Double Drummer in Barton
(Three #Canberra Beanies)
In the second week of February in 2013 Double Drummer started serving food in Barton. First impressions are the size and bustle during the busy lunchtimes. The café is well-situated for a large public service lunchtime crowd in a new building and without much nearby competition. It’s yet to reach its full potential, with a new full-service kitchen being planned in the next few weeks (so stay tuned for earlier opening hours and a new breakfast menu).
My colleague and I both enjoyed our lunches. Service was quick. You order and pay over the front counter and there is a separate coffee counter (with wine and beers as well). I enjoyed (devoured) this tasty Peri Schnitzel. At just $13 with drink Double Drummer gets 3 #Canberra Beanies. I will definitely return and try some of the tasty-looking pastas and salads at the main food bar.

It took a long time before it finally opened but it has been a big success so far. Every time I have gone during lunch it has been packed with people. I find if you want to beat the rush get there around 11:45am.
The food I have tried has been very nice and they have a great variety of pre-made food and off the menu food.
I do find the price a little steep compared to other close by options but overall it is affordable for every once in a while.
There is a good selection of beers on tap ( Hahn Super Dry; Boag’s Draught, Heineken, Kirin, James Squire Pale Ale and James Squire Apple Cider ). Scooners are not the cheapest around but range from $6 – $8. Pints are around $10. My team has held a couple of functions here now and they have all gone well with good service, nice food and plenty of room to mingle.
I have noticed they have installed a large tv with Foxtel and the rest of the indoor and outdoor seating options make for a good mix of choice, a little bit for everyone. I do wish they would fit out the indoor section with a proper roof as when full the place is loud.

Thanks for sharing that detailed info Sean! Do you know if the breakfast service has started yet? I heard it was starting sometime in March.
