One of the nicer and more comfortable cafes in Braddon - in amongst the gritty streets and shops, Gather is a quiet retreat for great coffee, simple but creative food and good service. The coffee really is some of the best in the area and while the barrister can be a bit abrupt, she does a great job. Food was quick and tasty and my bacon and egg wrap was excellent. On warmer days there is plenty of outdoor seating - and enough inside for those bitter Canberra mornings. See less

pretty good place to go for a nice cafe food around Braddon away from the hustle and bustle of Lonsdale st Food varies from absolutely delicious to just average. For instance the mushrooms Benedict I had today (see photo) we’re nice but we’re sitting on stale bread slices. Other days this same dish was mouthwatering Truth be said though I never had a bad meal here and the staff is always attentive and happy on weekdays. Weekends are another story, and as other reviewers attest to, it can be under par See less

Gather is one of my favourite cafes in Canberra. Lots of vegan options, dietary requirements easily identifiable on menu and the wait and kitchen staff are very accommodating and careful of ingredients. Friendly staff, lots of indoor plants, outdoor and indoor tables and amazing coffee. It reminds me of a Melbourne cafe. See less

Great vegan selection on the breakfast/brunch menu. Make sure you get a side of mushrooms-delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. A nice casual place to have a catch up with friends. See less

I visited Gather Cafe last Sunday and I was waiting for a table for 2 - although another couple was waiting well before I arrived, I was offered a table before that couple, which I thought was odd. Upon sitting at my table, I was informed food would take 40 minutes to arrive, I was happy to wait. Food took around 40 minutes to arrive; coffees took about 10 minutes to arrive. The table I was seated at was shared with another couple who started hugging and kissing each other while I was waiting for my food (lol why????). Asked a waiter if it was all good to change tables and he accommodated my request, so that's a plus. Waitresses made a few mistakes, like bringing me food I never ordered, and giving me coffee in mugs instead of takeaway cups like I requested. Food was okay (but the portions were pretty small); service not so much. Probably will give it a miss next time I'm in Canberra. See less

Favourite brunch spot in Braddon! The food was delicious, and the service was top-notch. There's plenty of healthy and creative menu options to choose from. The smashed avo was a highlight. It's also just a beautiful place to sit and eat with an easy-going but vibrant atmosphere. Keen to return, would 100% recommend! See less

Gather Cafe does a decent brunch. I personally think that there are tastier brunch options in Braddon but this cafe is super pretty and serves large quantities of aesthetic food. Still a good time overall and worth a try. See less

Gather has always been in a league of its own compared to other brunch spots in Braddon and our most recent visit was no exception. After arriving, I was promptly asked for a coffee order and received it within two minutes. I ordered the Smashed Avo which has been jazzed up since the last time I had it and I was thoroughly impressed. Flavourful, beautifully presented, tangy, vibrant and just damn delicious. Our only issue was our order not being put through properly which meant our food took a little longer - but not much longer than a typical Saturday morning wait. The wait staff were very apologetic and got us our meals very quickly. If you’re after a delicious, healthy brunch with good coffee and without the loudness of Lonsdale Street, Cafe Gather is the place to be. See less

Great ambience and good value for price! Food was well presented and delicious! Our waiter lacked knowledge of the menu but overall we were happy with the service! Here is a review of everything we ordered ☺️ Matcha oat milk latte = good temperature and latte art but the matcha was quite bitter and lacked smoothness Mushroom Benedict = a delicious filling dish. Perfect for mushroom lovers! Toast and poached eggs were a little over done. But perhaps I was just unlucky. Would definitely order again. Dumpling soup = delicious richly spiced hearty lentil soup served with large generous chicken dumplings. This is a great winter dish and sets Gather apart from other brunch spots. Mediterranean kofte = I loved the vegan kofte balls. They were so moist and flavoursome that I'd prefer them over many sub standard lamb kofta balls I've had in the past. Served with mint and pomegranate flavours that compliment the kofte really well. See less

A popular new cafe in Braddon. It’s very busy and quite aesthetic. The staff were quite friendly and the drinks were nice. However, I felt the food could’ve been more balanced and larger servings for the price. But overall not a bad brunch and catch up place. See less

Such a beautiful little cafe with a great mantra for sustainability and keeping it local. Their transparency about their ingredients is something more cafes should be doing! And with the use of seasonal, regional produce come some banging flavours in their dishes. I had the miso roast mushroom Benny which gets an A+ for creativity and a vegetarian Benny! Before this meal I had had some shockers with Asian fusion but this restored my faith in it :'). The veggies were cooked to perfection in some great sauces and I'm so surprised the miso wasn't overpowering. Basically the balance of the dish was mwah 👌 spot on. End of story. Thank you for coming. The excellence of the food was corroborated by my friends' meals and reactions. What a pleasant way to brunch/lunch somewhere near the city that isn't pretentious and is actually worth every cent. To top it all off they had mini tarts that we got for free on leaving the cafe and these were also so tasty and I don't think I've been that happy in a while. Faith restored in fusion food and humanity. See less

Loved this cafe. We had breakfast on Sunday, busy, but only a 15min wait, and they didn't rush you through the meal. Friendly staff, and great little spot. The honey and orange ham was the highlight, so delicious. Recommend! See less

Canberra has become the next Melbourne with trendy cafes and restaurants. First time at Gather and I was disappointed with the food. All plates come out well presented, colourful and pretty, unfortunately the flavours don’t taste good, and after a few spoonfuls you’re think I just wasted my money. Gather cafe serves a menu of healthy food, but the combination of flavours and sauces don’t compliment each other. I was looking forward to a nice pancake with seasonal fruits, but the pancake was dry and bland. The sauce on the side was purple, blueberry maybe? Without the sauce the dish is not editable. The caramelised bananas was nice but you only get half a banana. I do not recommend this dish. The avo toast look fantastic on the plate, but the toast was burnt under. We were lucky to get a table easily, food came out quickly and staff were helpful. But as more people came the cafe started to get busy and they took ages to serve our babyccino for my son. If you are expecting ‘wow’ or ‘amazing’ there isn’t any from the taste side of things only pretty pictures for Instagram. You definitely don’t get what you pay for! Food ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Price ⭐️⭐️ Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️ See less
