This week we are coming to you with the best fritters in Canberra. We have scouted out some of the best spots in town to settle in for a nice long brunch and enjoy some of the most delightful (and great vegetarian) breakfast fritters.
In the perfect location for a cheeky weekday breakfast or bustling weekend lunch, Space Kitchen has everything to offer, from big meals to cakes and coffee. Their corn, zucchini & haloumi fritters look almost as good as they taste, topped with poached eggs, beetroot hummus, moroccan cous cous, dukkah & dill creme fraiche. With the optional additions of smoked salmon, bacon or avocado, you won’t be going home (or back to work) hungry after this one.

One of the best fritters that bustling Braddon has to offer, the ‘Hash Fritters’ are a brunch dream, boasting to have “won people over since the beginning”. Made with homemade seasonal vegetables, these hash fritters are topped with with pesto, citrus yoghurt, smashed avocado, 2 poached eggs and a choice of either chilli salsa or tomato relish are perfect for a lazy, long Sunday brunch.
As one of the most renowned coffee houses in Canberra, you’ll be glad you waited with a fresh coffee in hand until you snag a table for this bad boy. These zesty potato and bean fritters are served up hot with a fried egg, pickled fennel, sambal oelek mayo and greens with the option of adding prosciutto. Yum.
Inarguably the most established café in Canberra, Gus’ in the heart of the city is the perfect spot to meet friends, grab coffees and sit in the sun to enjoy a meal. Their corn, sweet potato and zucchini fritters are served on a bed of grilled haloumi, rocket, romesco and tzatziki. These can make for a delicious light lunch, or add an egg for a filling feast.
Nestled at the charming Kingston shops, Penny University is the ideal destination for a weekend catch up with friends. The sweet pumpkin and cardamom fritters are a welcome twist on a classic breakfast fritter. Served with fennel whipped mascarpone, seasonal fruits and finished with an orange caramel and pistachio crumb, this sweet delight is not one easy to forget.
