Just one of those visits that was perfect. Lovely service and friendly smiles. Hot fresh delicious food. Ordered the mexcian eggs, beautiful flavours, huge serving and super hot! My only issue with the meal is it comes with a fresh baguette, and with something like this dish it would take it to another level by having it toasted. Other then that, excellent meal and will without a doubt be back. The menu is one of the best looking breakfast menus Ive seen in a while, looking forward to trying the other dishes! Highly recommended. If you have a large group it's smart to book ahead, we got lucky with just 2 of us but the place was packed, always a good sign too!! See less

Overatted, the 2 times I have gone on a sat morning have been excessively busy. Both times they stuffed up my coffee. The overpriced ham roll was no good, there was only ham on one half of the roll. Another man walked back in before me saying his coffee was wrong too, when I told them it was wrong (politely) the girl rolled her eyes, yep, and walked to the girl at the machine without even uttering a word to me, the girl at the machine replaced it. Wait times were ridiculous. Unless you're really set on going there, or love the joint there's other places with more to offer. See less

Not a great value. The food tasted very ordinary, and the portion is sized very small. The utensils are not clean, and the lady who has taken our order wasn't friendly. The weekend surcharge on top of everything felt like we got very little for what we paid. See less

Great cafe located in the local suburban shops of Watson. This place is a little gem, offering limited indoor seating though an abundance of covered outdoor seating, catering for 2 through to large wooden bench tables for 8. There is no table service. You order at the front counter indoors where you can be tempted by Portugese tarts, muffins, generously sized orange and lime tarts and large cakes. Menu includes breakfast items such as the usual bacon and egg rolls, to healthier style options such as the pumpkin bread with soy and honey pepita or venture into the Buddha bowl for something different. There are lunch options and an extensive drinks list on the back of the menu. Coffee, teas, juices, protein shakes, iced drinks. It's all there. There also a few daily specials that may include teriyaki salmon on Asian style slaw, and chicken san choy bao. You might need a big appetite or just return a few times to sample different aspects of the menu. There are several bike racks out the front to park your bikes, if you decide to ride there. Plenty of car parking available also. A bus route also runs nearby. See less

Food is good but getting expensive. What we did dislike was the weekend surcharge of $7:59 which is typical Canberra but ludicrous given weekends are the busiest times. Not the publics fault if it’s quieter through the week! For two people today it cost $86 and we left a lot of food on our plates. Might be time to have a rethink guys!! See less

Super sad to post this as the Knox was once my favourite cafe in Canberra. Its now ludicrously expensive and the quality has gone down significantly. It's literally about $20+ for a bacon and egg roll with small coffee. It's actually close to double some of the other cool local cafes around Canberra. The new pizzas options are rubbish compared to what they once had as well. The bread is still good to their credit. See less

Friendly staff, probably the biggest thing to consider when the coffee provided by each cafe in ACT has such good coffee! Busy and wonderfully fitted out. Only place it lost a mark was the cleanliness, could do with a touch up here and there, wicked work from all and the guy running the outdoor seating section was great! See less

It is bad that this cafe now sells weird croissants. Once my favourite... so said. It doesn’t look like croissants at all but a loaf of bread. No layers in side;;;; See less

I never like to leave a bad review but was really disappointed by the Knox. We waited 20 mins for 2 pies, which I didn't mind and they were nice enough to apologise as there was confusion with the wait and offered a free Danish. However, when we got home the $8 Pepper Chunky Steak Pies were tiny and filled with gravy and not a single piece of meat. If they weren't so expensive I wouldn't mind as I know it's a really tough time for businesses. Their pies are so delicious but the quality has really dropped and I have been continually disappointed with the quality and slow service of the Knox. Note: I ordered one not long ago and it was still small but at least filled with chunky steak! See less

I really liked the atmosphere. I ordered the french toast with poached pears and walnuts. It was very pretty, but way too sweet for me. I enjoy the savoury taste of french toast (it was a bun) but it was swamped in sweet syrup. See less

Great local suburban cafe serving all day breakfast. Coffees were excellent, baked eggs packed flavour but a tad small in size. The eggs benedict was amazing. Place has a great vibe, the decor borders on industrial and the open kitchen adds theatre. Wait staff were friendly, courteous and prompt. Highly recommended. See less

I had to make a new review! We usually come here to buy their delicious bread, specially the pumpkin one. We also have tried their coffee and it's really good. One thing I was missing was vegan options in their menu, but now they have a vegan menu and the options are very nice. We tried the vegan shrooms and the vegan mushroom burger and we were not disappointed. Will definitely come back to try the other options and as always buy more bread. See less

Very positive, energetic vibes from the heart of Watson. I treated my family to lunch and enjoyed the outdoor setting. Plenty of space and plenty to see in this wonderful corner cafe. The service was great and the menu had so many delicious items, that it was hard to choose. Definitely would go back again. See less

Great food, the pumpkin bread is fantastic, and good service but super super busy on the weekend! We got there pretty early and still couldn't find a table, though it doesn't help that you can't book a table for under 6 ppl, so it seemed like heaps of tables for reserved. They also have a bakery section and their baked goods and cakes look amazing! Definitely worthwhile checking this place out, just either book or be prepared to wait for a table on the weekend.
