ONA, Manuka View this photo on Instagram instagram.com If you’re looking for a good brew, ONA’s baristas have been regularly winning the Australian Barista Championships since 2016. They claimed the top gong this year too, so they’re definitely worth a visit. 2. Patissez, Manuka View this photo on Instagram instagram.com While they’re best known for their “Freak Shakes”, Patiseez also makes great coffee. Pair it up with one of their giant doughnuts and you’ll be set for a perfect mid-morning or arvo snack. 3. Lonsdale Street Roasters, Braddon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Canberra’s trendiest street used to looking nothing like this. From car yards into coffee shops, Lonsdale Street Roasters have sparked a coffee revolution. 4. Barrio Coffee Collective, Braddon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Perfect lattes, frothy chai and milky lapsang souchong tea. Barrio might be tiny, but don't worry if it's full — join everyone else hanging out on the footpath out front! 5. Sweet Bones Bakery and Cafe, Braddon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Vegans rejoice! Sweet Bones Bakery and Cafe is all vegan, all the time. Grab a chocolate scroll if you’re early enough or perhaps a slice of chocolate ganache Oreo explosion cake is more your style. Luckily, they both go perfectly with a smooth flat white. 6. Eighty/Twenty Food, Braddon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Healthy meals and good coffee? Thank goodness for Eighty/Twenty Food, where you can feel good about what you're eating and have an excellent coffee at the same time. Plus if you want a slice of (vegan) cake afterwards, Sweet Bones Bakery is right next door. 7. Sonoma Cafe, Braddon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Sonoma's breads and pastries will draw you in and the coffee will keep you coming back. You can even watch this state of the art bakery at work while you sip your latte. But don’t blame us if you find it hard to leave without a bag full of sourdough. 8. Harvest, Civic View this photo on Instagram instagram.com What used to be a block of random shops is now a whole area filled with cafes. But for a superb coffee, you really can't go past Harvest. 9. The Front, Lyneham View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Although The Front used to be a gallery and live music venue, they’ve recently changed ownership and now offer coffee and delicious food, too. They pride themselves on using local produce and creating as little waste as possible. Bonus: There's always lots of local dogs visiting. 10. Gang Gang Cafe, Dickson View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Ideal for a casual hang out with friends (or even by yourself with a good book), Dickson's Gang Gang Cafe feels like someone's home. They also often host live music and events like slam poetry, if that's your sort of thing. 11. Mocan & Green Grout, New Acton View this photo on Instagram instagram.com In the heart of the trendy New Acton development near the Australian National University is Mocan & Green Grout. Not only can you get great coffee and food here, but you can also try some of Canberra’s local beers, wines and gins. 12. The Cupping Room, Acton View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The Cupping Room is part of the ONA group, so you know their coffee's going to be good. But it’s their food menu that gives them the edge — who can go past french toast that looks this good. The Cupping Room also holds frequent "cupping" or coffee tasting events. 13. Pollen, National Botanic Gardens View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Set in the gorgeous National Botanic Gardens on the edge of Black Mountain, you can have your coffee and brunch with the birds at Pollen. The best time to visit is on a sunny morning where you can sit on their spacious veranda. They also sell a small selection of local goods and homewares. 14. Local Press Whole Foods, Kingston Foreshore View this photo on Instagram instagram.com There are tons of cafes to choose from around the new Kingston Foreshore on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin but our vote goes to Local Press Whole Foods.Their menu includes everything from cold brew to hot lattes and you have to taste their delightful dishes filled with fresh produce. They even sell fresh vegetables and fruits along with plastic-free goodies like wax wraps and cotton storage bags. 15. Penny University, Kingston View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Tucked away in the Kingston Shops is Penny University. Here you can get a fab coffee and have green eggs and ham for breakfast a la Dr Seuss. A delicious array of cakes and muffins are also on offer all day. 16. ONA Roasting House, Fyshwick View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Want to browse ONA's amazing selection of coffee beans while sipping? Head to their Fyshwick outlet where their roasting house is located. Signature beans include Black Betty, The Hitman and Raspberry Candy, which are all best suited for a different type of coffee. 17. Wildflour, Fyshwick View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Wildflour is a new venture from some of Canberra’s old school coffee and sourdough specialists. Hidden amongst plumbers and furniture stores in the industrial area of Fyshwick, Wildflour uses ONA coffee and bakes all their break and pastries on-site. An outdoor, fenced-off kids' play area is an added bonus for parents. 18. Bookplate, National Library of Australia View this photo on Instagram instagram.com At the National Library of Australia is Bookplate. It's a gorgeous cafe with stained glass windows set on the shore of Lake Burley Griffin. After checking out the ever-changing exhibits, sit down for a coffee or even high tea and enjoy the peaceful surrounds.
