Hippo Co.

Thoughts: Hippo is hard. Hippo is hard because when I first arrived circa six years ago the bar scene in capital city was, well, pretty grim. I guess there was Muddle and Kremlin, but I wouldn’t describe either as particularly enticing. Hippo however, with it’s cosy little enclave and unassuming (ever so slightly) lofty situ...

T.C.L – On Instagram

Were on Instagram! We have decided to launch The Capital List on social media, and specifically/solely on Instagram. No we don't have any affiliation with Instagram we just like the platform & can tolerate the advertisements on there, for now. Morty & I have found that Facebook & many other popular social media outlets have... Continue Reading →

Double Shot

Thoughts: 'I wake up wanting to kiss you', a love letter to coffee. I'm amazed every single time I go to double shot. It doesn't matter what day or time I visit it's always full of people. In no way am I alluding to that fact as being frustrating, quite the opposite. It's always full... Continue Reading →

Coffee Lab

Thoughts: Oh my, Coffee Lab has stolen my heart, and it has nothing to do with coffee! Let me explain. There is nothing wrong with the name 'Coffee Lab', nor their little conical flask logo, nor their coffee for that matter. But I feel on some level the name is somewhat of a misnomer because their food... Continue Reading →

Penny University

Thoughts: Penny has remained a staple of Kingston for a number of years now whilst other venues have come and gone. This seems to be due largely to the fact that they have gotten their formula right; consistently good food, coffee, atmosphere, and service. It is easily one of my most favourite breakfast haunts in... Continue Reading →

The Cupping Room

Thoughts: I have found my caffeine muse. A place where I can ostentatiously sip my single origin pour over coffee whilst my 'friends' take the piss out of me. In all seriousness 'The Cupping Room' is one of the best coffee experiences you will find in Canberra if you really can appreciate a crafted cup... Continue Reading →

Two Before Ten – City

Thoughts: I first floated the idea for 'The Capital List' a number of years ago whilst we were sitting in the original 'Two Before Ten' which used to be in Canberra House. Back then the intoxicating smell of their coffee roasting would drift across Hobart Place and I would find myself purchasing a bag of... Continue Reading →

The Capital List Begins

You’re standing on the street corner saying goodbye to your group of friends as you glance down and notice the stain on your shirt from the evenings meal. “Great...” you think. “A brand-new shirt and now it is ruined, and ruined by a terrible meal from a restaurant that was not only overpriced but devoid...
