We enjoy a beautifully cooked breakfast. Sat on the bar stools because the place was humming at 8.30 on a Saturday morning. Food and tea were excellent. Be prepared to pay a bit more but well worth it.

Great food but poor service. We had to ask 3 times for our coffee/pastry. After receiving our food it was very nice and well worth the price.

A delightful light lunch of grain salad with haloumi and the tarte flamiche, with austrian beer and glass of wine - Silo never disappoints. And of course,a slice of delicious fruit tart to take home.

I've always wanted to visit Silo but it was never the right time when I've visited Canberra before so my expectations were high.....and I wasn't disappointed! Great coffee, a great brioche and my friends loved their naughty pastries. We went back in the afternoon and...More
