Where to get your morning coffee in the City

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

Here’s one for all the caffeinated Canberrans out there. We aren’t ready to start our day without a good cup of coffee in hand. Whether your drink of choice is a latte or a short black, we’ve rounded up a selection of our pit stops for our morning fix, complete with their opening hours. Take note, and you’ll never have to start the day sleepy again.
