    Lunch at the Daily Grind

    Ended up at the Daily Grind for lunch yesterday with a couple of colleagues from another part of IBM. Most agreeable company and the food was very good.

    The Grind is one of these sorta unexpected pleasures - tucked out of the way between two office blocks and pretty unassuming from the outside. Food is uniformally very nice, keenly priced and often of a calibre you'd not baulk at if it had cost you another couple of bucks per main.

    They provide table service as well as takeaway - I find the former the real strength, good coffee too if that's your thing. Service is efficient, the guys run a tight ship and it's a great spot for dining outside on a sunny day.

    One of the specials this week is a parmesan crumbed chicken with cream potatoes which Andrew and I had, both concluded it was pretty good stuff. Kaaren favoured the seafood risotto which also seemed to meet with approval. I know from past visits they do one of the better chicken caesar salads in town too.

    If you're in the area give it a go - highly recommended :)

    The Daily Grind Cafe, 10 National Circuit, Barton, ACT - +61 2 6273 9077 - Weekdays, breakfast, lunch, do coffee into afternoon, will take reservations, usual credit cards/EFTPOS.

    Update: thanks to Steven for pointing out they do breakfast too :)
