Shop 8 Garema Arcade
This place has been around since 1967 - the sign says this. Its a Canberra institution open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can eat inside or outside - but outside is by far the best spot. You can take in the busy Civic end of town as you enjoy a meal, snack or coffee.
Muesli, coffee and an extra hot chocolate came to $20 - so its not dirt cheap but it was decent in both quality and quantity.
Gus Cafe has been around for a long while - so it must be doing something right. The food is tasty and there are interesting combinations. Its well worth a visit.
