Tucked away in a “blink and you’ll miss it” strip of shops behind Dickson’s main shopping hub, is this little gem. Trevs@Dickson came on strong recommendation from various Canberrians for a casual weekday brunch.

Sporting a solid variety of dairy free, gluten free and vegetarian options, this busy (yet extremely efficient) little spot certainly caters to all tastes. Everyone from government employees, mothers, students, to tradies were stopping in for a smooth and chocolatey coffee fix, a deliscious blend called Black Range by Cosmorex. The matte black four group machine stood loud and proud at the front door, with eye contact and a smile from the busy barista as your first impression.

The delightful menu included an all time favourite – corn and zucchini fritters. As a corn fritter connoisseur, I know all too well that some places can get it so wrong – doughey, lacking flavour, lacking corn! But these, oh these fritters were some of the best: full of flavour, full of corn and smeared with fresh avocado. The add-ons made it especially perfect, and customisable with my addition of a poached egg and bacon. According to the waiter, this kind of add-on system is perfect for the lycra-clad after their morning jaunt up Mt Ainslie. Trevs Taste Collective is next on my list for breakfast or brunch or lunch, the next time I’m in town.

The contemporary interior is decked out in shades of green with a calm and fresh feeling and a friendly atmosphere. Perhaps it was just the adorable two year old with us, but the staff were extremely attentive and pleasant.

With such a choice on the menu, it’s not all that surprising that Thursday to Saturday nights sees Trevs transform to a contemporary à la carte restauarant. Specials on the blackboard like Duck Magret and Feta and Thyme Cigars, suggesting to me I should just take a seat and not leave for the day! Trevs@Dickson really is the place to stay and play.

Open: Weekdays from 7am, Saturday from 8:30, Sunday from 9am. Dinner Thursday – Saturday from 6pm.
