The Urban Pantry - Manuka, Canberra
|Egg Benedict, perhaps the smallest serve I have experienced, with only several pieces of leg ham bits and a small slice of Sonoma sourdough. A Friday morning in February 2013.|
It is a dinner, brunch, lunch and breakfast place that will do well in any trendy setting. It carefully describes and offers its produce as organic and fresh. It provides options as gluten free and free range. The Urban Pantry has quick acting staff and customers were so relaxed on the morning I had walked over from the Rydges Capital. There were several similar places open that early morning, but this one was the most busy. I had a breakfast smoothie in a tall glass (AUD8) and the Eggs Benedict shown above. I did consider the buttermilk pancakes, but I was bothered with the infused mascaporne so early in the day. The smoothie was made from oats, honey, bananas, almonds and berries, all blended with milk.
|Situated at one strategic corner of the Lawns in Manuka, it can be crowded inside but offers options of el fresco seating on the corridors outside.|
