Andrew and I have frequented Hudson's of Dickson since the first week we moved to Canberra, more than 13 years ago. It's a cute little cafe where the staff are friendly and the food is delicious and consistent. My current obsession is their creamy mushrooms on toast:
They're good. Oh, soooooo good!
We can also recommend the pumpkin fritters (picture here) and the Hudson's breakfast. Yum.
