As autumn approaches,
we asked local wine
experts which wines
go down best as the
weather cools. Here are
The perfect morning: This is where owner Jarrod Deaton took inspiration from
when naming the restaurant - two coffees before 10am.
The coffee: The eco-friendly culture has produced coffee that is not only high-
quality but fair-trade, organic and forest-friendly. Coffee is roasted onsite by a
brand new roaster, affectionately known as Hank.
On the menu: Enjoy seasonal produce and organic breads. Most of the key
ingredients are sourced locally. Deaton recommends the smoked-salmon stack on
an avocado and green apple salsa.
A work of art: Local artists have worked hard to create a stunning design for the
cafe. The murals on the wall, light fixtures and the stools have been crafted by
some of Canberra's most creative people.
More than a cafe: Freshly-roasted beans are available to purchase, with a variety
to choose from you can create your own blend. Beans can be delivered throughout
the city and inner suburbs. Sustainability is once again considered - your beans
will come to you on a bicycle - built using recycled materials.

DROP 2009 Pinot Noir Mount
This delicate, award-
winning pinot has a
dark cherry flavour
with a hint of spice,
chocolate and earthy
flavours. It goes well
with duck or roast
chicken. Try it with
beetroot - the slightly
sweet and earthy
flavours are the perfect
match for pinot noir.

2009 Meeting Place

This riesling won a
gold medal at the

intense citrus and
lychee flavours and
almost any dish,
with a little spice.

Row and Debacle,
2011 Zenzi Rosato
Frizzante Lerida Estate
This crisp, sparkling
wine is a blend of
viognier and pinot gris
with a small amount
of pinot noir. This
has aromas of pear,
citrus, apricot, peach,
spice and musk. It
should be served ice
cold and is perfect
with pizza. Available
at Supabarn, $12.99
You may have noticed
construction underway on a
new venue in Garema Place.
The owners are keeping quiet
on the details, but we've been
told to expect a new wine and
tapas bar. The latest addition
to the city's eating and
drinking scene will be opening
within the next couple of
Two Before Ten Cafe & Coffee Roasters
Pizza Gusto has been a favourite in Red
Hill for almost five years and has just
opened a new restaurant in Braddon.
Its pizzas are thin and crispy and won't
leave you feeling bloated after eating.
Pizza Gusto uses only extra virgin olive
oil, premium mozzarella and high
quality, fresh ingredients. The focus is
on authentic pizzas, using woodfired
ovens and traditional toppings.
At your service
The early autumn buzz says something
of fruit and honey tones, and for a
mellow, sunset drink there can be no
comparison to the Mai Tai. A quintessential
drink of Tiki culture, this cocktail hails from
the American-kitsch of the 1930s to the
1950s. Think Gilligan's Island, retro revival,
faux-Polynesian decor, and some seriously
hot flaming torches, and the balmy nights
of early autumn will be swept away on this
festival of exotic flavours. Strict adherents to
the original recipe will favour Trader Vic's
concoction from coastal California. Here
we see 17-year-old dark rum on shaved ice
balanced against orange Curaçao, rock candy
syrup and French Garnier Orgeat syrup,
with its almond and floral musk, shaken in
vigorous splendour and garnished with lime
We favour using both a light and dark
rum, so hop onto our website and see how
the experts whip up this classic favourite.
For a truly festive flavour, try garnishes
of pineapple and maraschino cherries,
or perhaps a shaving of coconut with a
tiny umbrella for fun. Serve her in an old-
fashioned or highball glass to appreciate
the layers of liquid on ice, and you're sure
to enjoy your evening with the memory of
summer in every sip.
The Mai Tai serves to celebrate the rich
round tones of a good-quality rum and I
recommend you invest in a brand you can be
assured will treat your palate well. Matusalem
Rum was founded in 1872 in Santiago de
Cuba, They'll offer a Platino for a white rum,
and the Clasico for a dark rum variety. You'll
be able to source this high-quality spirit from
any discerning liquor store. Or, if you're
exploring the Canberra nightlife for a fine
example of this quality cocktail, I recommend
stopping in at the newly-refurbished Kremlin
bar on Northbourne Avenue, or Muddle Bar
on West Row for some truly tropical Friday
