Absolutely atrocious customer service and coffee! I was having a coffee and pastry with my friend . My friend wasn't happy with her coffee. She waited for the other customers at the counter to dissipate and then asked for it to be remade. Well! Did that get a response!!! The coffee lady got upset! She came back with the coins... More

Bakery sells delicious bread and pastries. The spinach, ricotta, pumpkin and pine nut quiche was very nice. If your in the area and need a snack I would recommend.

Called in to pick up one of the exquisite Flute cakes for hubby's birthday! They have an amazing range. But walked in around 10am, couldn't leave without trying a sausage,roll and coffee. Delish!

Could not wait to drive in for early coffee and pastry after arriving in Canberra. Back the next day for a takeaway pastry. Always a steady flow of locals coming in and out for their cakes pastry and coffee. Back again tomorrow.

Over the past 8 years I've been visiting The Flute and always enjoyed the coffee. The cakes are worth the cost, you can taste the quality. Customer Service has always been good for me and I really enjoy every visit. The Flute does provide receipts and they're getting EFTPOS soon, yay!

I don't ever do this, but I just want to make it known that flute bakery has the most appalling customer service I have ever experienced. Beware- On Tuesday I preordered a large rectangular cake, but that cake was not provided. Instead when my dad went to pick it up, he was given a small round tart. Finding this odd,... More

Been ordering birthday cake for my hubby, my brother and myself from here for 7 years consecutively (and don't plan to stop) coz it's just that amazing! NOTHING in Canberra can compare to Flute's cake. The others may be better looking but taste wise, Flute is always no. 1. I proudly brought a few non Canberrans friends here as well... More

I've been here on my own several times as I feel after a long bike ride the calories are justified! I've always felt welcome so no issues with walking in wearing bike gear and carrying a helmet. Parking can be tricky, but there is a big carpark across the road if you don't mind a walk. Recently I attended with... More
