Baguette $14 is especially good toasted, with plenty of persian feta, prosciutto, cranberry sauce, mixed greens and pear slices.


Service is very welcoming and accommodating making it a true pleasure to dine here.

(10% surcharge Sundays, 15% surcharge public holidays)
