Barton Cafeteria

Outside of public servant grazing hours this is an elegant place to get away with a quiet coffee.

The ambience is architectural with courtyard ponds and garden. Long low Japanese-influenced mid C20 pavillion look. A cafeteria route snakes around one wall with a bar and an espresso machine at one end.

I say outside of PS grazing hours because this day is central to the day of thousands of besuited drones. Closed weekends of course.

This kind of early Canberra architectural style is beginning to thin out around the place. Enjoy it while you may.

The coffee is well made but stale grind to start with doesn’t go far. Outstanding milk work from Canbera’s white-collar zone.
