This is definitely one of Canberra’s hidden treasures. Located on the edge of the Australian National University this cafe is set in the grand Old Canberra House, surrounded by shady trees and manicured lawns and as the name suggests also providing gorgeous views of Lake Burley Griffin.
Primarily a cafe serving coffee, breakfast and lunch (Monday to Friday) and a very relaxed brunch on Sundays the Ivy lake view café is fully licensed and available for private dinners and functions.
This venue would be perfect for a nanna’s high tea, a baby shower lazy luncheon or anything really that involves a vintage tea pot, tiered cake stand and delicate cake forks.
