For those who know their history, the story of chocolate is a fascinating one – but a key point was when Hernan Cortes brought chocolate from South America to Spain. Now San Churro brings the black gold back to the New World with the opening of San Churro in Woden, and there is a whole world of discovery here for those who can’t resist it’s silky sweet charms.


All Day Special - Waldorf on London

11/07/2014 by OutInCanberra

The Waldorf on London has been a feature of Canberra’s inner-city life for 15 years. With a consistent trade and friendly professional service, it’s little wonder then that their dining room has been busy all that time. And with good reason; The Waldorf, as a bar/café and restaurant that also services the always-busy apartments upstairs, has a finely tuned menu designed to ensure the best experience no matter what time of day you might choose to dine.


Calibre Cafe - The Perfect Break

04/07/2014 by OutInCanberra

Calibre Café has become a favourite feature of Woden’s Bradley Street dining strip. Set on the edge of Westfield shopping centre, the café is the perfect place to stop off for a breather, or to enjoy a meal with friends and family. The menu has plenty of traditional café favourites, along with a distinctly Italian flair. The presence of pizzas and pastas on the front page of the lunch and dinner menu may be more than a slight give-away, but the Roman influence creeps through in other areas.


Oliver's at Braddon - Catering & Functions

13/05/2014 by OutInCanberra

In recent years there has been a culinary shift in Canberra. Civic, once the bastion of dining on the Northside, has now given way to Braddon where the epicurean adventures seem to occur at an increasing frequent rate. One thing that has been lacking is a true functions centre – a place where you can gather with a group of 20 or a party of 100 and enjoy fine food and drink no matter what the occasion or event.

It's hard to imagine, but we are merely one month away from The Race That Stops a Nation. On Tuesday 5th November 2013 Australians will break from their work, play or dedicated revelry to cheer as the world’s best run over 3200 metres on the Flemington Track in pursuit of this year’s $6 million in prize-money.


Wandering into gold

28/06/2013 by Matt Kempe

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost. It’s this famous quote from J.R.R Tolkien that accompanies your menu at Alchemy, and it succinctly describes the broad sense of adventure and balance that is Alchemy: the newest restaurant and bar in Manuka’s legendary Franklin Street location. The dark modern interior is certainly of gold standard, with a diversity of spaces – a large dance-floor area, the beautiful dining space and intimate lounge setting – that will make you feel at home no matter your mood.

Friday night marked the official opening of Capital & Co and the launch of ‘Slide to Unwind’. Not only has the newly refurbished bar got a warm and cosy look and feel, but the friendly team offer a $5 menu from 5pm – 7pm on Friday’s.


Come and Play

24/06/2013 by Katey Baddeley

The newly opened Treehouse bar along Northbourne breathes some new life into the popular nightclub strip in Civic. The high ceilings and bar-cross-loft layout ooze sophistication and the life-sized illuminated tree is mesmerising in its beauty. The feel is natural and design unique, with logs suspended from the ceilings and a subtle, forest inspired metallic print over a stormy grey papering the walls. Enormous mirrors reflect the glimmering lights of the tree, filing the entire space with a warm and cozy glow - perfect for winter hibernation.
