It’s especially good for breakfast or lunch but also serves dinner. dinner. (The sister eatery, Urban Pantry in Manuka is probably a better choice for dinner, but it’s not open Mondays.)
The inside decor is described as ‘industrial chic’ and it is indeed inviting and relaxed.
However, in summer it’s lovely to sit outside and enjoy the warm evening.
Offering BYO wine at $5.50 per person and two for one mains for Canberra Entertainment Book holders, it’s also good value.
The Confit Duck Legs are delicious for dinner, but very rich, so best shared. There’s plenty of meat on the legs so up to four people could use this as a share dish.
CONFIT DUCK LEGS – Twice cooked w/sesame coated sticky rice, apricot tamarind relish, chinese broccoli & chili soy caramel $34
The Linguini with Squid is popular and the pasts is lovely. Another good dish to share in a group.
LINGUINI – Shaved squid, black mussels, young leeks, asparagus, white wine, heirloom tomatoes & fresh herbs $28
The Banofee Bowl is pleasant, but lacks the special touch of some of the other peanut butter desserts around town.
BANOFEE BOWL – Butterscotch mousse, caramelised banana, banana custard, waffle crunch & dehydrated peanut butter $14
