A large range of breakfast and lunch favourites. Avocado and feta on sourdough is excellent. Their delicious homemade baked beans are the best I’ve had anywhere in Australia. Delightful family cafe which outshines any of the boring franchise cafes in Gungahlin. The new decor and jazz music vibe is lovely. Sadly, they changed to an artisan coffee bean from their old delicious organic blend. The new bean has a unpleasant bitter almond and overly intense dark chocolate taste. Their decaf bean is much nicer.

Consistently good coffee made quickly & skilfully. Superb quality Wagonga Coffee is used. BLT sandwich is one of the best in Canberra.

So I ended up in Gungahlin wanting lunch and another coffee, and Early Doors had received some positive reviews, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I was very happy with the outcome!
Long black came out light, but a good flavour. Flat white was of good milkyness, and the coffee came through well. Topped off by a tasty lunch, equals my best trip to the far north yet.

I love the feel of this place. Art, books and a homely feel with a decent and consistent latte. They could expand their range of cakes more though.

Coffee here was very nice and it has been consistent over frequent visits. They are still getting established but it is a great place to read the paper, work on the laptop or to bring my small child for a treat. I think the place will only improve and will happily return. Best coffee in Gungahlin, easily.
