Breakfast at the U&Co Cafe

 

First time breakfast at U&Co Cafe

This morning, Bron invited me for a walk to a local cafe for breakfast with her and Max. While we walked, Max had his scooter which was only put down when there was a passing dog he wanted to pat.

It was a nice fresh clear Canberra morning. I should have stopped and captured images of the bright blue sky but it was so fresh that my nose became numb within a few minutes of being outside. My fingers were too comfortable in gloves to be bothered pulling out my camera.

The U&Co Cafe is in Gwydir Square in Kaleen in Canberra’s north side. I’m not sure how long it’s been there. I know that when I lived in Bruce I’d frequently walk to these shops to buy a pizza or a burger and I can’t remember this particular cafe.

 

We arrived just before 9 am and there were people inside enjoying their breakfasts. The menu is on their blackboard behind the counter. You order at the counter, take a table number and sit wherever you please. The Cafe also has outdoor seating which some brave souls chose despite the freshness of the morning. Soon after 9 am the cafe started filling up with people. I guess it’s a popular place for local Kaleen residents.

Young Max chose a croissant and a strawberry milk shake while Bron went for the French toast and a latte, and I choose the Big breakfast and a flat white.

Max the budding blogger and food photographer captured his breakfast with his iPad and even went for an overhead pro shot.

I’d happily recommend this place to anyone wanting a good hearty breakfast.

I rate it four colonies out of five (where four means I’d happily return for more).

      • No wonder your feeds had disappeared from my reader. Wasn’t aware that you moved. Had to follow you again. :)
        By the way, that croissant looks huge and yummy on the pic.

        • Thank you and thanks for refollowing. The move has been good but there are some problems like followers having to resubscribe and the like button not being very responsive.

  1. wow! all that looks so yummy! I would not be able to walk after that hee hee. I really love breakfast! Especially eggs, bacon and toast. However, the french toast is next to my favorite. that one with the bananas wow!!
    I love how your blog is coming along. It looks so great!
    Your pictures look so smashing!
    Now if only the “like” button would work!!!
    but here is my like ♥♥♥♥

    • Thanks Lorraine. I’m a clinical microbiologist and deep deep down I love bacteriology. Nothing makes me happier than having some time alone on a bench with agar plates and being a scientist again and not a medical practitioner. The colonies of my favourite bacterium, viz., Chromobacterium violaceum are gorgeous and I thought if I’m going to use a rating system I’d use something I’m very fond of and that speaks of something peculiar to me.
