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!
