Woden café a real winner

19/07/2011 by Sarah Watt

Canberra has a lot of cafés, some good and some very average. Ask any Canberran and you will hear it is very difficult to know where to go to get consistently spot-on café food at a reasonable price. It is even harder to find this at the right price combined with attentive, capable staff. So, I was delightfully surprised to find exactly this on a recent visit to Calibre Café and Bar in Woden.

Rustic Italian Charmer

13/07/2011 by Jil Hogan

No matter where you go these days, it's fairly standard for pizza to feature on the menu.

Nestled away on Garema Place in Civic, it’s easy to miss La Scala’s somewhat hidden entrance, but once you open the door there’s no hiding the tantalizing aromas coming from the kitchen.
