We had coffee and cake after visiting the Information Centre. The outside deck has great views. So good we went back the next day to have more coffee and soak up the scenery.

The view from the outside eating area is fantastic, unfortunately this is not matched by the food, the staff, or the price. Three of us ate breakfast here, two of the dishes were nice enough without being brilliant but the fried eggs on toast with spinach was disappointing. The eggs were cold when they came to the table and 6 uncooked spinach leaves were not at all what we were expecting.

There appeared to have been a wedding at this venue the night before. There was still mess and ornaments scattered around the place, not what you want to see at breakfast time. With one exception the staff were generally uncommunicative, looking as if they didn’t want to be there.

This is not a cheap venue for breakfast, (note that there is a surcharge on Sundays) and there are plenty of other places to eat breakfast in Canberra where the food is better, the staff are more engaging, and you aren’t surrounded by the remnants of the previous evenings festivities.

We have been coming to the deck for years.. food, staff, service and views are great. In the last year, we continue to be surprised that the actual deck is filthy, furniture is tatty and table edges jagged and every table has at least one chair missing a foot making for a wobbly experience! A little bit of maintenance and attention to detail as well as some new furniture would make a massive difference outside.

Lovely place to eat and a varied Menu to choose from for lunch. The staff are friendly and looking out over the Lake is peaceful and interesting.

A beautiful Canberra location with Lake views, spoilt by poor service, incredibly expensive and poor quality food. The price for what you get is ridiculous. $4 for a tea bag and a cup of hot water is very disappointing.
