Taste bud treats

I've lost count of how many people have recommended Silo Bakery when you mention your going to Canberra — it seems to have quite a reputation for good food. I've visited once before many years ago and I actually wasn't that impressed with the cake I tried and wondered what all the fuss was about but was determined to give it another go. Upon arriving at 2.45 pm I soon realised the lunch menu had just finished at 2.30 pm but the kitchen were willing to cook me a pizza and I'm so glad they did. I wasn't expecting much but this pizza was so yummy and packed with so much flavour. Even though it was quite large and filling I was determined to try one of their cakes as well and the Blackcurrant, Mint and Cabernet Tart looked the most appealing — it was delicious and light enough to finish it all (just) — I can recommend both of these. The cappuccino was also good and not bitter, although a little luke warm due to absent-minded staff leaving it waiting at the counter for about 5 minutes after being made — isn't it so frustrating when you just see your coffee sitting there and staff forget about you and go about doing other stuff — perhaps they were all too tired after the lunch service and had other things on their mind before closing up at 4 pm.

Was sitting at that inside table for three under the word Silo just a few weeks ago. Took many tarts home to Sydney with me. *YUM*
