Lonsdale Street Roasters
3/7 Lonsdale St

This poky industrial atmosphered coffee shop is all the buzz in Canberra lately. Its a smallish place - long and thin and a bit hard to find other than the queues sometimes stretching
outside - with a long counter down one side and tables down the other side (including some communal ones).

The place has an industrial arty feel to it with black painted ceilings, bright yellow ceiling ducting, large blackboard menu's and scattered adornments on the walls (including several bicycles).

I stopped by for a morning coffee and joined the 50+ other people already there.

The coffee was excellent. Good flavours and aroma.

Being weak I was also successfully tempted by the cupcakes there,
choosing a chocolate coconut one and a blueberry one. Although I didn't eat them both myself they were both delicious. I had the chocolate coconut cake and it was feather light with great flavours and smooth whipped icing.

Next time I'm keen to try one of the breakfasts or maybe a panini for lunch. Lighter breakfasts are from $5 to $9 with most being $7. The more substantial cooked breakfasts are from $11 to $13 with almost all of them being $11.

Lonsdale Street Roasters is a busy hectic place serving great coffee and interesting edibles. I plan to return and explore some more!
